According to The Washington Post, Utah Senator Mitt Romney, a vocal Trump critic accosted Senator Josh Hawley to blame him for the Jan 6th Capitol Riot.
“You have caused this!” Romney reportedly said.
Per Business Insiders “the Post, citing sources familiar with the exchange, reported on the Romney-Hawley confrontation in a lengthy profile of the Missouri senator published on Monday.”
“The newspaper said that as senators were rushed out of the Capitol and into a secure location, ‘Hawley remained combative in pushing the very falsehoods that had helped stoke the violence,’ which prompted Romney’s rebuke,” the report adds.
Mitt Romney has been one of the staunchest defenders of keeping Rep. Liz Cheney in her conference chair leadership role.
Romney tweeted Monday “Expelling Liz Cheney from leadership won’t gain the GOP one additional voter, but it will cost us quite a few.”
