Impeachment Circular Firing Squad? See Trump's Allies Turn On Aide Who Admitted Ukraine Plot | MSNBC 1

 

Trump’s White House is in damage control mode as they attempt to clean up Mick Mulvaney’s admittance of a quid pro quo during a press conference. Nick Akerman, former Watergate prosecutor, argues it is ‘absurd’ for the White House to ‘try to back off’ Mulvaney’s ‘terrible damning confession.’ Ackerman adds Mulvaney’s confession was ‘a very conscious effort by Donald Trump’ to have an aide ‘admit’ a crime in public to give himself ‘wiggle room.’ Aired on 10/18/19.

  1. Wow the Trump cult is insane!

    • @enRuTuu 60 they can be both

    • @Maria Hartmann what kind of question is that? Do you believe everything people tell you? That has nothing to do with it. Did people believe everything Obama said? I’m afraid a lot of them did and he lied to him like me somebody who voted for him. I believe in what trumps doing for this country he has exposed the corruption in Washington. Anyone that can try to deny that they didn’t try to remove this president is sadly mistaken. You tell me one of the Democrats done since Trump’s been in office except try to remove them tell me one positive thing they’ve done for this country. You can’t because they haven’t. Your ignorance is overwhelming

    • @Kevin stevens sorry pal I was educated in a time where there wasn’t indoctrination. You’re the only one that’s delusional because you are un educated. Tell me exactly what’s garbage accept the things you’re spewing you sound like a talking head for the mainstream media.

    • @Kevin stevens we’ll see what a conspiracy theory is when William Barr gets done with this investigation. Your ignorance is overwhelming

    • @aa5a9ak really what would they be saying if there was a video of trump saying that he was going to have the prosecutor removed or withhold money. Your ignorance is abundant

    Sometimes when you pee in the pool you just gotta pretend it’s a hot tub.

  3. Send Rudy out to do the rounds, he’ll clear it all up. 😄

    They seem to have sawdust in their heads instead of brains.

  5. Way to go Mick keep talking and bury everyone in the White House.

  6. Apparently the Trump team thought this was going to be a winning catchphrase…oops 😀😀

    • Tessmage Tessera would love to

    • DrMossydog Hahahaha okay guy good luck taking on a military who spends more than the next ten countries combined. I’m sure you’ll make a difference

      Tessmage Tessera Not really a helpful comment that. You are playing right in to their hands

    • @Tessmage Tessera aren’t you tough…take a chill pill
      Violence only creates more violence, I like you passion and you’re on the right side but I question your methods.

    • @Tessmage Tessera yeah you responded to the 1st comment. Then I responded. You respond to that by saying you already responded lol. But ok. I apologize in my ignorance in thinking that a conversation/debate was a back and forth. Have a nice day.

  7. When Mick told the truth it became a problem for Trump. That’s how you know Trump needs to go to jail

    “Getting rid of Giuliani still leaves the chief capo ….” Got that right!

    Gotta love how 99% of Republicans that agree with the impeachment are former officials. Just goes to show how spineless the GOP is right now.

    Remember. Republicans feel that they are under no obligation to tell the truth.

    • Scrambled Eggs Because good americans are doing nothing! They will go as far as people allow them to before they wake up & act ugh :o(

    • elc good point, unfortunately, we have now let things get so far that the evil have their own propaganda network i.e. Fox, they are organized and they have an agenda. We dems have sniveling little cowards up in Washington hiding under their desks and only peeking their head out if they think that maybe they won’t get hurt. There are so few of them that even understand what it is to do their duty but I have little hope

    • @Mainely
      Time good americans finally make the sacrifice, flood the streets, & STAY THERE until they FORCE the @GOP to put country 1st!
      Pressure works!
      Time to stop daily routine & waiting for someone else to fix this horror!
      Please! While there’s something left to save! ENOUGH!

  12. Seems like that lawyer of TRUMPs is trying to give Trump wiggle room, while he fires guiliani ” I fired him because my lawyer suggested it.

    “Hi, I’m a criminal working for a mobster, what’s it to ya?”.

  14. “Get over it.”

    “Well, I guess my job was only temporary anyway”–Love Mick

  15. They lie and deny even the gun is still smoking.

    The mistake they make is to think the majority of voters are as stupid as the trumpsters.

    I think he is the third whistle blower, the difference he’s not hiding his Identity lol

  18. Put a Nazi uniform on Mulvaney and he looks like Himmler

    Kevin McCarthy is devoid of anything resembling honour.

  20. Kevin McCarthy can’t even say Quid Pro Quo, three times he said “Quick Pro Quo”, if he can’t say it, he probably doesn’t even know what it means.
