After months of alluding to the possibility of supporting additional witnesses in the senate impeachment trial, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney let America know on Saturday that he’s probably going to go for it.
According to The Hill, Romney is in favor of extra witnesses, but won’t confirm that he will vote for them quite 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 the testimony is completed,” the Utah Republican said, according to the Washington Examiner.
When asked what he thought about the first day of the opening arguments from President Donald Trump’s defense team, he declined to go into further detail, saying, “I just don’t have any comments on the process or the evidence until the trial is over.”
This comment comes even after Romney was discovered to be falling drastically in the polls, ever since he first began floating the idea of breaking with the Republican party and voting for added testimonies.
The latest Morning Consult poll showed Romney had an eight point drop in approval ratings amongst Utah constituents between the third quarter and fourth quarter of last year.
Earlier this month, Romney told reporters that he “would like to be able to hear from John Bolton,” adding, “What the process is to make that happen, I don’t have an answer for you.”
The senate is expected to vote on witnesses in the next few days.
