Heading into the Senate impeachment trial, a range of emotions have been shared on both sides of the aisle.

Republicans have criticized Democrats for taking on a partisan standpoint regarding the allegations aimed against President Trump. In turn, Democrats have directed criticism at Republicans for attempting to disrupt the impeachment of a President they feel has committed acts of crime against the American people.

In an interview with Fox News, Texas Senator John Cornyn (R) commented on the ensuing trial, arguing that if witnesses are added it will only ensure that the Senate impeachment will go on “forever and ever and ever.”

The comments come at a time when Republicans like Utah Senator Mitt Romney (R) have called for national security advisor John Bolton to testify after it was announced that he would be incriminating President Trump in a book soon to be released.

When asked if he would expect Bolton to be called as a witness and to testify in front of the Senate, the Texas Senator commented, “I would say the problem the impeachment managers have is that they put the cart ahead of the horse.” He explained what this means, noting that “they put impeachment before producing the evidence.”
