Sen. Rand Paul could force a vote on the Senate floor that would bring Hunter Biden or other White House-favored impeachment witnesses to an impeachment trial.

Paul said on Thursday he’s considering forcing votes on motions in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial allowing Trump to bring his own witnesses. The Kentucky senator and close Trump ally has urged Congress to call Hunter Biden as a witness for his work at a Ukrainian energy company.

“I believe very strongly the president should be able to call his own witnesses,” Paul told reporters on Thursday. “The rules that are put forward will be amendable, so yes I will consider strongly that the president should get his full due process, which to me means bringing in his own witnesses.”

Such a vote would need a majority, meaning Democrats and a handful of Republicans can defeat them fairly easily. But those votes are likely to be difficult for GOP senators facing reelection who are trying to balance their support of Trump with appeals to independent voters.

Pretty clear that this vote, if it even happens, will not succeed in forcing Hunter Biden’s testimony.

So obviously this is just Rand Paul sucking up to Trump in that sloppy sycophantic way that Republicans now adopt in order to stroke his outsized ego and keep him from punishing them in some way.

One of the things I am desperate to learn at some point is just how Trump managed to break the spirit of all of these Republicans like Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, and Rand Paul, and force them to allow him to ride them around in a circle like tethered ponies at a local state fair. 

That is truly one of the great mysteries of our time.

    I have no problem with Hunter Biden testifying. If he has nothing to hide, go for it! If he does, well……

    NONE of these people are squeaky clean.
    We all get that, right?

    Maybe Trump learned those “methods” from his Russian pals. Blackmail is so inconvenient.

    Rand Paul. The guy who blusters and talks tough, then walks it all back and votes like the cowardly lap dog he is. He’ll lose. This is just for show. So he can say he tried.

    I wish someone would primary him out too.

    Why? Was Hunter Biden in on the phone call, too?

    The demise of the GOP. Of course they’re hanging on lest they be offed mobster-in-chief.
    Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

      She came off as a real bitch as far as I am concerned. too lazy to read the rules then whining Schiff wouldn’t let her speak and going to the press about it, she really got smacked down on twitter. then forcing the former ambassador to sit there while she read all those clips about Schiff and the whistleblower, after the the former ambassador stated her concerns about smearing people.

    LOL. Rand Paul wants to allow trump to bring his own witnesses, how about all those witnesses that trump won’t allow to speak, are they going to show up also?

    they have got nothing, so they are going to distract with Hunter Biden, which is probable going to sink Biden’s campaign like Comey sunk Hillary with the emails.

    Pelosi has a long list of crimes committed by trump, bribery is just the beginning.

      Comey is a different matter. The pious egomaniac assumed that Hillary Clinton would survive him throwing her to the wolves to protect his investigation of Trump. He should have told Ghouliani to fuck off or he’d finish Trump instead. Comey has a terrible god-complex. He should rot in hell.

      The publicity won’t hurt Joe Biden, having the whole country know the lengths that Trump went to to force some poor little comedian in a poor country under attack by Putin to fake a public investigation to help Trump get reelected is not going to hurt Joe Biden. If anything, the reverse could happen since Trump obviously sees Biden as a huge threat.

    Kentuckians will insist that they’re good people but how can they possibly be good people when they elevate fuckers like Rand Paul and Moscow Mitch?
