Pierre Dellicto has decided to vote to convict Donald Trump,
The president is guilty of an appalling abuse of public trust. What he did was not perfect. No, it was a flagrant assault under electoral rights, our national security and our fundamental values, he declared.after much handwringing and a consultation with God
I swore an oath before God to exercise impartial justice. I am profoundly religious. My faith is at the heart of who I am. I take an oath before God as enormously consequential, said the senator.I dont believe that for a second.
Lots of theories have coursed through the internet as to why Romney would take this action.
Thats very reasonable. But heres a biggie. Mitts former campaign national security adviser is on the Board of Directors or Burisma, of Hunter Biden fame.
Seems that Burisma wanted to buy influence with more than just Joe Biden.
Joseph Cofer Black, a national security adviser for the 2012 Mitt Romney campaign, sits on the board of directors of Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian oil and gas giant that paid at times more than $83,000 per month to Hunter Biden, former Vice President Joe Bidens youngest son. The American Thinker, which first brought the story to light, noted it is an odd coincidence that Mitt has as CNN puts it been a lone Republican voice expressing concern about President Donald Trumps July phone call with Volodymyr Zelensky in which Trump asked Ukraines President to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his family.
In October 2011, Romney announced that Black, who had served in the CIA since 1974, had been selected as a special adviser.
I am deeply honored to have the counsel of this extraordinary group of diplomats, experts, and statesmen, Romney said at the time. Their remarkable experience, wisdom, and depth of knowledge will be critical to ensuring that the 21st century is another American Century.
Romney did get Schiffs endorsement. Then again, Trump is more popular in Utah than is Romney.
Now lets crank up the Wayback Machine to 2016 and see what Romney had to say about Trump:
Romney is no Amazing Kreskin
But when he ran for the Senate in 2014 Romney sought and got Trumps support
And how does Romney repay that support?
.@MittRomney has announced he is running for the Senate from the wonderful State of Utah. He will make a great Senator and worthy successor to @OrrinHatch, and has my full support and endorsement! Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 20, 2018
Stab Trump in the back. It is vintage Romney.

Mitt Romney is a boil in Need of a lancing. STAT
Whoever runs against this m******r I will send them all the money that I possibly can and beg friends and family to do the same
I hope he suffers 3rd degree burns in hell...
How is this possibly going to help Romney?
He now guarantees his loser status for ever more.
Someone has to take over for Juan McLame.
Romney is neck-deep in Burisma, just like Biden and Kerry and the rest.
Be afraid, Willard. Be very afraid.
What a scum-sucking lowlife piece of garbage. Now, more than ever, my conscience is clear for not having voted for him in 2012. The people of Utah should be ashamed of themselves for putting this grifter in the Senate.
Sadly. I have Leftist friends who are pining for more McLames in the R party and are very happy that Mitt is there to pick up the slack.
Oh, come on, it’s Pierre DELECTO, not “Dillecto”.
Stopped reading right there. Next time get the guy’s name right, okay?
What a weasel. No one buys his profoundly religious excuse.
In that balance sheet he runs in his mind, a little bit of the spite that Mitt Romney has for President Donald J. Trump has just been assuaged. But out here in the real world, Romney did himself no favors, and has burned the brand of shame just a little deeper on his forehead, a mark that shall not go away.
At one time, Mitt Romney, running against Ted Kennedy for Senator from Massachusetts, was taking positions to the LEFT of Ted, a hard position to maintain. Got beat anyway.
Romney...Man of Character? Hmmmm .....does it show good character to acquire control of companies, load the companies up with debt, take tens and hundreds of millions of dollars from those companies and then abandon them to bankruptcy with the loss of thousands of jobs and careers?
Yeah, that shows character, you despicable human being.
Its true that Romney is bitter, hateful and jealous. However he is also corrupt. He was part of the Burisma corruption cabal. He was involved as were Biden, Pelosi, Kerry and Schiff. When the cabal is investigated, indicted and convicted, they will whine that they are the victims of a vindictive Trump.
Don’t believe that conscience and religion crap. The guy is a narcissist and nothing more.
FU Mutt Romney!
His faith in Joseph Smith’s con job defines who he is.
Trump endorsed both Romney and McCain.
He really does have to stop endorsing Bush League Republicans.
Its what a Mormon does.
