Nadler: "It does not matter that Trump got caught, & ultimately released the funds that Ukraine so desperately needed.

It matters that he enlisted a foreign gov’t to intervene in our elections in the first place."

Ds & Rs clashed as the HJC formally begins.

WH review turns up emails showing extensive effort to justify Trump’s decision to block UKR military aid

Trump made the decision to w/hold aid the w/o discussion re reasoning or legal justification

Mulvaney asked acting OMB director Vought for an update on the legal rationale for w/holding the aid & how much longer it could be delayed.

Mulvaney said he asked OMB Dir to block the release of aid to UKR — at the Trump’s request — in early to mid-July of 2019.

In December 2018, months before the Ukraine issue surfaced as a top priority for Trump, the GAO had warned OMB (Mulvaney) it was not following the law in how it chose to disburse and withhold congressionally-approved funds.

The years long narrative ‘Ukraine rather than RU meddled in the 2016 elex’ is a RU Intel Op, US Intel says.

US Intel officials informed senators and their aides of the origin of this narrative & how it serves RU

Yet GOP continue to amplify the falsehoods

RU had engaged in a yearslong campaign to essentially frame Ukraine as responsible for Moscow’s own hacking of the 2016 election.

The briefing came as Republicans stepped up their defenses of Mr. Trump in the Ukraine affair.

The revelations demonstrate Russia’s persistence in trying to sow discord among its adversaries — and show that the Kremlin apparently succeeded, as unfounded claims about Ukrainian interference seeped into Republican talking points

The Madrid meeting was a “`direct followup'” to the July 25 Trump-Zelenskyy phone call and specifically to their discussion of the cases the U.S. president raised in that conversation, according to the whistleblower’s complaint.

Mulvaney’s OMB Held Up Critical Ukraine Aid for Fear of Russian Reaction, which conflicts with US Nat Sec interests & established US Foreign policy.

“In a briefing w/ Mulvaney, the question centered around the Russian reaction,” said Croft in the transcript.

When pressed, Croft added the fear was specifically “that RU would react negatively to the provision of javelins to Ukraine.”

Laura Cooper testified that Trump through the OMB, directed the freeze on hundreds of millions of dollars of critical military aid to UKR.

This against the judgement of career officials from the DOD, the DOS & other relevant agencies.

The hold on UKR funds provoked panic at the DOD & DOD because the law required them to spend the money by the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30 or it EXPIRES.

They had to get the aid moving by 9/15 -- b/c of a req’t for a 2-week notification to Congress.

Trump says he lifted his freeze on aid to UKR on Sept. 11, but the DOS had quietly authorized releasing $141M of the money several days earlier.

The DOS decision, was based on a legal finding made earlier in the year, & conveyed in a classified memo to Pompeo.

DOS lawyers found the WH OMB & thus the president, had no legal standing to block spending of the Ukraine aid.

The freeze on funds Ukraine sought for its continuing war against Russia-backed separatists was opposed by many in the administration.
