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 folks note that he wants to be careful about prejudging impeachment bc he may be part of the process in Senate

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.
Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol
Guilt by association.
Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.
Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.
2/4 alleged that 40,000 protesters were in DC with the mindset to overturn a legitimate election and to kill the Speaker, the Vice President, and Members of Congress, in that instance, only 300 persons have now been arrested and are being prosecuted. What kind of justice is that?
— Sheila Jackson Lee (@JacksonLeeTX18) March 3, 2021
Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.
Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.
1/4 Testimony today on the Hill evidences that in the Portland protests, a thousand people were arrested. People protesting against the violence that was evidenced in the George Floyd murder. People wanting good things to happen. In Washington DC on January 6th, where it is
— Sheila Jackson Lee (@JacksonLeeTX18) March 3, 2021
Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.
Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
