The U.S. Government Accountability Office is known as the “congressional watchdog,” The GAO examines how taxpayer dollars are spent and provides Congress and federal agencies with information to help the government save money, work more efficiently, and save taxpayers billions of dollars. The comptroller general who heads the GAO serves that position for 15 years.
Question – If the GAO’s purpose is to watch government spending and save money, why is the GAO sticking its nose into the current impeachment proceedings which have nothing to do with saving taxpayer money?
In September 2010, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, submitted to President Obama the names of four people to be considered for heading the GAO. Three were Democrats and one was Republican. In December 2010, Obama appointed Gene Dodaro, a Democrat, who was one of the four.
The GAO is supposed to be non-partisan. Why did the GAO just now – on the day Nancy Pelosi sent the impeachment documents to the Senate -- report that President Trump could not delay payment of millions of taxpayer dollars to the government of Ukraine. Why did the GAO stick its nose into something that isn’t its business? Is the GAO being non-partisan?
In his phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, President Trump stated that he was not asking for any favors from Ukraine when he asked Zelensky to consider investigating the corruption by Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden. Unfortunately the Democratic impeachment circus continues.
