White House Committed Criminal Acts, According to Government Watchdog

As the slow-rolling impeachment train begins to pull into the Senate station, there are no shortage of surprises still in the offing.

This has been an unprecedented mess from the very start.  Not only did House Democrats take the entire process hostage and stuff it into a sub-basement deep within the bowels of the Capitol, but they also steered the process squarely in their direction and their direction only.

Now, with a GOP-controlled Senate set to take over, the Democrats and the Deep State are fraught, and lashing out any which way that they can.

The White House budget office violated the law when it froze U.S. military aid to Ukraine, the Government Accountability Office concluded in a new report.

President Donald Trump ordered the hold on the critical security assistance in July, a slew of senior White House officials testified to House impeachment investigators late last year. Itwas a move that coincided with an effort by the president and his allies to pressure Ukraine to investigate Trump’s Democratic rivals.

“Faithful execution of the law does not permit the president to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law,” the GAO wrote in an eight-page report released on Thursday.

The revelation came just hours before a ceremony to swear-in the Senators involved in the impeachment trial took place at the Capitol, with those responsible for the timing of this announcement knowing full well that the ongoing impeachment coverage would push their agenda.
