    Mulvaney said U.S. military aid for Ukraine was held up pending Ukraine’s investigation of Democrats

    The Trump Impeachment Inquiry: Latest News - The New York Times

    Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, told reporters that the release of military aid to Ukraine this summer was linked in part to White House demands that Ukraines government investigate what he called corruption by Democrats in the 2016 American presidential campaign.

    It was the first time a White House official has publicly acknowledged what a parade of current and former administration officials have told impeachment investigators on Capitol Hill.

    The look-back to what happened in 2016 certainly was part of the thing that he was worried about in corruption with that nation, Mr. Mulvaney told reporters, referring to Mr. Trump. And that is absolutely appropriate.

    He said that the aid was initially withheld because, Everybody knows this is a corrupt place, and the president was demanding Ukraine clean up its own government. But Mr. Trump also told Mr. Mulvaney that he was concerned about what he thought was Ukraines role in the 2016 campaign.

    A spotlight on the people reshaping our politics. A conversation with voters across the country. And a guiding hand through the endless news cycle, telling you what you really need to know.

    Did he also mention to me in passing the corruption related to the D.N.C. server? Absolutely. No question about that, he said. But thats it, and thats why we held up the money.
    Looks like there was an investigation into political rivals after all. I wonder if Sondland going CYA prompted this new stance.

    Innoculate the base so that when it comes out, they don't care.

    The facts do not support any legitimate reason to have gotten Rudy involved, other than specifically to go around the State Department (who was refusing), to try and get dirt on Biden as a pre-condition for a U.S./Ukraine meeting, for aid, etc.
    Mr. Trump told his Ukranian state department team of experts...who WERE concerned about corruption, that he didn't really believe them, and that they should go through Rudy...who was working with four corrupt felons...to understand what Trump really wants out of this.

    Mulvaney gets the Rudy Giuliani award for admitting to something Trump is denying.

    What a crew.

    You people at chasing your tails. He's going to get re-elected with a majority of Reaganesque proportions, it's already too late.

    Outstanding, Mulvaney just admits that the US was withholding the aid to Ukraine based on Ukraine investigating the Crowdstrike Theory, a CT hatched in Steve Bannon's little shop of CT horrors.

    I doubt this continued practice of crime and corruption in plain sight is going to hold.

    Just left the GOP on the Hill with their YO-YO's in their hands.

    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.

    Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if
    you can look into it... It sounds horrible to me.

    Red meat for the cannibals; denials incoming. The Trumpists are a sordid bunch.

    No forgiveness here remains.
