REPUBLICANS RALLY AROUND MITT ROMNEY AFTER CALLS FOR HIS EXPULSION FROM GOP OVER VOTE TO CONVICT TRUMP
Senate Republicans rejected calls from President Donald Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., and others within the party Wednesday to oust Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) from the GOP or to issue a formal reprimand over his impeachment vote to convict the president.
Instead, Romney's colleagues came to his support, despite their disagreement with his position that Trump was guilty for the abuse of power charge against him.
"I think that's silly talk," Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.) said. "We turn the page after today and get on with the agenda."
