Sen. Romney doesn’t hold Donald Trump in high regard. But his latest statement about the former president is unbelievable.

As Mitt Romney just uttered a stunning conclusion about Trump’s guilty verdict that has Republicans shell-shocked.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg ran for his office with the promise that he would do everything to convict former President Donald Trump.

Bragg made good on his promise last Thursday when Trump was found guilty in a hush money trial involving alleged payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

But Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) doesn’t think Bragg should be proud of himself for bringing this case forward in the first place.

“Bragg should have settled the case against Trump, as would have been the normal procedure. But he made a political decision,” Romney said to his biographer, McKay Coppins.

“Bragg may have won the battle, for now, but he may have lost the political war. Democrats think they can put out the Trump fire with oxygen. It’s political malpractice.”

What makes Romney’s comments so surprising is that he’s a noted RINO (Republican In Name Only) and a critic of Donald Trump’s.

Romney voted twice to impeach the former president. Once in 2020 and once in 2021.

The Utah senator, who’s planning to retire when his term ends early next year, has also announced that he doesn’t plan on voting for Trump in the general election this year.

When asked earlier this year by CNN’s Kaitlan Collins if he’d vote for Trump, Romney responded, “No, no, no, absolutely not.”

But the RINO senator’s lack of support for the former president hasn’t stopped him from making comments before that are critical towards the Democrats’ scheme to convict Trump.

In April, Romney was confused as to why President Joe Biden didn’t pardon Donald Trump when federal indictments were brought against him.

“Had I been President Biden, when the Justice Department brought on indictments, I would have immediately pardoned him,” Romney said on MSNBC at the time.

“Because it makes me, President Biden, the big guy and the person [who] pardoned a little guy.”

Mitt Romney is correct that Alvin Bragg could very well have “lost the political war.”

Since Trump’s guilty verdict, he has raised several hundred million dollars in donations.

He’s also still the leader in polls that show a rematch between himself and Biden in the presidential election. If anything, the verdict has greatly fired up the Trump base.

Not only that, but Donald Trump and his team are confident that they can get the guilty ruling overturned by appealing the decision.
