Appearing with Laura Ingraham, Senator Rand Paul (R., Ky.) warned that he believes one-third of Republican voters could leave the party if GOP senators vote to convict Trump.
“Look, I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week,” Paul told Ingraham “and I voted against overturning the election, but at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion, if Republicans go along with it, it’ll destroy the party”
“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul warned “This isn’t about, anymore, the Electoral College, this is about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”
