[Ed. – Yeah, Mittens is a regular profile in courage.]
Many liberals praised Sen. Mitt Romney after he announced his intention to vote to remove President Trump from office, while members of his Republican Party attacked him.
The Utah senator made the announcement just ahead of the Senate’s vote on the two articles of impeachment. He voted to convict Trump of abuse of power while acquitting the president of obstruction of Congress.
Romney explained his decision, saying that Trump is “guilty of an appalling abuse of public trust,” while going on to claim that “there is no question in my mind that were their names not Biden, the president would have never done what he did.”
While Republicans were quick to denounce Romney, members of the Democratic Party praised him.
Former 2020 presidential candidate Julian Castro thanked Romney “for putting your oath to country before party.”
