Romney passed the message on to McConnell, typing him a text message [on Jan 2]:

“In case you have not heard this, I just got a call from Angus King, who said that he had spoken with a senior official at the Pentagon who reports that they are seeing very disturbing social media traffic regarding the protests planned on the 6th,” Romney wrote, according to the book.

“There are calls to burn down your home, Mitch; to smuggle guns into DC, and to storm the Capitol. I hope that sufficient security plans are in place, but I am concerned that the instigator—the President—is the one who commands the reinforcements the DC and Capitol police might require,” he said.


Romney’s been doing work to distance himself from the entire Trump/insurrection debacle. It’s been clear for a while he’s disgusted by what MAGA/QAnon have done to the GOP and politics in general.

I may disagree with most of his politics, but I think he honestly tries to do good. He certainly isn’t friends with the elected seditionists that still openly call for revolution on social media.
