(RightWing.org) – Republicans across the board prepared for the impeachment case’s transfer to the Senate. While every one of them played an essential role in prepping the Senate for a fair trial, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) may have gone above and beyond the call of duty. He embarked on a mission to gather at least one-third of the Senate to support the notion of dismissing impeachment charges.
Paul got 45 Republicans on board with the cause.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a leading ally of President Trump, told The Washington Post in an interview Wednesday that 45 Republicans are ready to dismiss the charges against the president. https://t.co/zzDhik3Jgq

The senator told the Washington Post, “There are 45, with about five to eight wanting to hear a little more. I still would like to dismiss it, but there aren’t the votes to do it just yet.”
Now, no matter what, it seems that President Trump won’t be removed from office in spite of what Democrats want. However, Sen. Paul still wants to garner more support before moving to outright dismiss the charges.
