Did President Trump direct OMB to violate the Impoundment Control Act?


There's two questions here. First, did the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) violate the Impoundment Control Act? Second, did President Trump direct such a violation?

I think the answer to both questions is yes.

As of today, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) also says OMB violated the law. Read their decision here: https://www.gao.gov/products/B-331564

I would prefer we leave out the question of whether impoundment is an impeachable offense. That can have it's own thread.
