Mitt Romney Betrays Trump, Calls For Investigation Into Rape Allegation

Leave it to the ever-hapless Mitt Romney to consistently do the wrong thing. Look, women have not been believed for too long.

We need to change that but we don’t change that by now believing every woman, even the least credible ones like Trump’s new accuser.

Jean Carroll came out of nowhere, after 30 or something years, to accuse Trump of sexual assault.

Then she went on CNN and proved herself to be quite the whacko and not credible at all. The video is below and you can judge for yourself – hint she calls rape sexy and a fantasy and she sounds drunk or on medication when she is saying it.

So what does Romney do? Calls for an investigation. What a joke. What we should be investigating is all the destruction Mitt caused by Bain capital. All those jobs shipped overseas, all those US pensions wiped out so Mitt could buy another mansion. That’s what we should be investigating.

From CNN:

Two Republican senators said Tuesday the rape allegation made against President Donald Trump by writer E. Jean Carroll should be explored to determine the veracity of the allegation against the President — even as many Senate Republicans sidestepped questions over the matter and defended Trump.

Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa said both Trump and Carroll should be questioned about the alleged assault.

“I think anybody that makes an accusation like that, they should come forward,” Ernst said when asked if Carroll should be believed. “But obviously there has to be some additional information. They need to interview her. They need to visit with him.”

Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah said there needs to be an “evaluation” but that he didn’t know what entity should conduct it, “whether it’s Congress or whether it’s another setting, I’m not sure.”

“It’s a very serious allegation,” Romney said. “I hope that it is fully evaluated. The President said it didn’t happen and I certainly hope that’s the case.”

The second-ranking senator in GOP leadership, Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, called the alleged acts “unacceptable, deplorable behavior” but said because “the President is denying them, I can’t comment on them because I don’t know what the truth is.”

Thune added, “I think anytime you have a situation like this where nobody knows exactly what the truth and exactly what the facts are, it’s hard to draw any hard-and-fast conclusions.”

When Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican and ally of Trump’s was asked about the rape charges, he paused, took a deep breath and shook his head. Then he said, “He’s denied it, and that’s enough for me. Until somebody comes up with something new.”

Sen. Thom Tillis, a Republican of North Carolina, also said he will take Trump’s denial “at face value.”

Asked if he is concerned about a pattern of charges against Trump, Tillis turned his focus to allegations of sexual assault that almost sank now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation last year.

“I remember a pattern of conduct the press tried to conjure with Brett Kavanaugh that much of it proved to be incorrect,” Tillis said. “I’m not going to judge based on media reporting. If I have facts in front of me to the contrary, then that would be a different discussion.”

From Breitbart:

Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Joni Ernst (R-IA) split from members of their party Tuesday and requested more information on E. Jean Carroll’s claim that Donald Trump raped her 23 years ago.

While many of his Republican colleagues have remained silent on the issue, or come out in support of the president, Romney claimed the accusation placed by Jean Carroll, who previously said “most people think of rape as being sexy,” is a “serious” allegation, according to CNN.

“It’s a very serious allegation,” Romney said. “I hope that it is fully evaluated. The President said it didn’t happen and I certainly hope that’s the case.”
