Sen. Mitt Romney “Likely” To Vote For Trial Witnesses

NBC News reports:

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, indicated Saturday that he is “likely” to vote to call witnesses in Trump’s impeachment trial, but would not commit to doing so just yet. “I think it’s very likely I’ll be in favor of witnesses but I haven’t made a decision finally yet and I won’t until” arguments on both sides are done, Romney told reporters after the first day of Trump’s defense.

Democrats need four Republicans to vote with them in order to try and call additional witnesses and admit documents House impeachment managers have said are necessary to reveal the full truth of Trump’s Ukraine dealings. Other Republican targets for Democrats hopeful of hearing additional testimony include Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, among others.
