Skip to comments.New GOP Senator: Romney is trying to 'appease the left' with impeachment witnesses
Posted on 01/27/2020 2:15:44 PM PST by SeekAndFind
Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) on Monday lashed out at fellow GOP Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah) over his apparent openness to call witnesses as part of President Trump's impeachment trial.
Loeffler who was just sworn into the Senate earlier this month after being appointed to succeed Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), who was popular among members on both sides of the aisle tweeted that it was "time to move on" from the impeachment effort.
"Sadly, my colleague [Romney] wants to appease the left by calling witnesses who will slander the @realDonaldTrump during their 15 minutes of fame. The circus is over," Loeffler tweeted.
Officials for Romney didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
Loeffler, in her tweet, didn't specify what comment from Romney had sparked the public call out of her colleague, but it comes after Romney reiterated his interest in hearing from former national security adviser John Bolton on Monday, though he specified that he would make a final decision after opening arguments and questions from senators.
Its pretty fair to say John Bolton has relevant testimony, Romney said. "I think it's increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton."
Romney later clarified that his prediction was not based on conversations with senators.
Romney isn't the only GOP senator who has indicated that he would be open to hearing from witnesses.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said on Monday that she is "curious" what Bolton might say, but is waiting until after the initial phase of the trial to make a decision on witnesses.
Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) also said Bolton's allegations "strengthen the case" for witnesses, but she similarly will wait before she makes a decision.

Almost as much of a shameful embarassment as McCain on the GOPussy ticket against that halfbreed traitor Ø Hussein.
Someone needs to tell Romney you don’t get to Kolrab by being an asshole.

Unknown to most of us, she was appointed out of the blue by GA Gov. Kemp.

The Backstabbing Bishop Romney.

McCain and Romney were both willing Designated Losers.
They were each specifically chosen for their particular dive, McCain because of his eligibility issues for 2008 and Romney for 2012 because he invented Obamacare.
Then buy the book. It comes out in March.
Mittens should “appease the right” for the first time in his life and go back to Utah, or Massachusetts, or Kolob, or wherever he is from.
Dig deeper. Romneys son is knee deep in corruption in Ukraine.
The New & Improved Ann Coulter
Bishop Pierre Delecto punches the bishop over the prospect of surrender-monkeying to his Democrat pals...
Our new senator seems to be doing a good job so far.
Or Sen. Collins can pick up the phone and have a conversation with Bolton. Since the Democrats have constructed a case out of hearsay evidence, she can then plant her ass in front of her fellow senators and testify herself.
“...Romney is a gutless whore...”
Romney is an ESTABLISHED LOSER. He can only win at anything by stabbing people in the back. No surprise.
