The Senate has passed a $95 billion “national security bill,” but Glenn Beck believes it should actually be called a foreign war bill, as it does less for the border than it does for foreign countries.
However, that’s not the end of it.
Senator J.D. Vance is under the impression that this bill could give Democrats a powerful tool if Donald Trump were to win the 2024 presidential election — as there is a hidden clause within it.
The hidden clause would give Democrats the ability to impeach Trump if he tried to stop funding Ukraine.
“Using a weird archaic rule from the Impound Control Act, the Democrats argued in 2019 that because money had been appropriated to Ukraine,” Vance explains to Glenn, “and because Trump had refused to spend the money as appropriated, he had actually violated the law.”
Vance goes on to tell Glenn that what the Democrats have done with this law is appropriate money not just through the end of 2024, but into 2025 and 2026.
“So if Trump again refused to give the money that was appropriated to Ukraine in exactly the manner prescribed, they would not have just a similar but the exact same argument for impeaching him in 2025,” he says.
“It would be absurd and spurious, and we would hopefully defeat it, but we shouldn’t give the Democrats weapons, because they might stupidly use them,” Vance warns.
Glenn isn’t pleased with this hidden clause nor the bill itself.
“This is a wrong-headed bill,” he says. “It will be discovered at some point: Who enriched themselves? What NGOs enriched themselves, what politicians enriched themselves, where did all this money go?”
“It will be revealed; it’s just a matter of time,” he adds.
