Predictably, Romney Sides With the Democrats on Impeachment

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Campaign Update hates to say it told you so, but, well, it told you so. –  To the surprise of literally no one who has paid attention to his mendacious machinations to position himself to seek the 2020 GOP presidential nomination in the event of the ultimate removal of President Trump in this latest Deep State coup effort, Mitt Romney on Friday issued a series of tweets which for all intents and purposes put him in direct league with San Fran Nan and the Munchkin caucus in the House of Representatives:

You regular readers of Today’s Campaign Update already expected the 2012 loser Romney to make his next move, since we laid it all out for you in the Campaign Update for September 26. Seeking an opening to move into the mix for the 2020 nomination is the very reason why Romney sought retiring Senator Orrin Hatch’s open Utah senate seat in the first place in 2018.

The disloyal RINO believes his time has come with San Fran Nan’s fake impeachment circus, but let’s analyze what he says in his tweets through the lens of reality.

First, there’s this:

“When the only American citizen President Trump singles out for China’s investigation is his political opponent in the midst of the Democratic nomination process, it strains credulity to suggest that it is anything other than politically motivated.”

Ok, so which other American citizen worked with his ne’er-do-well son to implement a blatantly obvious pay for play scheme to leverage his high government office in recent years? I mean, other than Hillary Clinton, that is. I can’t think of any other high official accused of such shenanigans as they relate to China, although we now know it is likely San Fran Nan has been doing the same thing with her own son and Ukraine.

Is the junior Senator from Utah suggesting that the sitting POTUS has no obligation to root out corruption in the U.S. government, whether it is current or in the recent past? Surely no man of God, which Romney piously claims to be, would hold such a belief.

Ok, then, is Romney suggesting that any Democrat who fears being investigated for corruption can obtain immunity by simply declaring his or her candidacy for the 2020 Democrat nomination? If that’s the legal principle this jackass is endorsing, imagine how many former DOJ/FBI/CIA officials – not to mention the Pantsuit Princess – will be lining up to file their papers with the FEC in the coming days.

Then there’s this:

“By all appearances, the President’s brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling.”

Is the junior Senator simply unaware that the United States of America has anti-corruption treaties with both China and Ukraine, treaties that obligate both nations to perform full and complete investigations of allegations of corrupt acts by one anothers’ citizens in their countries when these kinds of allegations arise? Those are treaties entered into by previous presidential administrations, not this one.

Also, has the junior Senator simply never heard of this thing called the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a law enacted in 1977, when Democrat James Earl Carter was president? Here is DOJ’s official description of that law:

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended, 15 U.S.C. §§ 78dd-1, et seq. (“FCPA”), was enacted for the purpose of making it unlawful for certain classes of persons and entities to make payments to foreign government officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business. Specifically, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA prohibit the willful use of the mails or any means of instrumentality of interstate commerce corruptly in furtherance of any offer, payment, promise to pay, or authorization of the payment of money or anything of value to any person, while knowing that all or a portion of such money or thing of value will be offered, given or promised, directly or indirectly, to a foreign official to influence the foreign official in his or her official capacity, induce the foreign official to do or omit to do an act in violation of his or her lawful duty, or to secure any improper advantage in order to assist in obtaining or retaining business for or with, or directing business to, any person.

Since 1977, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA have applied to all U.S. persons and certain foreign issuers of securities. With the enactment of certain amendments in 1998, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA now also apply to foreign firms and persons who cause, directly or through agents, an act in furtherance of such a corrupt payment to take place within the territory of the United States.

[End]

The allegation related to Ukraine where Hunter Biden is concerned is that he was given a cushy, high-paying seat on the board of directors of a Ukraine gas company even though he held zero expertise in the energy world. Thus, the allegation is that the $50k/month he received was simply a bribe in exchange for access to his Vice President dad, who also happened to be Barack Obama’s point man on Ukraine policy.

The allegation related to China is that Hunter Biden’s investment firm – created right after his Dad became Vice President – took billions in fees from Chinese businesses in exchange for similar access to Dear ol’ Dad.

Given this blatant, transparent pay to play operation, and Joe Biden’s bragging about getting a Ukraine prosecutor who was investigating Hunter’s shenanigans fired, President Trump could legitimately be accused of dereliction of duty if he did NOT ask the Ukrainian and Chinese governments to investigate the matters.

Thus, the Junior Senator from Utah is in fact advocating the President break the law and ignore his oath of office.

What a despicable – and entirely predictable – thing for the 2012 loser to do.

That is all.

    It seemed forever ago Romney was fighting off criticisms of his “Binders full of women” he had hired in his business. Remember when THAT was what upset the libs? Now he is jumping in with them on FAR more serious allegations (albeit baseless, as described above) against Trump, a member of his own party. Or is he really a Republican? He’s so squishy its hard to tell anymore. He’s like a pond reed; bending in whatever direction the wind is blowing. I mean, really…just be quiet, why help the clown car at all?

    So if Biden succumbs to the pressure of his situation with his kid and Ukraine, and Hildabeast jumps in (probably what she’s waiting for), we’ll essentially be substituting one front-runner with multiple failed attempts at POTUS for another with multiple failed attempts at POTUS….how pathetic.

      Also dingy (and fellow Mormon) Harry Reid’s made up friend’s phony “Romney didn’t pay his taxes” lie that severely damaged Mitt’s 2012 chances. After Mitts loss and the “exoneration” of Mitt regarding his nonpayment of taxes, Dingy Reid was asked if he had any regrets slandering the character of a “fine” man. His reply was: We (Obama) won, didn’t we…”

    Let’s have a hypothetical matchup between Deep State Suck-up Mittens Romney and the fake Indian princess Lieawatha: who would I vote for, (if Trump is somehow removed, and if we don’t have a bloody, violent civil war?)

    #1, Lieawatha is not – at present – Deep State. That may change, because the unprincipled Princess would sell grannie to the gator farm for a position of power.

    #2. Mittens is ONLY Deep State, and was chosen for his…moral flexibility. He could never be anything BUT Deep State; he hasn’t the backbone to be anything else.

    #3. Mark “Reptilian Overlord” Zuckerberg sees Lieawatha as an “existential threat” to his fraud and deceit (in other words, Facebook.) Big Tech hates and fears her. That’s a selling point.

    #4. Lieawatha is hated by the crook-sector on Wall Street and the crooks in the Deep State. (She is also hated by most men and most women, because she resembles everyone’s first wife, and to women, she resembles nosy neighbor Gladys Kravitz AND Endora from Bewitched all at the same time.)

    She is problematic, to say the least, no less for her positions on energy. Big problem. But Mitt would sell us out to foreign energy, because he’s a betrayer.

    But.
    I’d rather vote for Lieawatha than a spineless, yellow, cowardly, treasonous, stupid, venal, envious jellyfish like Mitt Romney than someone who can be thwarted by an increasingly Conservative Republican party, a judiciary which has been set rightward for decades and a public which will NOT allow itself to be disarmed.

      Also Romney was part and parcel to the creation of “Romneycare” in Mass. when he was a “conservative” governor; it was Obamacare’s older cousin.

      Under no circumstance would I ever vote for Romney again.

        I didn’t vote for him the first time. He actually wants to lead the Mormons in a rebellion against the USA, can’t forget past history, and make Utah and Las Vegas it’s own nation.

      Two votes for POTUS I’d take back: votes for McLame and for Mittsy.
      Only voted for McLame because of Palin, for Mitt the Mutt because I was foolish.

      No Establishment Repos ever again. Will not fall for the “lesser of two evils” lie.

      Trump has restored my confidence in…Trump.

        Palin was the only reason I voted FOR McLame.

        She was and is a fine person; she was used and screwed by McLame and the GOP and the media and was also extensively harassed (er, investigated) as gov. of Alaska and essentially driven from office for no reason – she got the Trump Treatment before Trump.

        No other governor has been investigated so severely before or since and NONE of them in any state could have withstood such scrutiny as she endured. Remember all her gov. emails were scoured and investigated for no reason and she was found to be squeaky clean.

        I still want to know about a certain 33,000 official gov. emails that were deleted AFTER being subpoenaed by a certain Sec. of State who served in a DEMOCRATIC ADMINISTRATION!

        And I’m sorry to hear she is having marriage problems.

        I also voted AGAINST the 0

      Sadly me too in 2012. In retrospect I’m very glad he lost to the O.

        Does Utah’s state constitution allow for the recall of Federally elected politicians? Some states allow for only state elected pols.

        If yes I would gladly donate to a legitimate recall effort. But I doubt it would succeed because the 3Ms (Moron Mormon Machine) got him elected in the first place and the 3Ms will keep him in power, just like McLame’s machine kept him in power in AZ

    Mittsie’s “national security” advisor: (thanks, JT Jones)
    Joseph Cofer Black.

    Stupid fellow, actually, or he would have advised Mittsie the silly puppy not to allow himself to be “read-in” during the campaign, which kept Mittsie from using salient points against Barack Haman Obama. When Mittsie the silly puppy won the first debate, they then took away all his ammunition.

    Black should have advised him to stay away from the briefings. Idiot(s.)

    Now it appears that Mittsie the silly puppy has some issues.
    What’s in YOUR wallet, Mittsie?

    I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the prevalence and severity of human rights abuse and corruption that have their source, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States, such as those committed or directed by persons listed in the Annex to this order, have reached such scope and gravity that they threaten the stability of international political and economic systems. Human rights abuse and corruption undermine the values that form an essential foundation of stable, secure, and functioning societies; have devastating impacts on individuals; weaken democratic institutions; degrade the rule of law; perpetuate violent conflicts; facilitate the activities of dangerous persons; and undermine economic markets. The United States seeks to impose tangible and significant consequences on those who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption, as well as to protect the financial system of the United States from abuse by these same persons. I therefore determine that serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.

    Corruption. Outside the United States. Ukraine.

    Movie: “Meet Joe Black”

    Using PEO 13818, a lot of people should have their funds sequestered, bank accounts seized. Just sayin’.

    As Rudy stated: when the prosecutor was fired, two other investigations ceased, including one on Soros. Accidental?

    Joe Black wasn’t in the Directorship until after the Biden corruption happened, but one has to wonder what role he plays/played, especially with his connection to Squish Romney and possibly Hysterical John Brennan. I’m guessing this will come out in the near future.

    Sméagol: the longer you bluff with a bad hand, the more money you put in the pot, the more you have to lose.
    Even AOC is running away from impeachment! Romney is too stupid to realize that he’s being left to hold the cards and will have to put more money in the pot if he wishes to continue the game. Very costly, Mittsie! Very.
