    Mulvaney Objected to 2017 Ukranian Aid Package, Says State Dept. Official

    Mulvaney objected to 2017 Ukrainian aid package, says State Dept. official

    Additional closed-door deposition transcripts from the impeachment inquiry were released Monday. Laura Cooper, deputy assistant secretary at the Department of Defense, testified during her appearance that her colleagues questioned whether aid appropriated by Congress for Ukraine could legally be frozen by President Trump. Yamiche Alcindor and Lisa Desjardins join Judy Woodruff to discuss.

    Seems like the key part was this:

    One other note. The timeline just expanded with her testimony. She said that the first — there was another package of Ukrainian aid back in 2017. At that point, one agency had objected to that Ukrainian aid. It was Mick Mulvaney, when he ran the Office of Management of Budget.

    And she testifies that Mulvaney didn't like the aid then because he was worried about what Russia would think. The whole point of this aid is to protect Ukraine from Russian aggression. But here was Mulvaney trying to protect — or worried about what Russia thought

    What is going-on here with Mulvaney protecting Russia? It's gotta' be propagated by Trump, right? I can't believe how deep this whole mess has become.

    What was going on here when Obama refused to provide ANY military aid to Ukraine?

    I'm not a liberal, but I am a thinking American. He's not living rent free in anyone's head, he's a shameless media whore whose face and name has been splattered all over the news media and social media since his candidacy.

    He's constantly lying, doing dangerous and ignorant things, making idiotic statements, $hitting on our country and its allies, and has been involved in deceptive cheating scandals since day one. Hard not to have that scumbag media whore not in your face or ear everyday.....but it won't be long when he gets the boot. Then reports of the Traitior in Chief about his failed presidency or stay in prison will at least be a bit easier to stomach.

    Amazes me how many gullible illiterates who still are foolish enough to keep supporting him, are out there swallowing everything he pukes up.

    What are you babbling on about? These are facts. Obama refused to provide ANY military aid to Ukraine. He wouldn't even deliver humanitarian aid directly to Ukraine and instead delivered it to their neighbor nation for delivery to Ukraine by non Americans. While Trump has provided an abundance of Military aid.
