McConnell and Romney Fighting for Influence Over Trump’s Trial

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is fighting with failed presidential candidate and current Senator Mitt Romney over whether or not to have witnesses in President Trump’s Senate trial.

Mitt wants them and McConnell doesn’t and it appears McConnell is winning.

According to The Hill:

The fight over calling additional witnesses at President Trump‘s impeachment trial has turned into a struggle for influence between Mitch McConnell and Mitt Romney.

The two Republican leaders — one the Senate majority leader, the other the GOP’s 2012 nominee for president — have two very different agendas.

McConnell has staked his reelection to a seventh term on helping Trump implement his agenda and has made clear that he is closely coordinating trial strategy with the White House.

Romney doesn’t have the immediate pressure of reelection and has told allies that he’s more interested in the role of elder statesman than climbing the Senate’s power ladder.

McConnell has announced that he believes he has the votes to block witnesses meaning he has convinced enough GOP senators that witnesses would be a mistake.

I just cant believe that I actually used to like Romney. He is just addicted to have his face planted on the TV screens. What a Moron. He is definitely a swamp creature and hate Donald Trump. Yikes. He definitely doesnt like us Americans.

Democrats are Anti Semitic and Fascistic…
The Democrat party and its members have loss all honor and respect for themselves and America.
The Democrats & leftists are going after our weakest supporters! Precisely, how the Nazi’s started and succeeded, simply by imprisoning and murdering the disabled and mentally ill.
If you don’t stop them immediately with extreme prejudice. They will win just as the Nazis did. Leading to a Nazi style Government. (Nazi’s were leftist’s they came from National Socialist German Workers’ Party)
Do the Democrats want to start opening concentration camps again?

650-631-9270 See the book “A Man Called Intrepid”, Intrepid fought the same battle with the left during, World War Two, that we are fighting today. The Democrats were Nazi supporters?

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
“Niemöller”
The UN….
First they came after Israel, and I did not speak out.
Then they came after America….
democrats are working with and for the Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist controlling group. Why are you not using Citizen Arrest on them to put them all in prison…?

Awesome Trump 2020 campaign video! Great job campaign team! 🙂

Suggestions for 45s 2020 Platform

Please:
1. Call for laws that enable nationwide school choice. It’s good for kids.
2. Protect the Second Amendment. It SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.
3. Enable nationwide healthcare insurance that allows private companies to offer healthcare across state lines with no preexisting conditions. More healthcare choices will encourage companies to offer better coverage at better prices. Competition is good for THE PEOPLE.
4. Call for laws that enable nationwide CCW Reciprocity. Patriots help protect THE PEOPLE.
5. Help pass the Middle East Peace Treaty between Israel, the Palestinians, et al.
6. Please DON’T pass the Red Flag laws. They are subjective and can be used to hurt THE PEOPLE.
7. Call for laws to be passed that limit senators and representatives to two terms. This would help to decrease corruption which would be good for THE PEOPLE.
8. Arrest high profile criminals so THE PEOPLE can see there’s “EQUAL JUSTICE FOR ALL” again in America. The best defense is a strong offense. Please investigate and arrest criminal politicians when you have proof of their wrongdoing. It’s FRIGHTENING that many criminals are running America and hurting THE PEOPLE.
9. Create a plan that addresses how to pay down the national debt. Sadly, some irresponsible, and possibly corrupt, politicians have allowed it to get out of control. And as you know, debt HURTS THE PEOPLE, and compromises the country.
10. Call for a law to end birthright citizenship. It sadly rewards and encourages ILLEGAL immigration.
11. Please arrest and deport ALL criminal illegal aliens nationwide.
12. Check out Dearborn, Michigan, sadly, why are there “no go zones” in Dearborn? What can be done to restore law and order there and across the nation?
13. Please stop the Federal Reserve’s “Directo a Mexico” remittance program.

14. Please stop ALL voter fraud nationwide.
15. Please tell your DOJ to release documents requested by Judicial Watch.
16. For the SAFETY of THE PEOPLE, there needs to be an overhaul of the vaccine situation. The contents of vaccines need to be tested for contaminants and each batch spot-tested for safety and quality. The contents of vaccines should be easily accessible public information.
Vaccine timelines need to be extended. Children do better if less vaccines are given at one time, and are stretched over a a greater period of time. Also, toward “liberty and justice for all,” please consider allowing religious and medical exemptions to vaccines. To point, how are the unvaccinated a threat to the vaccinated?

17. Finish building the southern border wall and then build the northern border wall.
Since funding the border wall is sadly difficult due to sad non-Patriots, why not create a path for Patriots to fund the wall? Example: In the late 1970s and early 1980s private American citizens sent in money to retrofit the Statue of Liberty. ( See above poster. )
Perhaps a “Protect the Patriots Project” can be created to fund the wall? I would donate to that cause and I believe many other Patriots would too. 🙂 It is also helpful the legal precedent for this action has already been set.
18. Since the Bible indicates the US will not be part of the One World Order, I know you will soon decide to remove the UN Headquarters from US soil. Perhaps in the meantime, an appropriate exit strategy should be created and tabled until needed.

Thank you, Sir, for making a positive difference! May God continue to bless you as you seek His direction.

Best Regards,
Jennifer Pacheco

Where does this site get that romney the RINO is some kind of republican ‘leader’, he is not only NOT a leader, but he is closer to the deep state than he is to any republican cause, this America hater would sink America if he had his way, he is a very bitter loser and a class ‘A’ Trump hater !!!

To Gov. Romney, it is not the role of the Senate to do the HR job. They failed to do their role according to Constitutional directives BUT it is not for the Senate correct for that. Vote no, Mitt, on witnesses and documents. There is no credible basis that warrants them.

Mitt Romney who lost his bid for POTUS due to his own poor judgement shoild,have bowed oit of politics gracefully but evidently the guy has an ego bigger than his brain . . . BY now the people of UT have had their fill of this windbag and will,send him packing when he is up,for,reelection!!!

He is also dishonest . . . As an apparent Democrat he decided to pose as a Republican . . .
More proof of his inworthiness!!!

Too bad his family has to live through his antics and share in his disgraceful behavior!!!

I don’t think it’s a mistake to call witnesses because it’s like Jim Jordon (and Frank Sinatra) said. – It’s all or nothing at all – They want Bolten who can testify that as head of the executive branch the President was doing his duty as required by the constitution. End of story,,, but then we start with Joe Bieden and then his snot nose,,,,and then move on to the cackling witch and for the finally the royal exalted boma. Oh,,,and let;s not forget Mr Schitt and his whistleblower. Put then all in the hot seat under oath and have the shiesters do their best to trip them up.

Get caught in a lie and make the can for perjury. Tell the truth and get indicted . Wouldn’t it be great watching the Hill-rat looking like a 60s gangster pleading the 5th. and watching the half honky squirm would be have better ratings then the stupid bowl. And hey, I don’t think Joe Bieden pleading the 5th will do his campaign much good either.

It’s a no loose and either way it’s going to be more MAGA with PRESIDENT Trump in just 9 months and days.

He Mitt,
How about you become an “elder Statesman” by retiring…today. No one wants you in the Senate, no one cares about what you think or do except when you act like the RINO you seem to be. Then they care.
You lost because of Rino status, nothing less, nothing more. The problem with Rinos is that they have NO integrity at all.

Romney IS the power ladder. He is just as much of a corrupt establishment stooge as the democrats are. He is still butt hurt that he lost his attempt at becoming President, but Trump won his, and has done more already that the fake Republican Romney has accomplished his entire career.

I agree. Utah should recall Romney. He is in love with himself. The only reason he was voted in was to keep the Senate.

Romney the globalist, deep state adoring hack is JEALOUS of Trump whom he considers beneath him. The fact that the American people REJECTED Romney & voted in Trump enrages him just as it did his buddy & fellow lowlife P O S McCain.

We learn today that Chuck Shumer In a backroom deal with Mitch McConnell decided that the acquittal vote would not come until Wednesday. How’s that for setting the stage. What was McConnell thinking?
So the outraged Dems go from acquittal vote on February 3rd and show their outrage the next day BY WALKING OUT OF THE STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS to protest Donald Trumps acquittal and presidency. A walkout from the SOTU address to embarrass Trump. That is why Pelosi delayed sending the impeachment forward – this was the plan all along..
