Over the weekend GOP Rep Justin Amash came out in favor of impeaching President Trump. Now, Mitt Romney is offering his support for the president and saying he doesn't agree with the Congressman's statement.

According to Town Hall:

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) on Saturday took to Twitter to explain why he believes President Donald Trump's actions are impeachable. During an Sunday interview on CNN's "State of the Union," Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said he thought Amash was "courageous" for making the statement but he disagreed with the Congressman's assessment.

"Justin Amash has reached a different conclusion than I have," Romney said. "I respect him. I think it’s a courageous statement, but I believe that to make the case for obstruction of justice, you just don’t have the elements."

Not only that but the former presidential candidate feels as though the American people don't believe impeachment proceedings should take place.

"An impeachment call is something that not just relates to the law but considers practicality and politics. And the American people just aren't there," Romney said.

Romney also pointed out that the Senate would be Trump's jury and with a Republican majority, it is highly unlikely Trump would be removed from office.
