Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Mitt Romney claims 'truth and justice' require Senate to hold impeachment trial against Trump”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Republican Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah) claimed Sunday that the Senate will conduct a second impeachment trial against now-former President Donald Trump in order to uphold "truth and justice."

Speaking on "Fox News Sunday," Romney told show host Chris Wallace that an impeachment trial is necessary to hold Trump accountable for the deadly violence at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, as well as his controversial call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

"Well, we're certainly going to have a trial. I wish that weren't necessary, but the president's conduct with regards to the call to Secretary of State Raffensperger in Georgia as well as the incitation towards the insurrection that led to the attack on the Capitol call for a trial," Romney said.

"And, you know, if we're going to have unity in our country, I think it's important to recognize the need for accountability, for truth and justice," the Utah senator added.

Romney, of course, did not reveal how he would vote during the trial. But Romney did say that the article of impeachment passed by the House two weeks ago "suggests impeachable conduct."
