Never count on Mitt Romney to have any real integrity.

Sen. Mitt Romney said Tuesday he will support holding a vote on President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee this year, all but assuring Republicans can push forward with filling the vacancy left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death.

“The Constitution gives the President the power to nominate and the Senate the authority to provide advice and consent on Supreme Court nominees,” the Utah Republican said in a statement. “Accordingly, I intend to follow the Constitution and precedent in considering the President’s nominee. If the nominee reaches the Senate floor, I intend to vote based upon their qualifications.”

People keep suggesting that Mitt Romney is a different kind of Republican and that he is kind of an Anti-Trump but at the end of the day he is just like all of the rest and cannot be relied on to do the right thing if he believes it will cost him support among the base. 

And let’s be honest if this thing comes to a vote with only two GOP Senators abstaining Trump WILL get his third Supreme Court justice.
