Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) stormed out of the Senate floor on Thursday after Chief Justice John Roberts refused to read his question about the government whistleblower that made the initial complaint about Donald Trump’s attempt to obtain dirt on Joe Biden from the Ukrainian government.
Paul first attempted to ask a question about the whistleblower at the center of the Ukraine scandal on Wednesday and was rebuffed by the chief justice. The same thing happened on Thursday.
NEW: "The presiding officer declines to read the question as submitted," Chief Justice John Roberts said after Sen. Rand Paul submitted a question.

Paul was quickly seen leaving the Senate floor and shortly taking to Twitter afterward.
My question today is about whether or not individuals who were holdovers from the Obama National Security Council and Democrat partisans conspired with Schiff staffers to plot impeaching the President before there were formal House impeachment proceedings.
