Utah Senator Mitt Romney (R) has had a strained relationship with the President.
At first, many criticized him for cozying up with the President, possibly vying for the Secretary of State position. However, upon not joining President Trump’s cabinet, Senator Romney has been a critic of the President and his decisions made in office.
As the impeachment trial continues in the Senate, one name that has been thrown around that will possibly testify is former advisor John Bolton.
When asked to share his thoughts on whether or not Bolton would be testifying, Senator Romney commented to reporters on Capitol Hill that it’s “increasingly” important for the Senate to hear what the former national security advisor has to say, so he asserted that it’s “increasingly likely” that Bolton will be called to testify.
In speaking to reporters, Romney commented that “it’s… apparent that it would be important to hear from John Bolton.”
He added, “I, of course, will make a final decision on witnesses after we’ve heard from not only the prosecution but also the defense. But I think at this stage it’s pretty fair to say that John Bolton has a relevant testimony.”
As well, Romney signaled “that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton.”
With the impending release of a book by Bolton said to incriminate the President on accusations of quid pro quo, all eyes are on the trial which could determine the outcome of the upcoming 2020 election.
