After Months of Giuliani pressuring Ukraine officials to open an investigation into Biden ....

July 18: Trump blocks nearly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine


Taylor, in his written testimony, says he was on a video conference with National Security Council staff and others that day when someone from the Office of Management and Budget chimed in and "said that she was from OMB and that her boss had instructed her not to approve any additional spending of security assistance for Ukraine until further notice." According to Taylor, she said, "The directive had come from the President to the Chief of Staff to OMB."


ONE DAY LATER

7/19/19 Text From Kurt Volker (US Special Rep Ukraine) to Taylor (US Diplomat to Ukraine) and Sondland (US Ambassador EU)

Had breakfast with Rudy this morning—teeing up call with Yermak (Chief Advisor to President Zelensky) Monday,
Must have helped.
Most (important) is for Zelensky to say that he will help investigation—and address any specific personnel issues—if there are any.

TWO DAYS after THE UNEXPLAINED HOLD ON AID

July 20: Taylor holds a call with Ukrainian national security adviser Alexander Danyliuk "during which he conveyed to me that President Zelenskyy did not want to be used as a pawn in a U.S. re-election campaign," according to Taylor's written testimony.

A WEEK AFTER THE HOLD AND 30 MINUTES BEFORE TRUMP + ZELENSKY CALL

July 25, 8:36 a.m. VOLKER texts YERMAK (President Zelensky's Chief Advisor)

[7/25/19, 8:36:45]
Kurt Volker: Good lunch - thanks.
Heard from White House -- Assuming President Z convinces Trump he will investigate/ "get to the bottom of what happened in 2016", we will nail down date for Visit to Washington.
Good luck! See you tomorrow- kurt

July 25 Trump and Pres Zelenksy Speak by phone and Trump asks for investigations into Crowdstrike and Biden

Aug. 9 to 17 In a series of text threads released by House investigators, State Department officials, Giuliani and Yermak discuss a statement that would commit Ukraine to investigate both the 2016 election and Burisma.

In one exchange, Sondland tells Volker that Trump "really wants the deliverable,"

Yermak says they want to set a date for a meeting before discussing making public statements about investigations.

Aug. 28: Politico reports that U.S. military aid to Ukraine is being held up.
Yermak sends a text to Volker the next day linking to the article and says, "Need to talk with you." Yermak also tells Taylor he is concerned.

Aug. 29: Trump cancels a trip to Poland to commemorate World War II. He is scheduled to meet with Zelenskiy while on the trip

Sept. 1:
Sondland met with Yermak in Warsaw and told the Ukrainian official that "the security assistance money would not come until President Zelenskyy committed to pursue the Burisma investigation."


"Are we now saying that security assistance and WH meeting are conditioned on investigations?" Sondland replies, "Call me."

On that call, Taylor writes in his testimony,"Ambassador Sondland told me that President Trump had told him that he wants President Zelenskyy to state publicly that Ukraine will investigate Burisma and alleged Ukrainian interference in the 2016 U.S. election."

He adds that Sondland told him "everything" was contingent on "such an announcement, including security assistance" and that Trump wanted to put Zelenskiy "in a public box."

Sept 8th
Taylor continues that on that call with Sondland:

"Ambassador Sondland tried to explain to me that President Trump is a businessman. When a businessman is about to sign a check to someone who owes him something, he said, the businessman asks that person to pay up before signing the check."

Taylor says he argued that the explanation made no sense and that "holding up security assistance for domestic political gain was 'crazy'."

Sept. 9: On the day that the congressional intelligence committees are formally notified of the existence of the whistleblower complaint,

Ambassador Taylor in a text with Sondland says, "As I said on the phone, I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign."

LESS THAN 48 HOURS AFTER THE WHISTLE BLOWER COMPLAINT BECOMES KNOWN..

Sept. 11: Under pressure from lawmakers, the White House releases the funding for Ukraine without any explanation of what changed.

Bolton's testimony is coming up. It will be interesting to see if he puts loyalty to Trump ahead of the chance of being put in jail for perjury. No left wing liberal spin with the threat of jail time!

"Allegedly, according to triggered leftist political hacks "

You left out this part.

It's a sad day when investigating corruption is now called election tampering.

And odd considering Biden is a candidate for the democrats primary and not actually a candidate for President of the United States as of yet.

And if you have any hope of even making a half assed argument for this nonsense, the democrats would have to give Biden the nomination or this whole farce falls apart even further.

This "reporting" is 90% hearsay, which isn't surprising They list some questionable statements only Trump or Rudy would know, and then give a link just showing that a meeting happened as if the entire statement is a fact.

Would you also consider this extorting a foreign country? If not, then what are you even doing here?

You mean according to Text Transcripts and Testimony under Oath of Trump's appointed staff?

Corruption is a real thing and there is a world of it worth investigating (e.g. A Corrupt US President)
This was not that. It was extorting a Ukrainian President with taxpayer funds and congressional appropriated military aid to invent an investigation against the President's Political rival for use in his domestic re-election campaign.

False.

It is text messages, documents, reporting of actual events, transcripts and virtually everyone who has testified under oath validating the sworn testimony of one another.

Of course they won't. These are the same people who think Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton talked about golf and their grand kids during their secret tarmac meeting while Hillary was under active investigation.

Everyone who actually heard the call (and is not repeating what he supposedly heard from someone else) has said that nothing untoward happened on the call.

And you still haven't explained why Joe Biden should get a free pass on bribery just because he's running for president. Which seems to be the underlying assumption behind the Dems' thinking.

I'm going to ask you again, in YOUR own thread. Why dont you include dates prior to April 2019? You know, BEFORE Biden threw his hat in for President?

If the investigation began prior to Biden running for President, doesn't that kill the Dems narrative?

Its funny.....all the dems are asking for justice against corruption as they literally have been taking it in the shorts for 30 years. The dem starategist for Clinton got caught telling people the dem voters are DUMB....YES idiots!! They rely on it. uniformed, emotionally charged voters!! THESE DEM leaders have enriched themselves making 100K per year as civil servants! Most of them can't even formulate a sentence and we are to believe they are sooo business savvy that they are all now MULTI-MULTI millionaires? I'm for cleaning out the rhino republicans as well... same thing. BUT don't be WILLING fools. TRUMP is the opposite of the problem. Every "DUMB"( per dem strategist) democrat voter I talk to hates Trump because he is a "liar", a "Nazi", a "misogynist", "stupid" etc.. all emotions.. this is all fake news. do the homework and stop being "DUMB".

Why is it no one can offer a substance response?

Shill, Fake News, insults...

I am embarrassed for people that are incapable of simply addressing facts and evidence.

Deflection and fallacy.

Irrelevant to the topic and even if the ramble had any veracity, one person's crime does not excuse another's.

Maybe it's because you dont answer relevant questions, like mine.

I will ask again, do you consider the attached video extorting a foreign country? If not, please explain why not.
