(TRUMP and POMPEO, presumably: "This oughta keep Zelensky on-board and quiet")
PS/ For those confused by the timing (i.e., Ukraine requesting missiles weeks before the Trump-Zelensky call), remember that the first time Trump shook down Ukraine over Javelin missiles (in that case, because he corruptly wanted them to end 4 ongoing Manafort probes) was *2017*.
PS2/ So any implication Pompeo approving these new Javelin sales to Ukraine has nothing to do with a Trump-Ukraine shakedown that began in *2017* is ridiculous. This is an *ongoing course of criminal conduct* that absolutely did *not* begin on July 25, 2019. Don't get it twisted.
