Romney: ‘Looking into Burisma and Hunter Biden Appears Political’

Posted on 4 Comments

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said the GOP subpoena tied to former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden and Ukrainian gas company Burisma “appears political.”

“There’s no question but that the appearance of looking into Burisma and Hunter Biden appears political, and I think people are tired of these kind of political investigations,” Romney told reporters on Thursday. “I would hope that if there is something of significance that needs to be evaluated, that it would be done by perhaps the FBI or some other agency that is not as political or perhaps a committee of our body. We also have a lot to work to do.”

On Wednesday, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee said he is planning to force a committee vote next Wednesday on the first subpoena into his multi-pronged investigation. Part of his investigation is tied to Hunter Biden’s work with Burisma and if the work constituted a conflict of interest given the former Vice President work on Ukraine during the Obama administration.

Johnson is looking to first subpoena Andrii Telizhenko, a former consultant for Blue Star Strategies, a U.S. firm that has ties to Burisma Holdings. In the letter sent to committee members, Telizhenko said he will “cooperate fully” but is limited by a nondisclosure agreement.

Romney, a member of the Senate Homeland Security committee didn’t comment if he would vote for the subpoena. 

“I am gonna get the chance today to talk to the chairman to get his perspective, see what information he has and see whether there is something that might be helpful to clarify exactly what has happened in the past and put this behind us,” Romney responded when asked if he support the subpoena. “I will make that decision after I had the chance to meet with the chairman and see what information he has.”

Republicans hold an 8-6 majority on the committee. If Romney votes “no,” it would result in failing to pass and issue the subpoena.

Romney is a spineless wimp. He does not belong in our federal government as President, Senator, or Representative. Nor does he belong in the state or local government anywhere. The people of Utah need to recall him now because he is continuing to damage our government. For him to not vote to subpoena Hunter Biden effectively eliminates the Senate’s investigation of potential crimes. It is sort of funny because Hunter is being indicted in Ukraine. That it may reflect on Joe should not be of any consequence because running for President does not give you a free pass when you… Read more »
