Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) told reporters today that the contents of a rough phone transcript between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky are “deeply troubling” and that he refuses to take impeachment of Trump off the table.

Romney was not clear exactly what he found “deeply troubling” about the conversation, in which Trump brought up legitimate instances of corruption related to former Vice President Joe Biden and the private cybersecurity contractor CrowdStrike.

“I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it,” Trump said to Zelensky about Crowdstrike, who handled the inspection of the DNC’s servers allegedly hacked by Russians.

“I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike … I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it,” Trump continued.

“There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me,” Trump said to Zelensky about Biden.

Biden was caught on video during an appearance at the Council on Foreign Relations in 2016 boasting about how he strong-armed Ukraine into firing a prosecutor believed to be investigating his son’s shady business dealings within the country:

Romney is silent about all of this corruption while continuing to place blame on President Trump. Since being elected to the Senate, he has become the new John McCain – doggedly opposing the President at every turn.

Romney has even refused to endorse the President’s re-election bid, in what could be conceived as tacit support for whoever his Democratic challenger may be.

“I’m not planning on endorsing in the presidential race,” Romney said during an interview with CNN. “At this stage, I’m not planning on endorsing in the primary or in the general.”

“I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” the Utah Senator said after the release of the Mueller report, which demonstrated no evidence Trump colluded with Russians to effect the result of the 2016 presidential election.

Trump released a video on his Twitter earlier this week reminding the public that he is a winner and Romney is a loser:

Romney continues to embarrass his party and his country as a Never Trumper dancing to the beat of the fake news media and Democratic Party. His niece, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, must be ashamed of her bloodline in lieu of her uncle’s petty vendetta against the President.

Mad Maxine Says She Has Met Crips and Bloods ‘In The Hood’ with ‘More Integrity’ Than the President

She is off her rocker.

Published

on

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) made the stunning claim recently that she has met gangbangers from the inner city with “more integrity” than President Donald Trump.

The Congresswoman, who has been ridiculed by the President for having a low IQ, made the comment while appearing on Showtime’s “Desus & Mero.”

“I have worked in some of the toughest communities,” she said in a clip that was tweeted by the hosts Thursday. “I’ve worked with gangs. I’ve worked with Crips, I’ve worked with Bloods. And there’s more integrity in many of these young people in the ‘hood than this man has.”

She also claimed without providing any evidence that the “street player” Mr. Trump has “flirted with gangsters” throughout his history as a businessman and politician.

“This country cannot tolerate another four years of him,” she said.

The clip of Waters running her mouth about Trump can be seen here:

Waters has angered the populists within her party by suggesting that the big money should have more control over deciding who is the Democrat Party presidential nominee.

“You would have two, three, four at a time in Beverly Hills having dinners,” she said last week. “Some of our contributors who are very rich were holding, you know, fancy parties, trying to accommodate the request for donations and contributions. And so, you know, the conclusion, the thinking is that if we are supplying tremendous dollars to candidates, we ought to have more say.”

“A lot of people have come to the conclusion that it should not simply be Iowa and New Hampshire and certainly they are not reflective of the makeup of this country,” she added.

Previously, Waters has demanded that President Trump be incarcerated and subjected to cruel and unusual punishment because of Ukraine-gate and other “nothing burger” fake scandals.

“I’m calling on the GOP to stop Trump’s filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed,” Waters wrote in a tweet last year. “Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement.”

“But for now, impeachment is the imperative,” she added.

From her words, it is clear that Waters has a delusional view of herself and her partisan crusade to destroy President Trump.

“Most people who have watched me over the past two years know that I am a responsible person who has talked about the Constitution, who has talked about the fact that this President does not respect the fact that (Russian President Vladimir) Putin is responsible for basically bugging our electoral system, hacking into the DNC. They know that I’ve been serious about this. I’ve had the courage to stand up when nobody else would stand with me,” Waters said.

Few lawmakers embody the excesses of the Washington D.C. swamp than Waters, who has lingered in Congress for almost three decades.
