Mitt Romney is Donald Trump’s latest critic when it comes to his mysterious and controversial Ukraine phone call.
“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,” Romney, who is now a senator for Utah, wrote.

But Romney admits he’s taking a shot at the president without knowing any of the facts.
On top of Romney, President Trump has faced heavy criticism from the left when it comes to the phone call in question. After a whistleblower complaint about the phone call was revealed, Dem lawmakers immediately started their usual chorus lines about impeachment and useless House investigations.
But like Romney, facts to them are meaningless.
A top Ukrainian official has even stepped forward to say the phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy was completely appropriate.
“I know what the conversation was about and I think there was no pressure,” Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko told the Hromadske media outlet. “There was talk, conversations are different, leaders have the right to discuss any problems that exist. This conversation was long, friendly, and it touched on many questions, sometimes requiring serious answers.”
Trump has also defended himself from critics and said he was not looking for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden — as some claim — but he was rather speaking about how the corruption displayed by people like Biden is something that should not exist in government.
That alleged corruption is being completely ignored by the media — and Romney.
Biden has been accused of leveraging favor when it comes to his son Hunter’s overseas business dealings. What makes the former vice president more suspicious is that he recently said he has never spoken to his son about his overseas business dealings, but that contradicts a statement his son previously made saying he has had at least one conversation with his father on the topic.
“This is a very dishonest thing that Joe Biden did and then he said he never spoke to his son,” Trump said on Sunday to reporters.
He continued, “But what he said is that he wouldn’t give, I think, it was billions of dollars to Ukraine unless they fired the prosecutor who was looking at his son and his son’s company, the company that his son worked with, and that’s a very dishonest thing. And I’m not looking to hurt Biden or even looking to hold him to it, to be honest, but he said a very bad thing.”
Biden has meanwhile tried to capitalize on the phone call and said he supports a House investigation into the call.
