(Worthy News) – House Democrats have blocked an audit of billions of dollars of U.S. military and economic aid to Ukraine, signaling a bitter partisan fight ahead as the incoming Republican majority vows to scrutinize what it calls President Biden’s “blank check” for Kyiv’s war with Russia.
The measure, calling on the Pentagon and State Department to provide Congress with documents on U.S. aid to Ukraine since the Russian invasion in February, was defeated by a 26-22 House Foreign Affairs Committee vote on Tuesday. The vote blocked the bill from receiving a vote on the House floor.
Committee Chairman Gregory W. Meeks, New York Democrat, called the resolution led by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Georgia Republican, an “extremist” ploy to “undermine strong bipartisan support for Ukrainian freedom and sovereignty.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
