On Saturday, shortly after the bipartisan Senate vote to authorize witnesses in the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, 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."
The altercation was confirmed by Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-AK), whose desk is located between Romney and Johnson on the Senate floor.
Romney was one of five Republican senators who voted with Democrats to authorize witnesses 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 facing one article of impeachment for incitement of insurrection. House managers spent the last few days laying out a case that his repeated conspiracy theories of election fraud motivated the riot, and that he was aware of the danger it posed and that he could call off the rioters or send in the National Guard, but did not do so until people had died.
