    Senator Mitt Romney conceded that former President Donald Trump's "hold" over the GOP is "unlikely to be swayed" despite an ongoing grand jury investigation in New York that could lead to criminal charges against the former commander in chief. Prosecutors in New York have convened a grand jury as part of a criminal investigation into Trump and his business practices, The Washington Post first reported this week. Although Trump and his business—the Trump Organization—have been under investigation for some time, legal experts have said the convening of a grand jury demonstrates the seriousness of the charges being considered. But Romney...

    WASHINGTON — Sen. Mitt Romney took issue with the suggestion that children develop better in an environment outside their homes rather than being reared by one or both parents during a Senate committee hearing Tuesday. The Utah Republican said Democratic proposals on child care seem to have "significant bias" toward getting women and men into the labor force as opposed to saying it's acceptable for a parent to stay home. "It does seem like the administration strongly prefers getting kids out of the home and getting both parents into the workforce," he said.

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) called the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol an “insurrection against the Constitution” as some GOP lawmakers sought to minimize the violence this week. The comment came as several Republicans, including Reps. Andrew Clyde (Ga.), Jody Hice (Ga.) and Paul Gosar (Ariz.), downplayed or made false claims about the attack. Clyde asserted during a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing on Wednesday that calling the events of Jan. 6 an "insurrection" was a “boldfaced lie.” Speaking to HuffPost on Thursday, Romney noted that the mob attack resulted in severe property damage and death. “I was...

    Laura Gaddy, who grew up as a devout Latter-day Saint in North Carolina, says she felt her surety in church principles begin to unravel in 2015, when leaders pulled Joseph Smith’s “seer stone” from a vault and showed it to the media. For her, according to court documents, the event signaled that the faith’s founding prophet had not translated the Book of Mormon, the church’s signature scripture, directly from gold plates inscribed with reformed Egyptian characters, but instead had dictated the narrative “from a stone with his head in a hat.” Gaddy came to be deeply troubled by what she...

    NOTE DATE PUBLISHED: August 29, 2012 -- Take a typical Bain transaction involving an Indiana-based company called American Pad and Paper. Bain bought Ampad in 1992 for just $5 million, financing the rest of the deal with borrowed cash. Within three years, Ampad was paying $60 million in annual debt payments, plus an additional $7 million in management fees. A year later, Bain led Ampad to go public, cashed out about $50 million in stock for itself and its investors, charged the firm $2 million for arranging the IPO and pocketed another $5 million in “management” fees. Ampad wound up...

    Two Republican senators — Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Mitt Romney of Utah — got into a confrontation on the Senate floor Saturday after Romney voted with Democrats to allow witnesses in the impeachment trial of former President Trump. Reporters sitting in the Senate gallery said they saw a “visibly upset” Johnson turn to Romney and point at him after the vote. The two men then got into a back-and-forth, with Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) trying to play referee. Voices were raised, and at one point Johnson was overheard saying he blamed Romney. Johnson is a staunch Trump ally who...

    Taking a page from Mao Zedong, the late leader of the Chinese Communist Party, on how to deal with unbelievers, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) insists that "the only way our country will ever achieve unity is for all the Republicans who expressed doubt about the integrity of the presidential election to publicly acknowledge their error, beg for forgiveness, and yield to the mercy the Democratic Party might extend to them." "It doesn't really matter whether they personally are convinced that the election was fair," Romney advised. "Just repeating the words helps put a person on the road to acceptance into...

    “I think we should have nothing to do with Marjorie Taylor Greene, and think we should repudiate the things she said and move away from her,” Romney told reporters… Asked if he was surprised by McConnell’s comments, Romney said it was important for the Republican Party to “separate ourselves from the people in the wacky weeds.” “If we don’t, then our opposition tries to brand us with their image and with their point of view, which has been detrimental to any party that doesn’t do that,” Romney said.

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney and QAnon-supporting Congressman Marjorie Taylor Greene took swipes at each other on Twitter Saturday after Green said she'd had a 'great call' with former President Donald Trump. In a series of tweets, Greene wrote that Trump had given her his support despite the recent backlash against the controversial Georgia lawmaker, claiming that the American people are 'absolutely 100% loyal' to Trump and that she 'won't back down' as she battles against the 'enemy within'. 'I had a GREAT call with my all-time favorite POTUS, President Trump!' Greene wrote in the first of her Saturday tweets.

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) during an online forum presented by the Economic Club of Chicago on Tuesday said Republicans must publicly announce President Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election legitimately to achieve national unity. Romney said, “There is no question that the nation is divided now, and there is a lot of anger. To the people on my side who say an impeachment trial is going to inflame passions more. I say, first of all, have you gone out publicly and said that there was not widespread voter fraud and that Joe Biden is the legitimate president of the...

    CHICAGO — U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney on Tuesday accused fellow Republicans of fomenting political division by perpetuating the myth that massive voter fraud denied Donald Trump reelection, and said unity will be difficult to achieve without acknowledging Democratic President Joe Biden won a fair contest. Romney, in a livestreamed interview with Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar on behalf of the Economic Club of Chicago, also said he shared hopes that the Jan. 6 uprising at the Capitol might lead to more bipartisanship but said there’s been no sign of any change in rhetoric.

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney is grieving over, as CNN anchor Dana Bash put it, President Donald Trump's "very firm grip on the Republican Party." Bash asked Romney whether he fears the party won't "be able to overcome Trumpism in the near future." Romney didn't object to Bash's negative characterization of Trumpism. He merely responded that he believes "Trump will continue to have a substantial influence on the party" and that those other than Trump who are rumored to be GOP presidential candidates in 2024 "are trying to appeal to kind of a populist approach." Romney concluded: "I don't think Trumpism...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Thursday said it was "stunning" for the White House to not issue a response regarding multiple alleged U.S. government cyber attacks stemming from Russia. The senator from Utah tweeted an abbreviated version of the statement he told SiriusXM’s Chief Washington Correspondent Olivier Knox in a prerecorded interview, noting the recent reports of Russian hacks into government agencies showed "alarming U.S. vulnerability" and "apparent cyber warfare weakness." “I think the White House needs to say something aggressive about what happened. This is almost as if you had a Russian bomber flying undetected over the country, including...

Mitt Romney (R-UT) predicted Tuesday that the president’s “substantial influence” will remain in the GOP. Romney told “CNN Newsroom” that looking ahead to the 2024 presidential election, he did not think “Trumpism is going away” because the people rumored to run then are also “trying to appeal to kind of a populist approach.”

More than 2,800 Americans were reported dead just yesterday alone, more than 100,000 people are hospitalized all across the country. The CDC director says the next three months will be, in his words, the most difficult time in the public health history of this nation.
