Speak Out: No pressure

Ukraine’s president said Tuesday that no one explained to him why millions of dollars in U.S. military aid to his country was delayed, dismissing suggestions that President Donald Trump froze the funding to pressure Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden.

• Democrats know they can’t beat him in 2020 so they will continue with any means possible to get him ousted. This is the true crime. Meanwhile Democrats will have gone four years without accomplishing a single thing. The real victim is us, the taxpayers. — Stacy Johnson

•The Republicans couldn’t accomplish anything even when they controlled the White House, Senate and House. — Dan Maher

• There is a large number of bills that the Dem-controlled house worked on and passed that are sitting on McConnell’s desk in the Senate. A number would likely save taxpayers money. Why won’t he even let those bills have a vote? My bank account could certainly benefit. — Kristin Froehlich

• Democrats did the biggest jumping the shark in political history. They are pathetic. They just had to wait one day for the transcript to be released to find there was no smoking gun. They are unhinged. Trump broke the Democratic Party. — Ryan Fenimore

• The phone transcript says differently! — Brendan Warner

• Said the new leader of Ukraine who is receiving hundreds of millions of dollars from the U.S. — Merv Sparks

• Well the leader of ukraine got $1 billion from Joe Biden to get rid of the top prosecutor going after Biden’s sons’ dirty dealing. Biden admits he intimidated the Ukraine president but that’s OK because he’s a Democrat right? Those who cast the first stone usually are doing so to deflect the attention off of their own corruption as long as they keep crying foul

Their own investigations are backfiring against them like the Mueller report opened up proven spying by Obama’s Department of Justice on the Trump campaign. Adam Schiff’s secret recording of talking to Russians trying to get dirt on Trump, and Biden’s strong-arming of the Ukraine president to fire a top prosecutor who was going after Biden’s son’s dealings and high-paying jobs in the millions in the gas and oil industry that Hunter Biden knows nothing about. — Christopher Dunion

• Yes, Biden said that. No one is questioning that but look at the timing and situation. Biden, other leaders and agencies all want the prosecutor fired. This wasn’t all on Biden. Also, the investigation was not active during Biden’s statement. Finally, even the Ukraine government said there was no wrongdoing. So if Republicans thought Biden’s actions were so horrible, why didn’t they say something when it happened?

Plus, if you believe so strongly that Biden is guilty then you must believe Trump is guilty. As for the Mueller Report, 10 examples of obstructions, Barr’s misrepresentation of the report, and Mueller saying if there was no corruption he would have said there were none. Trump has lied so many times and disrespected the U.S., the position, our agencies, members of the military, that no one believes or trust him anymore. — Merv Sparks
