‘Troubling in the extreme’? Boy, howdy!

U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, put a tweet out today that said the following …

If the President asked or pressured Ukraine’s president to investigate his political rival, either directly or through his personal attorney, it would be troubling in the extreme. Critical for the facts to come out.

Gosh. Do ya think?

Donald Trump, quite naturally, is pushing back on reports that he and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, asked the Ukrainians to look for dirt involving former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, who reportedly has business dealings with a Ukrainian oligarch.

Yes, it is critical to get all the facts, as Sen. Romney has stated. Romney is trying to be fair by waiting for the facts. I accept that. I, too, want to know all the facts. Where I differ from the freshman senator — and former Republican presidential nominee — is that I get to state what I believe … which is that I believe Trump did what has been alleged.

Trump’s propensity for lying makes it difficult for me to assume he’s being truthful when he says a whistleblower is conducting “another witch hunt.” What’s more, it was Mitt Romney himself who said in 2016 that Trump is a “phony … a fraud.” Yep, Mitt was right then.

Look, let’s get to the facts at hand. Let’s find out what Trump did, what he said and to whom he said it.

Let us also not be bullied by Trump’s assertion that it’s just another witch hunt. There hasn’t been a witch hunt to this point. There have been serious investigations.

The next one ought to reveal whether Trump is telling the truth, that he didn’t do what has been alleged.

I am not willing to wager that he can tell the truth about this or anything!
