Watchdog Group Says Trump Broke The Law By Withholding Aid From Ukraine

Published

The U.S. government’s congressional watchdog has determined that President Trump and his administration are guilty of breaking the law by withholding hundreds of millions of dollars of military aid from Ukraine during the summer of 2019.

The Government Accountability Office published a nine-page report on Thursday that concluded the Officer of Management and Budget violated the Impoundment Control Act when it refused to release $214 million set aside as aide to 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 independent legislative branch agency concluded. “The Office of Management and Budget withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act. The withholding was not a programmatic delay. Therefore, we conclude that the Office of Management and Budget violated the Impoundment Control Act.”

The determination comes the same day that the impeachment trial against President Trump related to allegations of abuse of power in Ukraine is set to kick off in the Senate.

“The Constitution grants the President no unilateral authority to withhold funds from obligation,” the Government Accountability Office said. “Instead, Congress has vested the President with strictly circumscribed authority to impound, or withhold, budget authority only in limited circumstances as expressly provided in the Impoundment Control Act.”

How much this information will impact the impeachment trial remains to be seen, but it’s definitely not going to make matters any easier for President Trump going forward.

If you don’t think race-baiting pays well, just ask this co-founder of Black Lives Matter. Also, send a tweet Al Sharpton’s way – considering the guy has made a career out of it and became a multi-millionaire along the way. From The Daily Wire: After reports that a $1.4 million home in a secluded area of Los Angeles whose population is reputedly less than 2% black was sold to one of the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, some black conservative commentators took her to task. On Wednesday, dirt.com reported, “A secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon was recently sold for a tad more than $1.4 million to a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the galvanizing and, for some, controversial Black Lives Matter movement.” Here’s a now-deleted tweet, mocking the BLM co-founder… VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gV19SstJcI

Man, has Joe Biden’s first 100 days in the White House been a gigantic catastrophe or what? The thing is, we all saw this coming – even liberals, deep down, knew that Biden’s policies wouldn’t work. But all that mattered was getting back at Trump for…being too good at being president and defending America? What a headache. From Reuters: WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The United States is considering a conditional cash transfer program to help address economic woes that lead migrants from certain Central American countries to trek north, as well as sending COVID-19 vaccines to those countries, a senior White House official told Reuters on Friday. The potential program would be targeted at people in the Northern Triangle region of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, Roberta Jacobson, the White House’s southern border coordinator, told Reuters in an interview, without saying who exactly would receive cash. Roughly 168,000 people were picked up by U.S. Border Patrol agents at the U.S.-Mexico border in March, the highest monthly tally since March 2001 and part of steadily increasing arrivals in recent months. Instead of doing this Joe, why not just go back to the way Trump was handling things at the border? Suck up the pride and do the right thing, man!
