Once Again, Mitt Romney Betrays Trump, McConnell and the Rest of the GOP, This Time Over Bolton Testimony

January 29, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

Once again Mitt Romney betrays President Trump, Mitch McConnell and the rest of the GOP over witness testimony at the Senate impeachment trial, as Reuters reports:

“Republicans in the U.S. Senate came under fresh pressure on Monday to allow witnesses and new documents in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial after a news report that a former top aide has a written a book manuscript that undercuts Trump’s versions of events in the Ukraine affair.

Republican Senator Mitt Romney, a sometime critic of Trump, said there was a growing likelihood that at least four Republican senators would vote to call for former national security adviser John Bolton to testify, which would give Democrats the votes necessary to summon him.

The New York Times cited the manuscript of an unpublished book by Bolton as saying that the Republican president told him he wanted to freeze security aid to Ukraine until Kiev helped with investigations into Democrats, including former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

If confirmed, the report would add weight to Democrats’ accusations that Trump used the $391 million in aid – approved by the U.S. Congress to help Ukraine combat Russia-backed separatists – as leverage to get a foreign country to help him dig up dirt on a domestic political rival. Biden is a leading contender for the Democratic nomination to face Trump in the Nov. 3 presidential election.

Trump on Monday denied telling Bolton that he sought to use the aid to pressure Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelenskiy to investigate the Bidens on unsubstantiated corruption allegations. Hunter Biden worked for a Ukrainian energy firm while his father was U.S. vice president.

Bolton left his post in September. Trump said he fired him. Bolton said he quit.

“I think it’s increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton,” Romney told reporters.

“I think John Bolton’s relevance … is becoming increasingly clear,” Romney added.”

This is just a guess, but I’m betting that Romney will only support witnesses that could potentially hurt President Trump, but vote against calling Hunter or Joe Biden.

Mitt Romney is snake in the grass who hates President Trump and his successes and will do whatever he can to bring him down, or at least down a notch.

Anyone remember “Pierre Delecto?”

    when are the people who elect This man time after time going to wake up and fire him, and then elect a true conservative to replace him. He’s an embarrassment.

    Of course he wants to divert the attention of an investigation because he has a son working in the “GAS” business in Ukraine too!

    I can’t begin to tell you how damaging Nitt-Mitt-Shit is to our country. Another example of putting personal agenda ahead of the American People.

    We have to address term limits as these folks soon forget who they really work for.

    In closing—Nitt-Mitt-Shit, kiss my ass and have a great day!

    Mitt Romney (Sir Galahad) is a self-depicted turncoat, a thoroughbred consistent loser who ran against Obama back in the day and lost the chance of a lifetime to become President of the United States even with the backing and moral support of the Mormon Church and many many of their ardent (staunch) Church going GOD fearing members. He (Romney) knows what is at stake here! What is he trying to prove, does he want to be one up on Judas Iscariot? The shame, quilt and gall are on all of you sleazy self-righteous Republican hypocrites who are totally unworthy of their hire!

    all the commenters before me seem to have him down. I would add that a long term profile of this greedy, traitorous, destroyer of people, businesses, etc is consistent with his nasty, vengeance filled political life. Such a religious man, so full of demons.
