Video: Romney Cuddles Up To Pelosi On Impeachment
Failed Republican Presidential nominee and Republican rhino Senator Mitt Romney signaled that he is cuddling up to Pelosi to help impeach the President.
On Wednesday Romney appeared at “The Atlantics” annual ideas festival and commented on the President’s conversation as “troubling.”
Here’s the transcript:
MCKAY COPPINS: The White House just released the call summary between President Trump and the president of Ukraine. What was your reaction? You’ve read it, I assume.
SEN. MITT ROMNEY: I have. My reaction was the same as I had a view days ago, which is this remains deeply troubling and we’ll see where it leads. The first reaction is troubling.
COPPINS: In the summary that we saw, did that amount to a quid pro quo or the implication of a quid pro quo, in your view?
ROMNEY: I don’t know if I’d focus so much on the quid pro quo element as perhaps some do. I’ve said this in my first reaction, if the President of the United States asks or presses the leader of a foreign country to carry out an investigation of a political nature, that’s troubling. Clearly, if there were a quid pro quo that would take it to an entirely more extreme level.

This just follows the same narrative that House Democrat Adam Schiff started today after the transcript of the phone call was released. Since the phone call transcript showed that the President committed no crime Schiff during a press conference shifted the goal post; he floated the same narrative Romney used today. The new narrative is Trump is a “mafia boss and we need to be rid of him.” You can watch Schiff here, it appears Romney (who is a never Trumper) could be part of some collusion with the Democrats to weaken Republican resolve in the Senate.
Beware, now that the transcript proves there is no crime the Democrats are going to try to change the narrative to save their “credibility,” and start saying “well no crime was committed but Trump’s gotta go.” This whole thing is a joke and it looks like Romney is cuddling up to the Democrats.
