Senator Kelly Loeffler, a new GOP Senator who was appointed the seat of Johnny Isakson by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, is hitting Mitt Romney today for ‘appeasing the left’ with the entire Bolton saga:
After 2 weeks, it’s clear that Democrats have no case for impeachment. Sadly, my colleague @SenatorRomney wants to appease the left by calling witnesses who will slander the @realDonaldTrump during their 15 minutes of fame. The circus is over. It’s time to move on! #gapol

Bret Baier on Twitter called this a “Bold tweet by the newest US GOP Senator.” I’d agree and I’m sure many will love her tweet.
But not everybody. Here’s a few responses…
Kelly, I had my doubts, but you are woke. https://t.co/rEv7aDxe1o

President Trump is a known liar.
John Bolton is a known truth-teller.
But the Republican imperative is to defend Trump, according to Trump's tactics, regardless of who gets smeared in the process. This is pitiful. https://t.co/iCjZ9PzJcs

Keep in mind that she’s running in 2020 to keep her seat and plans to spend big bucks to do so. Some are interpreting this tweet as her way of trying to appeal to the pro-Trump base. I’d say mission accomplished.
