Mark Sandy, an official at the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB), testified earlier this month that he was told U.S. security assistance to Ukraine had been held up because of President Donald Trump’s concerns that other countries were not giving enough.
Sandy testified that Trump began asking questions about the aid on June 19. He sought advice from the OMB counsel, because the terms of the Impoundment Control Act set a limit to how long funds could be held.
Finally, he said, there was an email in early September that explained the reasoning: “I recall in early September an email that attributed the hold to the President’s concern about other countries not contributing more to Ukraine.”
A big lie (German: große Lüge) is a propaganda technique and logical trick (fallacy). The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously". Hitler believed the technique was used by Jews to blame Germany's loss in World War I on German general Erich Ludendorff, who was a prominent nationalist and antisemitic political leader in the Weimar Republic.

I'm kind of not surprised that you would ask people not to put too much thought into it...
I was being sarcastic actually.
Seems to have elicited some thought.
Now you can expand on "Talk to Rudy".

So why when asked if he knew why it was being withheld he said, "I don't know."
Turns out trump knew about the whistleblower much earlier than he has led us to think. (oh what a surprise)
He released the money after learning about the whistleblower. Pretty quickly too.
