    Veterans of Mitt Romneyís 2012 presidential campaign are eyeing an alliance with Joseph R. Biden, looking to make a splash in announcing they have turned their backs on the GOP this year and will support the presumptive Democratic nominee instead. Micah Spangler, who was a staffer in southern Florida for the Republican Party during the race, told fellow campaign vets in emails Friday and over the weekend that he is working with the Biden team ďto cultivate a network of Romney alums that want to help elect Joe in November.Ē In a separate email to The Washington Times, he said...

    Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) considers himself "a straight shooter" who "calls them as I see them." That's why he says he's leading an investigation into former Obama officials for allegedly unfairly targeting President Trump and his associates during the presidential transition period in 2016, as well as a probe into Hunter Biden's time on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma, which faces corruption allegations. -------------- Romney, who sits on the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs which Johnson leads, did vote for his fellow senator's subpoena authorizations targeting former Obama officials. But he declined to say if...

    When asked to name Republican disappointments in the United States Senate, conservatives donít struggle naming names. Turncoats like former Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska who helped Democrats crucify Justice Kavanaugh. The late John McCain who helped save Obamacare. No conservative would forget the most famous modern-day RINO of all Ė Mitt ďPierre DelectoĒ Romney. Thatís just a partial list to be sure, but itís a reminder as we watch blue state governors continue with capricious and destructive coronoavirus lock downs and major Democrat-led cities erupt in anarchy. As we continue to uncover the scandal of...

    Sen. Mitt Romney predicted President Trump will be reelected this fall despite breaking with the president several times during his first term in office. ¬ďI'm confident that we will keep the majority in the Senate," Romney said Wednesday, according to Politico reporter Jake Sherman. "And I actually have long predicted the president will be reelected ‚Ā†¬ó I continue to think that's the case.¬Ē Romney, who ran for president and lost in 2012, has been one of the few Republican senators to criticize Trump for his public remarks, tweets, or policies.

    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, joined demonstrators Sunday marching to the White House in protest of George Floyd's death in the custody of Minneapolis police. About 1,000 protesters marched through Washington. Asked why it was important for him to be present at the protest, Romney, who was wearing a face covering, said: "We need a voice against racism. We need many voices against racism and against brutality." "We need to stand up and say black lives matter," added Romney, who was marching with a Christian group.

    But, far sooner than they expected, growing numbers of prominent Republicans are debating how far to go in revealing that they wonít back his reelection ó or might even vote for Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee. Theyíre feeling a fresh urgency because of Trumpís incendiary response to the protests of police brutality, atop his mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic, according to people who spoke on the condition of anonymity to disclose private discussions.

"No Americans should fear enmity and harm from those sworn to protect us. The death of George Floyd must not be in vain: Our shock and outrage must grow into collective determination to extinguish forever such racist abuse."

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) pushed back against President Trumpís claims that voting by mail disadvantages Republicans, noting that large numbers of voters in Utah, a Republican stronghold, vote by mail. "In my state, I'll bet 90 percent of us vote by mail. It works very, very well and it's a very Republican state," Romney told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday, according to ABC News. Much of the Western U.S. has voted by mail for years, and a poll released Wednesday found residents of those states are among the demographics most likely to say they would prefer to vote by mail...

    The chairman of Bain Capital, the infamous venture capital firm excoriated by Democrats during the 2012 election for outsourcing American jobs, is putting big money behind a Super PAC working to elect former Vice President Joe Biden. Joshua Bekenstein, who was one of the founders of the firm alongside Mitt Romney and now serves as its chairman, donated $250,000 to Unite the Country at the start of April, according to the Super PACís Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings. On the same day that donation was made, Bekensteinís wife, Anita, contributed a further $250,000, raising the coupleís total to half a...

    Sen. Mitt Romney, the Utah Republican, forcefully criticized the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus during a Tuesday Senate hearing and accused a Health and Human Services official of misleading the public about the US's record with testing for the virus. Romney pointed to Adm. Brett Giroir's statement ó which reflects those made by President Donald Trump ó that the US has tested twice the number of people per capita than South Korea has. But the assertion that the US's testing abilities are more robust than South Korea's makes no sense, given that the Asian nation ramped up testing far...

    WASHINGTON (AP) ó The Latest on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee hearing on the coronavirus pandemic (all times local): 1:15 p.m. Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney is taking a swipe at the Trump administrationís pandemic response, and also questioning President Donald Trumpís suggestion that his predecessor Barack Obama is responsible for the lack of a coronavirus vaccine. Romney chided administration ďtesting czarĒ Adm. Brett Giroir for taking part in a White House event celebrating nearly 9 million coronavirus tests in the U.S., much more than testing leader South Korea performed. The difference is that South Korea tested...

    Mitt Romney has slammed Donald Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic mocking him as 'not the smartest guy in the room' and saying his initial response was not a 'great moment in American leadership'. The Republican Senator laid into the president while speaking live on the Georgetown Politics Forum Tuesday evening. As well as blasting Trump's leadership style, Romney also criticized his move to stop funding to the World Health Organization and said a more centralized approach from the federal government would have been 'more effective' in tackling the pandemic.

    The NY Times via Yahoo! News ^ | April 10, 2020 | by Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman, The New York Times
    WASHINGTON - In his daily briefings on the coronavirus, President Donald Trump has brandished all the familiar tools in his rhetorical arsenal: belittling Democratic governors, demonizing the media, trading in innuendo and bulldozing over the guidance of experts. Itís the kind of performance the president relishes but one that has his advisers and Republican allies worried. As unemployment soars and the death toll skyrockets, and new polls show support for the presidentís handling of the crisis sagging, White House allies and Republican lawmakers increasingly believe the briefings are hurting the president more than helping him. Many view the sessions as...

    Republican Sens. Mitt Romney and Mike Lee on Sunday said they were going into self-quarantine after being exposed to Sen. Rand Paul, who tested positive for the coronavirus. Both Utah lawmakers said they had been advised by doctors to isolate because of the amount of time they spent in proximity to Paul, of Kentucky, who announced his diagnosis on Sunday. Romneyís office added that the senator ďhas no symptoms but will be tested.Ē

    Issues and insights ^ | February 7,2020 | I & I Editorial Board
    Both Pelosi and Romney Ė and probably almost all political figures and analysts of politics in America Ė have continually grossly underestimated Donald Trump. It became clear at his East Room event in the White House on Thursday that despite his meager experience, this man is a shrewd, steely gladiator of the political arena. Romney was looking to the post-Trump era when he cast his impeachment vote with the Democrats, betting that the GOP and the country will be pining for a washing away of Trumpism. Itís more likely Romney will soon find himself an ostracized, impotent legislator whose phone...

    American Thinker ^ | 02/07/2020 | Bert Peterson
    Nothing reveals the character of the Democratic Party more clearly than the Democrats' vote to convict based on the second article of the impeachment of Pres. Trump ó an article that was about legal disputes over subpoenas, which would normally be settled through the courts. Instead of doing that, however, the issue was sent to the Senate, where, instead of making legal arguments, Democrats simply cried "cover-up!" to Republican opposition to their demands. For this, because Trump adhered to the legal process, Democratic senators voted, and voted unanimously, to remove...not themselves, but President Trump from office. (Were they kidding?) The...

    We have seen lots of strange things happen during President Trumpís time in the White House, and Mitt Romney added to that list on Wednesday when he voted to remove Trump from office. It was the first time in American history that a U.S. Senator has voted to convict a president that belongs to the same political party, and this probably marks the beginning of the end of Romneyís political career. Amazingly, Romney voted against Trump even though he knew that it would not affect the outcome of the vote. In fact, Romney knew that he was going to be...
