Mitt Romney Drops The Hammer On Trump During Fox News Interview: ‘He Should Be Removed From Office’

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) stood his ground on Wednesday, despite the foreseen outcome that Donald Trump would be acquited, and defended his decision to convict the president.

Speaking to Fox News host Chris Wallace, Romney gave his reasons behind his decision and why Trump should be removed from office.

“I believe the act that he took, an effort to corrupt an election, is as destructive on the oath of office as I can imagine,” Romney told Wallace. “It is a high crime and misdemeanor within the meaning of the Constitution and that is not a decision that I take lightly.”

The Utah Republican said he would not be able to live with his conscience if he voted otherwise.

“But I swore an oath before God and I’m a religious person,” Romney said, “that I would apply impartial justice and applying impartial justice said, what the president did was grievously wrong and I had to vote — if I was going to live with it on my conscience in way that was consistent with that oath of office.”

“I do believe he should be removed from office,” he added. “That’s the vote that I will take.”
