Mulvaney again denies Trump-Ukraine quid pro quo

Pelosi said Mulvaney's comments are an example of the White House trying to normalize lawlessness.

A journalist in the room then shot back, "Let's be clear, what you just described is a quid pro quo".

"I read the opening statement, and everything that followed, as Mr. Sondland engaging in a C.Y.A. operation for himself", Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., said.

"It's quite concerning, and I think we're going to get more information as we're seeing this happen rapidly", Kinzinger said Friday on CNN.

Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who has been highly critical of the president's recent withdrawal of troops in Syria, indicated this week that he supports the House impeachment investigation into Trump's interactions with Ukraine, though he does not support impeaching the president yet, and won't make a decision without all the facts. "It depends what the objective is", Kinzinger said.

Mulvaney's admission came after current and former administration officials revealed in congressional testimony that a White House meeting between Trump and Zelensky was also being conditioned on Ukraine launching politically charged investigations.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski condemned the administration's alleged conversations with Ukraine after learning of Mulvaney's comments. "Period", the Alaska Republican said Thursday. Speaking to the investigators as part of House Democrats' impeachment inquiry, Sondland made this comment. They accused the president of once again violating the Constitution's Emoluments Clause, which states that, "without the Consent of the Congress", a sitting president may not "accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind [whatsoever]" from a foreign leader or country or from US government agencies. The conservative conspiracy theory has been widely debunked.

Mulvaney tried to put critics' concerns to rest by saying Trump will be operating the global event "at cost" and without profit, thus making the final bill for the government "dramatically cheaper" than compared to the other dozen sites that White House officials considered across the country. "The only reasons we were holding the money was because of concern about lack of support from other nations and concerns over corruption", Mulvaney said in the statement.

Aware of the firestorm acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney created, the White House quickly issued a clarification; Kevin Corke reports from the White House.

The inspiration for the shirt: Critics went after Mulvaney for appearing to have contradicted President Trump's claim that there was "no quid pro quo" when the key presidential aide told reporters Thursday that military assistance to Ukraine would be withheld unless the country cooperated with the U.S. Justice Department's investigation into the 2016 election. I did not and would not ever participate in such undertakings.
