After Urging Bolton Testimony, Romney Refuses To Say If He Supports Calling Biden, Schiff, Whistleblower As Witnesses

After Republican Utah Sen. Mitt Romney reiterated his desire to hear testimony from former National Security Adviser John Bolton on Monday morning, his office would not say whether Romney also supports calls to bring in Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Adam Schiff, or the so-called whistleblower to testify before the Senate.

“Senator Romney has said all along that John Bolton may have relevant information and that he wants to hear from him. He will make a decision regarding witnesses after listening to the White House’s defense,” said Arielle Mueller, press secretary for Romney.

Democrats have advocated for Bolton and some other select witnesses who did not testify during the House impeachment inquiry to testify in the Senate impeachment hearings, but have not called to hear from witnesses involved in the alleged corruption between Hunter Biden and Ukrainian gas company Burisma during his father Joe Biden’s vice presidency, nor those involved in filing or coordinating the initial whistleblower complaint.

Democrats’ demands heightened Sunday after a New York Times report, based on a leaked manuscript of Bolton’s forthcoming tell-all book, made new allegations regarding Trump’s withholding of Ukrainian aid. Romney said, based “on the story that came out yesterday,” it is “very likely” other Republican senators would join him in seeking Bolton’s testimony during this week’s impeachment hearings.

Sen. Kelly Loeffler, the recently appointed Republican senator from Georgia, criticized Romney for caving to the Democrats’ demands to hear from anti-Trump witnesses.

Trump said Sunday night the claims in the Times story were false, and he insinuated the report was a leak perfectly timed to generate more publicity for Bolton’s book.

Bolton is a disgruntled employee after being fired by the Trump Administration. Romney has links to Hunter Biden which the Federalist identified in September 2019. https://thefederalist.com/2019/09/26/top-romney-adviser-worked-with-hunter-biden-on-board-of-ukrainian-energy-company/ Romney is a three time loser running for President. The American public is well aware of the bad blood between Romney and Trump. Romney is an opportunist wanting to position himself for another run at the White House in five years. America does not want Mitt Romney. He has had to move to several states to show residency to run for open offices. Romney is motivated only by money – not patriotism. So that… Read more »
