On Monday, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) signaled that he would “presumably” vote to hear from former National Security Advisor John Bolton in the pending Senate impeachment trial.
Romney made the statement while speaking with reporters in regards to his stance on whether or not witnesses should appear during the trial.
“I support the Clinton impeachment model, which is vote on witnesses later,” Romney said in a video that aired on MSNBC’s Hardball With Chris Matthews.
He continued, “But as to which witnesses I’d want to hear from and so forth, that’s something which I’m open to until after the opening arguments.”
Asked if John Bolton is included among the witnesses he’d like to hear from, Romney replied, “Including John Bolton, yes.”
“I mean, he’s someone I would like to hear from,” Romney said. “Presumably, I’ll get a chance to vote for that.” See Below
