Romney Leads Republican Civil War, Attacks Cruz and Pro-Trump Conservatives
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued a blistering condemnation of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and other Republican senators who announced they plan to object to the electoral college results from states with disputed elections.
“The egregious ploy to reject electors may enhance the political ambition of some, but dangerously threatens our Democratic Republic,” Romney wrote in a scathing Facebook pst. “The congressional power to reject electors is reserved for the most extreme and unusual circumstances. These are far from it. More Americans participated in this election than ever before, and they made their choice.”
President Trump’s lawyers made their case before scores of courts; in every instance, they failed, he said.

He also pointed out the Justice Department found no evidence of irregularity sufficient to overturn the election nor did the Presidential Voter Fraud Commission disbanded without finding such evidence.
“My fellow Senator Ted Cruz and the co-signers of his statement argue that rejection of electors or an election audit directed by Congress would restore trust in the election. Nonsense. This argument ignores the widely perceived reality that Congress is an overwhelmingly partisan body; the American people wisely place greater trust in the federal courts where judges serve for life,” Romney wrote.
He accused members of Congress of substituting “their own partisan judgment for that of the courts.”
That sort of behavior, Romney said, imperils public trust.
“Were Congress to actually reject state electors, partisans would inevitably demand the same any time their candidate had lost,” he said. “Congress, not voters in the respective states, would choose our presidents.”
