Rep. Stefanik: Two Key Facts – Ukraine Received Aid And There Was No Investigation Into Bidens

REP. ELISE STEFANIK: Thank you. For the millions of Americans viewing today, the two most important facts are the following. Number one, Ukraine received the aid. Number two, there was, in fact, no investigation into Biden. Mr. Kent and Ambassador Taylor, you both spoke eloquently and passionately about the need to support Ukraine to counter Russian aggression, particularly during this very critical time. I agree with you in that assessment. And isn’t it the case that the Trump Administration has, indeed, provided substantial aid to Ukraine in the form of defensive lethal aid? Correct?

AMB. BILL TAYLOR: That is correct.

REP. STEFANIK: And that is more so than the Obama Administration, correct?

AMB. TAYLOR: The Trump Administration–

REP. STEFANIK: Defensive lethal aid.

AMB. TAYLOR: Yes.

REP. STEFANIK: And in the transcript of the President’s July 25th call with President Zelensky, President Zelensky tells Trump they are ready to buy more Javelins. This is, indeed, the most effective weapon for fighting insurgent armor Russian tanks. Is that correct?

AMB. TAYLOR: That is correct.

REP. STEFANIK: And those Javelins were not made available to Ukraine under the Obama Administration.

AMB. TAYLOR: So–

REP. STEFANIK: The Javelins were not made available.

AMB. TAYLOR: They were not.
