In a perfect world, where any elected official that was proven to benefit from any form of stock trading faced a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years hard labor, and the same held true for any politician involved in foreign affairs who benefited monetarily from foreign interests, you would see a lot less interest in helping corrupt despots escape reaping what they have sewn.I agree. Why people insist on supporting Zelensky is beyond weird IMO. He's hailed as a hero by our current government, including many republicans. He has banned all his political opposition and has or is trying to ban a whole Christian sect. We have sent more money to Ukraine last year than we spent on road and bridge infrastructure in the whole US. And we have no accountability of where that money went or what it was spent on. Given the long known corruption in Ukraine, there is no doubt much of it went into the pockets of those highly connected in Ukraine.
