Even though the funds were being held at least a week before, on the day of the perfect call, Trump knew he had to shake down Zerensky with a specific solicitation regarding the Bidens. as Giuliani was already helping to facilitate with the removal of Ambassador Yovanovitch. Darn those coincidences.
That “commanding lead” probably bothered Trump.
90 minutes later an email goes out.
“Released emails show that a request to withhold Ukraine's defense aid made by White House less than two hours after Trump's July call with the Ukrainian president that has served as the backbone of the impeachment proceedings against him.“
The rest is cover-up. And months of frustrated officials observing the bypass of rules to maintain the Congressional funding hold until the whistle-blower makes their move.
and there’s all those other matters which should not be forgotten in 2020.
