Democrats' claim that the Trump administration broke America's promise to protect Ukraine from Russia by withholding military aid is just an example of the party's hypocrisy, Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, claimed Thursday.
"The Democratic House Managers hypocrisy is on full display," Ernst wrote on Twitter on Thursday evening, after Day 3 of Trump's Senate impeachment trial. "Theyve spent most of their time lecturing the Senate on aid to Ukraine, yet four of them voted AGAINST legislation that provided the very same aid theyre lecturing us on."

And military funding to Ukraine," she said during a break from President Trumps impeachment trial earlier Thursday, reminding reporters that Crimea was invaded in 2014 during the Obama administration.
Ernst told reporters the Obama administration reacted to the invasion by sending blankets.

Well you throw it over the Russian soldiers’ heads while they’re driving and it can cause catastrophe.
So, who were the four?
Why is she shocked? If Democrats had standards, they wouldnt be Democrats.
Would love to know who they were! It seems really important.
I’m thinking it must be safe now for the GOP Senators to come out of hiding.
They have been hiding since GWB 2006 blow out
Okay, found it.
“On Friday, Joni Ernst called out the impeachment managers who voted against aiding Ukraine. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who is an impeachment manager, along with House Democratic Reps. Zoe Lofgren of California, Sylvia Garcia of Texas and Hakeem Jeffries of New York, all were either opposed or didnt vote for national defense bills that included lethal aid to Ukraine.”
I believe the 2020 election will be a bloodbath similar to what happened in Britain. If the GOP would adopt an "every State, every district" strategy (they say they will, but won't), I could see them gaining huge in the House and even picking up seats in the Senate (making it RINO-proof).
This is a big deal because Ernst was a prime candidate to backstab the President. Even though shes up for reelection, I believe she is genuinely angry at Dems and even at some RINOs based on this and several other of her interviews.
That phone better be re-elected. I swear that some FREEPERS like you are working hard to give the senate to the democrats. It so stupid and you did this with the house in 2018.
The tape of Biden talking about threatening to withhold military aid to Ukraine unless a prosecutor investigating his son’s cash cow was fired must be played over, and over, and over...with the caption, “Joe Biden, in his own words, doing what they have falsely accused President Trump of doing.”
Nice to hear but about 3 months too late.
These facts were widely known. The GOP could not have been less interested in follow them until now. Now why could that be? Obviously now there is no pressure on the GOP Senate to gather facts and defend POTUS with Trump’s team doing the heavy lifting. I think what is going on here is Ernst is giving cover to herself and her fellow GOP Senators who are about to vote to acquit.
