Mitt Romney's decision to convict President Trump on the impeachment charge of abuse of power was "motivated by bitterness and jealousy," according to former Romney spokesman Rick Gorka, who added that President Trump has "accomplished what he [Mitt] has failed to do multiple times."

"These are the same people that hated Mitt in 2012 and they will hate him again when they are done with him," Gorka added. "

It is sad to see that Mitt has not learned the lessons from 2012. Now he has betrayed his Party and millions of voters."

While that's a good theory, at least a few people have been passing around this Federalist article from September, 2019 which notes that Romney adviser Cofer Black worked with Hunter Biden on the board of Ukrainian energy giant Burisma.

According to web archives, top Mitt Romney adviser Joseph Cofer Black, who publicly goes by “Cofer Black,” joined Burisma’s board of directors while Hunter Biden was also serving on the board.

According to The New Yorker, Hunter joined Burisma’s board in April of 2014 and remained on it until he declined to renew his position this past May. Meanwhile, according to Burisma’s website, Black was appointed in February of 2017 and continues to serve on its board. The timelines would indicate that Black and Biden worked together at Burisma, and indeed, web archives from late 2017 show Black and Biden listed simultaneously on the board. -The Federalist
