Washington, DC –
Sources reveal a new White House e-mail that shows President Trump ordering the end of Ukraine aid.
An official from the Office of Budget and Management made it clear that Trump withheld Ukraine aid. The unredacted documents were reviewed by Just Security where Kate Brannen opened her piece with “Clear direction from POTUS to continue to hold.”
“We were always concerned about the ramifications of holding the military assistance to Ukraine,” a Defense Department official told CNN. We uncover so much more the longer this investigation goes on. We get to find out how many people were actually involved.
The foggiest of details may have now become clear as the documents reviewed by Just Security reveal that Trump made the call.
“This is due to the fact it was appropriated by Congress and had been notified to Congress already prior to the hold being placed and the need to obligate the money by the end of the fiscal year, something the hold had prevented. These concerns were ‘raised multiple times with OMB’ via multiple channels,” they added.
Op: Officials were worried and they tried to warn the President.
