After Romney Trash-Talks Trump-Ukraine Call, Former Adviser Exposed As Burisma Board Member

Failed Presidential candidate Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) has been talking a massive amount of trash about President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky – in which Trump urged his foreign counterpart to investigate claims that former Vice President Joe Biden abused his office to help his son, Hunter Biden. 

Notably, the younger Biden sat on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma – collecting $50,000 per month despite having no previous experience in the field, nor being an investor. His only qualification appears to have been a very connected daddy – who happened to threaten to withhold $1 billion in US loan guarantees unless Ukraine’s top prosecutor, who was investigating Burisma, was fired. 

After a ‘whistleblower’ filed a complaint over President Trump asking Zelensky to reopen the investigation into the Bidens – a phone call for which the transcript was released on Wednesday, Romney pounced

“I did read the transcript. It remains troubling in the extreme. It’s deeply troubling,” said Romney to reporters on Wednesday. “Clearly what we’ve seen from the transcript itself is deeply troubling.”

“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,” Romney tweeted, adding that it’s “Critical for the facts to come out.”

Interestingly, however – Romney’s 2012 national security adviser sits on the board of Burisma.

Well, this is certainly an odd coincidence! In fact, when you dig in, you find an amazing series of coincidences. If you believe in coincidences when the CIA is involved, that is.

Mitt Romney’s national security advisor in his 2012 campaign — a career CIA spook who rose to its top levels — sits on the board of directors of Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company that formerly paid Hunter Biden $50k a month despite his complete lack of credentials or qualifications.

And it also an odd coincidence that Mitt has as CNN puts it “been a lone Republican voice expressing concern about President Donald Trump’s July phone call with Volodymyr Zelensky in which Trump asked Ukraine’s President to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his family.”

Still more oddly coincidental is the background of Mitt’s adviser deep in the CIA, part of the intelligence community that has “six ways from Sunday” in foiling a mere president who might oppose them, according to Chuck Schumer.

Here are the specifics:

Back on October 6, 2011 presidential candidate Mitt Romney proudly announced that Joseph Cofer Black (listed as “Cofer Black”) was among the people chosen as “special advisers”

…to advise Governor Romney on foreign policy strategy, defense issues, intelligence matters, counterterrorism, and regional policy. These advisers will assist Governor Romney as he presents his vision for restoring American leadership in the world and securing our enduring interests and ideals abroad. 

Mr. Black brought to this role his extensive background at the CIA, which he joined in 1974 and trained for covert operations. He rose rapidly through the ranks, becoming Director of the National Counterterrorism Center from 1999-2002. Coincidentally, this was the time in which Al Qaeda planned and carried out the 911 attack without hindrance from the counterintelligence apparatus of the intelligence community. But Black was not penalized, he failed upward, being appointed Ambassador at Large and Coordinator for Counter-terrorism by President George W. Bush in December 2002.

And in yet another amazing coincidence, Black was succeeded in his job as Director of the National Counterterrorism Center by John Brennan.

Cofer Black left the CIA in 2006 (does anyone ever completely leave the CIA after being a spook?) to join Blackwater, the huge contractor for services related to military and intelligence action, where he served as vice chairman until 2008

Fast forward to February 2017, when Black joined the board of directors of Burisma6 months after the departure of Hunter Biden.

When dealing with spooks, politicians, and bigtime power politics, sometimes coincidences are not accidental. But of course nobody wants to be a conspiracy theorist.

      1. Pat .. don’t forget that, amongst the “republican” ranks in the US Senate, not too long ago, there also was that other backstabbing rino .. AZ’s own John McCain. And GOD only knows of how many other closeted cowardly rinos still lurk inside the conservatives. Other than the already known “never-trumpers”. Totally disgusting !.

        1. For two elections against Hussein Obama we had McCain and Romney, both were so weak that given the opportunity they would not take advantage of what they could use against him. Both times I had to go to the ballot box and vote for candidates I didn’t like, didn’t want to sit at home and the alternate sucked. Romney actually thinks that Republicans will vote for him the next time he makes a run for it…he is an idiot.

  1. Luke 8:17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.

    Mark 4:22 For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light.

    Matthew 10:26 So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.

    Time is at hand. Praise Father God.

  2. “Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to decieve” I think every Republican out there should find ONE Democrat to turn before it’s too late. Family member, co-worker, neighbor, old, young, doesn’t matter. Just one.

  3. Romney has embarrassed himself politically enough for two lifetimes. He is a globalist if the first kind. I voted for him to change the polarized environment in DC but doubt today he would have made a difference.

    1. This Mitt Romney is noting but another one of them self-serving treasonous pig. Just like the rest of the many thieving parasites and corrupt crooks who for many decades – like leeches – have been sucking the very life and blood of the people they claim they “represent and serve”. Just look at all of them arrogant pretentious frauds in today’s Congress .. those shameless thieves who’ve been making very “stupid deals” and have long managed to – literally – screw all of the hard working US taxpayers who’ve lost their jobs .. all because “our” blood-sucking scammers in Congress could care less about keeping – here in the USA – the manufacturers and companies that provide stable employment for our families that do have the desire to work . These parasites in Congress DO NOT get it. They’re too greedy and stupid to understand that the fact that our US American work-force, is the back-bone of our Nation. No, because a good many of them and wankers and whores .. treasonous parasites that they are, only think about securing themselves and the “interests” of their corresponding political parties. Cannot wait to see them all fall .. and , that they get what they deserve .. to die like traitors.

  4. Mitt RINO and the “America Last” never-Trumpers
    Would love to see America enter a socialist hell
    similar to Venezuela’s fate. Globalists disgust me.

    1. Agreed. A RINO is a Demonrat in disguise.
      He asked Trump for support, to keep his cheesy income train, and then turned around and stabbed him in the back.
      If a Demonrat opens it’s mouth, the odds are it’s a lie is near 100%.
      Demonrats go to ‘negotiate’ deals with other nations, and it seems they all get some kind of a kick-back, or “thankyou” compensation; all out of the American taxpayer’s pocket.
      The Obama/Clinton governing model is still alive and fighting tooth-and-nail to survive. The only way America will survive it’s demons is to vote them out of existence.
      If the name is on the Democrat ticket, avoid it like the plague; because that’s most-likely what you’ll get with that individual in office . . . If we don’t learn from history, we will forever repeat it!

    2. Say Mr. Robert Hughes, you have this correct! RHINO Mitt Romney And Progressive Liberal Demonrat Schiff have forgotten that The US President Is The Top US Diplomat, He Is Above The US SOS, In Conversing With Leaders Of Or To All Other Countries Around The World, About What Is ILLEGAL/LEGAL And Other Subject’s, End Of Story!

  5. As a new resident in NC on the Outer Banks in 2011, I volunteered in the Republican Party’s political office in support of Romney. I am a life time Republican and felt it was my duty to help them beat OBAMA. I am so sorry I supported Romney and voted for him, but now I see what a lying backstabber he is and has been to TRUMP. If he had stood up better to OBAMA we may have won that year, but he was weak and not able to defend himself or the country at that time

  6. I voted for “mistake” Romney when he ran for president as I thought he care about the USA. I we now he does not !!! He needs to declare himself as a socialist democrat or shut up & sit down! He does not have to like President Trump but he does have to see that the USA DOES NOT become a socialist/communist country !

  7. Apparently Jessie Waters found a treaty signed by Bill Clinton that addresses that very situation and the treaty, with Ukrine, is aimed at co operation between the two countries in the investigation of citizens of either countries that may be involved in corrupt or criminal behaviors. That makes anything that Trump did totally legal. Another lie blows up in the Commieonazi’s faces. Good-by impeachment.

  8. Is this motherfucker that stupid. I read the transcript and Trump just mentioned the Bidens in passing. No way did he ask or pressure Ukrain’s president to investigate the Bidens. Romney is so full of shit. The cocksucker should switch parties. He’s fucked up enough to make a good Democrat.

  9. Romney and McCain are both back stabbers to the Republican Party. May McCain RIP. As for Romney, he’s a fake Republican all the way. I believe he’s still pissed off at the people because he didn’t become president, just like Clinton. What’s wrong with looking in to corruption within the government? The Democrats have been looking into Trump shit for the last three years, now the foot is in the other shoes. My own believe, I think there is a lot of corruption in both parties.

  10. Romney is a disgrace republican. He belong in the democratic party. As a human being is one of the worst. He is greedy and self centered. Seems that he is only interested in economic gain. And he is dangerous too. A backstabber. Traitor to American values. I do not know about Mormon religion, but he is not a good example of them. If I were Mormon, I will be calling him out. President do not trust him!! MAGA.

  11. Romney it’s time for you to go back to Utah and go hide in the Wasatch Mts. and stay lost. You are no good to us in the Republican party. You’re a complete disgrace to us. You sound just like a dumbass democrat.
