In a a vocal split with their Republican colleagues, Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah and Joni Ernst of Iowa have openly called for an investigation into the recent allegation of rape against President Donald Trump raised by advice columnist and author E. Jean Carroll. Romney told CNN an "evaluation" needs to occur, although he is not sure who should perform it. The senator said he did not know if the proper setting for such an evaluation would be in the Congress or "whether it's another setting, I'm not sure."

I voted for Romney because I thought he was a better choice than Obama. Perhaps I was wrong about that. Correct vote would have been "neither of the above".

I think Romney is hoping that Trump did it and Ernst knows Trump didn't so they both want an investigation. That Carroll lady is a nutcase.

So, is Romney still going to be "fine" in the senate? Those of us who know Romney explained his motivation in running, which is to restore the liberal wing of his fathers Republican Party and destroy President Trump. We warned that Romney would provide crucial Republican support for dishonest leftist narratives, and that he would miss no opportunity to stab President Trump in the back. Yet some still supported Romney, despite all the evidence. So the questions become: Are his supporters surprised that Romney is doing all this, or are they pleased? And were they deceiving themselves in supporting him, or us?

The Sleaziest and greasiest member of congress weighs in with his own mental fantasies. Can't have a firm opinion, but he doesn't mind throwing out sleaze and fake concern into the public square. Does he not realize most of America thinks that woman is absolutely bonkers, especially after the comments she made to Anderson Cooper? Comments so bad they are trying to sweep them under the rug? Joni Ernst is kind of surprising, I guess she thinks women will fall for this on her say so. Ignore us at your peril Romney. Or the mockery could turn and land on YOU.

Since becoming a Freshman Senator from Utah, Romney has showed his true self to the Republican party by being an obnoxious anti-Trumper. While Joni Ernst, a meatless burger from Iowa has been sticking to President Trump for some time. She's up for reelection in 2020 and her chief benefactors, the Koch Brothers, will be pushing all her buttons. She's the worst kind of Senator there is in Washington. The Republican Party of Iowa should primary her with someone with more substance who is loyal to the President.

I read an article posted yesterday on this salon that said she has backtracked her story. Now she says Trump never touched her but looked at her funny. She previously said that "rape is sexy". She is also selling a book that belongs in the fantasy section of the bookstore. Carroll is also a few bricks shy of a load.

Beware Mitt is not doing this to prove this woman is a nut case. Mitt wants to keep this story alive and shame on Joni, he is using you because you are a women's voice. No need for an investigation because when E.J. stated "Rape Is Sexy" that is enough to throw her and her book in the dumpster and ignore her.

Mitt is running for President on the Uniparty (GOPe) ticket. Let's see now, we have this "rape" to chew on, Mueller testifying before two House committees, and the summer recess coming. This is all a prelude to bring us to the post-Labor Day campaign season which is when the Uniparty will unleash everything it can find or concoct to make Trump politically radioactive in order to stop his re-election campaign before it begins. The kitchen sinks will be flying at PDT, his family and business, political associates and allies...and anyone else who aligns with Trump until he is either mortally wounded politically (polls in the 30s), driven from the race (enter white knight Romney), or defeated in November. Folks cannot overestimate what the 2020 election is all about...starting with globalist/corporate corruption of the American way of life. (And keep an eye on Lindsey Graham...)

# 9, I for one cannot answer your questions. But we do know that when that Senate seat came open there was no one of any stature in the red state of Utah equipped or willing to seriously challenge Romney. He coasted from Day One. He is possibly of value to us in the matter of judicial confirmations, which are crucial. Maybe some of the border stuff as well (?) Beyond that we'll have to put up with him and trim his sails where we can. Blame Utah,.

To be clear, my comments were not directed at number #35, who is one of my favorite L-Dotters and a wise and honest advocate for views I almost always share. I was referring to the contingent on this site who pushed Romney because I believe they share his agenda: To destroy conservative insurgents and protect their GOPe. In previous elections, their alibi was that guys like Romney were a safe alternative who protect the Republican Party from electoral defeat. Then in 2016, Romney opposed the nominee of his own party and did everything in his power to elect the Democrat. So in 2018, their cover story became "Mitt Romney will be a safe pair of Republican hands in the US Senate." There is nothing safe about Mitt Romney. He is in the US Senate to stop President Trump and impeach him if possible. He is a vicious, dishonest hypocrite, whose true ambition is to prevent people like us from taking over his daddy's Republican Party. Worse, as a Republican, Romney's attacks do far more damage than a Democrat's. It is unlikely the Democrat would have defeated any Republican alternative in Utah. And there were alternatives: Romney's Republican primary opponent defeated him in the initial round of voting before the establishment circled the wagons. Romney was not an unforced error. He was an error forced upon us by a disingenuous establishment and people who believe they know what's best for us. It needs to be corrected.

A new bill would calculate potential costs of reparations — and by Yahoo Finance estimates, these could reach as high as $17.1 trillion. Last week, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the first hearing in a decade on H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. The bill was first introduced in 1989 by former Congressman John Conyers (D-MI). Conyers reintroduced the bill each year until his retirement in 2017 — and each year, the bill languished in Congress.

While many of his Republican colleagues have remained silent on the issue, or come out in support of the president, Romney claimed the accusation placed by Jean Carroll, who previously said “most people think of rape as being sexy,” is a “serious” allegation, according to CNN. “It’s a very serious allegation,” Romney said. “I hope that it is fully evaluated. The President said it didn’t happen and I certainly hope that’s the case.”

Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the Court’s opinion, portions of which were unanimous. “It is rare to review a record as extensive as the one before us when evaluating informal agency action — and it should be,” Roberts wrote. “But having done so for the sufficient reasons we have explained, we cannot ignore the disconnect between the decision made and the explanation given.
