While a vast majority of the Republican party is remaining loyal to President Trump during this most recent attempt by the Democrats to usurp him, there are a few cracks in the foundation…and one particular chasm is growing larger by the moment.
Mitt Romney, former nominee for President and current Utah Senator, hasn’t really ever been a big fan of President Trump. From the moment that the New York City business mogul stepped onto the political scene, Romney was critical and cautious.
Now, as Democrats continue with their “formal impeachment inquiry” into the President’s relationship with Ukraine, Romney seems to be downright disparaging when it comes to the Commander in Chief.
“When the only American citizen President Trump singles out for China’s investigation is his political opponent in the midst of the Democratic nomination process, it strains credulity to suggest that it is anything other than politically motivated,” Romney said in a statement, which he also tweeted out.
There were a few other notable Republicans who have begun to cast their doubts as well.
Sen.Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), in a statement on Thursday night, said “Americans don’t look to Chinese commies for the truth,” while also knocking House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for running a “partisan clown show in the House.”Retiring GOP Rep. Will Hurd (Texas) told CNN’s “New Day” that he thought Trump’s comments were “terrible.”
