Behind the Headlines

Sen. Mitt Romney’s party-defying vote on impeachment and a trial in a multi-million dollar tax scam


Sen. Mitt Romney breaks with his party by voting to convict President Donald Trump on the abuse of power impeachment charge. A Utah polygamist who pleaded guilty in a massive biodiesel fraud scam testifies against another major player in the scheme. And a state senator files a bill to reduce the penalties for polygamy in Utah.
