Default Joni Ernst calls out Democrats over aid to Ukraine: 'Hypocrisy is on full display'

Not much to say about this one as it pretty well speaks for itself. Of course the Democrats are complete hypocrites, and that is their most redeeming quality.

Joni Ernst calls out Democrats over aid to Ukraine: 'Hypocrisy is on full display'

Democrats' claim that the Trump administration broke America's promise to protect Ukraine from Russia by withholding military aid is just an example of the party's hypocrisy, Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, claimed Thursday.

"The Democratic House Managers’ hypocrisy is on full display," Ernst wrote on Twitter on Thursday evening, after Day 3 of Trump's Senate impeachment trial. "They’ve spent most of their time lecturing the Senate on aid to Ukraine, yet four of them voted AGAINST legislation that provided the very same aid they’re lecturing us on."

"What I find very interesting now is that the House Managers are very, very centered on the fact that Russia was invading Ukraine. And military funding to Ukraine," she said during a break from President Trump’s impeachment trial earlier Thursday, reminding reporters that Crimea was invaded in 2014 during the Obama administration.

Ernst told reporters the Obama administration reacted to the invasion by “sending blankets.”

Her remarks came after lead House Manager Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said the Trump administration had abused its power by withholding $400 million in military aid allegedly on the condition of investigating the Bidens.

Ernst said that, unlike former President Obama, Trump has sent “lethal aid” to Ukraine.

“These House managers did nothing of the sort to provide that assistance to Ukraine and yet now they are on their high horse … for President Trump not doing enough for Ukraine," she added.

Republicans criticized Obama for sanctioning Russia rather than sending arms to Ukraine after the 2014 invasion; the Obama administration said they were concerned that sending lethal aid could escalate the situation with Russia.

“The fact is that Ukraine, which is a non-NATO country, is going to be vulnerable to military domination by Russia no matter what we do,” Obama told The Atlantic at the time.

Between 2014 and 2016 the Obama administration also sent more than $600 million in assistance to Ukraine and started the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative that sends U.S. military equipment, Politifact reported.

the impeachment wasn't about feels for the Ukrainians It was about separation of powers and Presidential abuse of powers. (plus obstruction)
but of course, writers who get paid to muddy the waters have a big sway on a portion of the public.

Sigh.....

It's not simply about the aid, its about the fact that the POTUS used the aid to extort Ukraine in an effort to help his political campaign so that he could cheat in the upcoming election. And then he did everything he could to obstruct Congress from learning about it.

Why do you keep lying about that simple fact?

Oh. you mean the fact that in accordance with an existing treaty, he asked the Ukrainian government to investigate the actions of a former government official who was possibly in violation of US law? The rest of your statement is absolute nonsense. You and your leftist/fascist buddies are the ones who need to stop lying.

I find it curious that the left is able to read minds to determine intent of those with whom they disagree politically. What other magic powers do they have?

Well, they ARE able to tell us what Trump says, without him having to say it.

Not only do they put words in his mouth, but they give us the true meanings of those words, that were not said. And millions of Democrats sit in
front of the TV and nod in agreement, while mumbling "that f*cking Trump has got to go"
