Mitt Romney 'formally not invited' to CPAC after impeachment vote on witnesses
Washington Examiner ^ | January 31, 2020 08:11 PM | Anthony Leonardi

The chairman of CPAC announced that Utah Sen. Mitt Romney is "formally not invited" to the conservative group's annual conference this year.

Matt Schlapp, the head of the American Conservative Union, said Romney is not allowed at the event after the Utah Republican voted in favor of summoning witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump. Romney was one of two Republicans who joined 47 Democrats in supporting the motion, which failed to pass on Friday.

"BREAKING: The 'extreme conservative' and Junior Senator from the great state of Utah, @SenatorRomney is formally NOT invited to #CPAC2020," Schlapp wrote in a tweet, which featured a photo of a troubled-looking Romney.

— Matt Schlapp (@mschlapp) January 31, 2020 It is unclear whether Romney was expecting to attend this year's CPAC next month.

Romney recently slammed Trump's critical statements about former national security adviser John Bolton, whom Democratic House impeachment managers have fought to have as a witness. Bolton announced earlier this month he would testify if subpoenaed, and excerpts of his unpublished book have leaked to the press in recent days containing allegations of Trump pressuring Ukraine to help collect information on his political rivals.

“He has made a career of trashing people by tweet,” Romney told the New York Times. “It is part of his shtick, and it’s working for him."

This CPAC news comes after Utah state Republican Rep. Tim Quinn introduced a bill that would allow voters to recall a sitting U.S. senator. Quinn, 56, claimed the bill was unrelated to Romney but said it was a “good mechanism in place to make any senator, current or future, a little more accountable to those who elected him...

Romney couldn’t beat McCain in a primary. Bain Capital and Lincoln Savings and Loan . . . nice people . . .

“HONG KONG, July 25, 2019 – Bain Capital today announced the merger of ChinData, a leading Chinese operator of campus-style, hyperscale data centres, and Bridge Data Centres, a wholesale and custom build data centre company, to form one of the leading pan-Asian data centre platforms. The new parent Company, ChinData Group, will continue to operate under the ChinData and Bridge brands respectively. Bain Capital acquired ChinData in May 2019 from Wangsu Science & Technology Co. Ltd and has owned Bridge Data Centres since 2017.”

What is Matt Schlapp's reasoning for shunning Sarah Palin year after year?

Hell, he should be kicked out of the GOP. But not until we make sure we don’t need his vote in the next session of Congress.

I feel nauseous every time I remember having to vote for him in 2012! Same with McLame. YUCK!

I abstained in 2012 and in 2008, the first presidential election I ever got to vote in — my vote was for Sarah Palin.

“Romney” and “Conservative” don’t go together anyway.

Like “Schiff and “Intelligence” for his committee chair.

Fifty one Senators voted to uphold the impeachment authority given to that chamber by the constitution.

Forty nine voted to watch the Jerry Springer show!

History shows that Pence will almost certainly get the nomination in 2024, if he chooses to run.

I love Mike Pence, but if he could just put a little pizzazz in his delivery...he's better than a sleeping pill when he talks. I guess I'm spoiled by our dynamic President.

Without Twitter everything Trump says would be filtered and spun through the mouth of Chuck Todd.

The fact that Trump can bypass Chuck Todd’s spin machine through Twitter is what has them enraged.

It cannot be done. Its been tried in the SCOTUS before, and failed. Senators are there almost forever.

“Formally not invited...”

He was already inclined to be a pr*ck.

He’ll be MORE inclined to be even MORE of a pr*ck now.

Which is fine.

Enemy in the open. Better that way.

Utah voters must force Mitt Romney to resign today!!! They do not have recall legislation...but...they can harass Romney, every where he goes, a dozen different legal ways that makes life miserable for him until he resigns. Utah get rid of your deadbeat Traitor/Turncoat Romney today!!!! Like right now!!!

As for Susan Collins, kick her sad butt out the door immediately...end of story!!!
