Mitt Romney has always been critical of the president but during an interview on CNN’s State of the Union with host Jake Tapper, he actually defended him a bit.
“You and Congressman Amash are the only two elected Republicans I think to express any misgivings about the behavior of the president or his campaign team based on the Mueller Report, first of all, are you surprised that you two are the only ones have really said anything condemning of the president’s behavior as laid out?” Tapper asked Romney.
“I think every individual has to make their own judgment. I think it helps to actually have read the entire document. It’s a long document. It took me two full days to get through it. The second volume is more difficult to get through than the first. Hopefully, more people read it. I think a lot of people want to reserve judgment until this is played out. My own view is that Justin Amash has reached a different conclusion than I have. I respect him. I think it’s a courageous statement.
But I believe to make a case for obstruction of justice, you just don’t have the elements that are evidenced in this document. And I also believe that an impeachment call is something that not just relates to the law but considers practicality and politics. I think those considering impeachment, you have to look at the jury, which is the Senate. The Senate is certainly not there either.”
“So you don’t think there is sufficient evidence that the president obstructed justice?” Tapper asked.
“I just don’t think there is the full element that you’d need to prove an obstruction of justice case. I don’t think a prosecutor would actually look at this and say ok we have here all of the elements that would get us to a conviction,” Romney replied.

So this just goes to show you where Rep Amash’s true loyalties lie. He should just come out as a Dem already.
