Mike Lee Isn’t on the Same Page as Romney: ‘Nothing’ in the Mueller Report ‘Changes My View’ of POTUS

Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) doesn’t agree with his fellow Utah Senator Mitt Romney’s reaction to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report following his investigation into alleged collusion between President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.

Appearing on Sunday’s “Face the Nation,” Lee was asked about Romney’s response to the report, in which he laid into the president, as IJR Blue reported. He responded by pointing to Romney’s past fear of Russia being a geopolitical threat, but said nothing in the Mueller report “changes my mind” about the president:

“There’s nothing in this report that changes my view of this president. I don’t think most Americans, I don’t think most senators, most members of Congress, I don’t think most Americans will have their view of the President of the United States changed by this report. There’s just nothing in there that should do that.”

Watch his comments below:

Lee was then pressed on if he thinks Mueller was “fair” to president Trump and argued that the special counsel was “thorough” but “odd.”

“For example, when he talks about obstruction. I think it’s odd to say, ‘I’m not going to make a recommendation, but I’m going to sound like I’m making a recommendation. There’s not evidence that I can point to but nonetheless I couldn’t get there even if I did,'” he said.

“It’s kind of strange to spend two years on that and then speak with the sort of tone that is reminiscent of Pinocchio in the movie ‘Shrek 3,'” he added. “It’s full of double negatives. It’s kind of confusing.”

Watch his comments below:

The senator appears to be referring to a scene from “Shrek 3” in which Pinocchio states a string of double negatives in order to avoid giving a straight answer.

Watch the scene below:

Following his critical comments of the president, Romney has come under fire from President Trump himself, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. Mueller’s report was released on Thursday and established no collusion between the president and Russia.

Since the Leftists lost any foothold they thought they had towards removing Trump from Office, they’re now screaming more loudly “impeachment”. DO IT! TRY and remove Trump from Office IF YOU conjure up some ridiculous idea he has violated his Oath of Office or colluded with Russia like Hillary and the DNC actually DID. Even an attempt to impeach #45 will guarantee him a 30% rise in his approval AND reelection by a landslide in 2020. DO IT, numb skulls!

Any effort to impeach Trump by the Socialists/Communists (AOC, Tlaib, Omar, etc.) may fly in the House; but will never get approved by the Senate. As such any waste of time in the House to remove Trump will be less effective than that used to remove lecherous Bill Clinton.
