    Exclamation Rand Paul to force votes on blocking Trump's Bahrain, Qatar arms sales


    The Senate will vote next week on efforts by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to block arms sales to Bahrain and Qatar.

    The two votes are expected to take place Thursday, though the exact timing hasn't yet been locked in by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). They have to take place by Friday as part of an agreement outlined by McConnell.

    The Senate will vote on whether or not to discharge Paul's resolutions of disapproval, one on the sale to Bahrain and a separate on the Qatar arms sales, out of the Foreign Relations Committee. If he's successful it would kick the issue to the full Senate, and allow him to fast-track the two resolutions on the Senate floor.

    The administration notified Congress last month that it would sell missile systems and related equipment to Bahrain for approximately $2.47 billion. It also noticed a separate sale of missiles and other equipment tied to an aircraft fleet that would total $750 million. Paul's resolution appears to only block the second arms sale.

    The all or nothing libertarians bashing Rand since Trump got elected, will avoid this thread.


    They will say Rand knows it won't pass, so he's forcing the vote = shill

    At the same time they also say, Rand supporting Trump, when he should be taking a stand = shill


    Rand of course, is not being just like Amash, who is now at risk to lose re-election.

    There is far greater chance of wipe out of MAGA movement now that risk of MAGA 2020 getting defunded has increased sharply after recent UK blunder. GOP may need to prepare alternative leadership to avoid Biden/Beto Dems win in 2020.
