Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is putting Senate RINOs on notice, making it clear that if they vote to allow witnesses during the Senate trial of President Trump, those turncoat lawmakers will be forced to vote on whether or not to subpoena Hunter Biden and the Ukraine whistleblower as a result of their actions.
Paul confirmed on Wednesday that he will force Senate RINOs to go on the record if they flip and join Democrats to allow testimony from witnesses during Trump’s upcoming Senate trial.
“If you vote against Hunter Biden, you’re voting to lose your election, basically. Seriously. That’s what it is,” Paul said during an interview with his Senate office. “If you don’t want to vote and you think you’re going to have to vote against Hunter Biden, you should just vote against witnesses, period.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has warned Paul not to pull his stunt, hoping to protect the Senate RINOs from electoral accountability for their actions. Paul is undaunted by McConnell’s lack of a spine and is prepared to put every legislator on the record regardless of his objections.
“My first preference would be to be done with it as soon as possible and not to have any witnesses,” Paul said. “If they insist on having people like Bolton coming forward, my insistence will be not just one witness. But that the president should be able to call any witnesses that he deems necessary to his defense.”
Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME), Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) are calling for a vote to consider witnesses. One of the prime witnesses is expected to be jilted former administration member John Bolton, who has publicly expressed his enthusiasm with testifying before the Senate.
“The House has concluded its Constitutional responsibility by adopting Articles of Impeachment related to the Ukraine matter. It now falls to the Senate to fulfill its Constitutional obligation to try impeachments, and it does not appear possible that a final judicial resolution of the still-unanswered Constitutional questions can be obtained before the Senate acts,” Bolton wrote last month.
“Accordingly, since my testimony is once again at issue, I have had to resolve the serious competing issues as best I could, based on careful consideration and study. I have concluded that, if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony, I am prepared to testify,” Bolton added.
Paul senses that the fix is in against President Trump, and he is making it clear that he will use his power within the process to make Senate RINOs show their true colors. Despite disagreements with the President on privacy and war powers issues, Paul has been Trump’s most steadfast ally in the Senate when it comes to combating the impeachment witch hunt.
“Sometimes it’s good to have people unified. … I’m for immediate dismissal, but I know it’s not just four [senators]. There might be 10 that are against immediate dismissal. It’ll just be a vote that fails,” Paul said.
“When it’s something that we’re trying to stay together and there is the other team trying to attack our leader, I think it behooves us to have as much unanimity as we can,” he added.
The Senate trial of President Trump is expected to begin as early as next week.
115 House Republicans Sign Onto Effort to Remove Neocon Liz Cheney as GOP Chair
Cheney’s unfit to lead.
A majority of House Republicans have signed onto a letter expressing no confidence in GOP conference chair Liz Cheney, following the neoconservative Wyoming member of Congress’ vote to impeach President Donald Trump.
115 Republicans have signed onto a ‘no confidence’ letter, a strong majority of the House’s GOP caucus of 211. Ten Republicans moved to betray President Trump on the sham impeachment, which is only slated to proceed in the Senate now that Trump has left office. The Senate lacks the jurisdiction to convict a private citizen, although Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer hopes to bar the 45th President from running for federal office again.
House conservatives have more than 115 signatures on their petition aimed at removing House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from her leadership position, a senior GOP aide tells me.

Cheney has since been officially censured by the Carbon County, Wyoming Republican Party, with the latter expressing their strong disapproval in Cheney’s betrayal of President Trump.
"The censure resolution passed in a unanimous vote by the 45-member central committee."

Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, now lacks the support to act in a leading capacity of the Republican Caucus. She’s already attracted a primary challenger, Wyoming State Senator Anthony Bouchard.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has declined to move against Cheney, opting to keep her in a position of leadership even after betraying the President and her party. Establishment neocons such as Cheney are hoping to move the Republican Party back to a globalist vision of ‘invade the world, invite the world,’ attempting to sweep President Donald Trump’s governing vision of “America First” under the rug.
Cheney Republicanism no longer represents a way forward in the Republican Party.
