Re: POLL: Countdown to Impeachment
DOD received calls from Ukraine about the hold on aid on 7/25/19, the day of the infamous phone call. The Dept of State received similar inquiries within a week, so Ukraine understood the situation on military aid right away.
One interesting but under-reported fact is the pressure on Zelensky began even before he was inaugurated
. The prospect of high level American officials attending his inauguration was conditioned on Zelensky announcing investigations into Hunter Biden. VP Pence abruptly cancelled his trip to that ceremony just before it started because the announcement had not been made.
