Mitt Romney ‘Sickened’ By Mueller Report Findings On Trump

The Utah senator said he was appalled by revelations in the special counsel's report about Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said Friday he was “sickened” by some of the findings in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report about the Trump campaign’s ties with Russia.

Romney, one of the few vocal GOP critics of President Donald Trump’s administration, said though he was happy the findings didn’t justify charging the president, he was appalled by revelations in the report, which was released in full Thursday. 

“I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonest and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” Romney wrote. 

While Romney’s response is more forceful than that of other Republicans, who have largely ignored the report’s negative findings, he did not propose any action to hold the Trump campaign accountable. 

Some of the report’s most damning findings about the Trump campaign include conclusions that the president did try to cover up that infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russian agents and members of his inner circle and that Trump attempted to obstruct justice by asking aides to interfere with Mueller’s investigation.
