President Trump has yet to publicly react to the announcement that Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) will vote to convict him for abuse of power, but his eldest son has already weighed in.
Romney knew a storm would come once he made it known he was joining Democrats on one impeachment article, and Donald Trump Jr. delivered. Trump suggested Romney's choice didn't come about because of his duty as a senator, but because he's still "bitter" that his past bids for the Oval Office failed. Romney's most recent actions, he said, signal that it's time he gets sent packing from the Republican Party, which the senator has been a part of for quite a long time.
It wasn't just the Trump family that was disappointed with Romney, though. His own niece, GOP Chair Ronna McDaniel, made it clear she's not siding with her uncle on this issue and assured everyone the party stands with the president. Tim O'Donnell
