"What a day for Maine Sen. Susan Collins, huh? Her colleague, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, just provided a master class in political principle, courage, and independence"
Have Democrats not learned yet that there is no such thing as a principled Republican? And particularly not the vampire Romney, who made his fortune (the part he didn't inherit, anyway) at Bain Capital, sucking profitable companies dry of all of their resources, and then leaving literally tens of thousands of workers without jobs?
Romney voted for one article of impeachment for exactly the same reason that Susan Collins voted for witnesses, and conscience or truth had nothing to do with it. He did it for the sole reason that Republicans didn't want the Democrats to be able to describe the craven vote to let Trump go free as a party line vote. It was easy to give up one absolutely unnecessary vote to deny the Democrats that claim in next year's election. Can anyone who follows politics not see that?
