J.D. Vance, Dan Bishop demanding transparency on amount of security assistance for Ukraine
U.S. Senator, J.D. Vance along with North Carolina Congressman, Dan Bishop are requesting transparency from the Biden administration on security assistance to Ukraine.
The senator and congressman sent a bicameral letter to White House Office of Management and Budget Director, Shalanda Young to request an expansion of the congressionally mandated crosscutting report on the amount of assistance being provided to Ukraine.
"It's very simple. The Biden Administration is required by law to send Congress this report at the end of the month. They should expand this report to tell us the amount of money we've sent to Ukraine, including comprehensive information showing how these funds were used," Vance wrote.
"Congress has shelled out more than $100 billion to support Ukraine since last February, yet we have zero insight into exactly what this money is being spent on. The American people deserve to know exactly where this money is going," Bishop added.
Other comments in the letter came from Heritage Action Vice President, Garrett Bess and former White House OMB Director and President of the Center for Renewing America, Russ Vought.
"As Heritage Action has said before, American taxpayers deserve a comprehensive strategy, accountability and oversight of the tens of billions of dollars of assistance that the United States has sent to Ukraine," said Bess.
Senate cosigners of the letter include Senators, Mike Braun, Bill Cassidy, Josh Hawley, Mike Lee, Cynthia Lummis and Rand Paul.
