This is stunning. The US deputy secretary of state, on live television, acknowledges Giuliani was trying to take down the US ambassador in Ukraine. He also says a White House official circulated a dossier of misinformation in aid of that smear campaign.
Republicans farcically claim there’s no direct evidence that Trump withheld aid to get political investigations. The problem? His own chief of staff admitted it, on live TV. It’s clear: Trump wanted to use military aid as leverage to get Ukraine to do his political dirty work.
On Trump's watch, 3,000 Americans died after Hurricane María. A new storm approaches and 33,000 Puerto Ricans still live under blue tarps. Trump's response? Divert $155 million from FEMA for migrant detention, complain about federal aid, and mock Puerto Rican officials. Insane.
