@RandPaul needs a civic lesson. Here it is:

Impeachment is the equivalent to a grand jury. A grand jury finds, based upon the evidence that has been presented to it, there is or is not, probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed by a criminal suspect.
Grand jury proceedings are secret. No judge is present; the proceedings are led by a prosecutor; and the defendant has no right to present his case or (in many instances) to be informed of the proceedings at all.
If an federal officer is impeached, the House has voted as a grand jury probable cause exists a crime has been committed.
Trial happens in the Senate where the impeached individual is tried under Senate rules derived from the Constitution for criminal trials as stated in the #5A says, “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a
“presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb;
“nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
The #6A says, “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by
“law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.”
I’m ashamed a United States Senator sworn to support and defend the Constitution doesn’t understand the Constitution.
