The Washington Post reports that Senator Mitt Romney is poised to join Democrats and vote to squash a subpoena related to Hunter Biden’s work with the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings.
Biden has been accused of leveraging his father Joe Biden’s status as vice president to get a role on the board of Burisma, while the company used that relationship to garner access to the State Department.
The Senate Homeland Security Committee has scheduled a vote next week to issue a subpoena related to the matter. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) told Fox News that “Joe Biden has never adequately answered these questions,” explaining Republican motivation behind the investigation.
Biden forced out a Ukrainian prosecutor who had been investigating Burisma
“I’ve said repeatedly, if there’s wrongdoing the American people need to understand that. If there is no wrongdoing, or if it’s not significant, the American people need to understand that,” Johnson added.
Enter Mitt Romney to save another corrupt (allegedly) Democrat …
Mitt Romney may block a subpoena to investigate Hunter Biden & Burisma
He says the investigation “looks political”
…Yet when it comes to the MOST partisan impeachment trial in history, Romney votes to convict President Trump?
He is a disgrace to the United States Senate

Romney Indicates He’ll Side With Dems
Romney told the Post that the Republican pursuit of Biden – the lead candidate for the Democrat nomination to the presidency – and his son’s dealings with Burisma, seem political in nature.
“I would prefer that investigations are done by an independent, non-political body,” he claimed. “There’s no question the appearance is not good.”
Romney went on to tell reporters that the investigation “appears political.”
“I think people are tired of these kinds of political investigations.”
In other words, the mighty and righteous Romney is willing to take a stand against pursuits he feels are politically motivated. You know, except for that whole partisan impeachment hack job with which he also chose to team with Democrats.
If party lines hold, Romney’s vote with Democrats would create a 7-7 tie in committee, preventing the subpoena from being issued.
Periodic Reminder that Mitt Romney is a tiny pathetic little man who has betrayed the President at every turn.

Is it any wonder the Utah senator lost an easily winnable election against Barack Obama in 2012? In hindsight, how could Obama have possibly failed when he was essentially running against his clone?
Romney, as you well know, was the only Republican to betray the nation and vote with Democrats in their clearly politically motivated impeachment scam.
“The President is guilty of an appalling abuse of public trust,” Romney melodramatically claimed at the time, despite his Democrat colleagues in the House failing to prove Trump was guilty of anything.
Funny though, when it benefitted his career, the one-time actual Republican was more than willing to accept Trump’s endorsement for President in 2012 and for Senate in 2018.
Now he goes well out of his way to stab him in the back.
Romney is a snake. The only difference being, snakes are adept at sneaking up on their prey. You can see Romney’s betrayals coming a mile away.
