He should have seen this coming…
Trump recently released a statement in which he congratulated the members of Utah’s Weber County Republican Convention for their action to censure Sen. Mitt Romney.
He wrote, “After being loudly booed at the Utah Republican Party Convention, Utah’s Weber County censured RINO Mitt Romney in the strongest of terms. Washington County Republicans also censured Romney in April.”

The resolution from the Weber County Republican Convention stated, “The Weber County Republican Convention censures Mitt Romney for his votes to convict President Trump in two U.S. Senate impeachment trials which denied the President due process, allowed falsified evidence, did not provide adequate time for an investigation, and did not follow the U.S. Constitution, which states a President may only be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors.”
“The Utah Republican Party Platform requires us to hold elected leaders accountable to ethical standards, and voting to convict a former President without sufficient evidence to prove any of the elements of the charge of incitement of insurrection is both unjust and unethical.”
