Utah Sen. Mitt Romney said he would like to see President Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser, John Bolton, testify at the upcoming impeachment trial.

Republican Romney told reporters, according to Politico:

“He has firsthand information and, assuming that articles of impeachment reach the Senate, I’d like to hear what he has to say."

Romney marks the first GOP senator calling for testimony from Bolton.

“I don’t know what the process will be like, but time will tell,” he added.

“What’s important is that we hear from him.”

The senator made these remarks after Bolton said he was “prepared to testify” if subpoenaed for the impeachment trial.

Democrats believe Bolton could provide testimony that could prove Trump withheld funding for Ukraine to pressure an investigation on Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

“Since my testimony is once again at issue, I have had to resolve the serious competing issues as best I could, based on careful consideration and study,” Bolton said in a statement.

“I have concluded that, if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony, I am prepared to testify.”

But for Democrats to subpoena Bolton to testify, they will also need support from four additional Republicans, according to The Hill.

In contrast, last month, Joe Biden declared he would not comply if a subpoena is issued by the Senate to testify in Trump's impeachment trial.

The former Vice President reiterated his intentions to the Des Moines Register’s editorial board on Friday after being questioned about a similar claim he made to NPR in earlier this month.

“Do you stand by your earlier statements that you wouldn’t comply if you were subpoenaed to testify in an impeachment trial before the Senate,” asked one board member.

“Correct, and the reason I wouldn’t is because it’s all designed to deal with Trump doing what he’s done his whole life, trying to take the focus off him,” Biden said.
