Mitt Romney Just Burned Donald Trump Over Ukraine Call On Joe Biden

Republican Senator Mitt Romney

A major scandal has been building over President Donald Trump’s call with Ukraine’s new president Volodymyr Zelensky, in which he pressured the foreign leader to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son.

Senator Mitt Romney of Utah just weighed in on the political firestorm, becoming the first Republican to condemn President Donald Trump over his treasonous action.

“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,” Romney tweeted. “Critical for the facts to come out.”

Romney’s remarks come as Democrats, including Biden, have been calling for a transcript of the call to be released. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff said Sunday that if reports are true, it could lead to impeachment.

With those words, Romney, who himself launched unsuccessful presidential bids in 2008 and 2012, became the first major GOP politician to voice concerns about the Ukraine call. It comes as Democrats, including Biden, have demanded that a transcript of the call be released. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff said Sunday that if reports are true, impeachment “may be the only remedy.”

Both Trump and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, have alleged that Biden pressured Ukrainian officials into ending an investigation into his son, Hunter Biden, back in 2016. Trump has denied that anything improper occurred during the call with Ukraine’s Zelensky.
