Sen. Mitt Romney said Monday it's "increasingly likely" there will be enough Republican senators to vote in favor of calling witnesses in President Donald Trump's Senate trial to compel their testimony after major revelations from a soon-to-be released book from former national security adviser John Bolton.
"I think, with the story that came out yesterday, it's increasingly apparent that it would be important to hear from John Bolton," the Republican senator from Utah told reporters in brief comments. He said he hasn't fully made up his mind on calling witnesses, but what Bolton has to say is "relevant" and "therefore I'd like to hear it."
"I think it's increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton," Romney said. "I've spoken with others who've opined upon this as well."
At least four Republicans would need to vote alongside all Democratic senators in order to secure new testimony, which could lengthen the trial.

Almost like it was planned........
Shame on you.
Just keeping his face in the news. He’s truly vain.
It’s equally likely that Mitt will run away to join the circus as a sword swallower.
I just heard that the GOP is holding a news conference soon. Could this be what it is about?
“It appears increasingly likely” that Mutt Romney is part of the set-up.
Mittens say what? Uh, hey mittens. The house had the opportunity to have a vote and issue actual subpoenas and failed to do their doodee. Dumbassery continues.
I often wonder how Romney gets up and looks at himself in the morning.
Does he know he is a pathetic sell out?
Or has he justified his actions like how thieves justify stealing as an act of social justice/revenge?
From his sick faux pious demeanor, I really think he’s successfully deluded himself.
Fox said this a.m. that four Rep votes for witnesses is unlikely.
Would be neat for Mittens to be shown as a lone traitor.
Thanks for the information.
Let’s wait to see how Trump’s team does today. If Bolton is called, it’s just going to be a Bolton said, Trump said. Go ahead Mitt, call Bolton and Slow Joe will be called.
When romney read the article, I guess he missed the part that there was no proof bolton said it nor, as NBC said. Can’t confirm it. Romney a pos.
Shameful. Cant mr Romney just follow the constitutional process ? Juries dont make the plaintiffs
cases. ( After he threw his election, hes behaved like a complete donkey and hes so obviously super- jealous of pdjt its embarrassing. Utah has a rogue like mcshame or flake. Just awful.
Almost like it was planned....
Yeah. Any sudden gossipy news story makes him react like a fool.
What if Washington vacillated and never crossed the Delaware? Or Eisenhower couldn’t find the right news stories to support braving the weather to land at Normandy so gave up?
Unlike Romney other people are leaders, not weathervanes.
Nothing else about “impeachment” seems to be happening today.
Mittens right on cue, must have been sharpening up his back stabbing knives
Mitt Romney is now in the same league as John McCain, A scum & vermin, traitor, turncoat,..was and is still is, even though McCain has passed on to hang forever with SATAn himself!!!
Voters in UTAH......Hang your heads in shame or, better yet, get rid of Mitt Romney!!!
I sure hope hes wrong its going to get FUBAR if the rats get their witnesses.
