[Ed. – Yes, it sends chills down the spine, to think of the courage it took to vote against Trump — in Washington, D.C. Horatio at the bridge, folks.]
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) is receiving a profile in courage award from the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation for his “historic vote” to impeach then-President Trump during his first impeachment trial last year, the foundation announced on Friday.
“Senator Romney‘s commitment to our Constitution makes him a worthy successor to the senators who inspired my father to write ‘Profiles in Courage,’” former Ambassador Caroline Kennedy said in a statement. “He reminds us that our Democracy depends on the courage, conscience and character of our elected officials.”
Romney was the sole Republican senator to vote to impeach Trump last February on a charge of abusing his power over the former president’s effort to press Ukraine to investigate now-President Biden and his son Hunter Biden’s dealings in Ukraine.
