Senator Mitt Romney is still upset he could never be President and furious Donald Trump won.
He made no secret of his contempt for the president and is working diligently to undermine the Trump presidency.
But when Mitt Romney tried to sell out Donald Trump Republican Senators took Mitt to the woodshed instead.
Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) has been a thorn in the side of actual conservatives for decades.
Mitt’s “RomneyCare” in Massachusetts was the precursor to Obamacare, and his brand of Big Government Republicanism led to massive spending, increased taxes, and out-of-control government that true conservatives have always fought against.
And its Romney and his moderates who have been all too willing to compromise on the Constitution and Bill of Rights – especially the Second Amendment.
So it really came as no surprise to us here at Renewed Right when we heard Romney was considering going against President Trump on impeachment.
Romney was talking about selling out the president behind closed doors as well as in front of his beloved TV cameras for days and was really starting to warmly embrace the media’s love affair with him as the leader of the Senate GOP resistance to Trump.
Because if there is one thing that has ever been consistent about Mitt Romney it is his love affair with, and need to be loved by, the liberal media.
So Romney decided to lead once again. This time to lead the opposition to the GOP party line against any new impeachment witnesses.
But what Romney didn’t expect was the backlash he faced among his Republican peers.
In fact, multiple Senators made it very brutally clear just how they felt about Romney’s treacherous nature.
It all started last Monday when, in a private lunch with his fellow Senate Republicans, Romnney made a strong pitch for calling additional witnesses for the Senate trial.
Not content to let it stay quietly behind closed doors, in addition to trying to convince Republicans to defect, Romney went public with his plea.
According to POLITICO, Romney said, “The article in The New York Times I think made it pretty clear that [Bolton] has some information that may be relevant and I’d like to hear relevant information before I made a final decision.”
Romney’s moderate posturing followed leaks from Bolton’s upcoming book that reportedly claims Trump told his national security advisor in August that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in assistance to the Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into the Bidens and other Democrats.
What the media did not report was that Romney has always supported calling more witnesses.
These conveniently timed leaks about Bolton’s book (who most believe were leaked by Bolton himself, or his agent to help boost sales) merely gave Romney some additional grounds for making the demands for more witnesses.
Interestingly enough, Romney supports the addition of anti-Trump witnesses but opposes calling witnesses like Hunter Biden, the original reason for the entire impeachment charade.
He also opposes calling disgraced former FBI Director James Comey and the FBI officials who lied to receive illegal wiretaps on the President and his 2016 campaign.
