The Utah GOP is considering passing a resolution that would call on Senator Mitt Romney to immediately resign.
According to The Daily Caller:
The Utah Republican Party is reportedly considering multiple resolutions following Sen. Mitt Romney’s vote to convict President Donald Trump in the impeachment trial, including a resolution calling for his resignation.
According to local Salt Lake City news outlet 2KUTV, “the Utah Republican Party has pending resolutions on Romney: one that expresses support for Trump’s acquittal, another that supports legislation to recall a U.S Senator and a third that calls for Romney to ‘immediately resign’ from office.”
The Utah GOP will possibly vote on these resolutions on Saturday, February 29, the report also states. It is unclear what kind of support the resolutions have.
Romney was the single Republican who voted for Trump’s removal from office on the charge of abuse of power. He did not, however, vote for Trump’s conviction on the charge of obstruction of Congress.
Donald Trump Jr. even went as far as to call for Romney to be expelled from the Republican party.
