💥Trump ordered hold on $400 military aid for Ukraine days before phone call pressuring President Zelensky to investigate Biden’s son. washingtonpost.com/national-secur… #Whistleblower #WhistleblowerComplaint #UkraineExtortion
OMB relayed Trump’s order to hold Ukraine’s military aid to State Dept & Pentagon in mid-July. Officials were instructed to tell lawmakers delays were part of “interagency process” & to give no additional info. Pattern continued for nearly 2 months, until the night of Sept. 11.
🚨Ukrainian President Zelensky told Senator Murphy “directly” that “the aid that was being cut off to Ukraine by the president was a consequence” of Zelensky’s unwillingness to launch investigation into the Bidens. #Whistleblower #WhistleblowerComplaint #Ukraine #UkraineScandal
Trump admin claims it held up aid to “explore” whether #Ukraine’s new president Zelensky was pro-Russia or pro-Western. 🧐But told Congress another story—for 2 months. How many Ukrainians died as a result?? (FYI Military aid to fight Russia is a huge tell you’re not pro-Russia.)
Aha. NYT confirms WaPo, adding this whiff of Putin: Trump “singled out Ukraine as a place he considered corrupt.” Ukraine military aid freeze was different from holds on other programs. Even after other aid was restored, money for Ukraine remained blocked.
Pretty clear Trump has swallowed whole Putin's disdain of #Ukraine, whose democracy so threatened Putin's kleptocracy, he stole its land, vilified its govt & killed its people.

Not the first time Trump's echoed views wreaking of Russian influence. Think Montenegro, Afghanistan.
