Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, on Sunday called a GOP lawmaker’s decision “courageous,” when he said that the Mueller report found “impeachable conduct” by President Donald Trump.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” the 2012 GOP presidential nominee said, however, impeachment was a move that must consider both “practicality and politics.”

My own view is that [Rep.] Justin Amash [R-Mich.] has reached a different conclusion than I have. I respect him. I think it's a courageous statement,” he said. “But I believe to make a case for obstruction of justice, you just don't have the elements that are evidenced in this document. 

“And I also believe that an impeachment call is something that not just relates to the law but considers practicality and politics. I think those considering impeachment have to look at the jury, which is the Senate. 

“The Senate is certainly not there either.”
