Fox Host Chris Wallace Eviscerates Mick Mulvaney: You Admitted That Trump Extorted Ukraine, Here’s The Tape

The Hill reports:

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney insisted he never said the Trump administration expected a quid pro quo between U.S. aid to Ukraine and that Kiev launching investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden during a withering interview on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace.

“You were asked specifically by Jonathan Karl was investigating Democrats one of the conditions for holding up the aid, was part of the quid pro quo, and you said ‘it happens all the time,'” Wallace said, referring to the ABC reporter who had questioned Mulvaney on Thursday.

Mulvaney conceded that he could see how people took his comments “the wrong way” but again insisted he never used the words “quid pro quo.” He also said that the fact that the aid to Ukraine was eventually sent should “put the matter to bed.”
