    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.

    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.”

    Senator Mitt Romney (R- UT) said Monday on CNBC’s “The News” that there was no evidence to back President Donald Trump’s claims the 2020 presidential election was stolen for President-elect Joe Biden. Addressing Attorney General William Barr’s resignation, Smith said, “He’s claiming fraud, senator, and there’s no evidence of it. Bill Barr didn’t go along with it, and now he’s out.”

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) slammed the Senate’s investigation of Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings as a “political exercise” in September, saying it was “not the legitimate role of government.” Those criticisms now look shortsighted, as Hunter Biden has admitted that he is under federal investigation.

    "This is madness. We have a process, recounts are appropriate, going to the court is approp & pursuing every legal avenue is appropriate, but trying to get electors not to do what the people voted to do is madness," Frank Thorp V of NBC News quoted Romney as saying. A representative for Romney confirmed his statement to Business Insider. President Donald Trump's campaign and some allied Republicans have waged lawsuits in multiple states seeking to overturn the 2020 election results. President-elect Joe Biden's victory became clear days after Election Day, but Trump has yet to concede.

    President Trump took to social media and slammed Mitt Romney as a “RINO” after the Utah Senator called his attempts to contest the election “undemocratic.” RINO = Republican in Name Only. “RINO Mitt Romney should read this,” he wrote. “I’m sure, however, that he feels he got slaughter(ed) by Obama fair and square.” Not content with settling on the RINO remarks, President Trump shared another insult for Romney on Twitter. He retweeted a message which read, “Romney has lost his mind since 2016.”

    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 Thursday on “The Axe Files” podcast that President Donald Trump’s claims of voter fraud seem dubious because “the president said before the election that if he were to lose, it would be because of voter fraud.” Romney said, “At this stage, we haven’t heard any evidence of a widespread voter fraud effort that would result in a change in the outcome of the election.”

He is who he is and he has a relativity relaxed relationship with the truth so he is going to keep on fighting...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) chastised President Trump for “recklessly inflaming destructive and dangerous passions. Even if his claim of a stolen election is true, raising that issue at this late date threatens our democracy. Democratic cheating is, as former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) points out, ‘a time-honored tradition.’ Saner Republicans have long realized that this is something we must learn to live with lest we fatality undermine the unity necessary for Democrats to govern.” “Back in the 1960 election, Richard Nixon was aware that the election was marred by fraudulent votes in Illinois, but decided that for the good...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Friday slammed President Trump for refusing to denounce QAnon, a group that has spread false information on social media about COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement and which the FBI warns is a domestic terror threat. “The president’s unwillingness to denounce an absurd and dangerous conspiracy theory last night continues an alarming pattern: politicians and parties refuse to forcefully and convincingly repudiate groups like antifa, white supremacists and conspiracy peddlers,” Romney said in a statement tweeted Friday afternoon. “Similarly troubling is their silence regarding anti-vaxxers, militias and anarchists,” he added. “Rather than expel the...

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah is stressing that the country’s politics has “moved away from the spirited debate to a vile, vituperative, hate-filled morass that is unbecoming of any free nation.” And the 2012 GOP presidential nominee warns that the "rabid attacks kindle the conspiracy mongers and the haters" to launch "dangerous action” such as the recent kidnapping plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Romney, the most vocal Republican critic of President Trump in Congress, took to Twitter on Tuesday to take aim at the president.

    It has been five days since Senator Rand Paul and his wife were harassed and threatened outside of the White House after President Trump’s acceptance speech. And while most of the attention has been on Senator Kamala Harris’ appalling silence in response to her colleague’s attack, some are wondering why Mitt Romney isn’t out there in the spotlight every day denouncing it as “appalling.”
