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."

Fire the prosecutor or you're not going to get $1 Billion.

Where have we heard that before?
Among the other countless lies bouncing around in the right wing echo chamber

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....

Trump wanted a conspiracy he'd heard about from idiots drummed up for political reasons. Only a right wing retard would make the claim this was never about Biden.

Biden is on tape saying that
If he lied on that tape he doesn't belong to WH.
If he didn't lie on that tape he's a real crook and belongs to prison, not to WH.

Liberals, wake up, listen to that darn tape where he brags about firing the Ukrainian prosecutor.

So, Mulvaney admits there was a quid pro quo.

More commie lies, Mulvaney stated the three reasons aid was being withheld and none of them concerned slow uncle joe.

Do we need to provide you the link to the video of Biden saying EXACTLY THAT? This is SOP for US government we have been dispensing billions to foreign governments for decades and EVERY ADMINISTRATION uses that as leverage. That certainly includes the Obama administration.

In a secret interview, Rep. Adam Schiff, leader of the House Democratic effort to impeach President Trump, pressed former United States special representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker to testify that Ukrainian officials felt pressured to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter as a result of Trump withholding U.S. military aid to Ukraine.


Volker denied that was the case, noting that Ukrainian leaders did not even know the aid was being withheld and that they believed their relationship with the U.S. was moving along satisfactorily, without them having done anything Trump mentioned in his notorious July 25 phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

When Volker repeatedly declined to agree to Schiff's characterization of events, Schiff said, "Ambassador, you're making this much more complicated than it has to be."
Schiff pushed Volker to say Ukraine felt pressure from Trump

The investigation was into a Ukrainian utility company.

Thanks for playing.
