    Sen. Rand Paul speaks up on impeachment process

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who spoke at Wednesday’s meeting, said he will offer a motion to dismiss the impeachment articles after the House prosecutors and the president’s defense team have a chance to present their arguments.

    “Under the Clinton impeachment rules, a motion to dismiss was allowed after opening arguments. So I would think at the very least we should have that. If there’s going to be opening arguments, we should do like we did in the Clinton trial and at least have a motion to dismiss at that point,” he said.

    Paul also said he would push hard to allow the president’s defense team broad authority to choose their witnesses.

    “The other thing that I think needs to be very clear is that the president gets to call any witness he so desires for his defense,” he said.

    Except as to the rule of appointment, the United States have an indefinite discretion to make requisitions for men and money; but they have no authority to raise either by regulations extending to the individual citizens of America.
