Romney, who voted to defraud Trump in his very first impeachment, mentioned Trump's attempt to convince Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to overthrow the nation's election outcome, in addition to his call for a march on the U.S. Capitol in a Jan.. 6 rally immediately beyond the violent riot.
"Well, we are going to have a trial. I wish that were not mandatory, however, the president's behavior with respect to this telephone to Secretary of State Raffensperger at Georgia in addition to the incitation to the insurrection that resulted in the assault on the Capitol call to get a trial," Romney said.
"Andyou know, if we are going to get unity in our nation, I think that it's important to understand the demand for responsibility, for justice and truth."
Romney said the House's post of impeachment"indicates impeachable behavior," but he confessed that he and his fellow senators have yet to listen to arguments from both sides.
"I think it's fairly apparent that over the past year or so there's been an attempt to corrupt the election from the USA," Romney said. "It wasn't by President Biden, it had been President Trump. ... That corruption we watched with respect to the behavior in Ukraine, in addition to the telephone Secretary of State Raffensperger, in addition to the incitation into insurrection. This is obviously quite serious and also an assault on the foundation of the democracy and is something that must be considered and solved."
Romney was crucial of Biden too. While the president has called for unity,'' Romney explained a few of his executive activities during the very first days of this government were divisive.
"I presume there are a few activities that the president is carrying that will result in a anger and branch," Romney said. "I think, for example, saying we are not likely to let additional rentals on government land for gas and oil, that clearly very badly harm our rural communities. Preventing the Keystone Pipeline, that places a great deal of individuals from work. Those individuals will be angry."
Romney said Biden ought to be cautious"not to do things that incite a lot of unnecessary anger"
