Mitt Romney Says Trump Is Guilty In NY Hush Money Case

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) is giving former President Donald Trump a guilty verdict in his New York criminal case. Romney weighed in on the case this week during an interview with CNN’s Manu Raju, saying that Trump is guilty of the charge of falsifying business records to cover up payments he made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

According to him, “I think everybody has made their own assessment of President Trump’s character.

He went on to state that as far as he knows, nobody pays “someone $130,000 not to” sleep with you.

When the interview was aired on CNN’s “News Central,” host Boris Sanchez stated, “The former president’s longtime friend and former National Enquirer publisher, David Pecker, returned to the stand and detailed how he killed the stories as part of a highly confidential agreement with Trump, made it all the way back in 2015 when he announced his first presidential run.”

“Wow, that was Republican Senator Mitt Romney, uh, what a soundbite, racting there to Donald Trump’s hush money trial as today’s testimony brought back to light multiple lured allegations against the former president including alleged affairs for the Playboy model with a porn star and an unsubstantiated accusation that he fathered a loved child,” host Brianna Keilar said.

Trump has, however, maintained that he is innocent of the charges, as he said that the alleged affair with Daniels never happened.

Romney has never shied away from revealing his distaste for Trump. He made it clear in December that he would not support the GOP presumptive nominee in the 2024 presidential election. Should he end up being the party’s official candidate, he suggested that he would rather vote for President Joe Biden.

“I think we agree that we have looked at his behaviour, and his behaviour suggests that this is a person who will impose his will if he can, on the judicial system, on the legislative branch and on the entire nation”, he said on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.”

Romney reiterated his position in February when asked by The Source’s Kaitlan Collins if he would vote for Trump over Biden.

“No. No, no, absolutely not,” he responded, adding, “On foreign policy, I’m not aligned with Donald Trump, at least as I understand his policy.”

He also revealed during the conversation that character is a primary consideration for his choice of who to support as president.

“Having a president who is so defaulted of character would have an enormous impact on the character of America,” he said.
