US Senator Mitt Romney was the only Republican to break ranks and vote to convict President Donald Trump of abuse of power.

"I'm aware that there are people in my party and in my state who will strenuously disapprove of my decision, and in some quarters, I will be vehemently denounced. I'm sure to hear abuse from the president and his supporters," Romney said in his speech at Trump's impeachment trial.  

"Does anyone seriously believe that I would consent to these consequences other than from an inescapable conviction that my oath before God demanded of me?"
