GOP senator says Romney 'wants to appease the left by calling witnesses' in impeachment trial – CNN, CNN

Washington (CNN) Republican Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler targeted her colleague GOP Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah on Monday over the issue of witnesses at the Senate impeachment trial.

In a tweet, Loeffler leveled an accusation at Romney, saying, “After 2 weeks, it’s clear that Democrats have no case for impeachment. Sadly, my colleague @ SenatorRomney wants to appease the left by calling witnesses who will slander the @realDonaldTrump during their minutes of fame. The circus is over. It’s time to move on! ”

Loeffler, a political novice and businesswoman, was sworn in as Georgia’s newest senator earlier this month , taking over the seat previously held by then-Sen. Johnny Isakson, a Republican who retired at the end of last year over health concerns.

Her comments about Romney come as a debate over whether there should be witnesses called during the trial has intensified in the wake of a New York Times report that former national security adviser John Bolton’s draft manuscript says President Donald Trump told him US security assistance to Ukraine was conditioned on investigations into Democrats, including former Vice President Joe Biden.
