As Republicans Face Impeachment Dilemma, Romney is a Lonely Voice of Concern

As House Democrats push forward with an impeachment inquiry into President Trump, Republicans have largely rushed to Mr. Trump’s defense, or at least tempered their criticism to avoid his furious reprisals.

Among the handful of exceptions, though, there has been none louder or more prominent than Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, a figure who once embodied the essence of the Republican Party before Mr. Trump commandeered it, and is now in a lonely category of his own.

Since the first reports a week ago that Mr. Trump urged President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. set off a still-unfolding furor in the capital, Mr. Romney has repeatedly been the first Republican lawmaker to raise concerns about the president’s conduct.

He has pronounced himself “deeply troubled” by Mr. Trump’s effort to enlist a foreign leader for political assistance, and has refused to rule out impeaching the president.

I will vote for a Democrat over Romney. I will never regret abstaining from 2012 election.

Romney is the ultimate example of PATHETIC. He’s a small, small, petty and jealous man.

Not “deeply concerned” about Biden millions from Ukraine, however. What a fraud Mitt is.

PROUDLY I didn’t vote for him in 2012, and I CHEERED when Obama beat him. I was SOOOO right.

Romney is the quintessential Bush League Republican, a Democrat in an R jersey.

You might consider calling the church headquarters in Salt Lake City and tell them that this ASS is ruining their reputation.

I thought he was just being an anti-Trump idiot.

He’s that, for sure.

But it turns out he has connections to the Ukraine company in question.

So it’s corruption, too.

Nonsense. Romney was always viewed with mistrust by the base. That’s why he picked fake conservative Ryan as his VP nom.

Bishop Romney and Soros are tied to the
very company Burisma that profited after giving
Hunter Biden money to stop an investigation.

How is that NOT Treason laced with obstruction of justice.

Shame on Utah. Shame. Shame. Shame.

Mittens is part of the DS/Odongo shadow govt.
He takes his orders from fellow Mormon: Dingy, dirty Hairy Reid.
The whole shadow govt and all their traitorous ilk should be doing time at GITMO as enemy combatants.
