President Donald Trump admitted on Monday morning that he told Ukraine’s president that the U.S. would withhold $250 million in military aid for Ukraine because of “corruption”—an apparent reference to efforts to dig up dirt on the role Joe Biden and his son Hunter are alleged to have played in Ukraine several years back.
“Well, you’re going to see because what we are doing is we want honesty and I think with the new president you’re going to see much more honesty in the Ukraine and that’s what we’re looking for,” Trump told reporters in New York City. “We want to make sure that country is honest. It’s very important to talk about corruption. If you don’t talk about corruption, why would you give money to a country that you think is corrupt?”
Trump’s admission is a massive upping of the stakes of a deeply controversial saga surrounding his presidency.
In the past week, news reports have revealed that in a recent phone call, Trump pressed the new Ukrainian leader, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, to investigate whether Joe Biden intervened on his son’s behalf to fire a prosecutor who was allegedly being harmful to his business interests. News reports have shown that Biden did not play such a role.
Trump shows that not only is he a prolific liar (denying just days ago what he’s bragging about now) but that he doesn’t know when to lie and when to keep his mouth shut.
I would love to see this man impeached for this and various other high crimes and misdemeanors as well as treasonous acts, but I honestly believe that in spite of any and all evidence of his guilt this Republican Senate would fail to remove him from office. Just look at their leader, Moscow Mitch to understand why I feel that to be true.
Party over country is the GOP creedo.
