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

Published

on

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.

WATCH: Biden Refers to Horn-Honking Pro-Trump ‘Folks’ As ‘Ugly’ At Minnesota Rally

Ain’t he something!?

Joe Biden is still campaigning, apparently. Still speaking gibberish. Still hating on America. If rally crowd size is any indication, Biden is going to lose big on November 3. Until then, here’s the former vice president referring to pro-Trump protesters as “ugly.” From Fox News: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden jabbed at a group of Trump supporters who honked their horns at a campaign stop in Minnesota, while he attempted to detail his plans to combat the coronavirus pandemic on Friday night. Biden spoke over the noise throughout his speech at the drive-in rally in St. Paul. The former vice president ripped the Trump administration’s handling for the pandemic and appeared to grow irritated when the horn-honking interrupted his explanation for supporting a nationwide mask mandate. “Dr. Fauci called for a mask mandate last week,” Biden said. “This isn’t a political statement like those ugly folks over there beeping the horns. This is a patriotic duty, for God’s sake.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RNCResearch/status/1322305326188777473?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1322305326188777473%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-biden-refers-to-horn-honking-trump-supporters-as-ugly-folks-while-promoting-bringing-the-country-together WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1313200566550564864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1313200566550564864%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-joe-biden-telling-voters-to-think-about-trump-being-given-the-death-blow-while-still-in-hospital%2F REACTIONS:

Kamala Harris: First Thing Joe & I Do Will Be to ‘Work to Get Rid of That Tax Cut’

Is this what the people want, Harris?

Vice President Kamala Harris. Has a pretty awful ring to it, no? If things don’t go America’s way on November 3, it could most certainly become a reality. On the to do list in a Biden administration, you know, other than using the Constitution as a Swiffer pad? How about raising taxes? Sound good to you? From Breitbart: The cuts practically doubled the standard deduction for singles from $6,350 in 2017 to $12,000 in 2018; nearly doubled the standard deduction for married couples from $12,700 to $24,400; and bumped up the child tax credit from $1,000 in 2017 to $2,000 in 2018. At a rally on October 30, Harris blabbered, “I promise you this — as a first order of business, Joe Biden and I are about to work to get rid of that tax cut.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1322313887107239936?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1322313887107239936%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2020%2F10%2F30%2Fkamala-harris-joe-biden-and-i-are-about-to-work-to-get-rid-of-that-tax-cut%2F Harris hates women, apparently. Her running mate has been accused of sexual harassment, yet she had no problem being on the same ticket. In fact, Kamala said she was “proud” of Jacob Blake despite his all-around violent history (especially with women), huh? What about Blake’s refusal to listen to law enforcement as they gave him orders, Kamala? Weren’t you the top cop of California, at one point? From Breitbart: Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) told Jacob Blake Jr. on Monday that she is “proud of him and how he is working through his pain,” according to attorney Benjamin Crump, who represents the Blake family. […] At the time of the confrontation, there was a warrant for Blake’s arrest for “third-degree sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct,” according to the Associated Press. A knife was found in his car, Wisconsin authorities later revealed. https://twitter.com/AttorneyCrump/status/1303035889715752961?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1303035889715752961%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2F2020-election%2F2020%2F09%2F07%2Fkamala-harris-told-jacob-blake-she-was-proud-of-him-sexual-assault%2F VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqNefarA828#action=share
