Judge Jeanine Opening Statement Transcript
Judge Jeanine: This week we witnessed the difference between a leader and a wanna be. The stark contrast between someone who is the world leader and someone who’s hoping his day will come. But being a leader takes vision fortitude, persistence and a selflessness, a dug-in determination to a goal that never changes. By way of example, permit me to introduce you to non-leader, the first United States Senator in American history to vote to convict the President of his own party, Mitt Romney, the sole and only Republican to vote to convict President Trump.
How dare he? How could he? And why would he? Mitt dared to do what he thought was good for him individually, not the party, not for us and certainly not for America. He knew his vote would nothing regarding impeachment. But he tried to set himself up as a leader going against everyone else. He took a stand he thought would impress others. It did. Many of the looney left defended him saying his vote was very patriotic. Yes he endeared himself to the Trump hating left, the radicals not interested in the America First agenda. Those all about power not truth.
So why? Mitt says his strong faith is a reason and let God demanded it of me.
Mitt Romney: My promise before God to apply impartial Justice required that I put my personal feelings and political bias aside. Were I to ignore the evidence that has been presented and disregard what I believe my oath and the Constitution demands of me for the sake of a partisan end it would, I fear, expose my character to history’s rebuke.
Judge Jeanine: I’m Catholic, I went to catholic school and I believe in God. Do you ever wonder why people who never mention God or religion only bring it up when they get caught doing something, or need an excuse for something they did. Kind of like Nancy Pelosi, who was so hates Donald Trump, that she almost has a conniption when she tries to get us to believe she prays for him everyday and does not hate him. Who do these people think they’re fooling. What a bunch of phonies. I can’t wait to hear what they’re going to tell Saint Peter when they get there. But let me move on from his religious to his secular reason.
Mitt Romney: I sought to hear I want to hear testimony from John Bolton now only because I believe he could add context to the charges, but also because I hoped that what he might say could raise reasonable doubt.
Judge Jeanine: Mitt, a primer. The transcript of the telephone call which no one expected the president would release is the Corpus. It is the body of the alleged wrongdoing. Anything before, after or around it is irrelevant and material. What was said in that conversation is what acquits or convicts the the president. Curious, you used Bolton as an excuse to convict when you don’t even know what he’s going to say and when the prosecutors haven’t made out a prima facie case. Mr. Wannabe, did you ask or even wonder why the Democrat House Managers didn’t subpoena Bolton. When the prosecution doesn’t present evidence that you want, and you don’t have the slightest idea what that evidence might be or whether its even relevant. You want to use that to convict the president of the United States. Are you stupid too? You take non-evidence that the Democrats refuse to present as the reason to convict the president in an economy that is unparalleled, with a military whose strength unequal, where the population or 90% are happy with their lives. You really are stupid. You use the prosecutors inability to make a case as a reason to vote guilty. Run that by America again, Mitt. The facts before you make it clear there was no pressure, no demands, no Ukranian investigation, where the money was actually delivered before required, where our president under an international treaty had the right to ask for help. In fact, an obligation to investigate corruption, especially where United States taxpayers money goes to foreign countries. And you say, this is the most difficult decision you’ve ever made. Mitt, you’re full of it, and since you’re such a scholar, did you ever consider the president’s constitutional rights that was stripped from him in the Star Chamber where he was in denied the presumption of innocence. The truth is, Mitt, you simply despise Donald Trump. Your jealousy of this man is a constant rage burning within you because you can never rise to the heights that he has. Because guys like to fold like wusses. You don’t have any selflessness or the ability to think about others as Donald Trump has thought about Making America First. And by the way, you’re an embarrassment. I should know. I said it four years ago.
Judge Jeanine: Your niambie pamby reason that you won’t support Donald Trump, even if he’s the party’s nominee, you worry what your tell your grandchildren when they ask, ‘Why Grandpa, didn’t you stop Donald Trump?’ Well, maybe you better worry about when they ask about your loss to Barack Obama. What are you going to tell them? Will you tell them that you choked.
Mitt, losers choke. You choked when a CNN reporter push back on you and you folded it like every other loser. And you always talk about your grandchildren, what you’ll say to them. You just did it again. You ought to think about telling them that your the reason Barack Obama got four more years, with and economy in the tank, a caliphate that was growing, law enforcement and Military morale in the garbage. You haven’t always been able to hide the real you, in fact, the people who new you best when you ran, the people of Massachusetts, voted against you. It was one of the worst home state losses in presidential history. And your arrogance, again on full display.
Mitt Romney: I do believe it should be removed from office.
Judge Jeanine: Really Mitt, he should be removed from office. He should be removed from office. For what? So you can try to make another move for president. I got news for you, you got no moves left. At your request Donald Trump supported you in 2012 and 2018, and like a snake in the grass you turned on him. I have an idea, you need to be removed from office. How about you get the hell out of the United States Senate. The people in UTAH are furious with you and your dream of endearing yourself to the Trump holding is a left is a joke. So Mitt, pack your bags, take some time off, and ride around with your dog on the roof of your car. And don’t forget, when you lie with dogs, you get fleas, but that’ll never be as bad as the stain you were forged upon whatever legacy you think you have. And that’s my open.
Mike Huckebee on Facts of the Matter: The WORST Decision Of Mitt Romney’s Career
Mike Huckabee discusses the choice made by Senator Mitt Romney to vote for impeachment.
Mike Huckabee statement regarding Mitt Romney’s Impeachment vote Transcript
Mike Huckabee: It’s right now time to look back on another week that rivals the best television soap operas. There was dysunction acrimony in circles and bags in the nation’s capital from political bureaucrats breathing their last gasp of the impeachment hoax. President Trump was acquitted last Wednesday, no thanks to senator of Utah, Mitt Romney, the lone Republican dissenter who voted to convict the president. Now with Republican friends like these, who needs Democratic enemies. Romney, supposedly acting on his conscience and his oath to God, sounded as if he could have been one of those Democrat house managers chastising the president for imaginary crimes. Anti-Trumper’s are turning Romney into a hero, thumbing their noses at those who took the process and the rules of evidence seriously and they concluded that the house just didn’t prove its case.
One excellent point made by a caller to Rush Limbaugh Show has been making the rounds.
If Romney believed, just a week ago, that there wasn’t enough evidence to convict Trump without additional witnesses, how can you vote to convict in the Senate when they have been two additional witnesses?
Mike Huckabee: That’s a mystery to me too. So Romney told Chris Wallace that the worst thing that ever happened to him politically has already happen, that was losing the presidency in 2012, well after this self-serving stunt, I think the worst thing to ever happen to the country would be, if he’s actually become president. Now, Mitts going to go down in history as the first Senator ever to vote to convict a remove a president of his own party. time will tell if that turns out to be the worst thing to ever happen to him politically.
