CPAC Disinvites Mitt Romney After He Votes For New Witnesses In Trump Impeachment Trial

By PoliZette Staff | February 1, 2020

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who was the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, got some bad news on Friday when he was officially disinvited from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, took to Twitter on Friday to say that Romney had been disinviting from the conservative event.

CPAC cut all ties with Romney after the senator voted to allow new witnesses in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, according to The Blaze. Romney and Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) were the only two Republicans  to join Democrats in voting for more witnesses and evidence. Prior to the vote, a spokesman for Romney said that the senator “has said, he wants to hear from Ambassador Bolton, and he will vote in favor of the motion today to consider witnesses.”

Unfortunately for Romney, Democrats needed four Republicans to join them in this vote, so it’s likely that the impeachment trial will come to an end on Wednesday.

As Romney faced backlash on social media for his actions, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) defended him on Twitter.

“Mitt Romney is a good friend and an excellent Senator. We have disagreed about a lot in this trial. But he has my respect for the thoughtfulness, integrity, and guts he has shown throughout this process,” Lee said. “Utah and the Senate are lucky to have him.”

It’s unfortunate that Romney has turned into a Never Trumper who would rather see our country fail than see Trump succeed. If he is going to take such drastic action against the Republican president, he should not be surprised if more conservative groups cut ties with him going forward.
