    Politically, I almost always disagree with Romney. This was one of those rare exceptions, respect.

      @Jim Brown Project much? Political hacks never find common ground with those they disagree with. What was my OP? Do you understand the words you type? Or are you just a robotic parrot?

      @The Cold Dark 😝

    • @Hardcore Herbivore He voted not guilty, btw. Agreeing with his words is nice, but whats it add up to when he just does the opposite.

      @The Cold Dark Romney voted to convict numbskull. Delusional and paranoid? 😏 This could be fun…

    • @The Cold Dark you fucking moron! Where do you get your news from? He voted GUILTY loud and clear on Article 1, which relates to the corruption of our fucked up president, and no one ever disputed the facts of article 1, not even his lawyers, they only complained about the process

  2. A fair trial with witnesses, testimony and documents is the only way to settle this. If tRump is innocent he should not be afraid of the TRUTH.

  3. I’m glad to say I’m a Utahn who voted for Romney. As John Avlon said, a ‘Profile in Courage’

    American History will portray you as the kind of leader our founding fathers envisioned. Heads up my man.

    This seems like John McCain reincarnation🤔.

  6. I may not agree with Romney’s policies, but the man has earned my respect.

      @Bob Sullivan why don’t u tweet trump that

    • @Larry Nelson
      YOU KICK PUPPIES!

    • Bob Sullivan you realize there were 2 votes today. He voted guilty to abuse of power and not guilty to obstruction. If you want to report the story, report the whole story, not just the part that makes him bad to the propoganda machine.

    • @jaystonepk
      So….You are unhappy …. Where in Romneys sanctimonious speech did you hear him say he would vote Not Guilty on Article Two???
      Romney is buttering both sides of the slice…..And, as is typical, people like you are just fine with that.

    • Mike G Romney split his vote on the articles of impeachment: guilty on abuse of power and not guilty on obstruction of Congress.

  7. ” the truth is heavy only few men can carry it “

  8. Mitt Romney: I will tell the truth.

    Trump: I don’t know Mitt Romney never met the guy.

  9. A profile in courage. History will judge him well.

    • Precisely!! I emailed him an expression of gratitude and admiration for his courage. I urge all to do the same. He’ll need the moral support now that he’ll be surrounded by the den of cutthroats out for revenge. No doubt he will “go through some things” (to use the words of our totally innocent and poor victimized president).

      Not hardly!

    • Agreed

  10. I can just imagine the looks he was getting from some of his colleagues, especially the ones who agree with him and couldn’t summon the courage to vote against Trump.

    Wow! Romney has some integrity. It’s refreshing, yet sad that he’s just about the only Republican who does.

    • Sir Robin Not-so-brave | February 5, 2020 at 9:08 PM | Reply

      Integrity? U think he did this because of integrity? Here’s the real reason Romney did what he did. Read the article. Even Romneys former spokesman, Rick Gorka, said that Romney is motivated by bitterness. Do u also forget that Mitt was the CEO of Bain Capital? It was his firm’s deceitfulness that popularised the phrase “vulture capitalism” Integrity???????

    • Again because Mitt voted the other way he needs the respect and leave the drama out of it. Plain and simple. We all knew what was going to happen. But we weren’t sure which republicans were going to vote against Trump. If their votes were confidential without saying it aloud. That would have been a different story. No one wants to lose their job. Not even the POTUS.

      @Sir Robin Not-so-brave Didn’t know. Thanks for the info. I suppose in the midst of such cowardice, any push back seems to look more like integrity. Still, if 20 other republicans did the same, it would have been a more positive outcome.

    • Reavis Mitchell
      He just has hatred for President Trump! It won’t be long until you hate him again. Rock on President Trump. He will win in a landslide in 2020!

      @Mom25 Hopefully not. Trump’s total disregard for co-equal branches of government and the rule of law is disgusting. Not a good way to go. This is despotic and dictatorial behavior. He’s undoing the Constitution.

  12. This is inspiring and heart touching and admirable and he will go down as a hero in his footnote. I identify with dems but I felt truly inspired by Mitt Romney. God Bless You and thank you

  13. I’m proud to have you in my state, Mitt. I’m a democrat but I almost definitely will re-elect you! Your integrity is beyond party-lines.

  14. The spirit ofSen John McCain will be happy you.

    • Very well said Ryan. Either of them would have been excellent presidents that I would have been proud of. Well spoken and intelligent, the polar opposite of trump.

    • @Shifty McGee462 not partisan,but Patriot you elitist.Time for a change from Pierre Delec and his ilk.

    • MAYBE YOU SHOULD RESEARCH THE GREAT JOHN McCAIN . LOL

    • I commend Romney for his courageous speech, but as an atheist, I must opine that ethics and morality do not need to be exclusively faith based.

  15. “I wanted to hear from Bolton because I was hoping something would raise doubt to ease my mind.”

  16. Thank You Senator Romney, your conscience is clear.

    WOW!, to Sen. Mitt Romney lots of ” RESPECT ” thank you for putting country first.

  18. Ricardo Miyakawa | February 5, 2020 at 9:27 PM | Reply

    He earned my respect. Thank you for doing the right thing even though it will not help your political career. He just reminded me John McCain, I probably do not agree with many of his political ideas but I respect him

    Takes massive bravery to do this in your career, stand alone like this. You have my respect Mitt Romney.

  20. Well said Romney. I’m an independent and I thank you for doing what was right
