Earlier today, Republicans Mitt Romney (R-UT), Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) all came out and showed support for having former White House National Security Advisor John Bolton testify against Presdient Trump in the Senate.
According to Breitbart News, “I think with the story that came out yesterday, it’s increasingly apparent it would be important to hear from John Bolton,” Romney said to reporters. “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 to provide to those of us who are sitting in impartial justice.”
Then according to ABC, Susan Collins said, “The reports about Bolton’s book strengthen the case for witnesses and have prompted a number of conversations among my colleagues.”
And now most recently, Sen. Lisa Murkowski has joined the two other republicans after reading the New York Times report of Bolton’s new book claiming that Trump wanted to withhold aid from Ukraine until they gave him intelligence on the Biden family.
“I stated before that I was curious as to what John Bolton might have to say. From the outset, I’ve worked to ensure this trial would be fair and that members would have the opportunity to weigh in after its initial phase to determine if we need more info,” Murkowski stated. “I’ve also said there is an appropriate time for us to evaluate whether we need additional information —that time is almost here. I look forward to the White House wrapping up presentation of its case.”
