Rand Approves of Trump’s Negotiations With Ukraine
Article from The Hill by Tal Axelrod.

Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said on Thursday morning that U.S. aid to other countries should be “contingent upon behavior” as questions over whether President Trump leveraged assistance to Ukraine to pressure Kiev to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son drives an impeachment investigation in the House.
“I think it’s not incorrect or wrong,” Paul said on “CBS This Morning,” referring to Trump’s request. “What I would say that aid that we give to other countries should be contingent upon behavior and whether or not we should have Ukraine trying to eradicate corruption, yes.”
“I think everybody has different ways that they would approach things,” he added when asked if he would have made the same request of Kiev if he were president.
