Mitt Romney Says He Has an ‘Open Mind’ about Working with Democrats During Senate Impeachment Trial

Romney the RINO is intent upon making things difficult for President Trump.

Published

on

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.

HUH? Matt Gaetz Helps Disgraced Globalist RINO Scott Turner Attempt Return to Congress

Gaetz’s association with this RINO is worrisome.

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has gained a reputation as a Congressman who embodies “America First” principles, but he will be fundraising for a disgraced RINO from Virginia who hopes to regain a Congressional seat he lost in 2018 due to his campaign’s corrupt actions.

Gaetz will be appearing with former Congressman Scott Taylor on Thursday in Newport News, Va. for a “meet and greet” at 2nd Street, an American Bistro. There is also a private roundtable event with Gaetz and Taylor that is available to those willing to pay an unlisted price for access to the duo.

Taylor lost his 2nd District Congressional seat to former Navy commander Elaine Luria, a Democrat, in the 2018 mid-term elections after only one term in office. Luria defeated Taylor by a 51 to 48 margin, as voters rejected Taylor following an embarrassing petitions scandal.

Taylor’s team was accused by Democrats of forging ballot signatures for a third-party candidate in a desperate attempt to split the vote. Judge Gregory Rupe ruled that the concerns of the lawsuit filed by Democrats were valid, and the independent candidate was thrown off of the ballot as a result. Taylor’s staffer would eventually be indicted for campaign fraud as a result of the actions taken for the campaign.

“Scott Taylor is a disgrace,” said Waverly Wood, Founder of the Virginia Freedom Caucus. “He’s an embarrassment to the party. This is exactly what you would expect from the RINO establishment.”

Big League Politics has reported on Taylor’s sad history as a RINO in Congress, supporting open borders and attending a Soros-funded globalist summit.

“This bottom feeding Washington group, NumbersUSA, is being completely disingenuous with this BS Ad. This is a group that raises money off people’s fears,” Taylor said of the anti-illegal immigration organization that pointed out his support for amnesty.

Taylor also spoke in favor of foreign aid to the Soros-funded Global Citizen summit in Sept. 2017.

“Good evening fellow Global Citizens,” he said. “It’s great to be here and an honor to represent Virginia.”

“Now is not the time to cut foreign aid,” Taylor said during his speech that lasted about a minute.

His appearance at the blatantly globalist event can be seen here:

The connections between Gaetz and Taylor go back several years, as the men have campaigned with each other and exchanged contributions between their respective campaign committees.

Open Secrets shows that the Friends Of Matt Gaetz committee donated $2,000 to Taylor’s campaign to help the disgraced RINO get his Congressional seat back. Records retrieved from FEC.gov also show that Scott Taylor for Congress gave Gaetz’s Congressional campaign $2,000 in Aug. 2018.

It is impossible to know Gaetz’s motives, as he did not respond to the request from Big League Politics to explain his associations with the RINO Taylor.
