Oh man, I would HATE to be this guy right now.
Honestly, I am puzzled over his actions. I understand that Mitt is a RINO, and an establishment politician who wants to protect his power, but come on! This is NOT how it is done!
We have all seen the reports that Romney was one of the RINO’s who voted to impeach The 45th President of The United States.
A President who was either the most popular, or among the most popular Presidential candidates in American history…….
According to reports there is now a petition seeking to censure Romney for his actions.
This petition is the cherry on the backlash cake he is receiving on social media, and throughout the country from serious conservatives.
Romney never saw the writing on the wall? There was MASSIVE support behind President Trump, and even the vast majority of the GOP came to his aid, so what did he think was going to happen?
Mitt has GOT to do a better job at reading the room!
Take a look:
The Salt Lake Tribune reported:
Some Utah Republicans are hoping to censure Sen. Mitt Romney for voting to convict former President Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial.
The motion, being circulated on social media, says Romney failed to “represent the average conservative Utah Republican voter” and “misrepresented himself as a Republican,” when he ran for office.
The Utah Republican Party’s top leaders are not behind this effort. Instead, the party issued a statement Monday noting that both Romney and Sen. Mike Lee, who voted to acquit Trump, have faced criticism for their impeachment votes. “The differences between our own Utah Republicans showcase a diversity of thought, in contrast to the danger of a party fixated on ‘unanimity of thought.’ There is power in our differences as a political party, and we look forward to each senator explaining their votes to the people of Utah.”
The Hill had more on the petition:
Signatories of the document accuse Romney of having “embarrassed the State of Utah” with his vote to convict Trump on one article of impeachment during his first Senate trial last year.
They argue that Romney’s willingness to move forward with this year’s trial and his subsequent conviction vote “intentionally violate the 1st, 4th, 5th and 14th Amendment Rights” of Trump, noting the senator “appears to be an agent for the Establishment Deep State.”
“Whereas; Senator Willard Mitt Romney has condoned false and misleading statements that have led the 117th Congress of the United States to further conduct an illegal and unconstitutional 2nd Impeachment proceeding against President Donald J.Trump,” it continued.
The document also notes that the Utah Republican Party “leadership has failed to issue a censure” against Romney. It is not clear whether the party will consider censuring the Utah senator.
