Never-Trumper Mitt Romney is plotting in secret against Donald Trump.
With Democrats launching an effort to impeach President Trump, Romney and other never-Trumpers sensed opportunity.
And Mitt Romney just revealed this plan to help Nancy Pelosi impeach Donald Trump.
Mitt Romney ran for the Senate to help give the Republican establishment in Washington, D.C. another voice to counteract President Trump.
Since entering Congress, Romney hardly passed on any opportunities to bash Donald Trump.
And as the Democrats barrel towards passing articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, Mitt Romney can go even further and try to push the President out of office.
In a recent profile by The Atlantic’s McKay Coppins, Romney refused to rule out voting to convict Donald Trump on any potential articles of impeachment.
Coppins wrote in The Atlantic:
He understands, of course, that many of his Republican colleagues live in fear of being subjected to a presidential Twitter tirade. In fact, some believe that Trump’s targeting of Romney is intended as a warning to other GOP lawmakers lest they step out of line. That fear is one of the reasons his caucus has attempted such elaborate rhetorical contortions to defend Trump as the House impeachment inquiry turns up damning evidence. “I think it’s very natural for people to look at circumstances and see them in the light that’s most amenable to their maintaining power,” he told me in an interview last month at The Atlantic Festival.
Romney told me that he does not have an abstract definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” and that when it comes to identifying impeachable acts, he follows Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart’s famous standard for defining hard-core porn: “I’ll know it when I see it.” Asked if he’s seen it yet, Romney told me that he’ll make up his mind once he hears all the evidence at the trial: “At this stage, I am strenuously avoiding trying to make any judgment.”
This is music to Nancy Pelosi’s ears.
Democrats are desperate for any hint that Republicans support impeachment, so the Fake News Media can claim the process is “bipartisan.”
And Mitt Romney just handed them that on a silver platter.
