    The acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney admitted on Thursday that President Donald Trump withheld foreign aid in order to get Ukraine’s help in the U.S. election.

    “We do that all the time with foreign policy,” Mulvaney responded when a reporter pointed out that withholding funding from Ukraine “unless the investigation into the Democrats’ server happens” is a “quid pro quo.”

    “Get over it,” he added later. “There’s going to be political influence in foreign policy. ... That is going to happen. Elections have consequences.”

    Mulvaney Acknowledges Quid Pro Quo In Trump Ukraine Call, Says ‘Get Over It’

    So, Mulvaney admits there was a quid pro quo. Get over it, he says. Sounds like he is trying to normalize criminal behavior.

    Nixon: "I'm not a crook!"
    Trump: "Yeah I'm a crook. So what?"

    This is the standard aristocratic response to the peasantry. "Yeah the entire system's crooked as fuck, get over it, america is a lie; one big fuggin' lie, get over it."

    Grow up. The DOJ wanted help with investigating the DNC server. There was never a quid pro quo over the idiot Biden.

    Withholding military aid to get an investigation on your political opponent is not going to go well with independent voters...

    The Impeachment numbers are going to go up dramatically....
