Non-partisan federal agency says Trump broke law by withholding Ukraine military aid

President Donald Trump
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A non-partisan federal agency says President Donald Trump broke the law by withholding Ukraine military aid last year as part of allegations of a quid pro quo to force the European nation to dig up dirt on Joe Biden.

The Office of Management in a report released this week says that:

“In the summer of 2019, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) withheld from obligation funds appropriated to the Department of Defense (DOD) for security assistance to Ukraine. In order to withhold the funds, OMB issued a series of nine apportionment schedules with footnotes that made all unobligated balances unavailable for obligation.

“Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law. OMB withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act (ICA). The withholding was not a programmatic delay. Therefore, we conclude that OMB violated the ICA.”

U.S. House of Representative Democrats allege – and have impeached President Trump – in connection to the withholding of these vital military aid funds to Ukraine, a former Soviet republic that needs the money to fight Russian aggression and expansion. Democrats allege that Trump used the military aid withholding as part of a scheme to force the Ukraine government to only announce an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading contender for the Democratic nomination for President. Dem’s say Trump didn’t care whether possible corruption was actually investigated; he merely wanted the announcement of an investigation to make Biden look bad and aid his 2020 re-election campaign.

The U.S. Senate has been delivered the Articles of Impeachment, where the matter will be tried. There was no word on any possible outcome from the OMB announcement that Trump broke a law.

In a twist of irony, the Interior Ministry of Ukraine announced this week a criminal investigation into possible surveillance of a former US Ambassador, Marie Yovanovitch. It is claimed people linked to President Trump had her followed and spied upon.

propaganda to keep the goy engaged in the deception –

Let the No Crimes No Misdemeanor SINGLE Party Only Impeachment Begin just like Our Founding Fathers envisioned…SHAMEFUL….People wonder WHY Millions like ME feel the ONLY solution is a 2nd Civil War to make America Great & FIX this Country. Not like the Socialist & Communist or Blue State & District Democrats will stop as THEY Believe it like ISIS Terrorist do the Korhan.

Have you noticed that his ‘defense’ team is not disputing the facts? Instead they are focusing on the procedure because they know he did what he was accused of

Please Spay or Neuter your Democrat!

In 2016 Trump said: I KNOW THE BEST PEOPLE. IN 2020: I DO NOT KNOW ANY OF THESE PEOPLE.

Next they will claim that the Washington Post, NY Times, Globe Gazette (what joke not really a newspaper) are all non-partisan, too. Bahahaha!

You don’t have anyone to talk to, do you? You post these random thoughts without any reference to what you are talking about and expect someone to understand your thoughts. Not gonna happen.

You are doing quite well with it

This one makes about as much sense as your first one.

you Trumpsters still didn’t see the light, make all kinds of excuses for Donnie, but then you arnt any smarter then he is

I hope all you know that the attack on President Trump is to cover up all the corruption by Biden. Between the Bush’s Obama, Clintons, Biden, Comey, Brennan, Clapper, (and the list goes on), they think that while they are in power what they do can’t be questioned. Wrong!

I get why Trump wanted Ukraine to look into the corruption that the Democrats were trying to hang him with, who wouldn’t? The Democrat’s involvement with the corrupt Deep State is obvious for anyone that wants to face reality. The Democrats should want Ukraine, Biden, and corrupt FISA’s warrants and spying looked into and laws passed to stop it. I know I do.

Sad all the politics that are preventing this to be investigated and a stopped!!!

At this point, the whole Impeachment thing is nothing more than a dog and pony show!

Trump didn’t want Ukraine to investigate Biden. He wanted the President of Ukraine to announce an investigation…nothing else. Announcing it would put Biden in a bad spot while actually investigating him would prove there was no wrong-doing because what he did was follow the directives of our government and our allies. The entire deal was investigated and found legit. Besides Trump tried to blackmail them into investigating the deal by withholding aid to Ukraine that had already been approved. Trump is a crook and a bad one at that. He thinks he is above the law and that he can do whatever he wants to do because he is the President. He ok’d spying on the US ambassador to Ukraine and will be found complicit in ordering her assassinated-unsuccessfully, but nevertheless, an attempt. It’s all there in the evidence and, unfortunately, the Republicans in Congress will assist him in his crimes.

Another stretch of the immagination! You liberal numbskulls shoot from the hip hopping you can bring the most successful President in the last several decades down. Why do you hate this country so much?

I am not “hopping” anything. I might be hoping but hopping is not in my skill set. I take issue with the “most successful President in decades”. He was successful at getting impeached. He got the best impeachment.

You talk silly

Trump Derangement Syndrome!

NIXON: I am above the law! TRUMP: I AM THE LAW!

The only mention of withholding from the Ukraine came from Biden. He threatened to withhold aid unless his son got a job.

That is a flat out lie.

No its not a lie.

Prove it then you moron.

Hello? They have Quid Pro Quo Creepy Biden on video bragging about it.
Are you deranged or what?

He threatened to withhold aid if the government of Ukraine refused to fire a corrupt prosecutor. His son was already on the board and Biden was asked to make it clear to the Ukraine government that Shokin had to go by the US government and our allies. You don’t understand that and I guess with a 6th grade education, you wouldn’t.

Bullshit, read the transcript if you can read, if not find a conservative to read it to you, you are a idiot.

I have read the ‘transcript’ – do you know that this ‘transcript’ is not a verbatim report of what was said? It is the recollection and notes of people who were there. The actual transcript has not been released. Hunter Biden was placed on the board of Burishma in 2014. Joe Biden made the statement about withholding aid in 2016. Is this clear to you? If not, here is some math 2016-2014= 2. Quit hiding behind your ignorance and come out of the closet as a dumb ass.

Yes, there have been comments removed. That is strange..

Strange, lot of comments have been taken down. why?

MARKIE does not like bad comments being posted about his butt buddy Trump!

*Rudy Giuliani’s former associate Lev Parnas recently claimed to have personal knowledge that Trump had tried to coerce Ukraine into investigating Joe and Hunter Biden for his own political benefits by threatening to withhold military aid. It jump started the impeachment inquiry against Trump, which is now officially in the Senate trial stage. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko doesn’t buy any of it. “I never spoke with this individual,” Prystaiko told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Friday. “And, again, frankly, I don’t trust any word he is now saying.” No quid pro quo, he added, was “ever mentioned in any of those conversations.”

Like Guiliani said, “believe him at your own peril.” The man thinks he is a friend of Trump’s. If you believe that I have a bridge to sell you!

Of course he said that. What was he supposed to say – He is telling the truth?

Non-Partisan Office Of Management? Really?

When was the last time the Office Of Management objected to any government spending? And now all of a sudden they complain about the President wanting to make sure that known corruption in Ukraine is cleaned up before we turn over tax dollars.

As far as I am concerned the President was doing his job and acting in the best interest of the United States.

The Deep State is very wide and very deep. This is just one more example of the appointed elite who don’t give two cents about the American Taxpayers!

More left wing bullshit. The Impeachment will be dismissed and Pelosi Nadler and Schitt will be indicted for abuse of power.

Hahahahaha
