Mitt Romney has always sought to undermine Donald Trump.
The Never-Trump RINO will wage his campaign of sabotage up until the bitter end.
And now Mitt Romney left Donald Trump’s blood boiling with this comment about voter fraud.
Romney told NBC’s Frank Thorpe that Trump supporters planning to protest the certification of the Electoral College in the Senate was an “act of madness.”
“This is madness. We have a process, recounts are appropriate, going to the court is appropriate & pursuing every legal avenue is appropriate. But trying to get electors not to do what the people voted to do is madness.”
Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks planned to try and contest the results when the Senate meets on January 6 to grant their approval of the election results.
Even though the Trump campaign presented mountains of evidence in the form of sworn affidavits of voter fraud in multiple states, Romney claimed objecting to the Electoral College count was going against the will of the people.
“It would be saying, ‘Look, let’s not follow the vote of the people, let’s instead do it what we want, that would not be the way a democratic republic ought to work,” Romney added.
Trump supporters would object and say the will of the people was subverted by fraudulent ballots and therefore Republicans had an obligation to object to the election results in order to maintain the sanctity of the vote.
But to actually contest the count, Brooks needs a Republican Senator to object.
Thorpe asked Romney about if these efforts would fail and Romney answered flat out “yes.”
Republican voters want to see their elected officials fight to the end because they believe the election was stolen.
Romney’s promise to surrender is only going to invite primary challenges and potentially divide the party ahead of the 2022 midterms.
