    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 his gave GOP colleagues against supporting Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer's 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.

    ------------

    I’ll be glad when this shit show is over with. It was all nonsense to start with and it still is.

    Best scenario is the Senate calls for a vote for dismissal and it passes. The dems in the House then look like the petulant toddlers they are. It really is hard to believe grown adults acted the way they did due to their clear case of TDS.

    Trump will have an asterisk after his name noting a do-nothing House led by the worst speaker in modern times led a full witch hunt because she is simply butthurt in the blood sport known as American politics.

    The ones injured by this will be the dems. They already are. No one can trust them again. They have again proven they are not capable of being adult or governing responsibly. They must go.

    There will be witnesses that are pertinent to the charges, each one has to be voted on, to appear.

    If Hunter Biden testimony is pertinent, then he'll be voted on.
    He is not on trial though, he also did not make an accusation against Trump that Trump is being charged with, Hunter has not been charged with anything illegal by our DOJ or by the Ukraine.


    HOW can Hunters appearance even help Trump in his defense of his articles?

    The manager's witnesses are pertinent, and necessary to figure out the truth.

    The Senators will never vote on a circus......unlikely you'll get the 51 +, but go for it, for all I care, if the law allows it...... Nothing he can say can help Trump get off for his high crimes.... He really should prepare for a real defense of the charges instead of trying to use his impeachment trial to smear the Biden's..... he's acting like THE FIX IS IN for his acquittal, so why not just use the trial, to score some smearing points against his opponent's family....

    :rolleyes:

    Again, HOW can Hunter testifying help him get acquitted???:dunno:

    If he is not removed from office, he will still be guilty, like Clinton still had his affair.

    Hunter Biden has nothing to do with tramps trial.

    Actually, the phone call about the BIDENS' activity is the REASON for the impeachment...

    Why are you so against the American people finding out what REALLY happened, and WHY the phone call was made???

    The phone call was about a Russian media sourced conspiracy theory about Biden that subsequent investigative reporting has failed to confirm. You will find this threat from Rand Paul holds no terror. They have every intention of illustrating this was all based on Russian propaganda anyway.

    You are forgetting that Barr and Durham can follow the money trail, and if the Bidens' stories don't jive than there is a perjury charge hanging over them.
    Trump has every right to investigate suspected corruption, its in the law. The rationale' for delaying the transfer of money, is pertinent to the case.

    The republicans are growing more and more ridiculous by the hour. Neither Hunter Biden nor his father had anything to do with this impeachment mess. The republicans strayed way long past policy differences with Democrats and Independents into fantasyland. I wish that the republicans would go back to the day when they were grown-ups. No reasonable adult would act like they are acting now.

    Separate matter altogether, and tramp is still guilty of strong arming a President to investigate or simply announce he is investigating his political rival, and then he asked China to do the same, and now I hear Russia is also hacking Burisma.

    The congress has the power of the purse and he committed an offense against the Impound Control Act.

    Paul shouldn't threaten that either the (D)'s drop all of this or he calls witnesses. I never supported this mess in the first place but the mess has been made. Now let us know what happened and let the chips fall where they may. Call Bolton to testify. Call Biden to testify.

    Ukraine got the money....

    But the President has an OBLIGATION to make sure possible criminal activity is investigated...

    So put the Bidens on the stand, and let's see if Trump's actions were justified...
