New Memo Has White House Budget Office Defending Ukraine Aid Delay As Both Legal And Routine

Published

A new memo has come out that has the White House Budget Office defending the delay of Ukraine military aid as an action that was both legal and fairly routine. The memo denies the Democratic Party’s allegations that what President Trump did by withholding the aid was an irregular abuse of power.

In the memo, the budget office laid out the reasons for why the aid was delayed as part of their response to an inquiry made by the Government Accountability Office. The withholding of the aid and the reasons behind this particular action is at the core of the House impeachment inquiry.

The aid delay was extended eight times throughout August and September before being released on Sept. 11 at the urging of Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). These delays, Paoletta wrote, were normal and fully within the authority of the White House.

“For decades, OMB has routinely used its apportionment authority to prevent funds from being used,” Paoletta wrote in the memo. “Often, in managing appropriations, OMB must briefly pause an agency’s legal ability to spend those funds for a number of reasons, including to ensure that the funds are being spent efficiently, that they are being spent in accordance with statutory directives, or to assess how or whether funds should be used for a particular activity.”

Trump and his allies have maintained that they had concerns over corruption in Ukraine, and whether aid sent to the nation would be used properly. The president also expressed displeasure with the level of contribution to Ukraine from European countries.

The impeachment efforts of Trump hating Democrats have tried desperately, over and over again, to put emphasis on the potential dangers the withholding of Ukrainian military aid had on our national security and to also paint up the whole thing as a scheme concocted by Trump to try and dig up dirt on a political rival.

They have continued to state that Trump withheld the aid as a means of applying pressure to President Volodymyr Zelensky to make a public announcement about investigations about the potential abuse of power committed by former Vice President Joe Biden in order to protect his son.

Man Arrested for Rape Is Let Out of Jail Over COVID-19, Then Murders the Woman He Raped

Still want to let criminals out?

Democrat policies made this unfortunate story possible. Liberal “leaders” won’t take any of the blame, though. Sure, the only person to commit a criminal act was Ibrahim Bouaichi, but he shouldn’t have been released from jail in the first place. Are Dems still cool with freeing bad people? From TDW: A Maryland man being held in a Virginia prison on rape charges was released over coronavirus concerns, then allegedly murdered his accuser, according to police. Police tracked down and found Ibrahim Bouaichi, 33, in Prince George’s County, Maryland, on Wednesday. Authorities sought Bouaichi in connection with the death of Karla Dominguez, who had accused Bouaichi of rape and testified against him in October, according to The Washington Post. CONTINUED: When police located Bouaichi, he fled in his car until he crashed. Police moving to arrest him found that he had apparently shot himself. Bouaichi remained in critical condition on Thursday. Partly on Dominguez’s testimony, Bouaichi was indicted on five felony charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction, and burglary. Bouaichi was held without bail in an Alexandria prison facility until April 9, when Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins ordered his release on a $25,000 bond.

If Rashida Tlaib was a Republican and got caught illegally distributing funds from a campaign, there would be calls for her immediate resignation. But she’s a Democrat – so it’s all good. Nothing to see here, says the left. From Fox News: Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been ordered to repay $10,800 to her campaign committee to account for the salary she had paid herself from her campaign coffers after she had been elected to Congress in 2018. The bipartisan House Ethics Committee found the Michigan Democrat’s violation “was one of bad timing and not ill intent.” The committee ordered her to pay $10,800 of the $17,500 she received from her campaign in 2018. Congressional candidates are allowed to draw paychecks from their campaigns, but payments are only allowed during an active candidacy. Continued: “The committee did not find that she sought to unjustly enrich herself by receiving the campaign funds at issue,” the committee wrote Friday. “Indeed, during her campaign, Representative Tlaib received a conservative amount of campaign funds, well below the legal threshold for the maximum amount of salary she was eligible to receive; these payments allowed her to forego her salary from her full-time employment so that she could fully participate in campaign activities.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1245428215751065602?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245428215751065602&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F04%2F01%2Frep-rashida-tlaib-reminds-us-the-covid-19-pandemic-is-exposing-structural-racism-in-the-us%2F REACTIONS:
