Former Romney Adviser Sits on Burisma Board of Directors, Americans Destroy Him

Mitt Romney has been stirring up trouble for President Donald Trump. A true GOP swamp dweller, the Utah Senator is openly supporting the Democrats in this Ukrainian scandal and in impeachment. Well, now it’s come to light his adviser and good friend was caught sitting on the board of Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian company Burisma. You don’t want to miss this.

Romney has been the lone GOP voice to trash President Trump when it comes to this Ukrainian scandal. “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,” CNN reports. 

It’s also from Romney’s staff that we get another Trump-bashing report. Mike Murphy, who was Mitt’s right-hand man for years, is playing dirty political games on Trump. “Mike Murphy claimed on Wednesday that he was told by a Republican senator that the majority of Republican senators ‘would vote to impeach’ President Donald Trump if they could do so anonymously,” Newsweek reports.

Why is Romney hellbent on trashing Trump over the Ukraine scandal? 

Well, it sure looks like Mitt is helping out a close friend. His Trump-bashing at this time isn’t a coincidence, according to the American Thinker.

“Mitt Romney’s national security adviser 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,” American Thinker reports.

The American Thinker, which first brought the story to light, noted it is “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.’”

In October 2011, Romney announced that Joseph Cofer Black, who had served in the CIA since 1974, had been selected as a special adviser.

“I am deeply honored to have the counsel of this extraordinary group of diplomats, experts, and statesmen,” Romney said at the time. “Their remarkable experience, wisdom, and depth of knowledge will be critical to ensuring that the 21st century is another American Century.”

Black trained for covert operations and eventually became the director of the National Counterterrorism Center from 1999 until 2002. After the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks perpetrated by al-Qaeda, Black was appointed ambassador at large and coordinator for counterterrorism in December 2002 by President George W. Bush.

Deep State rat John Brennan succeeded Black in his job as director of the National Counterterrorism Center.

According to the American Thinker, “Cofer Black left the CIA in 2006 to join Blackwater, the huge contractor for services related to military and intelligence action, where he served as vice-chairman until 2008.”

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

Americans sounded off on Mitt and his close friend’s link to Burisma. 

“The swamp is deep with all these bedfellows. Sad that we taxpayers fund all this corruption while we grow poor. Former Mitt Romney Adviser Sits on Burisma Board of Directors,” tweeted “SJ.”

Is @UtahGOP@GOP & @senatemajldr OK with that a sitting Sen @MittRomney‘s former adviser sits on Burisma board of directors that paid Hunter Biden $50 K a month! What is Mitt hiding? This is very troubling, we need an investigation into what Mitt knows & when he knew it!” tweeted “Tmac12830.”


Mitt Romney’s former advisor was on the board of directors of Burisma company. This would explain Rhino Romney’s fake outrage over the Ukrainian phone call. The D.C. swamp must be drained. Time for prosecutions! #Trump2020,” tweeted Brian Topping.

The Washington D.C. swamp is like an incestuous pool where crooks are all related to their dirty deeds, making millions in back-door deals and appointments. President Trump is not a part of their club and that’s why we elected him.

This is also called the “UniParty” where GOP and Democrats alike are all slapping each other on the back believing they are all masters of the universe. Joseph Cofer Black is part of the deep state rats alumni club who has his good buddy Mitt Romney acting in his best interests.

These swamp dwellers are a stain on our country and a scourage to the American people. God help President Trump as he fights them tooth and nail to drain the swamp so we can say once and for all: our country is free of corruption.
