Mitt Romney releases scathing statement denouncing Trump after reading Mueller Report
Former 2012 presidential candidate and current sitting U.S. Senator Mitt Romney is not remaining silent after reading the entire redacted Mueller Report, and is going out of his way to denounce President Trump and his administration.
The statement, which was posted to his official Twitter account reads:
"It is good news that there was insufficient evidence to charge the President of the United States with having conspired with a foreign adversary or with having obstructed justice. The alternative would have taken us through a wrenching process with the potential for constitutional crisis. The business of government can move on.
Even so, I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President. I am also appalled that, among other things, fellow citizens working a campaign for president welcomes help from Russia-including information that had been illegally obtained; that none of them acted to inform American law enforcement; and that the campaign chairman was actively promoting Russian interests in Ukraine.
Reading the report is a sobering revelation of how far we have strayed from the aspirations and principles of the founders."
While Trump continues to scream "no obstruction" and target Democrats and the media for the last two years of investigations, he forgets to point out all the dirty little details that Senator Romney just did a good job at summarizing.
And, again, this was only the redacted version. Large portions of the report are still blotted out in black ink, entire pages almost. No one knows what they say, other than of course Robert Mueller. He has been called to testify before Congress within the next month or so, so we may still find out more dirt on Trump and those surrounding him.
