After his initial comments raised doubts as to whether he would vote to allow Republicans would be able to issue their first subpoena in the Biden-Burisma probe, Mitt Romney has decided to vote in favor of the subpoena, clearing the way for Committee chairman Ron Johnson.
Per CBS news, Utah Senator Mitt Romney has decided to vote in committee in favor of a subpoena involving Burisma, the Ukrainian gas firm with ties to Hunter Biden. The Senate Homeland Security Committee is investigating into Burisma and will be issuing subpoenas.
“Senator Romney has expressed his concerns to Chairman (Ron) Johnson, who has confirmed that any interview of the witness would occur in a closed setting without a hearing or public spectacle. He will therefore vote to let the chairman proceed to obtain the documents that have been offered,” a spokesperson for Romney told CBS News, referring to Committee Chairman Ron Johnson.
Romney’s support for the subpoena is significant, since he was the sole Republican senator to vote to convict Mr. Trump of the article of impeachment for abuse of power. House investigators alleged that President Trump acted improperly in asking the Ukrainian president to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of one of his political rivals, former Vice President Joe Biden.
The Washington Post’s James Hohmann joined Eric Shawn on Fox News to discuss how an investigation could play out in the presidential campaign.
