Just moments ago, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) revealed how he will vote later today on the impeachment of Donald Trump.
On the charge of abuse of power, he will vote to impeach Trump.
Romney, like Democrats, believes Trump abused his power by asking a foreign government to investigate Joe Biden.
Also, like Dems, Romney believes Biden technically did nothing wrong.
To that, I would say we don’t technically know because Biden has never been honestly investigated.
Romney stated, “I swore an oath before God to exercise impartial justice.
“I am profoundly religious. My faith is at the heart of who I am.”
He then stated that he believed President Trump was “guilty of an appalling abuse of public trust.”
On the second charge, obstruction of justice, Romney will vote to acquit, but that is very much secondary to the fact he will give the Dems what they want on one charge.
Romney has probably ended his political career, a fact he is very much aware of.
He will also no doubt be accused of casting this vote simply to hurt Trump because of the feud that has been ongoing between these two ever since Romney’s failed presidential run.
Trump did what Romney could not, he won a presidential election, and many believe Romney will never let that go.
The blowback, in fact, has already started, with one of the first party members speaking out against Romney being his own niece…
This is not the first time I have disagreed with Mitt, and I imagine it will not be the last.
The bottom line is President Trump did nothing wrong, and the Republican Party is more united than ever behind him.
I, along with the @GOP, stand with President Trump.

This was not the only bad news for Trump today on impeachment.
Prior to Romney taking the floor, Senator Doug Jones (D-AL), a moderate Democrat expected to acquit, stated he will vote to convict on both charges.
Republicans are now left with two Democrat Senators who will possibly vote for acquittal.
Now, more than ever, it is imperative they get at least one of those Senators to vote to acquit to offset the vote by Romney.
Regardless, Democrats have nowhere near the support they need to get this impeachment to succeed.
Romney will now have the distinction of being the first party member in history to vote against the president in his party during an impeachment.
It will be a crushing blow to his career, but it will also give even more fuel to the fire the Democrats are trying extremely hard to keep burning.
