YouTube removed a video clip of Sen. Rand Paul mentioning the name of the alleged whistleblower responsible for filing a complaint that led to President Donald Trump’s impeachment.
The social media platform nixed the clip of Paul reading the question on the Senate floor after Chief Justice John Roberts blocked it during the impeachment hearing in February. The Republican mentioned the name of the alleged whistleblower, a person who many believe is behind the complaint.
“Videos, comments, and other forms of content that mention the leaked whistleblower’s name violate YouTube’s Community Guidelines and will be removed from YouTube,” YouTube spokeswoman Ivy Choi said, Politico reported Thursday.

She added: “We’ve removed hundreds of videos and over ten thousand comments that contained the name. Video uploaders have the option to edit their videos to exclude the name and reupload.”
“It is a chilling and disturbing day in America when giant web companies such as YouTube decide to censure speech,” the Kentucky Republican said. “Now, even protected speech, such as that of a senator on the Senate floor, can be blocked from getting to the American people.”
This is a based Rand Paul speech that everyone needs to see
