    “Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law. OMB withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act (ICA)” the GAO said.

    Trump and his associates attempted to use the delay in military funds to coerce Ukraine’s president into issuing a public statement that his country was “investigating” former Vice President Joe Biden’s family — a scheme that has formed the basis of his impeachment.
    Then why wasn't it one of the articles of impeachment? Think McFly.

    So? The Republicans have made it clear that they see Trump as a dictator.

    What is clear is that you have a severe case of stupid.

    Plus it's a requirement under federal law to ensure that no foreign aid goes to corrupt dictatorships. Democrats are literally trying to criminalize following the law (but Biden using foreign aid to extort Ukraine into firing the prosecutor investigating his son is perfectly fine), as with immigration enforcement...all while hilariously insisting that "no one is above the law."



    Think McFly indeed.

    The impeachment hoax was designed to destroy Trump, but it did the opposite. BIDEN is who it destroyed (look at the results of the primaries).



    Trump was elected to break the establishment. Of course they've fallen over each other for four years straight to lawlessly retaliate, abuse their power, persecute, and overthrow him. That's how you know it's working.

    Yes, the real dictator isn't the guy you support who started illegal wars without Congress, illegally enacted laws without Congress, illegally defied direct orders from federal judges, illegally enforced laws that were already removed from the books, refused to honor his oath and enforce laws that WERE on the books, lawlessly weaponized law enforcement for partisan gain, illegally spied, and colluded with foreign governments to rig elections...but the guy who wanted to investigate already proven Democrat corruption.



    Nice logic.

    1) Nothing in the post you're responding to mentions or even insinuates anything about Hillary doing anything. Try to keep up.

    2) Your discredited media "fact-checkers" have been caught in more partisan lies than CNN at this point.

    3) Your own article demonstrates perfectly why no thinking adult takes these partisan hack "fact-checkers" seriously at this point:

    "Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump falsely claimed Clinton “acid washed” 33,000 personal emails to delete them, calling it “an expensive process.” The FBI said Clinton’s tech team used BleachBit, which is a free software program. It does not use chemicals.

    Mike Pence, Trump’s running mate, falsely claimed the FBI found “more than 15,000 additional emails dealing with national security.” The FBI recovered about 14,900 emails, but not all of them are work-related and only three contained classified information."

    So for being 99% accurate instead of 100%, your painstakingly objective "fact-checker" smears people as liars. How fair and balanced.

    Did you even read this before attempting to use it as evidence for a claim that it in no way supports?

    The impeachment hoax was designed to destroy Trump, but it did the opposite. BIDEN is who it destroyed (look at the results of the primaries).



    Trump was elected to break the establishment. Of course they've fallen over each other for four years straight to lawlessly retaliate, abuse their power, persecute, and overthrow him. That's how you know it's working.
