Here's Romney's Dirty Little Note He Passed To GOP Ahead Of Impeachment Sham
Good old Mitt Romney has done it this time. He finally made history but at the expense of his reputation. Romney will forever be known as the only GOP member to vote to impeach a president from his own party.
The Rhino has major personal issues with the president. After all, Trump has called Romney out for being a weasel who used him to win an election. Romney's need to settle that score crossed into his professional duties ad a Senator the moment he voted to impeach the president without just cause.
One of his fellow Senators leaked a note Romney passed to them all. It was a clear plea to try to persuade them to vote in his favor and against the president. He wanted to get them to vote against the will of their own voters.
Not everyone agreed, it seems. Actually, no one agreed with Romney's far-left eccentric views about Trump. The move to impeach was baseless and Romney's colleges knew it. No one wants to go down in history for trying to stage a coup against a lawful president.
No one on in the Republican party- except Romney...
Here is what the letter obtained by Axios reads:
"As a Senator-juror, I swore an oath, before God, to exercise “impartial justice.” I am a profoundly religious person. I take an oath before God as enormously consequential. I knew from the outset that being tasked with judging the President, the leader of my own party, would be the most difficult decision I have ever faced. I was not wrong.
Corrupting an election to keep oneself in office is perhaps the most abusive and disruptive violation of one’s oath of office that I can imagine.
I am aware that there are people in my party and in my state who will strenuously disapprove of my decision, and in some quarters, I will be vehemently denounced. I am sure to hear abuse from the President and his supporters. Does anyone seriously believe I would consent to these consequences other than from an inescapable conviction that my oath before God demanded it of me?
As it is with each senator, my vote is an act of conviction. We have come to different conclusions, fellow senators, but I trust we have all followed the dictates of our conscience."
The President has repeatedly been cleared of the wrongdoing Democrats have imagined up. So why on earth would Romney seriously believe the other Senators would back him?
