Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) reportedly got into a fight with Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), with the two senators going after each other with raised voices and Johnson “visibly upset” after the bipartisan Senate vote to authorize witnesses in the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.
Johnson lashed out at Romney after the Utah Senator, along with other four Republicans, sided with Democrats to hear witnesses in the trial.
The vote to allow witnesses came after House impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) called for a subpoena of Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA), following reports that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) confided in her that Trump supported the violent mob that attacked the U.S. Capitol in January.
Trump is accused of inciting the deadly insurrection on the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.
“… They were going back and forth with Sullivan in the middle of them. I heard Johnson tell Romney ‘Blame you.’ Voices were definitely raised.”
