A group of House Republicans, led by Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, has introduced legislation to audit funds appropriated by Congress to Ukraine, the Daily Caller has learned.
The House Resolution by Rep. Greene obtained by the Daily Caller is co-sponsored by GOP Reps. Matt Gaetz, Paul Gosar, Thomas Massie, Andy Biggs, Barry Moore, Matt Rosendale, Andrew Clyde, Dan Bishop, Greg Steube and Clay Higgins. Republican Lawmakers are requesting that all documents and communications pertaining to Ukraine funding be sent no later than 14 days after the adoption of the resolution. The request covers all military, civilian and financial aid given to Ukraine under President Biden.
Congresswoman Greene told the Daily Caller that “the American people deserve [to know] where their hard earned tax dollars are going to a foreign country who is not a member of NATO and President Biden himself said he would not defend.” She is also seeking to investigate what she says is “outrageous corruption” surrounding Democratic megadonor Sam Bankman-Fried’s crypto exchange FTX and its alleged ties to the Ukrainian government.
It is heartbreaking to see these disabled Ukrainian soldiers here in the halls of Congress being used as pawns to pressure our Congress to give American’s hard earned tax dollars to Zelensky.

The Biden administration has requested $37.7 billion in additional funds for Ukraine including $21.7 billion for defense purposes and $14.6 billion to fund the government and provide humanitarian aid, CNBC reported. Greene previously promised that “not another penny” will go to Ukraine in a Republican controlled congress at an Iowa Trump rally before the midterm elections, The Hill reported.
