Former Massachusetts Governor Senator Mitt Romney decided to vote “guilty” to one of Donald Trump’s impeachment charges. He clearly understood the consequences of his actions, because the president has shown what a cruel vindictive man he is. There has been serious fallout.
Conservative Political Action Conference Chair (CPAC) Matt Schlapp was interviewed on one of the Sunday morning political talk shows. He claimed that he would fear for the Utah senator’s “physical safety” should Romney attend the group’s annual Maryland convention.
American Conservative Union Chair Schlapp tweeted:
‘BREAKING: The “extreme conservative” and Junior Senator from the great state of Utah, @SenatorRomney is formally NOT invited to #CPAC2020.’
Religious GOP writer, The New York Times #1 best-selling author, and co-founder of the Lincoln Project Order “Running Against The Devil” Rick Wilson tweeted:
‘Closer and closer to saying the quiet part loud.’
The man who ran against President Barack Obama in 2012 was the lone Republican vote against the president in his impeachment trial. He voted “guilty” to Trump’s abuse of power. In a clearly emotional speech, Romney said it was his “oath to God” and his religious “duty” that made him stand against the president.
Schlapp tweet-notified Romney that he was “not invited” to CPAC via tweet. However, the senator never indicated that he was attending the conference.
CPAC’s chair appeared with Greta Van Susteren on Full Court Press this Sunday. He said that Romney might be able to appear at the conference, but as a “nonconservative” and at some point “in the future.”
Yet, he noted that it could be too dangerous for Romney now, according to Full Court Press:
‘We won’t credential him as a conservative. I suppose if he wants to come as a nonconservative and debate an issue with us, maybe in the future we would have him come. This year, I would actually be afraid for his physical safety because people hate him so much.’
The president and many Republicans have begun an attack campaign on Romney. Trump has pelted the senator with bizarre conspiracy theories. Plus, at least one Republican had said that Romney should be expelled from the Republicans’ caucus.
Schlapp declared the Washington political atmosphere “cancerous.” Then, he told the host:
‘We actually need political leaders that can help all of us get to a better place.’
Twitter world went off. Check out what they had to say about Romney’s situation below:
