The whistleblower who sparked President Donald Trump's impeachment "should testify as a material witness" in the trial, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told "The Charlie Kirk Show" podcast this week.
Paul told Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, the whistleblower "should testify as a material witness," in Trump's Senate impeachment trial.
"He seems to have a big ax to grind with the president," Paul said. "He's holier than thou and saying we should impeach the president. Well, what did he think when he was working for [former Vice President] Joe Biden – when he was traveling back and forth to Ukraine?"
He added, "Because apparently, some of Biden's aides at the time mentioned that there's not something right about this, that it doesn't pass a smell test, that there's possibly corruption there, and so I think he should have to come in and testify."
Paul said Trump's legal team should "talk a lot about Hunter Biden and Joe Biden, whether they're [testifying] or not, because the thing is, he's accused of using his office to investigate something — well, I think he probably should be presenting the corruption that involves Hunter Biden, and Joe Biden."
House Speaker "Nancy Pelosi thought she had this great plan," Paul added later, referring to Trump's impeachment. "She was going to get all this leverage, and she was going to tell us how to run the trial by withholding something we didn't want."
