Rand Paul is claiming that a majority of US Senators want to dismiss the articles of impeachment.
According to The Daily Wire:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told The Washington Post on Wednesday that Senate Republicans have nearly all the votes they need to dismiss Democrats’ partisan articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump and that they are just waiting to hear back from a few Senators.
“There are 45, with about five to eight wanting to hear a little more,” Paul said in reference to Republicans’ 53-47 majority in the Senate. “I still would like to dismiss it, but there aren’t the votes to do it just yet.”
Paul said that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) is unifying the Republican senators with a lot of the things that Schiff is saying during the trial and that he intends to push dismissing the case in the near future.
“I will push it at some point,” Paul said. “The more Adam Schiff speaks, the more we become unified.”
Rand called Bolton a disgruntled former employee when asked if he should testify in the senate.
