A post-departure Senate impeachment trial of a former President is unconstitutional. Just read the plain text of the constitution, which talks of a trial of the president, not a former president. None of the opinion to the contrary explains the absense of the word "former" (or similar) in the text of the constituational impeachment provisions.
Failed 2012 GOP presidential candidate, former Massachusetts governor, and current Senator from Utah, Mitt "Marches with Marxists" Romney is, arguably, the poster-child for much that ushered in President Trump's presidency.
The Senate's squishy middle contingent is shrinking. Rapidly.
Cocaine Mitch got to Sen. Romney who committed to considering a SCOTUS nominee and now Sen. Murkowski, who said last week that she wanted to stick to the "2016 precedent" has changed her tune, saying she "won't rule out" voting to confirm a Trump nominee to the SCOTUS before November's election.
Saturday, Senator Mitt Romney publicly criticized Trump's decision to fire a handful of Inspectors General via tweeted saying, "The firing of multiple Inspectors General is unprecedented; doing so without good cause chills the independence essential to their purpose. It is a threat to accountable democracy and a fissure in the constitutional balance of power.
Surprisingly, I'm not angry at Mitt Romney for his vote to convict Donald Trump for abuse of power and to remove him from office. I disagree with it, strongly, but anger isn't my emotion. "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me" is more my emotion. Disgust is more my emotion.
Romney has disappointed so many times, I'm numb to him.
I find it funny how everyone now loves Utah Sen. Mitt Romney because he has become one of the louder voices against President Donald Trump.
McKay Coppins wrote a loving profile of Romney in The Atlantic, which also included the senator groaning about Trump's use of Twitter.
Except...it seems like Romney enjoys Twitter more than he let on.
One of the first and most vocal #NeverTrump members of Congress, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) is now making headlines as "the first Republican" to call for President Trump's impeachment.
So far, there is no indication at all that he is "first," it seems more likely he is the "lone" Republican making such a call. Even Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) stated Sunday that the case for impeachment "just isn't there."
The long-awaited release of the Mueller reportrevealed, unequivocally, that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.
However, Mueller's decision to lay out the case against Trump with regard to obstruction, and doing so without pursuing indictments against him or anyone else in his circle, has had predictable results: the left is screaming for Trump's scalp, and the Trump White House and his supporters are declaring vindication.
