( – Republican Senator Mitt Romney (Utah) suggested President Joe Biden made a strategic error when he didn’t pardon former President Donald Trump from legal prosecution.

Speaking to MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle, Romney asserted Biden “should have fought like crazy” to prevent Trump’s prosecution from proceeding, suggesting either scenario would be a “win-win” for Trump.

Romney insisted that despite the President only being able to pardon federal cases, Biden “made an enormous error” when he didn’t pardon Trump or pressure New York’s Democrat prosecutors from dropping the hush money case against the former President.

He suggested Biden squandered the opportunity to have the country unite behind him.

Romney hypothesized that had he been in Biden’s position, he would have pardoned Trump as it would make him appear to be the “big guy” pardoning the “little guy.”

The Republican Senator pointed out that there was already political precedent for such a move, highlighting the Presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson.

He suggested Johsnon, if “he didn’t want something like this to happen,” would have been assertively pursuing prosecutors, telling them not to bring the case forward or they’d be driven out of office.

However, Romney also had harsh words for his fellow Republicans who’ve been allied with Trump and slammed the ongoing hush money trial as a “sham.”

The Utah Republican described the actions of his Republican counterparts as an “enormous mistake,” claiming it was terrible for the country to witness people “attacking our legal system,” and even more damaging, see people so blatantly attempt to run for Vice President by “donning a red tie” and defending Trump outside the Manhattan courthouse.
