GOP senator lashes out at Mitt Romney as possible new testimony fractures party unity

Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, following that report, appears open to the possibility of featuring witnesses at Trump’s impeachment trial — including Bolton — and Republican Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler, acting as a loyal Trumpista, is not happy about it.

Bolton, Romney asserted, “has relevant testimony,” adding that it is “increasingly apparent” that “it is important to hear” from Trump’s former national security adviser. And Loeffler, on Twitter, angrily responded that Romney is trying to “appease the left by calling witnesses who will slander” Trump "during their 15 minutes of fame."
The Georgia senator called for Trump’s impeachment trial to end, tweeting, “The circus is over. It’s time to move on!”
