While speaking to reporters, Senator Mitt Romney said that ” it’s increasingly likely” that some Republicans will vote to hear testimony from former national security adviser John Bolton in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.
In addition, Romney signaled that Bolton’s testimony would factor into whether he votes to convict President Trump of abuse of power.
I said for some time that I hope to be able to hear from John Bolton. I think with the story that came out yesterday, it’s increasingly apparent that it would be important to hear from John Bolton.
I of course will make a final decision on witnesses after we’ve not only heard from the prosecution but also the defense, but I think at this stage it’s pretty fair to say John Bolton has a relevant testimony to provide to those of us who are sitting in impartial justice.
