Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) just issued another reversal. His colleagues in Congress are stunned by his 180-degree turn — he has done it again.
“My decision regarding a Supreme Court nomination is not the result of a subjective test of ‘fairness’ which, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder,” said Romney, reversing his anti-Trump stance and sending liberals into a frenzy.
Democrats had hoped that Romney would oppose hearings for President Donald Trump’s forthcoming nominee to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but he has made the opposite decision — choosing instead to stand with the law.
“I intend to follow the Constitution and precedent in considering the president’s nominee,” Romney continued. “If the nominee reaches the Senate floor, I intend to vote based upon their qualifications.”
Democrats are now virtually powerless to stop what is coming. According to Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Republican lawmakers on his committee are ready to vote Trump’s nominee to the Senate floor.
