Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) betrayed his family, his country, and his oath with his announcement today that he will be voting to convict President Donald Trump in the impeachment trial.
Romney cloaked his cowardly decision in religiosity, claiming that it was his deep faith that brought him to his conclusion to join the witch hunt launched by the Democrats.
“I take an oath before God as enormously consequential,” Romney said while holding back tears. “I knew from the outset that being tasked with judging the President – the leader of my own party – would be the most difficult I had ever faced. I was not wrong,” he said.
Romney denigrated the arguments of President Trump’s defense team, reciting Democrat talking points about “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
“To maintain that the lack of a codified and comprehensive list of all the outrageous acts that a president might conceivably commit renders Congress powerless to remove such a president defies reason,” he said.
Even though Romney claims that he supports a “great deal of what the president has done” and votes with him “80 percent of the time,” he intends to vote to impeach Trump anyway because he says that’s what God would want him to do.
“I’m sure to hear abuse from the president and his supporters. Does anyone seriously believe that I would consent to these consequences other than an inescapable conviction that my oath before God demanded of me?” Romney asked.
Romney concluded with a diatribe that demonstrated his extreme narcissism and grandiose sense of self-importance.
“With my vote, I will tell my children and their children that I did my duty to the best of my ability, believing that my country expected it of me,” he said – adding that history will remember him as among the senators who chided Trump for committing “grievously wrong” actions.
Of course, Romney rushed to the fake news media to criticize President Trump in a coordinated roll-out designed to hurt the GOP.
“The president did in fact pressure a foreign government to corrupt our election process,” Romney told The Atlantic. “And really, corrupting an election process in a democratic republic is about as abusive and egregious an act against the Constitution—and one’s oath—that I can imagine. It’s what autocrats do.”
Romney made it clear his problems are with Trump’s anti-globalist policies as president, and he maintains a vendetta against Trump because of his new-found pariah status within the GOP.
“The letters with Kim Jong Un didn’t seem to frighten people away … The meeting with the Russian ambassador in the White House right after the election didn’t seem to bother people,” Romney complained.
“I get that a lot—‘Be with the president,’” Romney said. “And I’ll say, ‘Regardless of his point of view? Regardless of the issue?’ And they say yes. And … it’s like, ‘Well, no, I can’t do that.’”
Romney has done himself no favors, and the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., is leading the campaign to expel Romney from the Senate.
Mitt Romney is forever bitter that he will never be POTUS. He was too weak to beat the Democrats then so he’s joining them now.
He’s now officially a member of the resistance & should be expelled from the @GOP.

Big League Politics reported about an effort that may result in Romney being recalled from his position in the Senate:
As Mitt Romney grandstands in the U.S Senate’s doomed Trump impeachment trial in an effort to demonstrate his own moral superiority, the Utah legislature is mulling a measure that would allow the state’s citizens to recall their senators.
The measure could hypothetically be used to recall Romney from office. Such a possibility is an acute irony, considering Romney appears to be the only Republican senator enthusiastic about impeaching President Donald Trump.
Rep. Tim Quinn of Heber City introduced the bill in the state house. Utah doesn’t currently have a process to recall sitting U.S Senators, a problem his legislation would solve.
He says the bill isn’t designed with any specific Senator in mind, but it’s hard not to imagine the measure being used to impeach Romney, considering the Never Trump senator’s extreme unpopularity in his own state.
HB217 would create a system in which Utah voters could set up a recall election to remove senators. 25% of active voters in the state would have to sign a petition requesting a recall vote, which would take place during the next scheduled election. Senators are immune from the prospect of a recall election within a year of their initial term.
Considering that almost half of Utah Republicans don’t approve of Romney’s representation in the Senate, it’s more than reasonable to imagine a quarter of the state’s population voting to remove the failed presidential candidate, whose connection to Utah has always been dubious.
Romney’s days may be numbered after committing political suicide with his vote to convict President Trump today.

Somali Community Leader Admits Ilhan Omar DID Marry Her Brother as Part of Immigration Fraud Scheme
They are now admitting the obvious.
Somali community leader Abdihakim Osman, 40, has confirmed that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) did in fact marry her brother for the purposes of committing immigration fraud.
Osman gave an interview to the Daily Mail in which he gave the timeline of how and why the illicit arrangement happened.
“No one knew there had been a wedding until the media turned up the marriage certificate years later,” Osman said.
Osman contends that Omar married her brother Ahmed Elmi in 2009 so he could stay in the states and go to college. Elmi is extremely effeminate and believed to be homosexual. After he married Omar, Elmi became a citizen and started studying at North Dakota State University beside his sister.
Omar’s office would not formally deny the allegations after the Daily Mail reached out to them.
“The Congresswoman is focused on the work her constituents sent her to Washington to accomplish,” Omar’s spokesman said.
Osman noted that Elmi was often around Omar and her now ex-husband Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, nicknamed “Southside,” who was well-known in the Somali community as a soccer star. At the time, she was married to Hirsi in a Muslim ceremony that was not formalized by the state.
“People began noticing that Ilhan and Southside (Hirsi) were often with a very effeminate young guy,” Osman said.
‘He was very feminine in the way he dressed — he would wear light lipstick and pink clothes and very, very, short shorts in the summer. People started whispering about him, ” he added. “[Hirsi] and Ilhan both told me it was Ilhan’s brother and he had been living in London but he was mixing with what were seen as bad influences that the family did not like. So they sent him to Minneapolis as ‘rehab.'”
Osman, who administrates a Facebook page for Somalis called Xerta Shekh, noted that Omar tried to keep her illicit marriage with her brother quiet from the Somali community but word eventually got out.
‘When [Hirsi] and Ilhan got married, a lot of people were invited. It was a big Islamic wedding uniting two large clans in the Minneapolis community,” Osman said. “I would say there were 100-150 people there. When she married Elmi, no one even knew about it.”
Due to the lack of paperwork from third-world Somalia, it would be difficult to conclusively prove that Omar and Ersi are brothers in the court of law. This has allowed them to get away with their fraud for over a decade now.
Christian minister Wilecia Harris reportedly married Omar and Elsi. She runs the Great and Mighty Works Ministries in Richfield, Minnesota, which is described as a “nondenominational, Bible believing, Bible teaching, and Bible living ministry that believes in being a living example of Jesus the anointed one!” Osman believes that they had to go outside of the Somali community to conduct their marriage because a Muslim imam would have been more likely to realize they were siblings.
“She said she needed to get papers for her brother to go to school. We all thought she was just getting papers together to allow him to stay in this country. Once she had the papers they could apply for student loans,” Osman said.
“They both moved to North Dakota to go to school but she was still married to [Hirsi]. In the Somali way, the only marriage that mattered was the one in the mosque. Ilhan came back to Minneapolis all the time to see her family, but her brother didn’t come with her,” he added.
After these new revelations, further investigations are needed into Omar’s dark past, and the anti-American Congresswoman may need to submit to a DNA test to determine conclusively that Elmi is her brother.
