(USA Features News) The Government Accountability Office released a report Thursday claiming that President Donald Trump violated federal law when he temporarily withheld military aid from Ukraine last summer, a charge Democrats say supports their impeachment effort.
In an eight-page report Republicans are already questioning in terms of the timing of its release — the same day Democrats officially transmitted two articles of impeachment against the president to the Senate — the GAO claimed, “Faithful execution of the law does not permit the president to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law.”
Last July, President Trump ordered a temporary halt to military aid for Ukraine amid concerns about corruption. Ukrainian officials would later say they did not realize that the aid had been frozen, and by September the nearly $400 million package was delivered.
