Republican Senator Rand Paul has been attempting for two days straight to expose the whistleblower at Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. His attempts were shut down by Chief Justice John Roberts, who refused to read out the questions by Paul on Wednesday and Thursday.
Paul’s attempts were noticed by the Twitter community.
It didn’t take long for Twitter users to call out the Republican senator – so much so that the hashtag #ArrestRandPaul started trending on the social media site.
Here are some of the responses:

They are answering the phone at the Sergeant of Arms office 202-224-2341 and they will relay your wish to arrest Rand Paul. DO IT NOW! Call for his arrest! #ArrestRandPaul

If you aren't in handcuffs by the end of the day for violating the law and naming the whistleblower, then the rule of law in this country is truly dead. #ArrestRandPaul

If Rand Paul is not punished to the fullest extent of the law, he too, will be above the law – encouraging all Republicans in their criminal anarchy. #ArrestRandPaul

The whistleblower complaint was entirely corroborated by witnesses testimony, the call transcript and Trump’s own confessions.
Rand Paul, Trump and other republican autocrats want revenge.
They want the whistleblower dead.
This is America; not Russia.#ArrestRandPaul

Rand Paul just outed the whistleblower on his twitter account and to the press. He needs to be charged with violating the Whistleblower Act. #ArrestRandPaul

He ran out of the room when the Chief Justice refused to read his question about the whistleblower.

Rand Paul is not the brightest bulb but this is an intentional malicious wreckless act outing the whistleblower who’s complain was corroborated. Rand Paul wants this person in danger. He is absolute scum. #ArrestRandPaul
