    Trumpís acting chief of staff admits it: There was a Ukraine quid pro quo

    Trump’s acting chief of staff admits it: There was a Ukraine quid pro quo

    After weeks of President Trump and the White House suggesting there was no quid pro quo when it came to Trump asking Ukraine to launch specific investigations, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney came out Thursday and admitted there was.

    He just insisted it wasn’t a corrupt one.

    In a news conference, Mulvaney for the first time conceded that the lack of a Ukrainian inquiry into the origins of the Russia investigation played a role in the United States withholding military aid from it over “corruption” issues.

    "I have news for everybody: Get over it. There’s going to be political influence in foreign policy.”

    The quid pro quo involved Barisma and the Bidens'. And no Mick, we are not going to "get over it." The DOJ has already sent out a press release to all news outlets. "If there was a quid pro quo, we knew nothing about it"

    He denied the quid pro quo that you are claiming...that is, against a political opponent.

    Mulvaney isn't part of the DOJ and the DOJ isn't part of foreign policy.

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    Our forum compatriots will get over it soon enough, like immediately. The quid pro quo which was "nonsense" and a slander against the integrity of the President until Mulvaney gave the new taking point now will be, "well of course, why not."

    Hey, remember when we were all young and the phone call and the quid pro quo were fake news?

    Or it involved assistance into the investigation of the Russia probe. That after all, takes up the bulk of that transcript.
    Continue investigating.

    Right, but the texts included both issues - the 2016 stuff and Burisma/Biden, and when Trump spoke with Zelenskyy he mentioned both, and Rudy was focused on both.

    Trump lemmings might believe the aid issue was just the 2016 server CT and not also the Burisma/Biden issue that was consistently by everyone included as a two (2) point demand, but no one else is that dumb.

    Extortion of a desperate foreign government in order to affect the outcome of a political election is a crime.

    Fun (and weird) fact: despite Sekulow and Barr’s displeasure with Mulvaney’s admission, trump is pleased as punch. Anybody want to guess why?

    Trump supporters that don't give a damn about democracy or the US Constitution don't care. There's a real hard lesson in 'you might get what you ask for'
