    Senator Mitt Romneyis the first senator in American history to vote to remove a president of his own party from office. He said: "Attempting to corrupt an election to maintain power is about as egregious an assault on the Constitution as can be made"

    And he was very aware that he would suffer serious political ramifications for his decision. The attacks promptly started short after, e.g. Donald Trump Jr. posted a picture on Instagram calling Romney a “pussy”. A truly Republican style?

    Besides many Republicans mad at Romney, Utahs republicans seems to see the matter a bit different:

    “Censuring Senator Romney for voting his conscience is a tricky place to be,” speaker of the state House Brad Wilson.

    “I think that would be just a mistake to go down that road.”, governor Gary Herbert in The Salt Lake Tribun.

    “What I don’t want to do is move into the negative rhetoric I think is coming from Washington, D.C.”, president of the State Senate J. Stuart Adams.
