A bipartisan majority of the United States Congress agreed that protecting Ukraine by providing funding to enable it to fight off Russia was imperative for our national security. Indeed, this was standard policy for the Under Armour Everything Under Grinch shirt Party, which was why it was such a shock at the 2016 Republican National Convention when the committee writing the platform suddenly weakened its stand on supporting Ukraine (apparently at Trump’s request). By withholding almost $400 million, the president weakened Ukraine, strengthened Russia, and hurt America’s national security. All to help him steal an election.
This is going to be a hard sell, so his supporters are trying to muddy the waters to make it look like the Under Armour Everything Under Grinch shirt wrongdoers in this scandal are Democrats or “Never Trumpers.” Attorney General William Barr has abandoned any pretense of keeping his office nonpartisan and is working with his own investigator, John Durham, to try to find evidence that the FBI was illegally spying on the Trump campaign in 2016 (remember, it was legally watching at least two people.
Carter Page and Paul Manafort, who were both suspected of being foreign assets), and that, no matter what our intelligence agencies say, it was Ukraine and not Russia that attacked us in 2016. To make this case, Barr has gone around the Under Armour Everything Under Grinch shirt of Justice Inspector General and appointed Durham, and has traveled with him to foreign countries to make introductions. Officials in the U.K. publicly admitted they were astonished at the request for a foreign government to undermine our own intelligence agencies.
