Trump administration broke the law on Ukraine aid, says watchdog

A Congressional watchdog, the Government Accountability Office, said Thursday that the Trump administration violated federal law last year by withholding security aid for Ukraine. ’Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law’, the GAO report read.

so when Biden withheld aid because Ukraine's prosecutor general was going to investigate his son, that's okay and not a quid pro quo.

Too bad the house never charged him with any statutory crime.

so I guess it doesn't matter that the President of Ukraine said there was no quid pro quo? And I still say the term quid pro quo sounds stupid.

So how did Biden have authority to withhold aid if a prosecutor wasn't immediately fired? Riddle me that one BatMan.

The President has immense latitude when it comes to foreign policy, and that includes the giving or withholding of aid. That being said, the aid was released and no new investigation into the Bidens was started. Why are we still talking about this?

If this supposedly happened in 2019 why were they trying to impeach well before that? Not shady all.

According to GOA's own records, Obama broke the law 41 times, Bush broke the law 32 times. None of those were ever rose to the level of mpeachment and neither should Trumps actions.

Then charge him. If you think he broke a law and have sufficient evidence then bring charges otherwise STFU and GTFO with that bullshit.

Been telling you guys Trump is the swamp, yet look at all these idiots defending him. A threat to democracy. He withheld aid for POLITICAL self interests, based on zero evidence (still waiting for evidence to come up that warrants an official investigation dimwits). Rudy was spying on Ukraine Ambassador, and his minions said Trump was in the loop of it all. And apparently Barr involved too, lol what a shit show. Trump said he was Mr. Law and Order, what a fucking joke. Most corrupt swamp ever, still can’t stand how many lobbyists he appointed into government. You guys defending him aren’t real conservatives and swamp as well. Enabling a threat to our democracy.

If u understood the laws u would grasp that he did break the very law passed by congress in the seventies... N no he doest have executive discretion to withhold public tax moniesear marked by congress n then certified to be given to Ukraine.. Congress holds by constitution authority the power of the purse.. It's y he can't just money on walls unless he gets courts OK.. Not being mean it's just a fact... N ur gop house failed him miserably in impeachment debates.. They should have opted to broker for a censure.. N they have mislead u in a tribal effort to snow u n force ur support blindly..
