Senator Rand Paul has promised to force a vote on Hunter Biden’s testimony if the GOP allows witnesses at Trump’s impeachment trial.
According to The New York Post:
Sen. Rand Paul pledged to force votes on calling witnesses Republicans want to hear from if the party decides to support the Democrats’ requests for impeachment witnesses.
“My colleagues can’t have it both ways. Calling for some, while blocking others. 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!” the Kentucky Republican tweeted Monday night.
For months, Paul and other high-profile Republicans have publicly requested that lawmakers hear from Hunter about his time on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma while his father served as vice president.
GOP lawmakers, including Paul, have argued that the younger Biden earned illicit profits from the corrupt company thanks to his father’s position.
The GOP has argued that the actions of the Bidens and the questionable ethics were enough to warrant President Trump to ask Ukraine to look into it.
