Dem Sen. Patrick Leahy hospitalized after swearing in as president pro tem

Top Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday afternoon after reportedly not “feeling well,” his office revealed in a statement.

Details of Leahy’s condition have yet to be released by the senior Senator’s office, but the Hill reported that the Vermont senator’s attending physician recommended hospitalization of the 80-year-old out of an “abundance of caution.”

After reportedly complaining of “not feeling well,” Leahy was examined by a physician, and then transported to an area hospital.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the Attending Physician recommended that he be taken to a local hospital for observation, where he is now, and where he is being evaluated,” Leahy spokesperson David Carle confirmed.

Leahy’s hospitalization occurred just hours after being sworn in to preside over the upcoming impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.

The task of presiding over the trial was bestowed on Leahy because of his position as president pro tempore of the Senate, making him constitutionally the second-highest-ranking official in the Senate, taking over from GOP Senator Chuck Grassley (R-OH).

The Senate received the article of impeachment from the House on Monday, and jurors for the trial were sworn in on Tuesday afternoon. The trial is expected to begin on February 8.

The nature of Leahy’s illness is unknown at the time of this publication. This is a developing story.

  1. He belongs in HOSPICE, 80 YEARS OLD = that’s what we have TOO MANY of there in Washington, and he should have taken biden with him…

    1. Sir Winston Churchill said with various changes, “If your not a liberal in your 20’s, you have no heart; if your not a conservative in your 50’s, you have no head.” NOW THAT explains the old democrats we have in Congress. Why did Pelosi appoint 9 people to prosecute the current impeachment ??? Because one democrat isn’t smart enough !!!

      1. Hey “Dan the Man,” Enjoyed your insightful statement.
        For Pelosi and Leahy who are both in their 80’s. the key word is “CLUELESS.”
        In fact, that is a symbol for the Democrats with the likes of Max Waters, Chucky “Cryin” Schumer, A. Schiff, etc.

    2. Now, wait a minute, there, whippersnapper, I’m way older than Leahy as is my husband and neither of us deserves to be in Hospice because of age. We have all of our wits and then some. Of course, we are intelligent enough to know we don’t belong in DC either, and therein lies the big difference. INTELLIGENT!!!

      1. I think you misunderstood Dan, P. Observer, he was referring to those in their 50s that remained Liberals, today most so-called Liberals support Communism, whether they’re smart enough to realize it or not. JFK would despise what his party has become, he was pro-America.

      2. Kindly excuse, I meant to clarify that these are all CLUELESS politicians.
        Not true American’s like ourselves as my wife & I both just hit 70.
        Let me fire another missile on a sensitive but very troubling issue.
        We are also both Catholic’s and Biden & Pelosi are also ways glad to say they are Catholic’s.
        Yet, they both support abortion, at all stages, and the funding of abortion.
        This is pure evil and murder.
        They should not only be denied the Eucharist but threatened with ex-communication.
        Actions have consequences and watch them flinch and change their tune.
        We need Catholic leaders to deliver this message & especially to those in visible public positions.

      3. I agree, Political Observer. I’m in my mid 80’s and the doctor marvels at my health for a lady my age. I’ve been a widow since ’95, but God has blessed me – no pill bottles for me yet! I do a lot of research for others, and take care of my own needs. I believe some of those ”oldsters” in congress ARE senile (as well as corrupt) though, and shouldn’t be holding such crucial government positions. I also believe in the adage, ”Whom God would destroy he first makes mad” or words to that effect..

  2. How do you impeach some one who is no longer in office. There are laws but when do laws mean anything to the demarcates.

    1. THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE IT IS ALL A SHAM….AND THEY ARE GOING TO LOSE. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. WE ARE ALL WITNESSING THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF THE SO CALLED DEMON-CRAT PARTY.

  3. ““You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:43-48‬ ‭NIV‬‬
    https://www.bible.com/111/mat.5.43-48.niv …..as hard as it is im gonna pray for Democrats

    1. Amen Jeremiah!!! GODs Word says to pray for em. In Romans 12 The LORD says,
      It is Mine to avenge, and make no mistake, The LORD will avenge this evil!!!

  4. If I were the Senator I would take this as a sign that God is not pleased with this attack on a man who served as president of the United States. Leahy should refuse to participate in this Bogus Impeachment. He was just warned by his maker!!!

    1. Sometimes Karma comes into play very quickly. It might be knocking on Leahy’s door right now. Remember that song by Tony Orlando….KNOCK THREE TIMES ON THE CEILING….AAAHHHH..HAAAA

  5. If anyone has a brain you can see what the Demos are doing to our Country….!!!They are so full of HATE…give it a few years and we will be going to Putin s House for Tea……….

  6. I do not wish anyone harm but he needed to go many years ago. He is one of those who do not know when he should retire but keeps hanging on because he loves the power and attention he is getting. Leahy, just retire immediately!

  7. Be sure your sins will find you out, Senator be aware God is watching, I think you might want to discuss it with him

  8. This is a sign from God, warning him and stopping him for wanting to do wrong. God rebukes those who do wrong just like he rebuked David. The democrats need to heed what just happened. And stop all their evil and hate or else they will be next. God hears our prayers and I have prayed incessingly to heal our nation with out stopping. They all have destroyed our nation and GOD IS IN CONTROL WHETHER YOU WANT TO BELIEVE IT OR NOT.

  9. we need term limits on Congress and no one over the age of 70. these people have been in their for decades, time for a change of command. Need to replace pelosi, schummer, waters, Warren, and all the rest in their 80’s. . Hey Pelosi how, about giving some of your billions back to the united states ,that you or your cronies have been taking and not showing anything of it, But causing Trouble for our Country.

  10. I hope the best for Senator Leahy and a quick recovery. Politically we don’t agree on much. But I hope he is well soon

  11. JUST MAYBE HE WOULD HAVE FOUND PRESIDENT INNONCENT AND THE CORRUPT DEMO KNEW THIS AND TRIED TO GIVE HIM A DRINK WITH SOMETHING IN IT TO MAKE HIM SICK AND POSSIBLY DIE. SURE HOP NOT. GOD IS SPEAKING AND DOING IT LOUDLY BUT DEMOCRATS ARE NOT LISTENING. BIDEN POTUS (HARD TO SAY THAT) IS A PUPPET OF OBAMAS WHO IS HAVING HIM SIGN ALL THESE CHANGES, OBAMA SHOULD BE QUESTIONED IN PUBLIC WHY HE SIGNED THEM, W/O ANY TELEPROMTERS OR BUG IN HIS EAR OR HELP FROM ANYONE. I AM SURE HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND ONE THING HE SIGNED, THERE WAS ONE THEY HAD TO REMIND HIM TO SIGN IT JOSEPH………. HE LOOKED CONFUSED. OF COURSE HE HAS LOOKED CONFUSED FOR A LONG TIME. SAD BUT HE HE ENVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN ELECTED
