‘Bombshell’ email Dems claim proves Trump ‘withheld aid’ from Ukraine actually screws their entire narrative

We thought Schumer was smarter than this

By Jon Dougherty

(TNS) Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is not a stupid man, but he’s making a claim regarding a “bombshell” email he says ‘proves’ that President Trump did, in fact, withhold military aid from Ukraine that is, well, stupid.

The email in question came after a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a transcript of which does not contain any threat from the White House to withhold lethal military aid from Ukraine as Democrats claim.

In fact, as U.S. Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland would testify during the House’s impeachment inquiry last month, President Trump specifically told him he didn’t want any “quid pro quo” from Ukraine — he wanted “nothing,” in fact.

But okay. Let’s play along.

Schumer tweeted out an email on Monday from Office of Management and Budget official Michael Duffy that proves Trump lied or something and actually did withhold Ukraine’s aid.

But let’s actually read the email, shall we?

First of all, Duffy talks about a “pause” in aid while the White House “review” of the assistance — which is required by law (presidents have to certify that Ukraine is sufficiently battling corruption in order to continue qualifying for aid paid for by American taxpayers).

But what does a pause imply? Just that; it’s temporary. And we already knew that the aid pause was temporary because it was eventually delivered.

And to that last point, note in the Duffy email that the Defense Department would be continuing “its planning and casework” and that “brief pause in obligations will not preclude” the Pentagon’s “timely execution of the final policy direction.”

And what is that final policy direction? Delivery of military aid to Ukraine.

Let’s also note that Trump, not President Obama, agreed to send lethal military assistance to Ukraine in the form of Javelin anti-tank missiles.



Obama sent Joe Biden, who demanded a quid pro quo — fire a prosecutor looking into a corrupt company paying son Hunter millions — or forfeit $1 billion in aid money.

Schumer is grasping at straws. And he knows it.

There has got to be some way to put an end to the insane attacks by democrats on the president. This cannot continue it’s an abomination.

The American people didn’t vote for a government whose sole purpose is not to govern, but to rule over ….. a formerly free people. They voted for a president who would uphold their constitutional rights.

Somebody needs to do something.

Jon this is regurgitation of already written news.

Hardly worth even an opinion.

Do some digging dude…. get some boots on the location and write something new.

PS – This will probably go sideways in that cocky attitude you have about being a “journalist”… No don’t go there I am more conservative that you are..

Schmucker is just seething with TDS. Just like the rest of the dims/commies.
How can we get rid of them? Don’t re-elect or elect one single leftist for anything, anwhere, at any level of any government.
Dogcatcher is too high a post these scumbag traitors.

Democrats don’t have a “narrative.” They say whatever is expedient at any moment…including mutually exclusive “facts!”
