Rand Paul Argues Trump Has 'Every Right' To Freeze Military Aid To Ukraine

“Presidents, since the beginning of time, have resisted Congress,” the Kentucky Republican told NBC News’ “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd. “And there’s been this sort of back-and-forth jockeying over what is sent.”

“But also, presidents have withheld aid before for corruption,” he continued. “So the thing is, I think it’s a mistake to say, ‘Oh, he withheld aid until he got what he wanted.’ Well, if it’s corruption, and he believes there to be corruption, he has every right to withhold aid.”

3. Rand Paul has every right to STFU.

Just as importantly, MTP has every right to stop putting little creeps like him on television.

7. Oh, he understands the point. He just doesn't like it.

Trump withheld legally appropriated aid to Ukraine that would have helped them defend against an actively attacking Russia. He conditioned release of the funds on the Ukrainian president publicly announcing he was opening an investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden, an attempt (almost successful) to help Trump's 2020 campaign and injure Biden's.

It's extortion plain and simple, to the detriment of the national security of the United States and the political benefit of Donald Trump.

And that's impeachable.

6. Just another Russian Repug liar.

The WH own lawyers made the money get released as it was illegal to withhold it. They fought with drumpf and won. Rand absolutely knows this so his stance was a complete phony, as always. He disgusts me.
