    Senators aim to limit Trump's ability to remove troops from Germany BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 06/29/20 03:19 PM EDT A bipartisan group of senators is trying to place limits on President Trump's ability to remove troops from Germany unless the administration is able to meet a slew of requirements. The proposal, spearheaded by Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), would prohibit the administration from reducing the number of active-duty troops in Germany below 34,500 unless the Pentagon can certify to Congress that it is in the national security interest of the United States and would not negatively undermine European alliances or NATO....

    Veterans of Mitt Romney’s 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 “to cultivate a network of Romney alums that want to help elect Joe in November.” In a separate email to The Washington Times, he said...

    Mandatory E-Verify is critical to turn off the magnet that draws people to enter the country illegally. While continuing work to secure our southern border, Congress must also put in place measures to eliminate incentives that encourage illegal immigration.

    The Week ^ | June 15, 2020
    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...

    In 2012, Mitt Romney ran against Barack Obama on a platform of centrism and not seeing any need to appeal to conservatives. There was an arrogance that his campaign flaunted and it turned off conservatives in many ways. He lost that race, in part because of that and in part because he was demonized beyond all belief by Democrats and the national press. That demonization – from accusing him of killing a woman with cancer to making up controversy over his tax returns, and everything in between – was nothing short of scandalous because of how obvious it was that...

    Sen. Mitt Romney predicted President Trump will be reelected this fall despite breaking with the president several times during his first term in office. “I'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 ⁠— I continue to think that's the case.” 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) on Monday said his party has “an embarrassingly small share of African American votes” and would like to change that, one day after he marched in a protest in Washington. Romney said he is working with several Republican colleagues on legislation to “make some changes to the way we do our policing” in an effort to crack down on aberrant officers who violate civil rights or use excessive force against people of certain races. But Romney said he didn’t march for the cause Sunday because of politics but because he felt it was his moral duty...

    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.

Mitt Romney (R-Utah) joined protesters marching in Washington, D.C., in response to the death of George Floyd on Sunday as demonstrations continue to sweep the country amid calls for police reform. Videos and photos of the event showed Romney walking in the street while wearing a mask to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, which health officials have warned could spike as a result of the massive demonstrations around the country.

    Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney praised former Secretary of Defense General James Mattis for his “stunning and powerful” critique of President Donald Trump’s response to protests over the death of George Floyd. “General Mattis’ letter was stunning and powerful.” Romney told reporters outside a GOP luncheon on Thursday. “General Mattis is a man of extraordinary sacrifice. He’s an American patriot. He’s an individual whose judgment I respect, and I think the world of him.” If I ever had to choose somebody to be in a foxhole with, it would be with General Mattis. What a wonderful, wonderful man.” Mattis, who...

    A fascinating result considering how he was polling after his fateful impeachment vote. I’ll give you three theories to explain it. A new UtahPolicy.com/KUTV 2News survey shows 56 percent of Utah voters either “strongly” or “somewhat” approve of Romney’s job performance. 42 percent say they disapprove. Romney is in a strong political position right now with a net positive approval of +14.That’s a massive reversal from our previous survey in March when just 36 percent of Utahns approved of Romney’s job performance, while 49 percent disapproved…69 percent of “strong” Republicans disapprove of how Romney is handling his job, but...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) pushed back against President Trump’s 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 PAC’s Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings. On the same day that donation was made, Bekenstein’s wife, Anita, contributed a further $250,000, raising the couple’s total to half a...

    During President Trump's impeachment, former U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch testified before Congress [under oath] that she knew little beyond an initial briefing and "press reports" about Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian natural gas firm that had hired Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter and was dogged by a corruption investigation. "It just wasn't a big deal," she testified under oath on October 11, 2019. But newly unearthed State Department memos obtained under the Freedom of Information Act [show otherwise].
