Sen. Mitt Romney is the first prominent Republican lawmaker to suggest that Donald Trump’s apparent effort to pressure Ukraine to dig up dirt on his political rival would be “troubling, in the extreme.”
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.

Romney has so far offered no suggestion as to how to ensure the facts “come out,” nor did he elaborate on what consequence should follow if Trump and Giuliani were found to have taken the actions they now publicly claim they have taken.
