Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., called the looming impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump a "partisan farce" and explained that by Democrats' logic, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer should also face impeachment.

"If we're going to criminalize speech, and somehow impeach everybody who says, 'Go fight to hear your voices heard,' I mean really we ought to impeach Chuck Schumer," Paul told "Fox News Sunday." "He went to the Supreme Court, stood in front of the Supreme Court and said specifically, 'Hey Gorsuch, Hey Kavanaugh, you've unleashed a whirlwind. And you're going to pay the price.'"

"This inflammatory wording, this violent rhetoric of Chuck Schumer was so bad that the chief justice, who rarely says anything publicly, immediately said this kind of language is dangerous as a mob tried to invade the Supreme Court," Paul went on.

Paul stressed out that he encountered the "misguided notion of voting to overturn the election either with Congress or the vice president" that Trump launched. Still, he maintained that there is a "zero" chance that Trump will be convicted by the Senate.

"People are going to have to judge for themselves ... are we going to potentially prosecute people for political speech?" Paul said.

Paul further said that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts' choice not to preside over the Senate impeachment trial emphasizes its partisan nature.

"Justice Roberts said heck no, I'm not coming across the street because you're not impeaching the president," Paul announced. "This was a strong signal to all of us that this was going to be a partisan hearing with a Democrat in the chair, who's already voted for impeachment."

Sen. Patrick Leahy, the president pro tempore of the Senate, will probably preside over the trial instead.

Convicting Trump would require the vote of more than two-thirds of the senators, meaning 17 Republicans would have to break ranks and follow all 50 Democrats, an unlikely stretch at this point.

Though the former real estate mogul has much to lose in the trial, which will be beamed live to households nationwide.

Even though Trump maintains a strong base of assistance, the riot has decayed his popularity -- not good for a 74-year-old who cherishes the idea of a fresh presidential run in 2024.

The impeachment managers do not intend to stick merely to bland legal theorizing in the debate.

In a pre-trial brief summarizing their cases they set the tone, descriptively attacking Trump of "creating a powder keg, striking a match, and then seeking personal advantage from the ensuing havoc."

They further signaled their plan to use many of Trump's own public statements upon him, including his January 6 pre-riot speech to a crowd of followers near the White House urging them to "show strength."
