FOREIGN AID/MILITARY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE/UKRAINE: “President Donald Trump’s withholding of $391 million in military aid to Ukraine was linked to his request that the Ukrainians look into a claim – debunked as a conspiracy theory – about the 2016 U.S. election, a senior presidential aide said on Thursday [10-17-19], the first time the White House acknowledged such a connection. Trump and administration officials had denied for weeks that they had demanded a ‘quid pro quo’ – a Latin phrase meaning a favor for a favor – for delivering the U.S. aid, a key part of a controversy that has triggered an impeachment inquiry in the House of Representatives against the Republican president.
