Previously Unreleased Defense Dept. Email Confirms Trump Made ‘Final Decision’ on Withholding Ukraine Aid

  1. Funny how this crucial detail never came out during his trial.

  2. Democrats: Not surprised

    Independents: Also not surprised

    Republicans: Not surprised and don’t care that the president lies to them repeatedly, or breaks the law.

  3. Let’s all remember this the next time someone wants to both claim total innocence AND withhold evidence.

  4. GOP will be seen as traitors in the eyes of American History.

  5. Yeah that sounds about right. Too bad Republicunts don’t care.

  6. I see a lot of Biden talk on here. I don’t see why anyone would give a shit about Biden. The whole point is that trump held back aide for personal gain. You come out looking like a sheep if you are still associating both.

  7. Obviously. They didn’t argue the fact Trump was guilty, thru just didn’t care

  8. Honestly…. It doesn’t matter. Nothing would have changed the final Senate vote . This could have came out in the trial, it would have changed nothing

  9. Did ANYONE (other than trumpers) not see that coming?

  10. So re-try him with new evidence? Double Jeopardy doesn’t apply because it’s “not a real trial” so haul everyone back down to the Senate and re-do this w the new evidence?

    What’s stopping us

  11. Of course he did after all he’s done absolutely nothing else that’s above board.

  12. Good to know now that no one cares any longer.

  13. We already knew he withheld the aid. This is not news.

    On a side note the email is odd.

    The response from OUSD official is redacted, the SES member claimed unanimous agreement from a list of members but did not CC them on the email (if you are claiming someone supports you, you let them know you are name dropping). In addition, he replied to a group email updating officials on the status of the aid (which clearly lays out that appropriated funds are not obligated funds, and the deadline).

    He then provides that he has a letter pre-drafted, without having been directed to do so (nor to reach out to other officials), and passes it up to his supervisor “in case the DoD wants to make an official position”.

    Then the “buzz-phrases” everyone is jumping on is his line stating that POTUS has the final decision (which is normal, because the funds are from the United States to another country). The email doesn’t even state that Trump made the final decision. Just that he has the option.

    I’m not taking a stance that nothing shady happened, investigations happen for a reason (because we don’t know what happened). This email just points out that (SURPRISE) someone lower in the chain of command did not agree with the official actions of the administration.


  15. So … guilty, yeah? Withholding evidence that proves guilt … yes? Justice? Hello?

  16. It doesn’t matter any more. Donald “Individual One” Trump is a criminal. Everyone knows it and the GOP just don’t care. The GOP are happy with the CRIMINAL in office.

    The GOP cheer him on. He is their idol.

  17. When you’re President, they just let you do it.

  18. ##### Trump’s Five Crimes Connected to Ukraine:

    ###### I. Bribery (18 U.S.C. § 201)

    ###### II. Soliciting foreign campaign contribution (52 U.S.C. §§ 30109, 30121)

    ###### III. Coercion of political activity (18 U.S.C. § 610)

    ###### IV. Misappropriation of federal funds (18 U.S.C. § 641)

    ###### V. Obstruction of Congress (18 U.S.C. §§ 1505, 1512)

  19. Trump is a lying pig? Big surprise.

  20. Another one of fat Donnie’s lies exposed by documents. Hey cultists, are the documents now libs or never trumpers?

  21. Not that it matters. By the time the Senate vote came to pass, everyone was pretty much in agreement as to what happened.

  22. Good thing there wasn’t a real trial.

  23. He looks so gross he looks like a real life meat crayon drawing

  24. As if there was any doubt.

  25. So basically the Republicans made the wrong choice protecting a corrupt president

  26. Why are we still talking about this? There’s nothing more to be gained. His supporters don’t care, his opponents already oppose him.

  27. I’m sure that’s just a hoax, like the corona virus thing

  28. Is this republicans gauding after he was let off by the senate? Its been clear from the moment the story broke that he was behind it. This is not news.

  29. Corruption at it best and the worst for the U.S.
