Sen. Mitt Romney: "What happened here today was an insurrection, incited by the President"

From CNNs Nicky Robertson

Republican Sen. Mitt Romney, who has condemned GOP attempts to subvert the will of the voters in the presidential election, released a statement Wednesday night containing remarks he would have said in the US Senate before the insurrection in the US Capitol.

We gather today due to a selfish mans injured pride and the outrage of his supporters whom he has deliberately misinformed for the past two months and stirred to action this very morning. What happened here today was an insurrection, incited by the President of the United States. Those who choose to continue to support his dangerous gambit by objecting to the results of a legitimate, democratic election will forever be seen as being complicit in an unprecedented attack against our democracy. They will be remembered for their role in this shameful episode in American history. That will be their legacy, Romney said.

Romney went on to say, I urge my colleagues to move forward with completing the electoral count, to refrain from further objections, and to unanimously affirm the legitimacy of the presidential election.

2. Yes, He Voted for it Last Time, He Was the Lone GOP'er To Do So

I don't have much good to say about him, but he's been a lone voice in the wilderness, and as much as I disagree with him politically, I don't believe he's a traitor and may be a severely misguided, but not quite evil person...and may in fact, in his own warped way, support the constitution and many of it's ideals. He apparently does have lines he won't cross and some semblance of morality and patriotism.
