Romney Just Blasted Trump For Attacking Key Witness In Impeachment Inquiry: ‘Absurd And Disgusting’
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who has been highly critical of Donald Trump, fired back on Tuesday against attacks on an Army officer and key White House official testifying as part of the House impeachment inquiry.
“It’s absurd, disgusting, and way off the mark. This is a decorated American soldier and he should be given the respect that his service to our country demands,” Romney told reporters when asked about criticism of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a National Security Council official.
Even Trump himself railed against Vindman and questioned his credibility, including calling him a “Never Trumper witness.”
“Supposedly, according to the Corrupt Media, the Ukraine call ‘concerned’ today’s Never Trumper witness,” Trump tweeted. “Was he on the same call that I was? Can’t be possible! Please ask him to read the Transcript of the call. Witch Hunt!”

Romney isn’t the only Republican who spoke out against the attacks on Vindman.
“Questioning the dedication to country of people like Mr. Vindman, Lt. Col. Vindman who will be coming today, and others who have testified. I think that we need to show that we are better than that as a nation,” Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) told reporters without specifying whom she was responding to.
Biden called Trump’s remarks ‘despicable,” while Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said he was a “disgrace.”
