Trump Is Now Trying To Discredit Romney By Tying Him To Ukraine Scandal
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) was the one and only Republican in the Senate to vote to convict Donald Trump as the impeachment concluded. Romney cited his faith as the main reason behind his decision.
Trump has since been attacking Romney left and right. And now, according to Politico, Trump is trying to discredit Romney by making him part of the grand Biden/Ukraine conspiracy theory.
“Trump over the weekend retweeted several conservative personalities and stories attempting to connect the Republican senator to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma and its former board member Hunter Biden, two parties at the center of Trump’s attempted quid pro quo,” wrote Tina Nguyen for Politico. “The allegation was featured in several far-right blog posts: A senior advisor from Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign was on Burisma’s board of directors, and that by voting to impeach Trump last week, Romney was covering for his fellow swamp crony.”
“While Trump’s campaign had highlighted the allegation earlier, the post-impeachment flurry of tweets was the first time that Trump himself acknowledged the theory,” continued the article. “At one point, the president retweeted a random follower’s newfound suspicion: “Romney is covering up his part in corruption in Ukraine. This has nothing to do with truth or God. He is a desperate man. The truth will come out.”
