Phillip: First of all why was he released? I get it that trump has the right to put who he wants in what ever positions, but why was he asked to resign? What was he not doing that trump feels someone else needs to do better? With that said lets look at this quote: He later told reporters that, “In the weeks after signing the certification I did become aware that the aid had been held. I never received a very clear explanation other than there were concerns about corruption in Ukraine.” So if we are not sure what exact corruption was being concerned about, why was the money released? Again what changed from the time that Trump put the money on hold, to the time he released what corruption was confirmed? Was it ever confirmed? If we have a sign off for the money saying they met all standards to receive, what info, what whistleblower, what anything came out to justify the hold?
