CPAC chair says Romney was uninvited because 'physical safety' would be at risk
11 Feb 2020 — #Swamp
The organizer of the Conservative Political Action Conference defended his decision to uninvite Sen. Mitt Romney — saying the Utah Republican’s vote for more witnesses and documents in President Trump’s impeachment trial would make him unsafe at the event.
“This year, I’d actually be afraid for his physical safety, people are so mad at him,” American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp said in an interview Saturday on “Full Court Press” with Greta Van Susteren.
“The biggest problem we have with Mitt Romney is not that he’s just an individual following his political course. It’s the fact that he’s lied so continuously to conservatives.”
Suffice it to say Romney's conviction vote is not playing well back home. https://t.co/RgsCBwfNmN— Josh Hammer (@josh_hammer) February 11, 2020
Shouldn’t Mitt Romney have recused himself from the impeachment vote? One of his top advisers and campaign directors was also on the board of the corrupt Burisma serving with Hunter Biden. Romney should have at least disclosed that. https://t.co/PJ9EDS0s3h #Romney— MARK SIMONE (@MarkSimoneNY) February 11, 2020
