A two-minute clip distributed on social media by Project Veritas shows Jurek downplaying the horror of Joseph Stalin's forced labor camps, suggesting Sanders's "free education" platform is aimed at "de-Nazifying" Trump supporters and saying billionaires should be thrown into gulags to make them empathize with the "working class." "Germany had to spend billions of dollars re-educating their f-king people to not be Nazis," Jurek said, after Project Veritas' journalist asks him whether "MAGA People" could be "re-educated" if Sanders wins in 2020. "We're probably going to have to do the same f-king thing here."

"If we are going to give a platform to witnesses the Dems demand, I look forward to forcing votes to call Hunter Biden and many more!" Paul continued.

His announcement also comes on the eve of the seventh Democratic debate which he did not qualify to participate in due to a lack of qualifying polls towards Democratic National Committee polling thresholds, according to ABC News' analysis.

Once the trial begins, all legislation is expected to be delayed for weeks. But a resolution from Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) can come to the Senate floor as soon as Tuesday morning, and he has been trying to win over the four GOP votes needed, in addition to every Democratic senator, to get to 51 votes.
