    “Senator Romney has expressed his concerns to Chairman Johnson, who has confirmed that any interview of the witness would occur in a closed setting without a hearing or public spectacle.”

    The office of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) confirmed he will vote to subpoena documents in the Senate Homeland Committee’s investigation into Hunter Biden and Burisma Holdings.

    Romney described the situation as “a politically motivated investigation.” Democrats claimed Johnson’s “request represented an abuse of power aimed at damaging a leading Democratic presidential contender.”

    From Fox News:

    “Senator Romney has expressed his concerns to Chairman Johnson, who has confirmed that any interview of the witness would occur in a closed setting without a hearing or public spectacle,” said Liz Johnson, Romney’s communications director. “He will therefore vote to let the Chairman proceed to obtain the documents that have been offered.”

    Republicans only have an 8-6 majority on the committee, so Romney was critical because a 7-7 tie would result in the vote failing. The Utah senator was already in hot water with President Trump’s base for being the only Republican to vote in favor of impeaching the president for seeking an investigation by Ukraine into the Bidens that could muddy up the 2020 presidential election.

    On Tuesday, Catherine Herridge at CBS News tweeted out Johnson’s letter about the subpoena.

    Johnson states in his letter to his colleague that he wants to subpoena Andrii Telizhenko, a former consultant for Blue Star Strategies and former Ukrainian diplomatic aide.

    Burisma hired Blue Star Strategies to fight against corruption charges.

    Johnson informed the senators the committee “has received U.S. government records indicating that Blue Star sought to leverage Hunter Biden’s role as a board member of Burisma to gain access to, and potentially influence matters at the State Department.”

    Telizhenko told the committee he would work with them in the investigation. Johnson pointed out that the Ukrainian “identified a limited subset of relevant records from his work with Blue Star that are responsive, but subject to a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in his employment contract.”

    You clearly declared yourself a RINO with your impeachment vote. This is far too little, far too late of an attempt to try and redeem yourself in the eyes of your colleagues. Disgusting.

      You would think that if you took the monumental step of becoming the first Senator in the History of the United States to vote to convict a President from your own Party — that President would at least be guilty. Romney deserve the opprobrium of every conservative.

    This totally destroys Mitt’s rationale for his impeachment vote.
