Dem Sen. Patrick Leahy Hospitalized For Observation

CNBC reports:

Sen. Patrick Leahy, the Vermont Democrat who is set to preside over the upcoming impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, was taken to a Washington hospital for evaluation Tuesday afternoon after “not feeling well,” his spokesman said.

Leahy, 80, is the president pro tempore of the Senate, who is responsible for presiding over that chamber in the absence of Vice President Kamala Harris. Leahy’s status in the Senate puts him third in line in the order of presidential succession, after Harris and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
