YouTube has removed a video from its platform that shows Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) stating on the Senate floor the name of a person who he says is the whistleblower whose complaint triggered the impeachment inquiry of President Trump.

The company, home to millions of hours of video content, told Politico in a statement on Thursday that “videos, comments, and other forms of content that mention the leaked whistleblower’s name” violate its community guidelines and that they will be removed from the site.

The article goes on to state the following:

“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,” Ivy Choi, a spokesperson, said.
