Why doesn’t RINO Romney come out of the closet as a Democrat already?
Mitt is once again siding with the left in their ridiculous accusation that President Trump inappropriately pressured a Ukrainian leader over the phone to investigate Joe Biden and son Hunter.
Sen. Romney says that if the supposed Trump-Ukraine scandal is true (and, that’s a big if), “it would be troubling to the extreme.”
Here’s his tweet on the matter:
It's ironic how Romney also noted that it's "Critical for the facts to come out," while simultaneously ignoring the fact that Hunter Biden was paid 50K per month by a Ukrainian energy company - while what he did for them was unknown - during the time his father was Vice President to Obama.
These are the facts, and if Romney was really concerned about facts, this would be the part of the story he would be focusing on instead of some unnamed "whistleblower's" baseless accusation against Trump.
Dan Bongino said it best:
Axios gave a great overview of Romney's condemnation of Trump in the Biden-Ukraine scandal:
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Sunday responded to allegations that President Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden and his son, condemning them as "troubling in the extreme" and tweeting that it's "[c]ritical for the facts to come out."
Why it matters: Romney's comments are the harshest to come from a Republican senator thus far, with others largely remaining silent or dismissing the allegations as gossip. It's worth noting, however, that both Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani confirmed on Sunday that the president discussed Biden during a July 25 phone call with Zelensky, though they contend that there was no "quid pro quo" involved.
Breitbart also said:
President Trump asking Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden would be “troubling in the extreme,” Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Sunday.
“If the President asked or pressured Ukraine’s president to investigate his political rival, either directly or through his personal attorney, it would be troubling in the extreme,” he wrote on Twitter:
If the President asked or pressured Ukraine’s president to investigate his political rival, either directly or through his personal attorney, it would be troubling in the extreme. Critical for the facts to come out.

Romney’s comments come after a report published Saturday by the Wall Street Journal which said a whistleblower claimed that the president urged Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky during a July phone call to look into Biden’s son Hunter’s business dealings with the eastern European country.
The report stated:
‘He told him that he should work with [Mr. Giuliani] on Biden, and that people in Washington wanted to know’ whether allegations were true or not, one of the people said. Mr. Trump didn’t mention a provision of foreign aid to Ukraine on the call, said this person, who didn’t believe Mr. Trump offered the Ukrainian president any quid-pro-quo for his cooperation on an investigation.
However, congressional Republicans have come out in defense of President Trump by stating that private phone calls between the president and foreign leaders are imperative if he is to perform his job well.
