State Department lawyers considered Trump and the White House Office of Management and Budget to be illegally blocking Ukraine military aid. // OMB’s response: 1) Screw you, we can block it anyway; 2) We’re also going to prevent all OMB officials from testifying.

  1. **No advocating violence, brigading, bigotry, trolling, or being a dick to other people here.** It’ll get you banned. See the sidebar for the full version of the rules.

    Please report rule-breaking comments to the special investigators.

  2. Additionally, from [Bloomberg’s original reporting](https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-11-09/state-department-freed-ukraine-money-before-trump-says-he-did):

    1) The State Department decision, which hasn’t been reported previously, stemmed from a legal finding made earlier in the year, and conveyed in a classified memorandum to Secretary of State Michael Pompeo.”

    2) Shortly before Sept. 9, John Bolton had relayed a message to the State Department that the funding could go ahead. It’s not clear whether Bolton, who resigned from the job a week later, did so with Trump’s approval.

    **John Bolton needs to testify.**

    **Mick Mulvaney needs to testify.**

    **Mike Pompeo needs to testify.**

    What a complete clusterfuck.
