Mick Mulvaney tries to walkback quid pro quo after admitting it 1


White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney tried to walkback a stunning admission he made hours earlier when he confirmed that President Donald Trump froze nearly $400 million in US security aid to Ukraine in part to pressure that country into investigating Democrats.

  1. Mickey Mouse Mulvaney will resign. It’s only a matter of time.

    • @Ash Roskell Who is the whistleblower(s) we know of two? Who was the original? Who was the one who read the transcript and then INJECTED his own words? Who are the people who won’t let the voting PUBLIC see them? and their testimony? Twisting to fit their agenda AGAIN. I come to CNN as it is NOT A SOURCE THAT CAN BE TRUSTED IN NEWS. I research and don’t like the attempt they brainwash their viewers. Project Veritas expose them…. Good JOB!

    • @KarlBunker Didn’t matter on Obama/Clinton/Kerry/Biden/Pelosi so your point is???

    • @Sheik Yo Booty So, just like the Demonrat party you hate your own countrymen and women. Yep about par for the course!

    • @katkanuck Keep typin’ up a storm, dumbass. I’m sure CNN appreciates the support (comments = “engagement,” which is one of the metrics of a channel’s popularity), and who knows, maybe Putin will give you a raise!

    Next up on the resignation list…. Mulvaney. He can’t recover from this. Bye Felicia.

    • @Jose Villasenor I get that…but we stuck our nose in to “train the kurds to defend themselves” when they are up against an evil empire and then we…POOF…expect miracles from the underdog? We all know how things will turn out for the Kurds if they don’t have help. They will be annihilated and ISIS will be that much stronger. It’s kind of a world thing and involves our safety too.

    Mick Mulvaney literally had multiple chances to take that back, and actually confirmed it even more🤣

    • @Justin TX1988 good example would be holding funding until a country stops committing human rights violations

      you seem to think that would be a bad thing because it can be classified as a quid pro quo

      not sure how you became this blind and wilfully misunderstand language its a little sad


    • Daish Lives In Shithole Russia At The Troll Farm Getting Paid In Russian Turds

    • @Daish , why are you pretending the circumstances of this exchange aren’t relevant? It’s the fact that Trump, himself, was pushing for this investigation into his political rivals that makes this such an offense. The quid pro quo aspect just cements the nature and pressure of the negotiation. An example of being “blind” and willfully ignorant is not realizing that we have federal processes for investigating political corruptions that involve foreign entities and MLAT which establishes joint investigations with other nations. These processes were intentionally bypassed, which stains any potentially legitimate concerns with partisanship and personal vendettas.

    • @dennis wolff investigate everyone why complain about people being investigated

      this is perplexing

  5. *Trump* – “I barely know Mulvaney, my White House Chief of Staff. I only had some minor dealings with him.”

    • @Dong LeMoan I don’t deserve your pity. I know the truth ,you’re the pitiable

    • @Gerry Swaim yes..they also believe pro wrestling is real. There are a lot of them out there..kinda scary.

    • l  first you made me laugh but then I read the rest. You’re right in their world Democrats lie and trump always tells the truth. Very scary but I think we might have trump on the run.Best of everything to you

    • @Gerry Swaim k bye shot bus

    • @Gerry Swaim Democrats are up against a lot of huge lobbyists groups and big money…and a narcissistic leader with a huge load of numb skull, brainwashed followers. This combination is pretty powerful. Look at how far Hitler got. There is a method to Trump’s madness. It seems to be working astoundingly well. I fear that with the electoral college and his targeting the states he needs to win the electoral votes he will pull it off again. I hope not but I’m seeing a strong possibility.

  6. Lie, deny, point to the media and cry. Orwellinism1984 at its best

    • that’s what was said about Michael Obama. Joan Rivers 2014

    • @RihannaIsIluminati “” the mounting evidence of Trump’s guilt” – what “guilt”, parrot? Hillary smashed her computers and Dems are covering for her. Trump won, and that is his “guilt” from day one. You are pathetic. But, go on, you (not Trump) are destroying USA and us, the rest of the world, like it very much. Trump would be a tricky adversary to China and Russia, but you’re making it easy for them, How? Sorry, you are too stupid to understand that.

    • The MEDIA is Orwellian. It’s the equivalent of MiniTru. Read a book or two, get smarter. Then post, shill.

    • @RihannaIsIluminati Mounting manufactured evidence. You and your ilk will FAIL, again and again
      You have lost, RECONCILE.

  7. ”yes your Honour, I shot the victim in the head…but I have news for you : I do it all the time. Get over it ! ”

    • @Alla Veles But my emails LOL But my server LOL and a myriad of others she used. Most didn’t take the time to download the FACTUAL emails, the TRANSCRIPTS of text of the FBI/DOJ, etc. But CNN tells them all is good – TRUMP bad. Drain the swamp!

    • Anonymous Person That Came From Faux To Sub at CNN

    • Alla Veles Waiting For Mexico To Pay For Th e Wall… ..with gators too …..Republitard

    • katkanuck left faux news … to sub at CNN …. for the Painful Facts

    • @katkanuck but but..Clinton never wore blue dress with red heels…but but Killary never trafficked Haiti children, but but anyone who testified against Clintons always end up to be dead..but but. you are stupid.

  8. “lie, deny, then point to the media and cry” 😂

    • @John Roberts.. Name a single silly protest that republicans held because they were so upset like the clown demorats do daily. No actually Republicans actually wanted Obama to do well for the country as has every other election before Trump. Republicans were not attacking and assaulting people who were peacefully attending rallies for Obama, not one time unlike the bullying dummycrats who were at Trump rallies. They also never said on the day Obama became president that he has to be Impeached like the clown libtards have. The Rupublicans did not waste millions of dollars on a two and a half investigation to nowhere that produces zero evidence against Trump, no that would be the do nothing demorats again. No snowflake you can not compare the two in any way. Your snowflake status has been solidified in history, embrace it cause you sure earned it and no one can ever take that away from you. Good luck with your denial problem. Reality has obviously passed you by. Please record a reaction video on the day that President Trump is re-elected so I can play it on a 24 hour loop and laugh endlessly. Thanks you, we could have never done it without you.

    • @Rob R. you are SUCH a liar! Moscow Mitch said his only goal was to obstruct Obama at every turn and make him a one term president. Dems are not attacking or assaulting anyone, but you might remember that a member of the Right ran over and killed a woman. You are a fucking liar

      YOU ARE BEING LIED TO https://youtu.be/qbQwAQ0tDTQ

    • @Bovine One So what changed that POTUS had to release a transcript which no-one should have to do for the SAKE of National Security? Schiff added to it to set the narrative he believed would sway the minions. THE SAME GUY WHO SAID HE HAD 100% THAT RUSSIA WORKED WITH TRUMP.

  9. Mulvaney, “Look, the Master baker did it, everyone does it, get over it.” But only the Master baker does it in public.

  10. Trump is attempting to gas light the nation. We’re in an abusive relationship and we just keep making excuses.

  11. FAUX news will replace Shep with Alex Jones….. He’d fit right in with the flatearthers on FOX…

    • Nancy Rocks what if I don’t like either? If you are trying to call others brainwashed and then endorse OAN in the same sentence, that is absolutely hilarious haha

    • @Nancy Rocks three comments in rapid sucession, triggered by the truth much? Nacy you got rocks for brains pin head.

  12. They all just make money off of us arguing with each other like this.

    • Dale Gribble read the report….read the transcript…notice the absence of the republicans.,…stop redirecting and definitely stop drinking whatever Kool aid you’re drinking.

      Cuz people dont have the heart to stand up there scared and selfish dont see the bigger picture

    • @E Clouston Shill, deceived and stupid, right where they want you. Tool…

    • Yeah but, thanks in great part to reporters in a free press, they’re gonna get this slimeball.

    • dee nunyofukinbidness | October 18, 2019 at 11:30 AM | Reply

      @E Clouston @dale gribble guys guys guys relax youre both right. the republicans support corruption and double standards and the real puppet masters laugh when we fight about it.

  13. When you lie so much, telling the truth gets you in trouble.

  14. Mulvaney is tired of lying so he just admits to it. His neck is next on the chopping block of Trump. This is going to be fun to watch.

    • Quid Pro Quo = Something for something
      the something they got was a investigation into corruption?
      why is investigation corruption bad???????

      lets do a Quid Pro Quo to stop human rights abuse would you be against that? as well?

      maybe words and languages confuses you

    • @Dol l do you read what you write?
      “digs up dirt” is there dirt that exists have these people been doing something wrong?

      why would it be a bad thing how could that possibly be a bad thing

      you may be a little bias and it has kind of messed up the way you view the world =(

      i want more transparency for everyone in politics if there is dirt on any politician anywhere i would like it to be investigated its sad you don’t see it that way

    • @Daish you evidently didn’t read what I wrote. The president of the US withheld aid money that was US government authorized money to Ukraine unless they provided some dirt (if there was dirt) on Biden who is his opponent in the race for presidency. The only reason he did this, because Trump probably couldn’t care less, is because Biden is running against him in the race for presidency. This is even worse than what Nixon did. You just don’t seem to understand how seriously illegal this is. But I won’t continue to repeat myself. It’s evident it goes over your head. The presidency isn’t the only branch of government in the US. Trump doesn’t have the authority to do this. He is acting like he is the ultimate authority on EVERY decision. He is not. There are three equal branches of government and he doesn’t override the other two.

    • @Daish Trump did this to further his campaign not for transparency. I’m all for transparency.

    • @ Sarai La Fontaine You can’t copyright a short phrase or words that may happen to be arranged the same way. You can a book or song or movie/film but not a short phrase if that were the case none of us would be able to talk or write anything ever again. And what is your proof that Briana Anderson didn’t actually coin this phrase before Kimmel you know nothing of what she may have said or wrote down somewhere before Kimmels writers came up with that so if I were you I wouldn’t worry about it.

    • demon savage
      Little guy lol, Well I know what bathroom I’m supposed to go in and that goes along way in today’s world lol 😂 And I don’t watch CNN I just come here to troll idiots like you

    It’s difficult to remember all the lies they tell everyday, Moulveny everyone blackmails

  18. why is no one talking about the fact that mulvaney let slip during his podium rant that there is A TAPE of the ukraine call??

    • Nonya Bizness So what. We have the transcript which is the written dialog from the tape. Wow you liberals are done. All it will do is expose how all of you run around like chickens with your end cut off screaming sky is falling when it is just an acorn that fell on your overreactive libtard head. Wishful thinking only gets you fairy tales .

  19. Trump: Who is Mulvaney? I’ve never heard of him.

    Lie, Deny, point to the media and Cry in 2019.

  20. Rockin the Harry Potter glasses. And why not, everything he says is fiction anyway.
