Rand Paul pledges to force Hunter Biden vote if GOP backs Dem impeachment witnesses

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) sent a public warning shot on Monday night, saying that if Republicans support Democrats' impeachment witness requests, then he will force votes during the trial on calling witnesses conservatives want to hear from.

"My colleagues can’t have it both ways. Calling for some, while blocking others," Paul tweeted, referencing a Politico report on a similar private warning he gave his GOP colleagues against supporting Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer's (D-N.Y.) request that former national security adviser John Bolton testify.

"If we are going to give a platform to witnesses the Dems demand, I look forward to forcing votes to call Hunter Biden and many more!" Paul continued.

Paul's public warning comes as Senate Republicans are privately haggling over the rules resolution for President Trump's impeachment trial.

4. Someone should call his Biden and raise him one Giuliani

Actually Rand is just being Rand. It wouldn’t be Monday if he wasn’t a thorn in someone’s side.

"witnesses"

6. He really doesn't understand how impeachment

works does he. You only get to call witnesses that have information pertinent to the trial.

15. Oh FFS. Even if Hunter was doing something shady,

which I don't believe he was, you don't handle that by extorting a country by withholding the military aid Congress voted to give them. Of course Rand Paul knows this.
