The New York Times Reports: Mulvaney Says, Then Denies, That Trump Held Back Ukraine Aid as Quid Pro Quo
Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, said that the White House withheld almost $400 million in military aid to Ukraine to help Trump's political interests.
“Did [Trump] also mention to me in passing the corruption related to the D.N.C. server? Absolutely. No question about that. That’s why we held up the money.”
“I have news for everybody: Get over it. There’s going to be political influence in foreign policy,” he said, adding, “Elections have consequences.”
Mulvaney's blatant admittance of quid pro quo highlights even more the importance of getting corruption out of Washington. The For the People Act, which aims to reduce government corruption, was passed by the House and continues to be ignored by the Senate.
Call your Representatives today and ask what they're doing to combat corruption in Washington.
