Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told the press Donald Trump used military aid to Ukraine as leverage to get the Ukrainian government to investigate Trump’s political opponents.
When asked if the aid was conditioned on investigating Democratic National Committee server, Mulvaney said, “We do it all the time.”
He denied it to Chris Wallace, but Wallace brought the receipts. #oops
“You were asked specifically by Jonathan Karl was investigating Democrats one of the conditions for holding up the aid, was part of the quid pro quo, and you said ‘it happens all the time,’” Wallace said.
Mulvaney claims since he himself never uttered the words ‘quid pro quo’ it can’t be pinned on him.
