PATHETIC: Mike Lee Defends Mitt Romney After His Betrayal Vote on Witnesses in Impeachment Trial

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) is a pariah after flipping and joining Democrats to support witnesses during the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, and attempt to prolong the farce that has been lingered on for many years and damaged the Republic immeasurably.

While most Republicans are fighting mad at Romney, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) felt the need to defend Romney in a Twitter post shortly after he made his disgraceful vote.

“Mitt Romney is a good friend and an excellent Senator. We have disagreed about a lot in this trial. But he has my respect for the thoughtfulness, integrity, and guts he has shown throughout this process. Utah and the Senate are lucky to have him,” Lee wrote.

This may be a case of RINOs sticking together. After all, Lee has led the way to open the flood gates for mass immigration and drive the wages of American workers down with his so-called Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019.

Lee is working with communist Democrat Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on a bill that would potentially bring over millions of more left-wing voters to bury the Constitution for good.

Big League Politics has reported on Lee’s shameful betrayal of “America First” principles:

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), aided by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and his Big Tech funders, has been championing legislation that would open up the flood gates to third-world immigrants, primarily from India, to receive green cards and take jobs from American-born workers.

With Republicans neutered because their subservience to special interests such as the Koch network, the most likely opposition to the legislation’s passage comes from Democrats like Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), who believe S. 386 is unfair because it primarily benefits Indians while hurting other immigrants.

“They are increasing the immigration from countries like India a marginal small amount at the expense of cutting back on immigration from other countries in a much more dramatic fashion—I don’t think there’s equity in that,” Durbin told the Wall Street Journal earlier this month…

Some pro-Hispanic immigration groups even oppose the legislation because they feel it will hurt Hispanic businesses in order to help Big Tech drive their labor costs down.

“This is a cheap fix, not the right fix. This backlog is horrible but should be dealt with by enlarging quotas or exempting those deemed extraordinary or in the national interest, not by destroying immigration for the rest of the world,” said Tammy Fox-Isicoff, board member of American Immigration Lawyers Association.

“If it goes through, no one in Florida, except Indian nationals, will get residence through employment for the next decade or more. This will kill Florida, basically end all future Hispanic employment immigration to the U.S.,” she added.

While Lee feels the need to defend Romney after he has disgraced himself, other conservatives do not feel the same way. The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) even made it clear that Romney is persona non grata at their annual event later this month.

Unfortunately for Romney, his vote ended up being completely irrelevant. The Senate ultimately voted by a 51-49 margin to reject hearing witnesses during President Trump’s impeachment trial. Romney’s sour grapes accomplished nothing, except to make himself even more reviled by his own constituents.
