    Pretty simple Paul. Like I said 12/4/19. It’s not complicated.

    By the way Paul. Are you saying that Hunter Biden didn’t get paid?? You really don’t want to open that can of worms do you?
    And hey!! Since Hunter is such a damn expert, why isn’t he one of the negotiators?

    Speaking of previous President’s, Joe’s old and likely current boss pulled this one.

    Did you read the article you linked to? It talks about Trump asking for more aid, but discusses at length the blocking he did to already approved aid.
    I don't see anywhere in that article that the Congress blocked his request. Maybe they did after all the shenanigans he pulled with the aid they approved earlier in the year.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    The $250 million requested was approved by the Congress.

    And Trump was gonna give it to them. He blocked it initially because of investigations into Hunter’s misbehavior- which has been proven to have happened. Want to address that? Hunter sure got paid plenty and Biden was caught on a phone call basically giving the Ukrainians a quid pro quo ultimatum that he would withhold a billion dollars to make Ukraine Fire a prosecutor there who was investigating Dirty Hunter. But, of course the Dems tried to turn it around on Trump to protect Dirty Hunter & sleepy Joe.
    Why did your guy Biden block aid to Ukraine until The cat was at the door NOW Paul?
    I’ll admit that I was wrong about the Congress approval part of this if you’ll admit that Hunter Biden is a corrupt scumbag and Joe Biden is a corrupt accomplice President.

    Uh, he called but didn’t apologize. From Doocy:
    “ the president said ‘nothing personal, pal’ and so, I think that’s enough, that’s enough. So we can move on … we can now move forward,” Doocy said.”

    “Nothing personal pal”. Huh. There was no apology. Just some old crusty pol thinking “that’s how this business goes”. Accept it….. PAL.
    Comical

    Well, the next presser should be fun. Rosen got his shot in after his and his parent’s phones her tapped by Obama/Biden.
