Letter: It’s time for Romney and Trump to make amends

Letter to the Editor Deseret News

Even though I live in Idaho, I follow Utah news on a regular basis. I have followed Sen. Mitt Romney throughout his political career, even as far back as his running for the U.S. Senate against former Sen. Ted Kennedy. I enthusiastically supported him in his run to become president.

However, I have not been too happy with him or with President Donald Trump for the way they have been sparring with each other. I have to say that they are both at fault. Now, with the revelations that came out two weeks ago showing that the Robert Mueller probe into President Trump was founded on false premises and that the FBI pursuit of Gen. Micheal Flynn was unlawful, I am left with a few questions:

(1) How did he justify voting to impeach President Trump, when the whole Mueller probe was not justified? Does he think those responsible for doing all this illegal activity should be punished for their actions?

(2) Is Sen. Romney willing to make amends with President Trump and admit he has made mistakes regarding him and support him in his attempts to “drain the swamp?”

I wish both Sen. Romney and President Trump success in righting the ship that they and I know has to happen if our descendants are going to enjoy the America that we have known.
