In January 2020, right before the coronavirus changed life for everyone across the world, Donald Trump was impeached for the first time. Now, the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice is feeling the heat from that criminal act as the Ukrainian people are under attack from Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Schiff appeared on MSNBC Monday morning to discuss the conflict in Ukraine, where citizens are being killed and the democratically-elected leader is being hunted by the leader of Russia. In 2020, Trump withheld congressionally approved funding for Ukraine in exchange for an announcement that the Ukrainian government was opening an investigation into his political rival, Joe Biden’s, son, Hunter Biden. That delay in funding made Ukraine’s ability to protect itself much weaker than it should have been.
‘first of all, it is important for people to recognize Ukraine has been at war with Russia for a long time. Back during that impeachment, there were Ukrainians fighting and dying every week at the hands of Russians and Russian-backed separatists Donald Trump was holding back military aid to Ukraine to extort Zelinsky of Ukraine to help him smear his opponent Joe Biden.’
