Romney out front of GOP with criticisms of Trump's Ukraine call, but signs emerge that he's not alone

(CNN)For days, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney had 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.

Romney came to Washington promising to speak out against the President when the time called for it. Days ago, he became the first prominent elected Republican to convey his dismay about Trump asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to dig up dirt on Biden, one of Trump's political rivals for the White House, and Biden's son at a time when Trump was withholding aid to Ukraine.
There is no evidence of wrongdoing by either Joe Biden or Hunter Biden.

There were some signs on Wednesday evening that other Republican voices, including on GOP senator who had read the whisteblower complaint in a secure setting, that Romney may no longer be alone in his concerns.

Romney stood his ground on Wednesday after reading the call summary of the discussion between Trump and Zelensky.
"My reaction was the same as (the one) I had a few days ago, which is -- this remains deeply troubling," Romney said during an interview at The Atlantic Festival on Wednesday. "We'll see where it leads, but the first reaction is troubling."


Do it Romney! Turn against Trump. Also Ben Sasse, Pat Toomey, Rob Portman, maybe more. Let's see some backbone if there are any real Republicans left. Do it Susan Collins, or you're finished.

5. I'm looking for election issues to use against them

This is history in the making, and they need to be on the record for which side they are on when the history books are written.

7. He doesn't want to encroach on Susan Collins' territory. Otherwise, he might even

express concern.
