    Republicans lined up to blame President Donald Trump for losing at least one Georgia Senate runoff Wednesday. Senator Mitt Romney claimed that Trump pushing allegations Georgia 'rigged' the presidential election could cost Republicans the Senate. 'It turns out that telling the voters that the election was rigged is not a great way to turn out your voters,' Romney told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday morning as he prepares for a joint session of Congress to certify the Electoral College results. In Georgia's two Senate runoff elections on Tuesday, there was a less-than-expected Election Day turnout – a bad sign for...

    Mitt Romney was met with a plane full of angry patriots who chanted “traitor” as he boarded a flight to DC. Airplanes heading to DC from across the nation are currently packed with Trump supporters ahead of the massive Stop the Steal rally on Tuesday. As Romney got on the plane, a chant of “traitor” broke out after a woman yelled for the passengers to let him know what they think. As it dissipated, people began grilling him about why he is betraying his voters.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called the upcoming electoral vote certification "the most consequential vote" on a call with senators this week, according to Senator Mitt Romney, who was on the call. Congress will convene on January 6 to count each state's electoral votes and reaffirm President-elect Joe Biden's victory.

    With President-elect Joe Biden being voted the winner of the 2020 election by the Electoral College and President Donald Trump seemingly on the way out of the White House in January, Sen. 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.”

    Few Republicans have spoken out publicly against President Trump's refusal to concede the election he definitively lost, as he and his legal team continue to promote baseless claims of voter fraud. Mr. Trump's campaign has launched lawsuits in several states won by President-elect Joe Biden alleging voting discrepancies, but nearly all of these challenges have been unsuccessful. Nonetheless, the president's legal team has continued to baselessly claim that fraud occurred. In a rambling, often incoherent news conference on Thursday, the president's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani falsely said that Democrats were attempting to steal the election... But a few Senate Republicans...

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that President Donald Trump had “relativity relaxed relationship with the truth.” Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Does it concern you at all that President Trump and his team are out there saying that he won and lying about the integrity of the election with wild allegations?” Romney said, “You’re not going to change the nature of President Trump in these last days, apparently, of his presidency. He is who he is and he has a relativity relaxed relationship with the truth so he is going to keep on fighting...

Homeland Security Committee chairman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) has defended the investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter’s dealings with Ukraine and his role on the board of energy company Burisma.

    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 has proposed raising the wages of restaurant employees and other essential workers by $12 an hour through July as a way of raising their compensation above what they could collect in unemployment benefits and other forms of relief. Under the Utah Republican’s Patriot Pay Plan, employers would eat $3 of the increase, with the rest generated from a federal tax credit. For employees earning no more than $50,000 on an annualized basis, employers would get a refundable tax credit equal to $9 an hour, up to a maximum of $1,440 a month per employee.

    President Trump on Thursday hosted phone calls with dozens of bipartisan lawmakers, including every Republican senator -- except Mitt Romney. The president asked the lawmakers to serve on a panel to discuss how to move forward with reopening the economy, called the “Opening Up America Again Congressional Group.” “The president announced that he will soon provide guidance to America’s governors to determine their ability to reignite the economies in their respective states,” the White House said in a news release. “The dialogue between the president, senior administration officials and the bipartisan group of members of Congress also included a range...

    Sen. Mitt Romney is among a bipartisan group of lawmakers demanding that President Donald Trump explain why he fired the intelligence community inspector general. The eight senators, led by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, say the explanation Trump gave for removing Michael Atkinson was insufficient and does not comply with the law. The president cited a lack of confidence in the intelligence community’s top watchdog. “Congressional intent is clear that an expression of lost confidence, without further explanation, is not sufficient to fulfill the requirements of the statute,” the senators wrote in a letter Thursday. “This is in large part because...

    Mitt Romney, who was the only Republican senator to break party lines and vote in favor of Donald Trump being impeached at his Senate trial earlier this month, is now attacking the president again. This time, the Utah senator is claiming that the Trump administration is totally unprepared for a potential coronavirus outbreak. As Trump tried to tamp concerns over the coronavirus in New Delhi, saying that the situation was “under control” and is a “problem that’s going to go away,” Romney was confronting officials in Washington D.C. at a private briefing on the virus. As a member of the...

    The Democrats’ impeachment push is dead. A lot of us knew this would be the outcome. Republicans control the Senate. There was no way 67 Senators were going to sign off on this hyper-partisan witch-hunt. This was dead from the start. Still, we all knew Democrats were fishing for reasons to impeach Trump. Russian collusion was the top idea for two years before Robert Mueller’s report killed that narrative. Then, came this Ukraine angle, which was an offshoot of the Trump-Kremlin collusion myth. You all know the story. Trump allegedly threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine unless they investigated Hunter...
  • Vanity Re: Romney's conscience

    02/06/2020 2:31:14 PM PST · by Jim Robinson · 51 replies
    While governor of Massachusetts, Romney wrestled his conscience over religious and moral issues like abortion and homosexual marriage and even though his Faith (assuming he believes in the bible) teaches otherwise, he found a way to personally justify both. In fact, he admitted that he was in favor of abortion for most of his adult life. His conscience allowed him to become pro-life only after it also allowed him to switch most of his long-held principles from liberal to conservative so he could run for president as a republican. I think Mitt's conscience works for the other side. Expediency trumps...

    Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said on Thursday that Republicans in Utah are not pleased with the state's other Republican senator, Mitt Romney, after he voted to convict President Trump for abuse of power in the Senate impeachment trial. “There will be some people who might be happy with it, and they might be called Democrats, for the most part. I think Republicans are very upset about it. And I, for one, disagree with it and disagree with it strongly,” Lee told Shannon Bream on “Fox News at Night.” ~snip~ Lee pushed back on Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., for praising Romney’s...

    Trumpers are going to read that headline and respond, “YES, AND HE ALWAYS WAS,” but I don’t think that’s true. There’s too much for him to lose and too little to gain by casting a vote to remove that’s functionally meaningless to make this an easy call for him. He has almost five full years left in the Senate and may well spend all five having to deal with an embittered Trump administration that won’t do him a single favor if he votes the wrong way here. He’ll piss off thousands upon thousands of Republican constituents back home, some of...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) on Monday became the first Republican senator to state that he would like John Bolton, former White House national security advisor, to testify at the Senate impeachment trial if subpoenaed. “I would like to be able to hear from John Bolton. What the process is to make that happen, I don’t have an answer for you,” Romney told reporters on Capitol Hill when asked whether he would be open to hearing from Bolton.
