Utah Sen. Mitt Romney (R) said Saturday that it is “very likely” he will be in favor of calling witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial against President Trump. However, the GOP lawmaker said he will hold off on making his final decision until after Democratic impeachment managers and the president’s defense lawyers conclude their opening arguments."I think it's very likely I'll be in favor of witnesses, but I haven't made a decision finally yet and I won't until the testimony is completed," the Utah Republican said Saturday after the first day of the Trump team’s opening arguments, CNN reported.

I proudly voted against Obama twice. But the pain I have to carry because of it is that in doing so I recorded a vote for McCain and Romney. The outcome of those two presidential elections was not destined to advance America in any way.

, ...says the only presidential candidate to lose an election to a moderator (Candy Crowley) in the most disgusting display of political cowardice I’ve ever seen. BTW, in deference to religious tolerance, I would say that what Mitt really needs Is a “come to Joseph“ meeting. He is our version of Hillary the loser.

There is a poster of Mitt's son, Pelosi's son, Kerry's son and Hunter Biden. All makes big money in Ukraine. As Rudy said last night on Judge Jeanine, "Biden was involved in bribes. Joe Biden is a crook and he sold out the United States of America." So that means that all of the parents of these four are dirty too.

The possibility of Romney running again for national office as a Republican is now nonexistent as most “Trump Supporters” who make up a big majority of Republican voters will never vote for him. So if the establishment Republicans were to nominate Romney as their Presidential nominee they would be effectively ceding the following general election to the leftist and liberal Democrats. Who knows if Romney could even get re-elected in Utah if the Republicans put up a competent primary challenger.

Willing to bet everyone in the Senate already knows how they are going to vote. The outcome is already known. There is no need for further testimony. There is no need for further witnesses. This is all a show for a coup, and Mitt is going along with it. Please Utah! Kick this creep to the curb! End it now!

Top Romney Adviser, Cofer Black, Worked With Hunter Biden On Board Of Ukrainian Energy Company.....look it up. But Pierre won't vote for witnesses IF he's a deciding vote....he's too chicken for that. And quit blaming "Utah." We voted two different men for the GOP primary THEN the Mormons changed the rules and added Mitt via a new way: a petition. Mitt merely got 7 more than the minimum of signatures to make the ballot in that way, he's so unpopular. BUT he was the GOP candidate so many GOP voted for him and he won. I voted for the Dem just because it was Mitt and he's a loser. Utah is a really weird place to live in terms of politics and power plays. If he votes for witnesses Mitt can look forward to assignments in the Senate such as cleaning the bathrooms and cloakrooms. He will never head a committee.

Typical Northeast Republican. For years he has won support from the voters who believed "At least he's better than a Democrat" So, is it really better? When issues of real importance come up and these RINO's are always on the other side? We are now engaged in a battle for the heart and soul of this Constitutional Republic. "Better than" is not good enough. If the Party cannot find the best candidates, then the rank and file must.

It's as if Trump were brought up on charges of bank robbery, and while he was in court being tried on that, the prosecution complained that Trump has an air-tight alibi proving he was elsewhere and proof that he was not involved, so the prosecution wants his tax records and some accountants brought into the trial so see if they can find some charges that will stick, and while they are at it, there is a homeless guy living out in the woods that swears he saw Trump hunting and fishing without a license and one of Trump's adversaries wants the judge to allow testimony that Trump was littering. The Senate is not the place where new articles of impeachment are hatched and new witnesses that were not listed in the original charges are brought forward. If the Democrats are ill-prepared to try their case, it is not the responsibility of the judge and jury to find new charges and new witnesses. The Democrats had their chance to call these witnesses and make it a part of their case and their charges. Instead, they examined all evidence in secret. As far as I know, Trump's lawyers still do not have access to the testimony of the Democrat hearsay / gossip witnesses.

Mitt you just go ahead and cross the aisle to be like John McCain. The Senate is not the place to extend the democrat's impeachment proceeding they had their chance in the House but played footsie in their star chamber now it's too late. It's all but over moving ahead presenting witnesses is just giving this sham witch hunt legitimacy and you, Mitt, would be part of it. Shut up Mr. Brylcream (that's a men's hair cream) and sit down. I could chew my right hand off like a coyote in a trap for pulling the lever for you in the election that you lost to a low IQ idiot like Obama.

Romney suffers from President envy. He grew up with advantages and privileges, being the son of the governor of Michigan. Perfect, life, perfect wife, perfect family, perfect Bryl Cream hair, everything perfect, perfect, perfect. After he lost in 2012 he decided to run for Senator in Utah a very Republican state. His ticket back into the game.He knew his being Mormon would be an advantage there. So he packed up his MA home and moved to a Park City Utah ski chalet to make it his permanent residence. He could care less about Utahans. He and he wife wanted to join the ruling class in Washington DC as the new Senator, former GOP Presidential nominee and new resident Senator from Utah. My guess is, it kills him to think President Trump won the state of Michigan in 2016. A state that he, the former governor's son could not do in 2012. His demeanor reeks with envy and jealousy that President Trump won so well in 2016 and will win reelection in 2020.

If Romney was not convinced of the truth of what has been going on under his very nose for three years, then he is beyond redemption. He is a fraud, a liar, and has no principles to guide him other than sleaze and whatever is good for him personally. He proves the Founders were right. Religion has no place in our government, it needs to stay separate from government. The state of Utah should hang their heads in shame for continuing to support such evil and sleaze as Romney. Anyone still willing to entertain the railroading of an innocent man, simply based on hurt feelings of Nancy Pelosi is not worthy of being in our congress.

Pierre, I have never contributed to a political campaign in another state outside the one in which I was living. So help me, if you vote for witnesses, or against POTUS Trump in any way, though my contribution might be relatively small, I WILL CONTRIBUTE to your Republican opponent in a primary and will encourage my friends and family to do the same. You could have won the presidency in 2012, but you refused to campaign as though you actually intended to win. Thus you did not. You could have handed that know-nothing witch from CNN, Candy Crowley, her head when she "fact-checked" you with a lie, but you simply wussed-out and that was the moment you lost the election.

#8. There is one online "fact finder" who writes that he has investigated the sons of Romney, and no connection could be found to Ukraine. One son of Theresa Heinz is reported to have been in an equity firm with Hunter Biden, but left that firm before Biden went with Burisma, and the souce claims that the Heinz son recommended against the Burisma job. The source also says that Pelosi's kids have no connection. I'd like to see some validation of this claim before I just buy it. Solomon has all sorts of solid proof of Hunter Biden's connection, that is certain. Why no evidence of the others?

All that ended on January 22, 2016, when the magazine posted online its "Against Trump" issue. Once again, the editors proudly chose to stand athwart history rather than make it.

The nondelegation doctrine, unlike most legal concepts, is less boring than it sounds. After the 1930s, it became constitutional esoterica, a relic of a bygone age in which the Supreme Court resisted efforts by Americans to regulate their own economic affairs. But it has the potential to overthrow most of the federal government if wielded in a certain way, and the Roberts court could soon give it startling new relevance.

It is an old rule of journalism that it is better to get it right than to get it first. But after seeing how reporters reacted Sunday to news of retired NBA star Kobe Bryant's death, you could be forgiven for thinking that such a rule no longer exists, if it ever existed at all. The former Los Angeles Laker was among nine people killed Sunday morning in a helicopter crash in Southern California. The other victims include Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna, one of her teammates on her basketball team, the teammate’s parent, and the pilot. Those are the facts.

Fox News cut away from President Donald Trump’s defense in his Senate impeachment trial several times on Monday in favor of panel discussions or interviews rather than the live feed of the proceedings.Fox spent much of the 5 p.m. EST program hour with its popular panel discussions show, The Five. Later, it cut away during The Story with Martha McCallum for interviews with former Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Ranking Member on the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), among others. Video footage of President Trump’s legal team making their arguments continued to play, but the audio was muted. Other, competing cable news networks

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi fired off a warning shot to Republican senators on Sunday: allow witnesses in the impeachment trial or “pay a price.” “It’s about a fair trial. They take an oath to have a fair trial. We think that would include witnesses and documentation. The ball is now in their court, so either do that or pay a price,” warned Pelosi. How is this ‘threat’ different from what President Trump said about Adam Schiff? Leftie hypocrites, unite! WATCH: [video] Last week Republican senators blocked nine amendments from Democrats requesting witnesses and documentation. Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) on Saturday drafted motions to subpoena impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff,

PARK CITY, Utah — Since losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has released a memoir about that defeat, launched a political action committee and penned another book about “gutsy women” with her daughter, Chelsea. But Clinton’s most prominent return to the public eye has come at the Sundance Film Festival, where the former Secretary of State unveiled a candid four-hour documentary series, “Hillary.” Clinton is aware that some thought she would slink away after 2016. “Yes, they did, didn’t they?” Clinton said in an interview in Park City. “Well, that was never an option.” Nanette Burstein’s “Hillary,” which Hulu

On January 27, 1945, the Red Army took control of Auschwitz away from the Nazis, where more than one million Jewish victims were liquidated that comprised roughly 1/6 of all the murders committed during the Holocaust. Unlike the Operation Reinhard death camps of Treblinka, Sobibor, Belzec, Majdankek, and Chelmo, which saw almost two million murders combined, Auschwitz functioned as both a concentration and a death camp. After the Operation Reinhard death camps had largely exterminated Polish Jewry by 1943, and since they had started to become a liability with the war effort swinging in favor of the Red Army, Auschwitz, located farther to the west, began killing more

Berkeley—Just after 8 on a warm evening in September, Janae Bell was shooting the breeze with two friends at the Hearst Avenue railroad crossing, sharing some pastries and talking bikes. Over the clanging bells of a Union Pacific freight train rumbling past on the opposite track, they didn’t hear the Amtrak barreling toward them. With seconds to spare, Bell, 41, looked up, screamed “Train!” and dove off the tracks. But when he turned to look for his friends, he said, “They were gone.”(Snip) California’s railroad tracks are now lined with men and women sleeping in tents or under cardboard boxes,

The helicopter that crashed yesterday in Calabasas, California, was operating under “Special Visual Flight Rules,” according to an air traffic control audio conversation with the pilot, captured by website LiveATC.net. What that means: A SVFR, Special Visual Flight Rules, clearance is given to pilots to allow them to fly in weather conditions worse than those allowed for standard Visual Flight Rules (VFR). The Burbank Airport control tower allowed the helicopter to proceed northeast following the I-5 highway using the SVFR clearance. “Maintain special VFR at or below 2,500” the pilot confirmed to the controller. Later in the flight, the pilot apparently asked for “flight following,” a service where controllers

Columbia University continues to deny students accused of sexual assault their due process rights, going out of their way to ignore exculpatory evidence in order to find accused men responsible no matter how thin the allegations. The latest example is Ben Feibleman, who is using his real name to fight the allegations against him, made by a woman who, as usual, gets to keep her anonymity and is only referred to as Jane Doe in court documents. The Daily Caller’s Betsy Rothstein recently published an exclusive interview with Feibleman regarding the $25 million lawsuit he filed against the university last May.
