The hashtag #ArrestRandPaul started trending Thursday after the Kentucky Republican walked out of the Senate because Chief Justice John Roberts wouldn't read his impeachment question.
When Roberts blocked his question, Paul walked out of the Senate and read it aloud to reporters behind a podium before tweeting it out.
Paul has named the alleged whistleblower before and has repeatedly urged that the tipster be outed publicly.
The whistleblower's identity has not been revealed or verified publicly, which is why The Courier Journal and USA TODAY are not publishing the person's alleged name.
After he tweeted the alleged tipster's name Thursday, the hashtag #ArrestRandPaul started trending nationally alongside other related tags.
"Anybody who doesn’t speak out against Rand Paul outing the #Whistleblower in an interview today, may as well have done it themselves.
Sometimes it’s what you fail to say that speaks louder than anything you’ve ever shouted from the rooftops. »
