Romney Breaks Ranks With GOP, Will Vote To Convict President Trump

13

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) became the first Republican to break ranks and announce he would vote to convict President Trump on a charge of abuse of power.

Speaking from the mostly empty Senate floor on Wednesday, Romney called Trump’s attempt to freeze military assistance to Ukraine for political motives as “appalling” and “flagrant.”

“The grave question the Constitution tasks senators to answer is whether the president committed an act so extreme and egregious that it rises to the level of a high crime and misdemeanor. Yes, he did,” Romney said shortly after 2 p.m.

“I swore an oath before God to exercise impartial justice. I am profoundly religious. My faith is at the heart of who I am. I take an oath before God as enormously consequential,” he said.

  1. he seems like a throwback to the old days when Republican party seem to stand this way
    second of all
    I suspect He even clear this with the White House
    this way he’s giving allowance for never trumpers to remain within the GOP tent under the GOP l

  2. nice to do the wrong thing and hide behind god.did he hear testimony from relible witnesses ???wondering what god says about that .

  3. It only makes sense that RINO Mitt Romney, friend of Obama, Hillary and Schiff, will convict Trump. He’s a republican??? LOL! If he’s a Republican, so are his friends. I have no doubt he’s one of the big criminals in the Swamp that President Trump will drain – which is why he hates Trump – and already is on that huge Arrest List.

  4. Romney is a little Rino coward who is as bitter as Hillary is. Mittens LOST twice as well! He LOST to McCain in 2008 and LOST to Obama in 2012. This duffus has just ended any connection to the Republican Party.

  5. anyone here really think trump didnt pressure zelensky to investigate biden? just curious.
    Not that i think he should be impeached if he did. But That is debatable. So why all the anger at romney? i gotta say it pissed me off too. But is his opinion not valid?

  6. Romney showing his true colors. He accused Trump in 2016 of being phoney and fraud. Now we know the true phoney and fraud. SO GLAD THIS GUY DID NOT WIN PRESIDENCY BEFORE. IT WOULD BLOCK THE way for trump.
