Sources: Mick Mulvaney on shaky ground in wake of whistleblower fallout

 

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney is on shaky ground in the wake of a bad week for President Trump, according to multiple sources with knowledge of discussions surrounding the whistleblower fallout.

The sources say the President is not upset with Mulvaney for the White House releasing the summary of his July 25 call with Ukraine's leader or the whistleblower complaint because he had been convinced that it was necessary.

What Trump and other aides are frustrated with, according to the sources, is that Mulvaney did not have a strategy for defending and explaining the contents of those documents as soon as they were publicly released.

CNN's Victor Blackwell discusses Mulvaney's standing with Politico's Daniel Strauss.

  1. *Mulvaney’s in hot water with Donny. Looks like he didn’t lie fast enough*

  2. Mulvaney was on shaky ground once he sold his soul, and that was some time ago.

  3. Mulvaney is toast. So is Giuliani. Stay tuned.

  4. Whitehouse denies it, so we can expect him to be fired next week.

  5. Deluded Jackass Trump is throwing a tantrum and clutching at straws like a drowning man! R.I.P.

  6. I’m gonna be so busy working for myself, I won’t have time to figure out a way to help the homeless, Puerto Rico, The Bahamas, GM laid off workers, coal miners, immigrant children and dozens of formerly best people. Oooooh, and Melania’s son.

  7. If you read the comments on his Twitter posts you can clearly see the American people are fed up and do NOT believe his lies. Its pretty hilarious

    • @Pejotade Fotografia as far as the thousands of comments on his Twitter account The MAJORITY of those comments are Americans FOR Impeachment

    • @Pejotade Fotografia as far as Fox news commenting they very much sound deranged all was with the whataboutisim
      And praising Fox commentators that are pro Trump and bashing calling for great harm to the Fox news journalist telling the truth

    • @Pejotade Fotografia you traitors are bad at math, huh?

    Poor Mulvaney !
    He should have known that the Master is rotten.

  9. Who cares if Mulvaney is in trouble he wanted that job.

  10. I am a veteran, I use the VA as my primary health care, I can tell you that it isn’t fixed.

    • I am convinced that Dan Coats absolutely threw up a flare and likely is our Whistleblower that will surely impeach this treasonous president.

    • @Boss Ladiee I though that at first, too, but Coats said he left the day before the whistleblower complaint was filed and he knew nothing about it. Unlucky timing. If he had remained as DNI, this would have all come out six weeks ago, and he would have known better than to go to the WH and DoJ for advice.

    • @Astrobrant2 Coats and his counterpart (Sue Gordon’s) last day was August 15, whistleblower letter dated Aug 14., I think – one of the two are the heros – I believe.

    • @Boss Ladiee I was guessing one of them, too, but Coats says he never saw the complaint or knew anything about it. Maybe Gordon did. I have also just seen today that the whistleblower is someone in the CIA. I’m not sure how reliable that is.

  11. No surprise Donnie wants to throw random people under the bus.

    • @America is great Because it’s good – I see that your answer to whether you can maintain an honest argument is surely “no”, because I find it hard to believe that you honestly don’t understand “paraphrasing”.

      @X Million hey bro you are entitled to your opinion. It’s all good man. Time will tell. I just honestly believe all this is another publicity stunt. Take care.

    • @America is great Because it’s good – Well let’s get down to brass tacks here. Do you support a person who has evincibly performed in so many ways that are against the norms of the office and that are so contrary to what we expect from that office, especially insofar as what is in the best interest of the nation?

    • @America is great Because it’s good – Are you unaware that the “transcript” is itself a paraphrasing of the call and not a verbatim rendition? By your reasoning, the folks who provided the “transcript” are also liars then.

  12. LOL! They are turning on each other! They are going to rat each other out and they are going to blame each other.

      @Ng Yee Tat The Dems, the Squad? Who cares as far impeachment they won’t get it they don’t have anything you demtart

    • I AGREE THE DEMS ARE ALREADY TURNING ON ONE ANOTHER LIKE DOGS, THEY KNOW THE ARRESTS ARE COMING AND THEIR RUNNING SCARED.

  13. Donnie Bone-Spurs melting down in broad daylight…LOLOLOLOL…

  14. LOCK THEM ALL UP AMERICA 🇺🇸
    This is a putin installed criminal enterprise folks, DONTHECON is running the con of his life

    • Sheik Yo Booty True! And all his defenders in this thread follow the same linguistic patterns and use same phrases—almost as if one person has cloned multiple accounts, ie bots, trolls, and parrot people.

    • @Ms. Q
      Rural ignorant GOP redstate racists need education and mental healthcare not guns and walls😀 maga fools

    • The entire Trumpian base (not all Republicans) have shown us how poorly our education system is functioning.. more worried about their status than using that flap of skin they call a brain.

      To rid of the rot, you must first recognize it in the first place.

    • JUST BY YOUR NAME I SEE YOUR HEART………. JESUS LOVES YOU

  15. In any country with a half-decent constitution and an independent judiciary Mulvaney would be just one of the many people that would spend the rest of their lives in prison for treason.

    • You don’t even know what treason is ….

    • @Kevin Mcneil — Ah yes, that must be the reason I’m a Dutch law professor who has written extensively about constitutions (real ones, I mean … not the garbage the USA thinks is a constitution).

  16. There’s so much cover-up in Trump’s administration, they could start a make-up line!

  17. Remember the time when Mulvaney himself described Trump as a “terrible human being”…? Hahahaha….

      America is great Because it’s good Nobody hates trump he’s just incompetent. Who would want. Worship an inçopetent? Except a sycophants? Or someone death, dumb and blind.And even they have Suprised people whit their intelligence. If you have all these gifts , why put your faith in a president who dose not follow the laws you have to and knows nothing about them and won’t bother to learn them?

    • America is great (but NOT because of Trump): it’s not a false narrative at all. The memo of the call is public information. So is the whistleblower’s report, which has been fully corroborated. Anyone can read them. These events absolutely happened. You can deny reality if you want, but the argument that the only appropriate remedy is to beat Trump in an election is no longer valid because Trump is trying very hard to solicit foreign interference from Ukraine, Russia and others so that the election is neither free nor fair. Under these circumstances, impeachment is now the only appropriate response.

    • One thing that is exceedingly obvious is that Billionaire Socialist Lobbyist bring nothing but disaster.

    • When? Us that another i heard that friend of a friend of my uncle said to my aunt tha he heard from someone that blag blah…

    • Yes Mick and Lindsay are toast. They should have stuck to their first instincts

    We can be grateful for Rudy Colludy not being able to keep his mouth shut.

    • Guliani will be funneling the evidence into the DOJ …. Oh wait, the DOJ already HAS all of the evidence they need …. bye, bye Bidens. Your 6 x 10 cells are waiting for you ….. .https://youtu.be/CBahlLQqyiE

    • @Perry Walton You obviously have not seen the video of JOE BIDEN BRAGGING ABOUT EXTORTING THE UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT at a Council on Foreign Relations meeting? We know that 💩NN has not SHOWN THAT VIDEO. Nor will they EVER show the video. But it is widely available to anyone who wants to actually SEE JOE BIDEN BRAGGING ABOUT EXTORTING THE GOVERNMENT OF UKRAINE FOR HIS OWN PROFIT, namely the billion dollar profit of his son, who laundered money to his father…. the DOJ HAS THE RECORDS. Biden WILL BE CHARGED. This is NOT political. This is justice. The kind of justice that the demo-craps say they want, but never want it for their own ….. 🤔 https://youtu.be/CBahlLQqyiE

    • @Music Sponge US and European Union working on Ukraine at the time wanted this prosecutor gone, because he was NOT prosecuting corruption. So did the IMF. This didn’t come from Joe Biden – he just delivered the US message.
