  • Letter: Romney isn't representing Utah

    Daily Herald ^ | 2 hrs ago 12/6/19 | Paul Thorpe
    It is time for conservative Republicans to start looking for a replacement for Mitt Romney. He has proven an embarrassment for the state of Utah and the people who elected him. He has shown himself to be a Republican in name only (RINO), in the model of John McCain. He has not supported the president or his policies which he should do. Instead his narcissism pushes him to always keep in the limelight by whatever means instead of representing the people here. In contrast, Mike Lee keeps on track and does his job. We hardly hear about his work except...

    Senator Mitt Romney of Utah broke with his Republican colleagues on Tuesday, telling reporters that, based on testimony from American officials, he does not believe there is evidence of Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election. Romney’s comments come after U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs David Hale, the No. 3 State Department official, told a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing that he was not aware of any Ukraine meddling in the 2016 election. “I saw no evidence from our intelligence community nor from our representatives today from the Department of State that there is any evidence of any...

  • Collins, Murkowski Won’t Co-Sponsor Graham’s Resolution Criticizing House’s Impeachment Process

    As of Friday afternoon, 50 of the Senate’s 53 Republicans had signed on to co-sponsor it. The three holdouts were exactly whom you’d expect: Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Mitt Romney. But their delay in joining the effort didn’t necessarily mean they’d ultimately refuse. Recall that the three retiring GOP members of the caucus, Lamar Alexander, Mike Enzi, and Johnny Isakson, also took longer than the rest to declare their support for the resolution. But in the end, all three did.Not Collins and Murkowski, though. They’re now on record: Count them out. Presumably the same goes for Mitt. Granted,...

    NBC News ^ | October 27, 2019 | Adam Edelman and Jonathan Allen
    SALT LAKE CITY — One man is an island: Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah. The 72-year-old former Republican presidential nominee has isolated himself from Republicans in the Senate, in his home state and across the country by occasionally — but strongly — criticizing President Donald Trump, including the president's efforts to enlist the aid of foreign governments to probe a leading political opponent. "By all appearances, the President's brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling," Romney tweeted earlier this month. In recent weeks, the senator's acts of rebellion against the...

    Senate Republicans could convict, or threaten to convict, thereby pressuring Trump to resign. They could even work out a deal by which they acquit in exchange for Trump not seeking a second term. Each of these options would leave the Republicans in need of a compromise candidate with very little time left on the clock. Republicans would need someone who understood the requirements of a national campaign, someone with widespread (and largely positive) name recognition, and someone on the record opposing both Trump and Trumpism. Senator Mitt Romney is all of those things. Running Romney would immediately alienate the Trump...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on Friday that all but three GOP senators had signed onto his resolution condemning the House impeachment inquiry. GOP Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Mitt Romney (Utah) have not yet signed onto the resolution, according to an updated list of co-sponsors shared by Graham the day after he introduced the measure. A spokesperson for Collins didn't immediately respond to a request for comment about whether or not she would back the resolution, which formally opposes the impeachment inquiry and urges House Democrats to hold an official vote on it. A spokeswoman for...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is spearheading the resolution, which is backed by 44 GOP senators including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Graham, during a press conference with reporters, lashed out the House impeachment inquiry calling it a "secret proceeding" and a "rogue action" that "denies due process." "The process in the House today I think is a danger to the future of the presidency," Graham told reporters. He argued that under the current procedure Trump was "pretty much shut out," adding "God help future presidents." The GOP senators not cosponsoring the resolution as of Thursday afternoon,...

    US Republican Senator Mitt Romney has revealed he uses a secret Twitter account under the name Pierre Delecto. In an interview with The Atlantic magazine on Sunday, the former presidential candidate admitted he had a "lurker" Twitter handle to follow the US political conversation anonymously. While he did not reveal its name, U.S. news site Slate posted an article speculating it could be Pierre Delecto @qaws 9876. Asked to confirm by a journalist, Mr. Romney said "C'est moi" ("It's me").....

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) told the Atlantic on Sunday that he believes the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry investigating President Donald Trump will serve as an “inflection point in American history.” Atlantic staff writer McKay Coppins released an interview on Sunday detailing extended conversations with Romney regarding his views on the U.S. Senate, his attacks on President Trump, as well as his opinions on impeachment. Coppins wrote that while most Republicans have backed the president amidst the impeachment inquiry, Romney continues to stay “open to the idea that the president may need to be evicted from the Oval Office.”Sen. Romney said that he believes that...

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

    Sen. 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 ErdoÄŸan agreed to halt TurkeyÂ’s offensive in Syria for 120 hours in...

    The Club for Growth, which opposed Trump in the 2016 primary, is spending $40,000 to show the ad in Utah. The Club for Growth, a conservative advocacy group, is going up with TV ads attacking Sen. Mitt Romney — a preemptive warning shot against fellow Republicans who are considering getting behind impeachment. The 30-second commercial, which will begin running Thursday digitally and on Fox News stations in Utah, portrays Romney as a sunglasses-wearing spy and accuses him of being a “Democrat secret asset” who is “plotting to take down President Trump with impeachment.” The move comes as the first-term Utah...

    As House Democrats push forward with an impeachment inquiry into President Trump, Republicans have largely rushed to Mr. Trump’s defense, or at least tempered their criticism to avoid his furious reprisals. Among the handful of exceptions, though, there has been none louder or more prominent than Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, a figure who once embodied the essence of the Republican Party before Mr. Trump commandeered it, and is now in a lonely category of his own. Since the first reports a week ago that Mr. Trump urged President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joseph R....

    Mitt Romney’s national security advisor in his 2012 campaign sits on the board of directors of Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company that paid Hunter Biden $50k a month despite his complete lack of credentials or qualifications. And it also an odd coincidence that Mitt has as CNN puts it “been a lone Republican voice expressing concern about President Donald Trump's July phone call with Volodymyr Zelensky in which Trump asked Ukraine's President to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his family.”
