The following article, Mitt Romney & Six Other Republicans Voted With Dems to Convict President Trump, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Remember when we were all hyped for Mitt Romney to take down Barack Obama in 2012? Do you still wonder what a Romney administration would’ve looked like?
Most likely, it would’ve been a team of very soft Republicans who had no intention of changing the status quo.
Doesn’t matter now, obviously. It’s a moot point.
But Mitt and six other Republicans in the Senate have proven that the left truly has the majority in the upper chamber.
From Fox News:
Those Republicans included Sens. Richard Burr of North Carolina, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.
The Republicans issued statements explaining their votes.
“Our Constitution and our country is more important than any one person. I voted to convict President Trump because he is guilty,” Cassidy said.
“After careful consideration of the respective counsels’ arguments, I have concluded that President Trump is guilty of the charge made by the House of Representatives,” said Romney, who also voted to convict Trump on a separate charge a year ago during the Ukraine impeachment.
