David Hale: Aid Was Held up to Lebanon, Central America Alongside Ukraine

BREITBART: Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs David Hale confirmed Wednesday evening at the House Intelligence Committee that aid to Lebanon was held up at the same time, and in the same way, as aid to Ukraine.

Hale testified during the sixth public hearing in the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Responding to questions from Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX), Hale agreed that President Trump had a general skepticism of foreign aid and wanted to overhaul the way it was handled, as part of his “America First” policy.

He also agreed that delays on aid are not uncommon, and confirmed his earlier testimony that aid to Lebanon had been held up by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in the White House, as had aid to Pakistan and to the “Northern Triangle” countries (El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras) until it was later released. The Lebanon hold remains in effect. MORE

  1. the Leftists will either ignore this or interpret it to somehow support their accusations.

    It’s the way their minds work, it’s how they think.

  2. Foreign aid has been draining this country of its wealth for five decades. Why shouldn’t President Trump be skeptical of the billions of dollars that pour out of this country every year to support corrupt dictators in Third World Shitholes and countries that will never appreciate our aid?

  3. Dark comedy, isn’t it? – Making a banana republic out our nation? GOPe is complicit, too.

    Start building the gallows. Dig up McCain, and hang him first.
