Romney: Allegations "Made Through The Media" Of Trump's Ukraine Call "Very Serious"


Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) weighs in on a whistleblower claim involving a phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Reportedly, Trump threatened to withhold U.S. aid unless the nation investigated former President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden.

"The allegations that were made in the press are quite serious, and the question now is what exactly did happen?," Romney told NBC News reporter Geoff Bennett.

"The allegations that have been made through the media, from whatever sources the media has, are very serious," Romney also said Monday. "And to determine exactly what happened, it would be very helpful to receive the facts through the transcript of the conversation the president had, and I presume, also a discussion with the whistleblower."

Mitt Romney tweeted Sunday, "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."

President Trump responded to Romney's comments with a Twitter video replaying Romney's 2012 loss to President Obama and his victory in 2020.
