A senior Republican Senate source has claimed that Mitt Romney is blocking the subpoenas of James Comey and John Brennan.

During a radio interview on Wednesday evening, Senator Ron Johnson, the chair of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said that fellow committee members were blocking him from sending subpoenas to James Comey, the former FBI director, and John Brennan, the former CIA director, as well as others involved in the investigation of President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“We had a number of my committee members that were highly concerned about how this looks politically,” Johnson told Hugh Hewitt on his show. If one of the eight Republicans were to defect on the committee of fourteen, the decision could very easily end in a deadlock.

Johnson, however, refused to name any names on the show, despite Hewitt repeatedly asking him.

“If there’s a senator who is blocking a subpoena, we need to know who that is so we throw them out,” Hewitt said.

Following the interview, one name did in fact come out. Speaking to The Gateway Pundit, a senior Republican Senate source confirmed that it was Senator Mitt Romney who was leading the charge against the subpoenas.

“Romney was for impeachment. He has been against Trump every step of the way. Now he is obstructing going after the leakers and liars who went after Trump,” the source said, confirming this has been yet another move by Romney against the president and his supporters.

This really should come as no surprise to anyone who backs the president. Romney was the only Republican who voted to impeach President Trump earlier this year, and since that’s failed, he’s doing his utmost to stop justice being done to those members of the Deep State who tried their best to stop the president from winning in 2016.
