Mitt Romney just twisted the knife in President Trump’s back with this ultimate act of betrayal

Never-Trump Senator Mitt Romney is still bitter he never became President.

He’s never gotten over Donald Trump’s win in 2016.

But he just twisted the knife in President Trump’s back with this ultimate act of betrayal.

Mitt Romney announced on the Senate floor he would vote to convict President Donald Trump on the first article of impeachment on abuse of power.

His fellow Republicans didn’t respond well to the news.

Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY) tweeted that “Mitt Romney absolutely despites that Donald Trump was elected POTUS & he was not,” adding that it was “sore loser mentality” that launched the impeachment witch hunt and Schiff apparently “recruited himself a sore loser buddy” to “play along.”

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale called Romney “an irrelevant relic” who was “sour about Trump’s success.”

Conservative author and commentator Ann Coulter noted that Romney has stepped into McCain’s “Never-Trump” role in the Senate.

Dinesh D’Souza expressed regret for ever having supporter Romney in 2012.

Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist noted that Romney’s vote for more witnesses was completely disingenuous. “He clearly didn’t believe more evidence or testimony was necessary,” Davis said. “He just wanted a long, drawn-out process to damage his nemesis.”

The fallout of Romney’s vote to convict President Trump on even one of the House Democrats’ phony articles of impeachment is that it provided political cover for so-called “moderate” Democrats like Doug Collins (AL), Kyrsten Sinema (AZ), and Joe Manchin (WV) to vote for impeachment.

And, of course, the media gleefully noted Romney’s vote would be the first time in history a member of the President’s party voted for impeachment.

In the end, Romney’s vote to convict the President made no difference on the outcome of the Senate impeachment trial.

President Trump was acquitted and Democrats not only failed to remove him from office, polls show they failed in their ultimate goal – trying to damage Trump politically ahead of the November 2020 elections.
