A new memo from the White House proves that the funds that were being held from Ukraine were completely unrelated to Joe Biden, his son, or Burisma.
Rather, the hold that was placed on the funds was actually a very routine thing to do while the U.S. did some homework first.
According to The Daily Wire,
The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released a new legal memo on Wednesday indicating that the Trump administration’s decision to temporarily hold military assistance to Ukraine was a “routine” practice and that the administration was reviewing whether Ukraine complied with U.S. policy.
The memo indicated that the decision to withhold the aid was not a political action to block Congress’ spending decisions.
“The office first began discussing the aid on June 19, the day President Trump learned of the aid from an article in the Washington Examiner and questioned the wisdom of the spending,” The Washington Post reported. “That move sent aides scrambling, according to a senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share internal conversations.”
The Washington Post noted that, “The Office of Management and Budget extended the temporary hold on the aid eight times in August and September, the last time being Sept. 10,” The Post added. “Almost immediately after that hold, the money was released, according to the new memo, which was reviewed by The Washington Post.”
Wait a minute, this was from back in June? Long before the infamous phone call that the Dems are so worked up about? This would then be completely unrelated to looking into Biden and Burisma. In fact, that’s exactly what the OMB says.
The memo mentions that the OMB has routinely held funds for decades and that this time the funds were on hold pending a policy decision which was to be discussed mid-June.
