appalling abuse of public trust

In a gesture that means nothing and everything, junior Senator from Utah, former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican nominee for president of the United States, Mitt Romney (also known by his Twitter handle Pierre Delecto) was the sole member of the Grand Old Party to demonstrate any conviction of character and find Trump guilty of the accusations that the House of Representatives levied against him. Romney, moreover, is the first Senator in history to convict a member of his own party—the votes for removing a seated president in the case of Andrew Johnson and William Clinton following party lines. We’ll see what sort of wrath and inspiration that this act will bring.
