GOP senator says Romney ‘wants to appease the left by calling witnesses’ in impeachment trial
Republican Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler targeted her colleague GOP Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah on Monday over the issue of witnesses at the Senate impeachment trial.
In a tweet, Loeffler leveled an accusation at Romney, saying, “After 2 weeks, it’s clear that Democrats have no case for impeachment. Sadly, my colleague @SenatorRomney wants to appease the left by calling witnesses who will slander the @realDonaldTrump during their 15 minutes of fame. The circus is over. It’s time to move on!”
Not so long ago, Trump and the Republican Senators also came down hard on John McCain. Even after he died.
McCain and Romney were, of course, the previous two Republican presidential nominees. Assuming that Republican Senators are targeting only losers, they will skip George W. Bush and go straight for the prior Republican loser, Bob Dole.
Never mind that Bob Dole is 96, was a widely respected Senate Majority Leader, is a wounded World War II veteran and, as mentioned, was a Republican presidential nominee. Republicans seem to have no shame and don’t mind cannibalizing even their most distinguished former nominees for Trump’s sake.
Bob Dole, please watch your back.
It would appear from over here in Europe that American politicians are tearing themselves apart. I’m sure it wasn’t meant to be this way. Over here (UK), we’re just led by avaricious donkeys. What a world!!! They say that cometh the hour, cometh the man. The man (or woman!) is just a tad overdue. We need a return to common sense and polite behaviour. It isn’t too much to ask fo, I’m sure.
Thanks for the thoughtful and sincere comment. Life and history teach that “when cometh” is not clockwork. Joy cometh in the morning, but it can be a long and indeterminate night. The best way to hasten that coming is to model, inspire and educate. Honesty also helps.
