Mitt Romney Officially Uninvited To Conservative Conference Over Pro-Witness Vote At Impeachment Trial

Mitt Romney has done it again.

When the Senate voted on witnesses at the impeachment trial, he sided with the Democrats.

Is anyone surprised?

For doing this, Romney has been officially uninvited to CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, which is happening later this month.

The chairman of CPAC announced that Utah Sen. Mitt Romney is “formally not invited” to the conservative group’s annual conference this year.

Matt Schlapp, the head of the American Conservative Union, said Romney is not allowed at the event after the Utah Republican voted in favor of summoning witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump. Romney was one of two Republicans who joined 47 Democrats in supporting the motion, which failed to pass on Friday.

“BREAKING: The ‘extreme conservative’ and Junior Senator from the great state of Utah, @SenatorRomney is formally NOT invited to #CPAC2020,” Schlapp wrote in a tweet, which featured a photo of a troubled-looking Romney.

It is unclear whether Romney was expecting to attend this year’s CPAC next month.

Romney recently slammed Trump’s critical statements about former national security adviser John Bolton, whom Democratic House impeachment managers have fought to have as a witness. Bolton announced earlier this month he would testify if subpoenaed, and excerpts of his unpublished book have leaked to the press in recent days containing allegations of Trump pressuring Ukraine to help collect information on his political rivals.

Lots of conservatives are not happy with Romney right now.

Why did Romney do this? It makes no sense.
