Opinion| Lawrence David| Utah Senator Mitt Romney cannot be trusted. He threw the 2012 presidential election to Barack Obama and four years later called Donald Trump a fraud and worked against Trump’s election.
After Trump became president, Romney begged him to be Secretary of State. President Trump wisely passed.
Then Romney ran for the senate from Utah and again begged President Trump for his endorsement. Turncoat Romney followed Trump’s magnanimous gesture by voting to impeach him.

He’s not the kind of guy you should trust with your children or your money…
Now the Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Ron Johnson is preparing to issue the first subpoena to kickstart the Burisma Holdings corruption investigation.
Guess which other senator is on that committee… right, Mitt Romney.
(Daily Caller) Utah Sen. Mitt Romney said Thursday that people are tired of politically motivated investigations such as Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson’s probe into Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas company linked to Hunter Biden…
…Johnson’s effort to issue the subpoena could be halted if Romney votes against the measure, CNN reported. Republicans hold eight seats on the committee to the six seats held by Democrats.
Raise your hand if you think rank and file Republicans, whose president has been under an unprecedented, non-stop series of politically motivated investigations for more than three years, aren’t chomping at the bit to open up on Obama/Clinton era corruption.
What Romney is really saying is he doesn’t want us to look at Ukraine or Burisma because…
(The Federalist) … According to web archives, top Mitt Romney adviser Joseph Cofer Black, who publicly goes by “Cofer Black,” joined Burisma’s board of directors while Hunter Biden was also serving on the board.
According to The New Yorker, Hunter joined Burisma’s board in April of 2014 and remained on it until he declined to renew his position this past May. Meanwhile, according to Burisma’s website, Black was appointed in February of 2017 and continues to serve on its board. The timelines would indicate that Black and Biden worked together at Burisma, and indeed, web archives from late 2017 show Black and Biden listed simultaneously on the board…
…It’s looking increasingly probable that Burisma, the subject of a series of corruption allegations in the past, has been smartly buying Western complacency by slapping a few famous names on its board.
Ukraine and Burisma had become a hotbed for money laundering and the purchase of political influence when Joe Biden was the pointman for then President Obama. The depth of that corruption is not yet known but it needs to be publicly uncovered.
Why would Romney oppose that? Unless…
Four decades of pay for play… and a phony impeachment to hide it… perhaps Romney got to wet his beak… nah!!!
