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

Published

on

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.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“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.

Pete Buttigieg Believes In Less Government But Only About One Issue [Opinion]

Something a lot of Americans are passionate about…

The View‘s Meghan McCain recently sought a clearer answer from Mayor Pete Buttigieg about his position on late-term abortion. She asked him where he drew the line and whether his position included a baby actually being born: Buttigieg: “We live in a country where it is extremely important that no one person should have to be subject to some other person’s interpretation of their own religion.” I wondered whether Mayor Pete thought religious freedom equally applied to say, Jack Phillips’ right not to be forced to create a custom cake for a gay wedding. Sure enough I found a piece in the Washington Free Beacon, entitled, “Mayor Pete Will Make you Bake the Cake.” McCain pressed again, and the Mayor of South Bend answered with rhetoric that sounded like a limited government conservative: Buttigieg: “My point is that it shouldn’t be up to the government official to draw the line. It should be up the woman who is confronted with that choice.” McCain: “So if a woman wanted to invoke infanticide after a baby is born, you’d be comfortable with that?” Buttigieg: “… I don’t know what to tell them morally about what they should do. I just know that I trust that her decision isn’t going to be any better, medically or morally . . . because the government is telling her to do it a certain way.” He gave an almost identical answer in a televised Town Hall with Chris Wallace. Candidate Buttigieg who is ordinarily so comfortable sermonizing to his Leftist flock couldn’t bring himself to say that it is immoral to kill a baby after it’s born. I’ve always found it perplexing that the Left’s strong support for Obamacare never included any of this faux passion for freedom and restraint of government when it comes to…

Bloomberg: ‘Black & Latino Males’ Don’t ‘Know How to Behave In the Workplace’ (Video)

This could be the video to end his campaign…

If Michael Bloomberg was running for president as a Republican, the mainstream media would literally force him to drop from the race after several cringeworthy videos resurfaced. For instance, just the other day the former mayor of New York City said elderly patients should be denied care past a certain age. He was then busted for completely mocking farmers, basically calling them rubes by saying he could personally “teach anyone” how to farm. He also allegedly told an employee to “kill” her baby. But this 2011 clip below may just be the one that ends “Mini Mike’s” 2020 hopes. From Fox News: While promoting a $127 million, three-year initiative to help minorities in the workplace in 2011, then-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared that there’s “this enormous cohort of black and Latino males” who “don’t know how to behave in the workplace” and “don’t have any prospects.” […] Speaking to PBS in the 2011 interview, Bloomberg noted that he had donated $30 million from his foundation to Open Society Foundations, the network established by liberal billionaire financier Goerge Soros, toward the new plan to enhance employment among minorities.
