The New York Daily News reports:
Mitt Romney weighed in Wednesday on President Donald Trump’s insinuation that Joe Scarborough murdered a former aide – condemning the accusations ‘vile’ and ‘baseless.’
The public rebuke from the Utah senator and Republican Party’s 2012 nominee came on a morning when the president once again put forth unproven suggestions about the conspiracy theory, despite widower Timothy Klausutis’s plea that Twitter take down his assertions out of respect for his late wife.
Trump returned to the online insinuations Wednesday that prompted Timothy Klausutis to release a pleading letter, as the president once again called for opening a ‘cold case’ and suggested Joe Scarborough murdered his former aide.
I know Joe Scarborough. Joe is a friend of mine. I don’t know T.J. Klausutis. Joe can weather vile, baseless accusations but T.J.? His heart is breaking. Enough already.

Psycho Joe Scarborough is rattled, not only by his bad ratings but all of the things and facts that are coming out on the internet about opening a Cold Case. He knows what is happening!

QAnoners are already going through the Lori Klausutis police report. It has no mention of foul play, but we know from Seth Rich what’s next: demands for release of autopsies, surveillance footage, harassing calls to the Klausutis family. And it’ll never be enough to satisfy them.
