Mitt Romney: Justin Amash’s Statement on Impeachment Is ‘Courageous’

‘I believe to make a case for obstruction of justice, you just don’t have the elements that are evidenced in this document’

EXCERPT:

ROMNEY: “Well, I think every individual has to make their own judgment. I think it helps to actually have read the entire document. It’s a long document. It took me two full days to get through it. And the second volume is more difficult one to get through than the first. Hopefully more people read it. But I think a lot of people want to reserve judgment until this is all played out. My own view is that Justin Amash has reached a different conclusion than I have. I respect him. I think it’s a courageous statement. But I believe that to make a case for obstruction of justice, you just don’t have the elements that are evidenced in this document. And I also believe that an impeachment call is not only something that relates to the law but also considers practicality and politics. The American people are just not there and I think those that are considering impeachment have to look also at the jury, which would be the Senate. The Senate is certainly not there either.”
