    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney confirmed he has a secret Twitter account, which was opened in 2011, shortly after he announced he was running for president. The senator discussed the account in an interview with The Atlantic but did not reveal what his name was at the time. After the interview, however, Slate was able to determine it was the locked account of Pierre Delecto, with the handle @qaws9876.

    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, took a series of shots at President Trump in an interview that aired Sunday, saying that some of the presidents rhetoric appealed to racism and claiming that under his leadership, the US was abandoning allied Kurdish fighters in Syria. Romney, who said he wrote in his wife, Ann, when he voted in 2016, told Axios on HBO, The places where I would be most critical of the president would be in matters that were divisive, that appeared to be appealing to racism or misogyny, and those are the kinds of things I think that have been...

    Michigan Independent Rep. Justin Amash blasted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a Donald Trump asset, arguing in a Friday night Twitter post that Clintons criticism of Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard will only drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump. The thing we know for sure is that Hillary Clinton is a Donald Trump asset, Amash, a frequent Trump critic who recently left the Republican Party to become an Independent, tweeted Friday night. Hillary does and did drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump. Her attack on Tulsi does likewise. In my...

    President Donald Trumps reelection campaign believes the ongoing fight over impeachment will rally the partys base and make the difference in key races next year. Members of the Trump campaigns communications team told MLive that House Democrats only flipped Republican seats in 2018 because 8.8 million people who voted for Trump in 2016 stayed home during the midterm elections. Tim Murtaugh, communications director for Trumps 2020 campaign, said House Democrats ongoing impeachment inquiry will bolster Trumps prospects of reelection and GOP candidates chances of victory down the ballot. In 2018, GOP candidates lost races for all statewide offices, control of...

    House Democrats believe they have the 217 votes needed to pass articles of impeachment against President Trump stemming from his Ukraine call -- enough votes to impeach Trump and send articles to the Senate -- even before their planned hearings or formal investigation. A senior member of the House Democratic Caucus told Fox News on Sunday it's unlikely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will give in to the president's demand for an "inquiry vote." The source said that while leadership hasn't officially whipped or nose-counted a vote to "impeach," they believed the numbers were there based on the 227 votes...

    The newly rebellious senator has become an outspoken dissident in Trumps Republican Party, just in time for the presidents impeachment trial..... Mitt Romney is leaning forward in his chair, his eyes flashing, his voice sharp. Its a strange look for the 72-year-old senator, who typically affects a measured, somber tone when discussing Donald Trumps various moral deficiencies. But after weeks of escalating combat with the presidentover Ukraine, and China, and Syria, and impeachmentthe gentleman from Utah suddenly appears ready to unload.

    A GOP Senator met with more than 100 Indian contract workers in Congress and publicly urged them to lobby U.S. Senators for passage of his legislation to give citizenship to more Indian workers who push middle-class Americans out of college-graduate jobs. Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) made the request on Thursday, shortly his fourth bid to pass his S.286 green-card giveaway bill. The bill was quickly blocked by an objection from a Democratic Senator while the other 52 GOP Senators did not speak out. Were now down to one objector, just one, Lee claimed, adding:

    FULL TITLE: Jason Chaffetz: Pelosi and impeachment There have already been 3 votes. Here's why there may not be a fourth Speaker Pelosi isn't refusing to hold a vote on impeachment. She is refusing to hold a fourth vote on impeachment. There have already been three votes. They all failed. Miserably. In other words, Congress has explicitly voted NOT to pursue impeachment. In December 2017, January 2018, and against in July 2019 under Pelosi's leadership, the House held votes on whether to open an impeachment inquiry. The results weren't even close. All three votes came up as "privileged resolutions."...

    During a speech on the Senate floor on Thursday, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) stated that while he welcomes the announcement of a ceasefire in Syria, It is far from a victory. Romney said, I welcome the vice presidents announcement of a ceasefire, which will prevent further loss of life. I hope the agreement is honored.

Serious questions remain about how the decision was reached to precipitously withdraw from Syria and why that decision was reached.

Mitt Romney (R-Utah) ripped the administration over the recently announced cease-fire in Syria, calling President Trump's decision to withdraw troops "a bloodstain in the annals of American history." "The announcement today is being portrayed as a victory. It is far from a victory. Serious questions remain about how the decision was reached precipitously to withdraw from Syria and why that decision was reached," Romney said. Romney's Senate floor speech came after Vice President Pence announced a five-day cease-fire. Under the agreement Pence said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan agreed to halt Turkey’s offensive in Syria for 120 hours in...

    As lawmakers heard statistics Wednesday on the state of gun crime in Utah, a new study shows Utahs rate of gun ownership has increased more than any other state over the past decade. The study, conducted by Security.org using FBI background check data, said Utahs rate of gun sales per 1,000 adults grew 80.4% between 2009 and 2018. Only the District of Columbia, which recorded a jump of over 600%, had a greater increase which is likely tied to the Supreme Courts 2008 ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller, striking down the districts most restrictive gun laws.

    Sen. Mitt Romney on Thursday criticized President Trumps deal with Turkey for a five-day cease-fire in its conflict with the Kurds in Syria. The announcement today is being portrayed as a victory. It is far from a victory. Serious questions remain about how the decision was reached precipitously to withdraw from Syria and why that decision was reached, the Utah Republican said on the floor of the Senate. Given the initial details of the cease-fire agreement, the administration must also explain what Americas future role will be in the region. What happens now to the Kurds and why Turkey will...
