    Energy Department Releases Ukraine Documents to American Oversight - American Oversight


    Some GOP Senators need to be given credit for the work they have done on behalf of Ukraine and the US honoring our commitments...So why they are pretending that they haven't done this work (which was to catch Trump in the act of ILLEGALLY withholding congressionally approved aid) is beyond me -- maybe they aren't as brave when the spotlight is on and Trump world is watching...Maybe it's much easier to be principled when that Trumper republican base isn't watching...

    "On Tuesday evening, the Department of Energy released 139 pages of records in response to American Oversight’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking documents regarding the Trump administration’s Ukraine pressure campaign. These are the first impeachment-related documents publicly released by the Department of Energy. 'As opening arguments in the impeachment trial come to a close, new evidence continues to emerge almost every day. Tonight marks the first time the public, or Congress, have seen documents from the Department of Energy, despite Secretary Rick Perry’s reported membership in the ‘three amigos’ running the president’s Ukraine scheme. Even in these pages there are clear lines of inquiry that the Senate should follow and names of witnesses to call.”

    This is why Mitch needs to do his job and hurry up and get this trial over with BEFORE more and more evidence comes out -- we gotta get this thing put to bed before pressure starts to build and people may start paying attention and demand to hear witnesses or something -- and that is not what America is about!

    However, I don't see why Rob Portman or Rob Johnson are not patting themselves on the back for getting the Ukrainian aid released -- once they found out Trump was withholding it -- (due to his Ukrainian shakedown scheme that Republicans pretend didn't happen, even though they admit it did happen, but who cares, what about Hillary's emails??) -- Portman even joined in with diabolical Dems like Dick Durbin in pressuring the White House to release the aid.

    “I was concerned as we got into September that the funding had not been delivered yet, so I started asking people all through the administration, and we were informed by the Ukrainian community in Ohio about it, and their concern about it,” Portman told reporters."

    Now Rob, even your own constituents knew that Trump was holding up aid -- and you didn't tell them it was fake news --- you got together with the Dems and put pressure on the Trump admin to get that aid released and you got it done -- you should be proud of that -- even if it proves that Trump indeed withheld aid in exchange for investigating his political opponent -- which is perfectly legal and OK for a president to do as long as that president hates the same minorities you hate...

    I don't think it's a coincidence that so many Republican lawmakers have decided not to run for re-election in November. No matter how committed to a party a person may be, everyone has a line that they're just not willing to cross, and pledging loyalty to this man is a bridge too far for some. At some point, you have to look in the mirror, and being called a RINO pales in comparison to what they would think of themselves.

    It's ok to pretend reality doesn't exist -- it will continue kicking your ass like it has always been doing....

    Which is why you troll on this forum daily....reality kicking you in the ass tends to do that

    People not living in a bubble know that these Senators spoke with the President about the need to investigate corruption in the new Ukraine Govt and how that factored into the need to release the aid to Ukraine to defend itself as the blankets that the previous admin, had provided were insufficient.

    You know Obama sent men to train them in Ukraine, along with many military aids. So you admit tramp was holding up the aid, and it was not due to corruption.
    9 Democrats are on the Ukraine Caucus.

    It was due to corruption - and was done so in compliance with a treaty that we have with Ukraine.

    I think you give politicians way too much credit. Most politicians will seek re-election if they think they will win. It’s a pretty safe bet that if they don’t run, it’s because they can’t win. That’s how scum thinks.
