Trump knocks ‘failed presidential candidate’ Romney after impeachment vote

President Trump in an early morning tweet on Thursday ramped up his jabs targeted at Sen. Mitt Romney after the Utah Republican voted to convict Trump on one article of impeachment in his Senate trial.

“Had failed presidential candidate @MittRoney devoted the same energy and anger to defeating a faltering Barack Obama as he sanctimoniously does to me, he could have won the election,” the president said.

Trump then repeated a favorite talking point of his during the now-ended impeachment proceedings: “Read the Transcripts!”

On Wednesday, Romney announced on the Senate floor that later in the day he would vote to convict Trump on the charge of abuse of power, one of the two articles of impeachment levied against the president.

Romney said in an Atlantic interview that while the decision was “”the most difficult decision” of his life, Trump was “guilty of an appalling abuse of public trust.”

Trump on Wednesday night also accused Romney of being a Democratic spy.
