Romney says Trump has ‘disgraced the office of the presidency’

By John Wagner and Mike DeBonis

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said Wednesday that Trump has “disgraced the office of the presidency” as he decried the effort by some of his Republican colleagues to object to electoral college votes of several states that Biden won.

“The gambit that we’re seeing today, very disappointing,” Romney told reporters. “President Trump has disrespected the American voters, has dishonored the election system and has disgraced the office of the presidency, and I’m confident that we’ll proceed as the Constitution demands and tell our supporters the truth, whether or not they want to hear it.”

His comments came shortly before Trump was scheduled to address a rally of his supporters near the White House and a couple of hours before Congress was scheduled to convene in a joint session to count the electoral college votes.
