Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) claims he has an “open mind” about joining Democrats to call witnesses during the Senate impeachment trial against President Donald Trump that starts tomorrow.
“Deciding whether or not a sitting president should be removed from office is perhaps the most solemn matter that can ever come before the United States Senate. I enter this task with an open mind and a recognition of my solemn responsibility to fulfill my oath,” Romney said in a grandstanding statement to his constituents.
While Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wants to quickly end the impeachment farce to focus on actual problems that matter to the American public, Romney wants the grueling process to linger on. He claims that the Democrat-led witch hunt against the President is “extremely serious.”
“These allegations demand that the Senate put political biases aside, and make good faith efforts to listen to arguments from both sides and thoroughly review facts and evidence,” Romney said.
Romney wants the decision regarding whether or not witnesses will be called during the trial to be held off until after opening arguments are made, perhaps hoping for details to emerge that will give him political cover to work with the Democrats.
“If attempts are made to vote on witnesses prior to opening arguments, I would oppose those efforts,” Romney said.
“There is inevitable political pressure from all sides. I have spent — and will continue to spend — many hours in careful deliberation about what this process and its potential outcomes could mean for our country. The best we in the Senate can do is strive to meet the obligations outlined by our founding fathers,” he said.
Romney has previously stated that he wants to hear from former national security adviser John Bolton, who President Trump has criticized publicly for his incompetence since he departed from the administration.
“I would like to be able to hear from John Bolton. What the process is to make that happen, I don’t have an answer for you,” Romney said to fake news reporters.
Bolton has expressed his willingness to provide testimony against President Trump. The Ukraine-gate situation sprung up immediately after Bolton left the administration, and that timing may not be a coincidence. Never Trumpers are putting together a well-funded ad campaign to cajole Republican Senators into supporting Bolton’s testimony.
“The House has concluded its Constitutional responsibility by adopting Articles of Impeachment related to the Ukraine matter. It now falls to the Senate to fulfill its Constitutional obligation to try impeachments, and it does not appear possible that a final judicial resolution of the still-unanswered Constitutional questions can be obtained before the Senate acts,” Bolton said in a statement.
“Accordingly, since my testimony is once again at issue, I have had to resolve the serious competing issues as best I could, based on careful consideration and study. I have concluded that, if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony, I am prepared to testify,” he added.
While many supporters are taking it for granted that President Trump will be exonerated by the GOP-dominated Senate, that may not be the case. The Never Trumpers, led by Romney, will be plotting to sabotage the President throughout the impeachment trial.
Louie Gohmert Blames Mask Usage for COVID-19 Diagnosis, Plans to Take Hydroxychloroquine to Treat Virus
The mask may have caused him to catch the Chinavirus.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, which the fake news media has attributed to his lack of using a face mask.
However, Gohmert says he tested positive for the disease after complying with mask mandates more than ever. He feels the mask usage did not protect him from getting the virus and may have even contributed to it.
He told reporters that it is “ironic” that he would catch COVID-19 now “because a lot of people have made a big deal out of my not wearing a mask a whole lot, but in the last week or two I have worn a mask more than I have in the whole last four months.”
“I can’t help but wonder if by keeping a mask on and keeping it in place, if I might have put some germs, some of the virus on the mask and breathed it in,” Gohmert said.
Democrats are chiding Gohmert because he has talked against lockdown policies, mask mandates, and more overreach implemented because of COVID-19 mass hysteria.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that she is “sorry for my members, who are concerned because he has been showing up at meetings without a mask and making a thing of it.”
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) added that he is “concerned about the irresponsible behavior of many of the Republicans who have chosen to consistently flout well-established public health guidance perhaps out of fealty to their boss, Donald Trump, who is the head of the anti-mask movement in America.”
Big League Politics has reported on how the mass hysteria has caused Americans to turn on their heritage of freedom and liberty to support forcible unconstitutional mandates:
A new poll from Morning Consult/Politico reveals that a solid majority of Americans support a mask mandate that would implement fines of jail time for those that refuse to wear masks in public places.
The asks registered voters if they’d support a mandated implemented by their state government. 72% of of responding registered voters stated that they’d “strongly” or “somewhat” support a state-implemented mask mandate that is punishable by jail time or fines.
The poll asked the following question.
“Based on what you know about the COVID-19 pandemic (coronavirus), would you support or oppose your state instituting a face mask mandate in public spaces, where not wearing a mask could be punishable by fine or jail time?”
Curiously, Baby Boomers, one of America’s most conservative voting demographics, support a mask mandate most strenuously. 78% of Boomers support the mask mandate. Millennials (68%) and Generation Z (63%) support it the least, although wide majorities still do.
Democrats support the mask mandate in almost unanimous fashion, with 86% of them supporting it. A solid majority of Republicans support mandatory masks as well, with a majority of 58%.
There simply is widespread public support for wearing a mask and taking limited measures to deter the spread of coronavirus in the United States. Republicans and conservatives risk alienating such popular sentiment at their own electoral peril.
Gohmert plans to take hydroxychloroquine in order to treat COVID-19 and fend off potential symptoms.
“My doctor and I are all in, and I got a text just before I came on from a dear friend, [a] doctor, who just found out he had it, and he said he started a HCQ [hydroxychloroquine] regimen, too,” Gohmert said while appearing on Fox News.
“I got a tiny little taste of what you and the president get every day,” Gohmert said to host Sean Hannity, “The left went nuts.”
Gohmert hopes to be among the 99.7 percent of coronavirus sufferers who recover from the disease.
