Mitt Romney Wants Others To Impeach Donald Trump For Him
Mitt Romney is a slimy dude. His political and private sector career at Bain Capital are proof of that. He's also a dude who desperately wants to become president. Why else would you run for president twice? Why else would you consider a third run in 2016? Why else would you give up an elder statesman status to move from Massachusetts to Utah to become a Senator?
His only problem is to get a Republican base that currently supports Donald Trump being president to support him instead. He believes the solution is to keep his distance from Trump but still be part of the Republican party and keep them all happy. When Trump fails, he can pick up the pieces. It's unknown if a better solution would be to truly 100% oppose Trump and his Republicans, and be a man of convictions that voters might admire for balls. But I digress. That's why he supported Justin Amash as the first republican house member to call for impeachment. That's also why he didn't actually join Amash's impeachment call. He merely offered personal support.
Having Trump lose support and primarying him or Mike Pence, and then winning the presidency is an uphill battle. But Mitt Romney is obsessed with it and will take do it if he believes he has a credible opportunity to do so. Even if Mitt Romney's calling in life is to continuously run for president, he one day may actually succeed in becoming one.
