A Republican senator claimed that the legislation is a “deep state” effort to undermine a potential presidency of Donald Trump
A new bill proposing additional military aid to Kiev could lead to another impeachment case against Donald Trump if he wins re-election in November, Republican Senator J.D. Vance said, calling the measure a “threat” to Trump. “Time bomb.”
In a memo distributed Monday, Vance noted that Ukraine's latest bill calls for funding that would expire “Nearly a year into President Trump's potential second term.” Which suggests Democrats may eventually impeach him if he chooses not to renew the aid.
“If President Trump withdraws or halts financial support for the war in Ukraine in order to bring the conflict to a peaceful end…it would amount to the same fraudulent violation of the Budget Act since the first impeachment.” Vance booksIn addition to that He added, “Partisan Democrats will seize the opportunity to impeach him again.”
He went on to say that the aid bill “Represents an attempt by the foreign policy bubble/deep state to prevent President Trump from pursuing his desired policies.” The former president also repeatedly questioned US generosity to Ukraine throughout the conflict with Russia.
Democrats voted to impeach Trump in late 2019, accusing him of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress after he threatened to withhold US aid to Ukraine during a phone call with his counterpart Vladimir Zelensky.
The bill, part of a larger funding package worth more than $95 billion, allocates $60 billion to Kiev, in addition to additional aid to Israel and US allies in Asia. It has been subject to political deadlock for months. Trump himself has criticized the legislation, recently telling an audience in South Carolina that such foreign aid should be repaid to the US government.
“They want to give something like $100 billion to a few countries, $100 billion. And I said, ‘Why are we doing this? If you do that, you’re giving them, not $100 billion, you’re giving it to them as a loan.’” He said.
After lengthy negotiations over the new military package in Washington, a final vote to pass the Senate version of the bill could take place this week, according to multiple reports.
Trump has said on multiple occasions that he will one way or another resolve the two-year-old conflict “in one day” If he returns to the White House. This was suggested by his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr “the only way” It was necessary to persuade Zelensky to enter into talks with Russia “cut the money” Which is presented to Kiev by Washington.
