Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) tweeted that it would be “troubling in the extreme” if reports about President Donald Trump pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky into investigating Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, in Ukraine prove to be accurate.

Romney was the first Republican senator to demand additional information about the scandal.

In response to Romney’s inquiry, Trump tweeted a video of Romney’s 2012 general election loss to Barack Obama. The Twitter video also included footage of Trump’s victorious 2016 election.
