This week in the world of the Trump Administration gaffes seem to be the topic of the week. During a press conference earlier this week, Mick Mulvaney decided to take to the podium within the WH and declare that Trump did indeed withhold Ukrainian aid meanwhile demanding political hlp from the country.
Reporters asked Mulvaney during the conference about the particular situation in question, the response has certainly lit the internet up with demands that this be additional grounds for impeachment.
“That is it. And that is why we held up the money. … The look back to what happened in 2016 certainly was part of the thing that he was worried about in corruption with that nation. And that is absolutely appropriate,” Mulvaney said.
When pressed about election interference….
“I have news for everybody. Get over it, there is going to be political influence in foreign policy. That is going to happen,” Mulvaney said. “Elections have consequences. And foreign policy is going to change from the Obama administration to the Trump administration. And what you are seeing now, I believe, is a group of mostly career bureaucrats who are saying that I don’t like President Trump’s politics, so I’m going to participate in this witch hunt that they are undertaking on the Hill.”
