    The Utah Republican Party is reportedly considering multiple resolutions following Sen. Mitt Romney’s vote to convict President Donald Trump in the impeachment trial, including a resolution calling for his resignation. According to local Salt Lake City news outlet 2KUTV, “the Utah Republican Party has pending resolutions on Romney: one that expresses support for Trump’s acquittal, another that supports legislation to recall a U.S Senator and a third that calls for Romney to ‘immediately resign’ from office.” The Utah GOP will possibly vote on these resolutions on Saturday, February 29, the report also states. It is unclear what kind of support...

    VIDEO Right now in 2020, much of the media is showing incredible love for Mitt Romney. Why? Because he was the only Republican in the Senate to vote to convict President Trump during the impeachment trial. However, contrast this new found love for Romney to the disdain and hate they had for him in 2012 when he ran against their Obama Messiah. In this video we take a look at the laughably contradictory views taken by MSNBCers Chris Matthews, Lawrence O'Donnell, and Joe Scarborough towards Romney in the years 2020 versus 2012. It seems that if you oppose Trump,...

    SOUTH JORDAN, Utah — Republican Sen. Mitt Romney's vote to convict President Donald Trump on one count of abuse of power didn't bother Kelsey Malin. "I have kind of come to terms that even though he hasn't voted in a way that people say represents his party, the fact that he voted true to his conscience and over his party is a great thing," Malin, 28, said as she entertained her two children at a local library two days after the impeachment trial concluded last week. Malin was not alone. NBC News spoke with dozens of voters in Utah in...

    The Democrats’ impeachment push is dead. A lot of us knew this would be the outcome. Republicans control the Senate. There was no way 67 Senators were going to sign off on this hyper-partisan witch-hunt. This was dead from the start. Still, we all knew Democrats were fishing for reasons to impeach Trump. Russian collusion was the top idea for two years before Robert Mueller’s report killed that narrative. Then, came this Ukraine angle, which was an offshoot of the Trump-Kremlin collusion myth. You all know the story. Trump allegedly threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine unless they investigated Hunter...

    Author and columnist Mark Steyn told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Thursday that the ironic fact lost in the firestorm surrounding Sen. Mitt Romney's vote to convict President Trump of abuse of power this week is that Romney is the reason Trump is in the White House. Steyn told host Tucker Carlson that Romney never "punched back" when attacked by the media or Democrats during his failed 2012 bid for the presidency. When voters took note of that habit, they wanted a candidate who would do the exact opposite and not bow to the opposition when attacked. Those voters, Steyn said, gravitated...
  • Was Mitt Romney’s vote the fulfillment of a Mormon prophecy?

    LA Times ^ | 2/5/20
    SALT LAKE CITY —    Utahans reacted to Sen. Mitt Romney’s decision to break Republican ranks with a mixture of pride and dismay Wednesday, with some in this majority-Mormon state even suggesting that his vote to remove President Trump from office recalled a prophecy attributed to the church founder Joseph Smith. Although generally debunked as apocryphal by modern historians, the so-called White Horse Prophecy dates to 1844 when Smith himself was a candidate for president of the United States. The Mormons — members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — have long regarded the U.S. Constitution as a divinely inspired...

    In a shocking announcement prior to the Senate’s vote on impeachment Wednesday, Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, announced that he would vote to convict President Trump, earning him the praise of many left-leaning celebrities. Trump was ultimately acquitted on charges of obstruction of Congress and abuse of power. Romney broke from the rest of his Republican colleagues in the Senate with his vote on the abuse of power. Despite the ultimate outcome, Democratic celebrities were quick to praise the former presidential candidate for going with his conscience and casting a vote for conviction.

    American Thinker ^ | 02/06/2020 | Taylor Lewis
    Mitt Romney didn't just shoot inside the Grand Old Party's tent by voting for one article of impeachment against President Trump. The Utah senator became a heretic to the very people who once supported him, financially and electorally. The vote for conviction goes beyond mere policy disagreement, such as the proper tax rate for depreciation recapture. It goes beyond refusing to defend your party head. What Romney did was lob a M67 into the center of the Republican Party, intended for everyone from Ted Cruz to Susan Collins to lifelong GOP member Ethel Grannysmith in Boca Raton, before retreating to...

    MSNBC journalists on Wednesday responded with excitement to the news that Mitt Romney will vote to convict and remove Donald Trump from office. Brian Williams cheered that the move as “historic” and will “cement Romney’s legacy.” Reporter Garrett Haake touted it as “unlocking his super power.” Williams, who famously lost his job as anchor of the NBC Nightly News for telling lies, marveled at taking seriously one’s oath: “How about a guy willing to talk about the consequences of taking an oath before his God?”

    As Democrats and the media remain fanatically obsessed with assembling some form of a “quid pro quo” from the infamous Trump-Zelensky phone call, new details have emerged regarding Burisma, the company for which Hunter Biden worked and the company that Ukraine’s top prosecutor had been investigating before Vice President Joe Biden had the prosecutor fired via a months-long pressure campaign. According to web archives, top Mitt Romney adviser Joseph Cofer Black, who publicly goes by “Cofer Black,” joined Burisma’s board of directors while Hunter Biden was also serving on the board. According to The New Yorker, Hunter joined Burisma’s board...

    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told Fox News' Chris Wallace Wednesday in an exclusive interview that he "had to follow my conscience" in deciding to vote to convict President Trump on abuse of power, a decision that's likely to lead to serious blowback from Trump and others in the Republican Party. "I believe that the act he took, an effort to corrupt an election is as destructive an attack on the oath of office and our Constitution as I can imagine," Romney said. "It is a high crime and misdemeanor within the meaning of the Constitution, and that is not a...

    The chairman of CPAC announced that Utah Sen. Mitt Romney is "formally not invited" to the conservative group's annual conference this year. Matt Schlapp, the head of the American Conservative Union, said Romney is not allowed at the event after the Utah Republican voted in favor of summoning witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump. Romney was one of two Republicans who joined 47 Democrats in supporting the motion, which failed to pass on Friday. "BREAKING: The 'extreme conservative' and Junior Senator from the great state of Utah, @SenatorRomney is formally NOT invited to #CPAC2020," Schlapp wrote in...

    Trumpers are going to read that headline and respond, “YES, AND HE ALWAYS WAS,” but I don’t think that’s true. There’s too much for him to lose and too little to gain by casting a vote to remove that’s functionally meaningless to make this an easy call for him. He has almost five full years left in the Senate and may well spend all five having to deal with an embittered Trump administration that won’t do him a single favor if he votes the wrong way here. He’ll piss off thousands upon thousands of Republican constituents back home, some of...

    Mitt Romney is stoking suspicions that he is eyeing a third White House bid in 2024 after the Utah Republican broke with his party and insisted on witnesses at President Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate. A second Republican strategist neither affiliated with nor opposed to Trump agreed that Romney’s maneuvering during the four-month impeachment process was calculated. This veteran operative predicted the senator would be active after the November elections, trying to restore the internationalist, “Chamber of Commerce” Republicanism that dominated the GOP before the elevation of Trump, a populist and a nationalist. “He is cynically betting on an...

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney is not keen on President Trump’s attacks on impeachment witnesses, but conceded that the insults are working. “He has made a career of trashing people by tweet,” Romney, 72, told the New York Times. “It is part of his shtick and it’s working for him,” the Utah senator said of Trump’s attacks on his former national security adviser John Bolton. “I think it’s unfortunate.”
