NEWS: #WhiteHouse budget office violated law when it withheld security assistance to #Ukraine, Government Accountability Office (#GAO) says in issuing new report.
#GAO finding #OMB violated Impoundment Control Act `is forceful and it is unambiguous,' says #Appropriations ranking member @senpatleahy. `When President #Trump froze congressionally appropriated military aid to #Ukraine, he did so in violation of the law and the Constitution.'
@SenPatLeahy #GAO ruling on #Ukraine aid `deserves a thorough hearing in the impeachment trial, especially as it relates to the charges of abuse of power,' says @SenatorDurbin, Democratic whip and ranking on #Appropriations Defense panel. context-cdn.washingtonpost.com/notes/prod/def…

Mr. President, homelessness is a state, local, AND federal problem. As Americans, we should lift our fellow citizens up and not degrade them.
Congressional Democrats secured more than $2.8 billion alone in the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development #Appropriations bill to help communities design and implement local solutions to end homelessness.
Congress rejected your proposal to slash/eliminate programs to address homelessness & instead increased programs like HUD-VASH (which serves homeless veterans), Community Service Block Grants, Emergency Food and Shelter Grants, & Homeless Youth Demonstration Grants among others.
