CBS News reports:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell denied telling President Trump his July phone call with the Ukrainian president was “innocent,” as the president had indicated earlier this month. Asked on Tuesday whether he believes the president has handled the U.S. relationship with Ukraine “perfectly,” McConnell told CBS News he had not spoken to the president about the July 25 call with the Ukrainian president.
“I read Mitch McConnell’s statement yesterday, and he read my phone call. And, as you know, he put out a statement that said that was the most innocent phone call he’s read. And I spoke to him about it, too,” Mr. Trump said at the time. “He read my phone call with the president of Ukraine. Mitch McConnell, he said, ‘That was the most innocent phone call that I’ve read.’ I mean, give me a break.”
It’s hard to keep track of a snowball, isn’t it? McConnell contradicts Trump: We’ve never spoken about Zelensky callhttps://t.co/huhvKMDxdo
