If a defendant goes to trial on charges of attempted murder — caught in the act with multiple witnesses and a confession — he doesn’t get a pass on the crime by making the case that the victim *really* deserved to die.

Paul’s hometown paper, the Courier-Journal:
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul said Thursday he may try to force a Senate vote on motions that would allow President Donald Trump to call on Hunter Biden and other witnesses to testify in an impeachment trial…
“I believe very strongly the president should be able to call his own witnesses,” Paul told reporters on Thursday, according to Politico. “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.”
Last week, Paul blocked a Democrat-led resolution that reasserted the Senate’s support for protecting whistleblowers.
And after calling for the media to release the alleged whistleblower’s name, Paul went ahead and said the name of the suspected anonymous whistleblower during a radio interview Wednesday…
When asked Thursday for a comment on Paul’s decision to name the alleged whistleblower, Paul’s communications team referred The Courier Journal to another interview the senator did Wednesday with One America News Network.
In that interview, Paul said the alleged whistleblower’s name once again but claimed that he hasn’t specifically said that the person is, in fact, the whistleblower.
Regardless, he said he thinks this individual should be brought in as a “material witness.”
Gonna need Rand Paul's other neighbor to weigh in on whether he deserved that a** kicking
