On Tuesday, Senator Mitt Romney was confronted by a group of Trump supporters in an airport terminal as they were on their way to the “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington D.C.
Before the boarding process, one woman confronted Romney to have a little chat with him about his total betrayal of President Trump. Romney started to lose it as he whined about the woman not wearing a mask.
“Don’t tell me what to do,” she shot back at Romney.
“Please put your mask on, you’re required by law to put your mask on in this airport,” Romney said as the woman hammered him, noting she was 6 feet from him.
“Ok, I am going to go ahead and do it because I want to have a chat with you,” she said. “Why aren’t you supporting President Trump?”
Romney went on to claim that he does support President Trump’s agenda for the most part which appears to be a blatant lie.
“You didn’t even support him in the election,” the woman correctly pointed out.
“No, I did not,” Romney said in shame.
“Why not?” the woman asked.
“For reasons I explained at the time,” Romney said.
The woman continued by reminded Romney that he was elected by conservatives so he should serve the people who elected him.
“Actually, that’s not how the constitution works,” Romney said.
Romney was also trashed by the Trump supporters when he boarded the flight. “TRAITOR, TRAITOR, TRAITOR,” yelled the entire flight of Trump supporters as Romney boarded the plane.
“We want to know your connection to Burisma and Joe Biden, Mitt Romney,” one woman yelled. “You don’t listen to your constituents!”
Romney has made it extremely clear that he would be siding with Democrats for the electoral vote on January 6th.
“The egregious ploy to reject electors may enhance the political ambition of some, but dangerously threatens our Democratic Republic. The congressional power to reject electors is reserved for the most extreme and unusual circumstances. These are far from it,” Romney said in a statement.
Other Republican senators however are vowing to take a stand. On Saturday, it was revealed that a group of GOP Senators were planning on challenging the Electoral College Certification on January 6th.
The effort is reportedly led by Republican Senator Ted Cruz who is demanding an emergency 10-day audit of the 2020 election results.
Cruz, along with the other senators, are claiming that the November 3rd election “featured unprecedented allegations of voter fraud and illegal conduct.”
Check out what Fox News reported:
Joining Cruz are Sens. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.; James Lankford, R-Okla.; Steve Daines, R-Mont.; John Kennedy, R-La.; Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and Mike Braun, R-Ind.; as well as Sens.-elect Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo.; Roger Marshall, R-Kansas; Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn., and Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala.
Their effort is separate from one announced by Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., who said this week that he will object to what he claims was the failure of some states — most notably Pennsylvania — to follow their own election laws.
“Voter fraud has posed a persistent challenge in our elections, although its breadth and scope are disputed,” the lawmakers said on Saturday. “By any measure, the allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election exceed any in our lifetimes.”
A source familiar with the effort by the GOP senators told Fox News that it was Cruz who orchestrated the push just days before the joint session of Congress on Wednesday to officially approve the Electoral College votes electing former Vice President Joe Biden.
The lawmakers say there is a precedent of Democrats objecting to election results in 1969, 2001, 2005 and 2019. “And, in both 1969 and 2005, a Democratic Senator joined with a Democratic House Member in forcing votes in both houses on whether to accept the presidential electors being challenged,” they said.
The senators and senators-elect are calling for Congress to appoint a commission to conduct a 10-day emergency audit of the election returns in states where the results are disputed. They cite as precedent the 1877 race between Samuel Tilden and Rutherford Hayes in which there were allegations of fraud in multiple states.
“In 1877, Congress did not ignore those allegations, nor did the media simply dismiss those raising them as radicals trying to undermine democracy,” the lawmakers said. “Instead, Congress appointed an Electoral Commission — consisting of five Senators, five House Members, and five Supreme Court Justices — to consider and resolve the disputed returns.”
“We should follow that precedent. To wit, Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states,” they added. “Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed.”
If demands aren’t met, the senators will be voting against the certification.
“Accordingly, we intend to vote on January 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified’ (the statutory requisite), unless and until that emergency 10-day audit is completed,” they continued.
“These are matters worthy of the Congress, and entrusted to us to defend. We do not take this action lightly. We are acting not to thwart the democratic process, but rather to protect it,” they said. “And every one of us should act together to ensure that the election was lawfully conducted under the Constitution and to do everything we can to restore faith in our Democracy.”
