SALT LAKE CITY, Utah- (ABC4 News) – Senator Mitt Romney was a guest on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday morning.
One of the big topics was Alabama’s new abortion law, essentially banning it and creating a felony charge for doctors who perform the procedure.
Senator Romney says it goes too far.
“I don’t support the Alabama law. I believe that there ought to be exceptions, I’m pro-life, but there ought to be exceptions for rape, incest or when the life of the mother is at risk,” said Romney, (R) Utah.
The Mueller Report was also on the table.
The first Republican has now come out saying the president is guilty of impeachable conduct.
Romney doesn’t agree with that.
“Justin Amash has reached a different conclusion than I have. I respect him, I think it’s a courageous statement, but I believe to make a case for an obstruction of justice you just don’t have the elements that are evidence to this document,” Romney said.
Even though the senator defends the president against impeachment, he reaffirms he is troubled by some of the president’s behavior.
“Clearly, the number of times that there were items of dishonesty, misleading the American public and the media, those are things that really you would not want to see from the highest office in the land,” he said.
When asked about Iran, Senator Romney said he believes the country is a real threat.
He says out of an abundance of caution Americans should be moved out of harm’s way.
