Never Trump RINO Mitt Romney finally went there.
Romney spent months telegraphing his intentions to betray Donald Trump.
And Mitt Romney just announced he is effectively a Democrat with this impeachment vote.
Mitt Romney spent the entire impeachment witch hunt playing coy about how he intended to vote on the Democrats’ articles of impeachment.
On the day of the acquittal vote, the reasons behind Romney’s reluctance to reveal his intentions became painfully obvious.
And that was because Mitt Romney was going to stand out as the first Republican to join with the Democrats in voting to remove Donald Trump from office.
Romney explained to the fake news Washington Post that he fell for Adam Schiff’s stories about President Trump being supposedly “guilty: hook, line and sinker.”
“There’s no question that the president asked a foreign power to investigate his political foe,” Romney relayed to Dan Balz of the Washington Post. “That he did so for a political purpose, and that he pressured Ukraine to get them to help or to lead in this effort. My own view is that there’s not much I can think of that would be a more egregious assault on our Constitution than trying to corrupt an election to maintain power. And that’s what the president did.”
The bitter and jealous Mitt Romney – who twice failed in his Presidential bids – also rejected the idea that the American people should get to pick their President.
Romney told Balz that Congress should overturn an election on the whims of petty partisan passions and exercise a heckler’s veto over the people’s choice.
“The Constitution doesn’t say that if the president did something terribly wrong, let the people decide in the next election what should happen,” Romney added. “It says if the president does something terribly wrong, the Senate shall try him. And so the Constitution is plain.”
Romney tried to justify his vote by falsely claiming he was a loyal Republican.
“He’s the leader of my party,” Romney continued. “He’s the president of the United States. I voted with him 80 percent of the time. I agree with his economic policies and a lot of other policies. And yet he did something which was grievously wrong. And to say, well, you know, because I’m on his team and I agree with him most of the time, that I should then assent to a political motive, would be a real stain on our constitutional democracy.”
In fact Mitt Romney is not a dependable vote for the President’s agenda.
On the major issues, Romney votes like a Democrat.
When the President declared a national emergency at the Southern border in order to unlock military construction funds to build a border wall, Romney joined the Democrats in voting for a resolution of disapproval to try and stop the wall from being built.
Romney also bought into the fake news media lie that Donald Trump did not condemn white supremacists after the tragedy in Charlottesville back in 2017.
Not only did Mitt Romney smear the President as a racist, Romney also praised the left-wing terrorist group Antifa.
Romney’s personal hatred for the President warped his brain.
Instead of evaluating the facts and realizing Adam Schiff and the Democrats were trying to pull a fast one on the American people, Romney allowed his Trump Derangement Syndrome to override all reason and join the Democrats on the vote to convict the President.
