Impeachment Witness Reveals Why Ukraine Aid Was Held Up

A recent review of the deposition of an impeachment witness reveals the reason why the witness was told aid was withheld from Ukraine.

Instead of the ominous reason created by Democrats, the real reason seems to be because President Trump was concerned that other o=countries were not contributing their fair share to Ukraine.

According to The Daily Wire:

Newly released transcripts from the deposition of Mark Sandy, an official at the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB), reveal that OMB was allegedly instructed to withhold aid to Ukraine because President Donald Trump was concerned “about other countries not contributing more to Ukraine.”

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) responded to the release of the transcripts from the deposition, which happened on Chairman Adam Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee, by writing on Twitter, “The transcript for OMB’s Mark Sandy was just released. The ONLY reason he was ever given why there was a hold on $ to Ukraine was ‘the President’s concern about other countries not contributing more to Ukraine.’ NOT bribery. NOT quid pro quo or any other WACKY Schiff conspiracy!”


Sandy made the revelation when he was asked what reason Michael Duffey, a politically appointed official at the OMB, was given by the White House on why the aid to Ukraine was to be delayed.

Sandy went on to state that the requests that he received in early September about how much other nations were contributing to Ukraine came from Duffey.

A new report has emerged Wednesday indicating that President Trump was briefed about the whistleblower complaint before he released the aid but it remains unclear if that was the reason he released the aid.
