As House Managers make their opening arguments on day two of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, Sen. Rand Paul had an offer for the president after earlier in the day when he was leaving Switzerland he told reporters he’d love to sit front row at his own impeachment trial and stare at “corrupt” Democrats.
According to Daily Caller, Paul tweeted an image of a guest pass to the impeachment trial that he was given because he’s a senator and said that he would love to have the president attend the trial as his guest.
“I heard @realDonaldTrump would like to attend the impeachment trial. Mr. President, would love to have you as my guest during this partisan charade,” Paul tweeted on Wednesday afternoon.

Paul’s open invite to the president came on the heels of heavy criticism he hurled at Democrats earlier in the day, claiming that the longer House Manager Adam Schiff speaks, the more unified Republicans are against the entire Democrat-led impeachment process.
“The more we hear from Adam Schiff, the more the GOP is getting unified against this partisan charade!” Paul tweeted.
Democrats spent most of day one of the Senate impeachment trial attempting to have roughly a dozen amendments to the rules passed, though they were quickly shot down by the Republican-controlled upper chamber. In some of the amendments, Democrats attempted to have Ukraine-related documents subpoenaed to aide their case against the president.
Democrats have also argued the merits of having the ability to call witnesses, such as former national security adviser John Bolton, who they claim could be the missing puzzle piece to secure a potential conviction for the president.
As previously reported by Daily Sounder, on Tuesday night reports emerged of a potential “witness swap” being considered by a small number of Democrats. The exchange would involve giving Republicans the opportunity to have Hunter Biden testify if Democrats were able to secure Bolton. No further updates on the matter, other then some senators denying it was a possibility, have emerged since then.
