He gets an award from the President John Kennedy Library Foundation.
The John F. Kennedy Library Foundation announced Friday that the Utah Republican senator would receive the award for his vote in 2020 to convict Trump on an article of impeachment and his “consistent and courageous defense of democracy.”
“During a time of grave threat to U.S. democratic institutions, Mitt Romney has been a consistent but often solitary Republican voice in defense of democracy and the rule of law,” the foundation said in a news release Friday.
Mitt Romney has been a voice for opposition to the Make America Great Again Movement is what he has been. And in voting against President Trump in the impeachment circus, that makes him a traitor to the American people as well.
Of course, the mainstream media is not presenting him in this manner:
In 2020, after the House charged Trump with two articles of impeachment, Romney was the sole Republican to vote to convict Trump for abuse of power, becoming the first senator in US history to vote to remove from office a president from the same party. Romney voted with Republicans to acquit Trump of the second article of impeachment, obstruction of Congress.
At the conclusion of Trump’s second impeachment trial in February, Romney was one of seven GOP senators to vote to convict the then-President for incitement of an insurrection related to his actions during the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. Trump was acquitted by the Senate and found not guilty of all charges in both impeachment trials.
Romney’s votes were a notable break with his party, and at times, he has been a lone GOP voice in the Senate to speak out against Trump’s behavior while in office. During and after the 2020 election, Romney pushed back on Trump’s baseless claims that there was widespread fraud in the election, including mail-in voting, acknowledged Biden as the President-elect, and criticized Trump’s attempts to overturn the election results.
Naturally, this reflects the media reporting on the story, not what the American people saw in real-time on November 3, and since no election fraud evidence has been heard in a court of law other than maybe one state.
And Mitt Romney gets rewarded for his part in it.
