Mitt Romney Pushes for Senate to Hear Testimony from White House Insiders

With a Senate trial coming any day now, Romney seems to be ramping up his rhetoric.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has finally chosen to move the impeachment process forward this week, with a vote set for Wednesday to send the articles of impeachment themselves over to the Senate.

The ball is now in Mitch McConnell’s hands, and he has intimated that a Senate trail could be underway as early as Tuesday of next week.  For all intents and purposes, it is understood that this will be a swift trial that President Trump is likely to walk away from unscathed.  In fact, McConnell himself has stated that his preference would be to proceed without so much as a single witness during the proceedings.

That isn’t sitting well with Utah Senator Mitt Romney.

Bolton, the former national security advisor, announced last week that if he were to be subpoenaed, he would testify in the Senate Impeachment Trial. Bolton has not stated what his testimony would concern, but he was witness to several of the president’s matters with Ukraine during his stint as advisor. Trump has already stated that he will use his “executive privilege” to block Bolton’s testimony in an attempt to “protect presidential privilege,” showcasing his fundamental misunderstanding of executive privilege. Former federal prosecutor Cynthia Alksne cleared it up on MSNBC, stating, “You can’t use executive privilege to cover up a crime, and what we have here is extortion, and so executive privilege does not apply to the questions about the Ukraine extortion.”

Bolton’s name was on the tip of many a tongue during the House’s impeachment inquiry, with several witnesses stating that the former national security adviser would be able to lend significant information to the investigation.
