The 4 Most Eye-Popping Statements Mulvaney Made On G-7 And Ukraine

The 4 Most Eye-Popping Statements Mulvaney Made On G-7 And Ukraine

The summit will take place at the Trump National Doral Miami from June 10-12th, acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said.

Mulvaney brushed aside criticism that the president's businesses and brand will benefit from selecting his property for the high-stakes event.

Even so, Sondland says he felt he had no choice but to work with Giuliani if he hoped to set up a meeting between Trump and Zelensky, but he insists he "did not understand, until much later, that Mr. Giuliani's agenda might have also included an effort to prompt the Ukrainians to investigate Vice President Biden or his son".

The White House is acknowledging that President Donald Trump asked Ukraine's leader to investigate his country's role in meddling in the 2016 US presidential campaign.

In perhaps his most shocking comment of the presser, Mulvaney admitted that Trump mentioned a conservative conspiracy theory about the DNC and Russian election meddling in 2016 while discussing his decision to hold up aid for Ukraine. We were holding up money at the same time for, what was it, the Northern Triangle countries. "And that is absolutely appropriate".

House Democrats, who are investigating whether the president engaged in a political quid pro quo when he asked the new Ukraine president to do a "favor", immediately called it an admission of guilt.

"Are you saying that it's okay for the USA government to hold up aid and require a foreign government to investigate political opponents of the president?" a reporter asked Mulvaney during the press briefing. But a senior Justice Department official told Fox News that the department had no idea what Mulvaney was talking about.

The president's personal attorney Jay Sekulow also distanced the legal team from Mulvaney's remarks, telling CNN, "The legal team was not involved in the Acting Chief of Staff's press briefing".
