Utah Senator Mitt Romney, explaining on Wednesday his vote to convict and remove President Trump from office for “abuse of power,” showed his willingness to swallow hook, line and sinker the House managers’ case. I’m referring to the case the managers absolutely did NOT prove (which is why Trump was acquitted on Wednesday).
In fact, Romney, acting on his "conscience" and his “oath to God,” sounded as if he could’ve BEEN one of those House managers. Who needs Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler to spout unfounded allegations when you have Mitt Romney to do it? And now Mitt will go down in history as the first senator ever to vote to convict and remove a President of his own party.
Democrats and all anti-Trumpers are turning him into a hero, thumbing their noses at those who took due process and the rules of evidence seriously and concluded the House didn’t prove its case. If you can stomach it, here’s Jennifer Rubin in THE WASHINGTON POST: “His vote and more importantly his speech matter greatly, if only as reminders that every American has the capacity for greatness, the ability to stand on principle and the spine to refuse the entreaties of the mob.”

As all thinking humans expected since the beginning of this unfunny farce, the Senate Wednesday voted to acquit President Trump on both Articles of “Impeachment” (and he’s “acquitted forever!”) The first (“abuse of power”) died 52-48 and the second (“contempt of Congress,” aka, the President daring to assert his due process rights) died 53-47. The votes were largely on party lines, except for Mitt Romney voting with the Democrats on the first one (more on that elsewhere.)
Considering that Senators have to take an oath of office to “support and defend the Constitution,” it should have been a unanimous 100-0 vote to acquit on both counts. The fact that it wasn’t shows we have far too many people in power in Washington who are either incapable of reading/comprehending the Constitution or who are willing to ignore the Constitution’s clear language, jettison their Constitutional responsibilities, and violate basic due process rights and established rules of law and evidence, as long as it harms someone they disagree with politically. I’m not sure which of those two alternatives is more disturbing. But whichever category their “yay” votes fell into, shame on them all.
I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:
With 97% of precincts finally reporting, it looks as if Pete Buttigieg edged out Bernie Sanders in the Iowa Democratic Caucuses, with Warren and Biden a distant third and fourth.
And since no Democrat ever lost a “fair” election, even when running against other Democrats, Bernie supporters are accusing Buttigieg of cheating and calling him “Mayor Cheat.” Which is plainly unfair: he’s not a mayor anymore
Of course, they’re aiming their ire at the wrong person. We all know who’s really to blame for the Democrats being unable to run a simple caucus vote in Iowa: Trump supporters, of course!
