Bill Hagerty is a Gallatin native and a candidate for the U.S. Senate. He also served as Ambassador to Japan, which means he has a valuable perspective on how we should maintain relations with our allies around the world. 

As he asks for our vote, we deserve to know his answers to important questions. Here is one of them.

Is it acceptable for a president to withhold Congressionally-approved military assistance to an ally to obtain dirt on a political rival?

It’s a yes or no question, Mr. Ambassador.
