Romney To Join Democrats

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) expressed his willingness to vote for the dismissal of impeachment articles against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, provided that there is ample time for debate on the articles.

This development is significant as it could lead to a bipartisan vote to swiftly quash the impeachment articles, which have been in the works for years and represent a historic move by the GOP.

In his statement, Romney clarified that while he does not believe the impeachment meets a constitutional standard, he believes the Senate should allow for a reasonable debate, even if it’s limited to a two-hour timeframe.

He stated, “I don’t believe there’s a constitutional standard met. But at the same time, I think the Senate should give a chance for debate, even if it’s limited to two hours.”

Romney emphasized that he would oppose a motion to table the discussion without any debate but would be open to a provision that allows for a structured debate on the matter.

The House is set to transfer the articles of impeachment on Tuesday, marking the commencement of the formal process in the Senate. Senate Democrats are expected to vote to dismiss the articles swiftly on Wednesday.

The exact procedural details are still unclear and could play a crucial role in determining whether there will be bipartisan support for halting the impeachment effort.
