  • The Withholding of Ukraine Military Aid...

    A new report meticulously details the unrest in President Donald Trump’s administration during the time Trump ordered military aid be withheld from Ukraine until the country carried out investigations that would benefit Trump personally.

    On Sunday, the New York Times published a thorough account of the shock and consternation expressed by some officials who were ordered to carry out the scheme that ultimately led to Trump’s impeachment in December. The Times story brings together independent reporting ― including newly acquired emails ― and testimony from the House’s impeachment inquiry to depict a cleaved administration, in which some officials in various agencies helped Trump withhold aid from an ally in need and others expressed worry about the legality, morality and potential fallout of the effort.

    In one instance, the Times wrote that Defense Secretary Mark Esper, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former National Security Adviser John Bolton unsuccessfully tried to convince Trump to release the aid in a frank conversation that took place in the Oval Office.

    “This is in the interest of the country,” Bolton reportedly said, with Esper chiming in to convey the benefits that America derives from a strong Ukraine. But the Times said Trump was unmoved and continued to order officials in all three agencies to withhold the aid. Trump ultimately released the aid in September after news reports revealed that a whistleblower filed a complaint sounding the alarm.

        So childish, you do realize posting your memes all the time means you probably rely on social media for news?
        It's better to not post anything.
