    Romney could derail Republican subpoena targeting Bidens

    A Republican effort to subpoena records about Joe Biden and his son Hunter could be derailed amid concerns from at least one GOP senator that the push appears politically motivated. The Senate Homeland Security Committee is set to vote next Wednesday on a subpoena for records from a Democratic public relations firm related to the panel’s investigation of conflict-of-interest allegations against the Bidens.

    But Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), a member of the panel, has hinted that he could vote against issuing the subpoena, noting the committee’s investigation might look political in nature given Biden’s resurgence and the increasing likelihood that he’ll become the Democratic presidential nominee.

    “There’s no question the appearance is not good,” Romney told reporters, adding that he is still “considering” his vote.

    Republicans hold a slim 8-6 majority, and if just one GOP senator joins all Democrats, it would mean a 7-7 tie that would result in a failure to issue the subpoena.

    Of course it's political. It's also mafia like.

    Poor Mitt, once a GOP candidate for President, now set to be torn apart by his own party because he refuses to kowtow in front of the alter of Trump.

    whats the matter....

    if there is nothing to hide.....

    isnt that what a LOT of you say about Trump and all the investigations surrounding him?

    seems like whats good for the goose is good for the gander....

    The fact that he may be the democratic nominee (or the president) has nothing to do with it, right?

    i mean, its not political in any way....its just doing what is right....

    isnt that what all of you were saying just a mere few months ago.....

    Mitt Romney has absolutely nothing on the line, he's not indebted to Trump for anything, he has no fear and he's a man of integrity. So what's to think about? He'll do the right thing.

    Be prepared, the knives will be out now. Joe Biden knows exactly what's coming his way, so does the entire democratic congress. They aren't intimidated.

    Where was Romney's outrage when the Democrats were conducting their political investigations?
    "My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate” ~ February 25, 2020 ~
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident,” said the former vice president. “All men and women created by the you know, you know the thing.”
