Mitt Romney AKA Pierre Delecto on Thursday pushed back on the burgeoning probe into Burisma, asserting the GOP Senators’ investigation into Biden-Ukraine corruption “appears political.”
However, Romney on Friday decided he will vote next week in favor of a subpoena seeking Biden-Burisma docs.
Romney’s decision to vote in favor of subpoenas is surprising given his top advisor Joseph Cofer Black joined the board of Burisma Holdings while Hunter Biden was also serving on the board.
The GOP only has an 8-6 edge in the Committee so Romney could have blocked the subpoena if he decided to vote against the Republicans since a 7-7 tie is an automatic fail.
From colleague Jason Donner. Romney spox on issues Romney has w/Biden investigation. Says Romney "epressed his concerns to Chairman Johnson." I-views will be in private. "He will therefore vote to let the Chairman proceed to obtain the documents that have been offered.”

Senator Ron Johnson told reporters on Wednesday that Senate Republicans are entering a new phase of their investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden and their ties to a corrupt Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma.
Senator Johnson (R-WI) said he will likely release an interim report within the next month or two about his committee’s probe into the Biden crime family, Politico reported.
“These are questions that Joe Biden has not adequately answered,” Ron Johnson said. “And if I were a Democrat primary voter, I’d want these questions satisfactorily answered before I cast my final vote.”
It was reported Tuesday Senator Ron Johnson will be calling in Andrii Telizhenko to testify in front of the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
Andrii Telizhenko worked as a political officer in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington DC in 2015-2016.
Andrii Telizhenko spoke to The Gateway Pundit about the DNC-Russia collusion scandal back in December 2018.
The Gateway Pundit was the first publication to interview Telizhenko on his meetings with DNC operative Alexandra Chalupa in the Obama White House back in 2016.
Senators Johnson and Grassley have also requested Biden-Burisma docs from the Treasury Department, State Department and other agencies.
“In April 2014, Vice President Biden reportedly became the “public face of the administration’s handling of Ukraine.” Around the same time, the Vice President’s son, Hunter Biden, and his business associate, Devon Archer both began serving on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company,” the letter written by Grassley and Johnson stated, adding that Hunter was being paid as much as $30,000 per month (it was actually more).
Grassley and Johnson also stated that Joe Biden bragged about threatening to withhold a billion in aid from Ukraine if they didn’t fire Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor investigating Burisma.
“Well son of a bitch. He got fired,” Biden said of Viktor Shokin in 2018 to the Council on Foreign Relations.
