‘Blame you’: Johnson and Romney get heated after vote for impeachment witnesses

Must read

Asked about the confrontation by reporters, Johnson declined to get into it, saying “those are private conversations.” A reporter then noted that reporters heard it.

“That’s grotesque you guys are recording,” Johnson said, to which a reporter noted they were allowed to witness the proceedings.

Johnson, a Trump ally, told reporters that the vote will merely “inflame the situation.”

“We never should have this impeachment trial. It’s not healing, it’s not unifying, it’s like opening up a wound and just rubbing salt in it,” Johnson said. “I thought we were going come to a conclusion here today and [then] let’s rip the wound back open, let’s rub more salt in it.”

Spokespeople for Romney did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Romney was the only Republican to vote to convict former Trump in his first impeachment trial, and has voted that Trump’s second Senate trial is constitutional.
