Romney Announces Support for Jan. 6 Commission

The first Republican senator has announced support for current legislation to establish a bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6th Capitol riot. On Monday, Utah Senator Mitt Romney said he plans to vote yes to the bill.

The Hill reports:

Asked how he would vote if Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) tried to start debate on the House bill, a move that requires 60 votes to defeat a filibuster, Romney told reporters, “I would support the bill.”

Romney wasn’t asked how he would vote on final passage of the House bill, which would need only a simple majority. Spokespeople for Romney didn’t immediately respond to a question about if he would change his vote after helping defeat a GOP filibuster.

But Romney’s comments come as Schumer has vowed that he will bring the bill up for a vote, setting up what could be the first successful filibuster of the 117th Congress.

Schumer hasn’t said when he’ll bring up the House bill but characterized the timing on Monday as “very soon.”

So far a number of Republican senators including Mitch McConnell have announced they oppose the bill in its current form. Republicans want to widen the scope of the investigation to include political violence from last summer’s riot which plagued American cities.

Wonder if he had the backing of the church when he got elected. Must have since why would people VOTE for this RINO. Any one with half a brain should have known how it was when it was a gov and how that played out. The people In UTAH know him for what he is and I do believe started a RECALL on him. Maybe it is time to do a new one, and this time go all the way.

When he first came to Utah and helped out with the Olympics he was great, very well liked! But when he started turning against Trump and wanted attention on his own because of his jealousy of President Trump that is when the opinion about him started to change strongly!

The commission will discover all the evidence against globalist puppet $oro$ hiring globalist puppet, libby snow flake sheep and transporting them to washington dc and dressing them in MAGA hats and MAGA shirts and paying them to invade the capitol at the same exact time that 1,000,000 AMERICANS were one mile away enjoying a Trump peaceful speech .

You would think that Romney has been kicked in the head so much that his hatred for President Trump would be attenuated so he would stop making a fool of himself – but I guess hatred just hides behind a political smile.

no big surprise here. I wish he would do his research before he makes a decision. There are videos out there that prove that BLM and AntiFa were involved. But no, anything to hurt President Trump is what he will stand for.

Mitt the snit is not a conservative or a Republican. The good people of Utah need to kick this phony to the curb. Vote him out of office as soon as possible. We need REAL conservative who are willing to fight for the Republican Party platform. Mitt the snit is not that person.

Romney is a traitor to the American people! If he is joining in with the Dem.’s and any other Republican joining really don’t care about the people all they care about is their own power and elitism that’s what they have in common with the left and should lose there positions with in the party and let them become Demosocialist’s! The republican party really don’t need them! Liz Cheyne is right in with them and that’s why she lost her chair! so should the rest who follow them! Were trying to keep our great country from socialism and the only thing these RINO’s should be concerned with is fighting socialism not the working man! But I forget, these people are elitist’s, not working people!

How can these idiots be so ignorant? There are already nine ongoing investigations into Jan. 6. THE ONLY reason Democrats want this commission is so they can spend the next eighteen months ‘leaking’ and giving the weekly Schiff inspired “I’ve seen the evidence” media briefings in order to demoralize Republican voters into staying away from the polls in 2022.
They will likely get their commission, they’ll call if “bipartisan” because of 50/50 R and D but as it is written PELOSI gets to pick the staffers, they are the people who bring the ‘evidence’ to the commission, she will chose those staffers who will do her bidding.
We all need to remember, no matter what they claim, that we MUST get out and vote in 2022. If we do not take back the House and the Senate the country we love will be a memory.
