    ......On the issue of impeachment, Paul noted that Americans want fairness and that they are not “going to judge fairness, when they’re accusing President Trump of the same thing Joe Biden did, threatening the aid, if some kind of corruption’s not investigated.”


    Paul then highlighted a defense of Trump’s actions that is likely to pick up steam in upcoming weeks, saying that current U.S. law prevents the U.S. from providing aid to corrupt countries, and so Trump would have to ask for an investigation into the Bidens, who Trump believes is corrupt, in order to be able to provide the aid.

    “Foreign aid, by law, can only go out to countries that are not corrupt,” Paul said. “So, if you think that a country is acting in a corrupt way, a president can always withhold aid until the corruption is fixed. So, you’re going to have to get into the mind of Trump and his advisers and say, ‘Well, he didn’t really believe that the Bidens were corrupt.’ I think he absolutely does. I think you could give him a lie detector test and say, ‘Do you think the Bidens were corrupt? And do you think you were investigating corruption, and that corruption is in the law, that you can’t give aid to a country that has corruption?'”

    “This ends up being a policy debate and a partisan debate,” Paul continued. “And it has nothing to do with legality or illegality or impeachment. It’s purely a partisan way of trying to overturn the election.”

    The left and the Dems have tried since the beginning to stop President Trump from taking actions that are part and parcel of his executive authority. Many lawsuits have been filed against him in various areas and for the most part these attempts have been shot down when heard in the courts.

    This impeachment is not about the law. It's pure political hate and Trump WILL be impeached.

    No he wont. The house of reps will likely pass articles of impeachment in a partisan vote but the Senate will not impeach him.
