State Dept agrees to turn over Ukraine documents, potentially providing Democrats with fodder

State Department agrees to turn over Ukraine documents, potentially providing Democrats with impeachment fodder

The State Department has agreed to release documents related to President Trump’s handling of aid to Ukraine, potentially providing ammunition to the impeachment probe now being conducted by Democrats in the House of Representatives.

The decision comes in response to a lawsuit filed by American Oversight, a watchdog group affiliated with progressive causes. That lawsuit was initially filed in the spring, after Trump dismissed U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie L. Yovanovitch. Since that firing, a whistleblower complaint and other developments have led to allegations Trump used $400 million in aid to Ukraine as leverage on authorities there to investigate Hunter Biden.

snip . . .

At the time, American Oversight’s executive director, Austin Evers, deemed the decision a “major setback” for the Trump administration. However, it was not clear just how the State Department would respond. The department instructed Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, not to testify. He did so anyway.

The agreement between the State Department and American Oversight stipulates that the documents be turned over by Nov. 22, by which time the impeachment inquiry could well be in its public stage.

4. Is "fodder" now what evidence is called by the media

No bias there.
