It’s official, Mitt Romney will stab Trump in the back as we hurtle towards Trump’s impeachment trial.
The issue is not whether Trump will be found not guilty – he will. And by a large margin.
The issue is the process and how long the charade must go on until Trump is acquitted. Trump has at times wanted a big trial so he could get a public exoneration and drag Hunter and Joe Biden through some tough questions.
At other times, Trump has said let’s just dismiss the charges and get back to work – the Senate can do nothing else during an impeachment trial and they must work 6 days a week until it is done and we have major issues that need the Congress’ attention.
America has more pressing issues than a show trial which is why it is so disappointing when Romney pulls this stuff.
Believe me, Bolton or any Trump witness won’t change a thing nor will calling Hunter Biden (although depending on his performance he may hurt Joe’s campaign). Everyone has decided so let’s just fast forward to the not guilty and get on with the business of America and leave the final say to the American voter in 2020.
Journalist Paul McLeod reported:
Mitt Romney says he wants to hear from John Bolton and others but wants to follow the Clinton impeachment process – meaning both sides present their case, then the Senate votes on calling witnesses. “Barring some sort of surprise I’ll vote in favor of hearing witnesses.”
Journalist Alex Bolton added:
“Mitt Romney says he’ll vote to hear from at least one impeachment witness: “I presume I’ll be voting in favor of hearing from John Bolton.”
“I support the Clinton impeachment model, which is a vote on witnesses later. 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.”
He added that Bolton is “someone who I would like to hear from, and presumably, I’d get the chance to vote for that.”

Here’s Sen. Romney a moment ago on what impeachment trial setup he plans to support: basically, he knows he wants to hear from Bolton but is fine with kicking that vote to later pic.twitter.com/8ceRqHS2jG
