Social media users pushed the famously indecisive Sen. Mitt Romney to #MittOrGetOffThePot as he decides whether to vote for additional testimony in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial.
The Senate trial is moving Wednesday to 16 hours of questions and answers from senators, House impeachment managers and Trump's defense team, but some Republicans have signaled they may join Democrats in voting to hear from new witnesses such as John Bolton, the ousted national security adviser.
Romney “made a strong pitch” for witnesses during a closed-door lunch Monday with other GOP senators, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tries to keep his caucus in line and bring the trial to a swift conclusion.
Twitter users begged Romney to "do the right thing" and call for Bolton and possibly other witnesses to provide details about Trump's pressure scheme against Ukraine.
