Congressman Louie Gohmert Takes A Big Shot At Mitt Romney With What He Wore On Hannity; This Is Awesome

(Tea Party PAC) – On Wednesday, Mitt Romney was the only Republican out of 250 to decide to vote against President Trump in the impeachment trial, and it seems this particular action might have a much greater cost than the Mormon senator realized at the time.

Yes, it seems in a bid to please the establishment within the Republican Party, Mitt may have destroyed his political career by going against the grain here. Perhaps he’s planning to make a defection to the Democratic Party? He has much more in common with them policy wise so it would make sense.

Regardless, he’s lost a ton of support, as is evidenced by what Rep. Louie Gohmert wore on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program Wednesday night.

Here’s more on that from Gateway Pundit:

Mitt Romney was 1 of 250.

Slick, Slippery Mitt.

Mitt Romney voted with Democrats on the first article of impeachment.

The vote was 48 guilty and 52 not guilty.

Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney became the first senator ever to vote against his own party’s president in an impeachment trial.

Tonight Rep. Louie Gohmert wore a “Quit Mitt” lapel pin during his appearance on Hannity.

Where to we get ours, Louie?

Apparently, Romney gave a note to all members of the GOP before the vote.

Here’s what it said via the Daily Wire:

After weeks of speculation about which senators might vote against the party line, the U.S. Senate voted on the Democrats’ two articles of impeachment against President Trump on Wednesday, and only of the 100 senators defected on one of the articles —frequent Trump critic Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) voted “guilty” on “Abuse of Power,” which ultimately failed 48-52. Ahead of the vote, the Utah senator delivered a hand-signed note to each of his Republican colleagues.

The note, obtained and published by Axios, was delivered to Republican senators’ individual boxes in the Senate cloakroom ahead of the vote Wednesday. In it, Romney defends the decision that he predicts will result in immense backlash against him, including from President Trump, insisting that his vote is “an act of conviction” stemming from the seriousness with which he takes his oath, “before God, to exercise ‘impartial justice.’”

“Does anyone seriously believe I would consent to these consequences other than from an inescapable conviction that my oath before God demanded it of me?” he asks.

“As a Senator-juror, I swore an oath, before God, to exercise ‘impartial justice,’” Romney’s hand-signed letter to his peers begins. “I am a profoundly religious person. I take an oath before God as enormously consequential. I knew from the outset that being tasked with judging the President, the leader of my own party, would be the most difficult decision I have ever faced. I was not wrong.”

“Corrupting an election to keep oneself in office is perhaps the most abusive and disruptive violation of one’s oath of office that I can imagine,” he continues.

“I am aware that there are people in my party and in my state who will strenuously disapprove of my decision, and in some quarters, I will be vehemently denounced,” he states. “I am sure to hear abuse from the President and his supporters. Does anyone seriously believe I would consent to these consequences other than from an inescapable conviction that my oath before God demanded it of me?”

“As it is with each senator, my vote is an act of conviction,” he concludes. “We have come to different conclusions, fellow senators, but I trust we have all followed the dictates of our conscience.”

The full text of Romney’s letter below:

As a Senator-juror, I swore an oath, before God, to exercise “impartial justice.” I am a profoundly religious person. I take an oath before God as enormously consequential. I knew from the outset that being tasked with judging the President, the leader of my own party, would be the most difficult decision I have ever faced. I was not wrong.

Corrupting an election to keep oneself in office is perhaps the most abusive and disruptive violation of one’s oath of office that I can imagine.

I am aware that there are people in my party and in my state who will strenuously disapprove of my decision, and in some quarters, I will be vehemently denounced. I am sure to hear abuse from the President and his supporters. Does anyone seriously believe I would consent to these consequences other than from an inescapable conviction that my oath before God demanded it of me?

As it is with each senator, my vote is an act of conviction. We have come to different conclusions, fellow senators, but I trust we have all followed the dictates of our conscience.

It seems a pretty safe bet to make that the vast majority of the GOP is going to side with Gohmert on this one. The only question at this point is where in the world the rest of us can pick up those buttons?

You can almost guarantee there is going to be a strong push to have Romney removed during his reelection. Hopefully he is replaced by someone with backbone and principles rather than a Democrat in Republican suits.
