Mulvaney: Tries To Walks Back That Trump Held Up Ukraine Aid For Political Reason | Hardball | MSNBC 1

In a press briefing, Mick Mulvaney said that Trump froze US military aid because he wanted an investigation involving a DNC server and the 2016 campaign, undercutting the President's denial of a quid pro quo with Ukraine. Later, Mulvaney tried to take it all back. In a new statement he said, "There never was any condition on the flow of the aid related to the matter of the DNC server." Aired on 10/17/19.

    Prolonging the inevitable. This will be the last month of his presidency… he will resign

      @21baltus already has incited sedition with a civil war

    • That narcissistic moron doesn’t have the sense to resign before this all gets worse, his ego is way too big and he will try to lie and project right to end.

    • That would be total bliss ! It would be nice if he was exiled or decided to leave on his own. (wishful thinking) He needs to keep looking over his shoulder , someone might be following him who he owes money to. ( More wishful thinking) sigh.

    • @21baltus It surely has been hinted at by -45 and his minions. On YT as well.

  4. Mulvaney: is doing his job, Normalizing Crime!
    The Truth First,
    Then he did the Trump Tango!……….
    Business as Usual at Club Ovals, Office party! !

      @Ellen Anderson Everyone is so *mean* to the most powerful man in the world. He is the most unfairly bullied person alive (besides the First Lady, of course.)
      Oh, and the bullies are also *snowflakes,* who need a *safe space.*

    • Ronnie Caron Mulvaney wants out. Could he be the whistleblower?

    • 😎👹

    • @Ellen Anderson Unfortunately, his lies and deceptions are totally Acceptable,
      by his zombie cult followers, who don’t care what Dirty Tricks he plays, in order to win. all they care about is him willing at any cost,

  5. Trump, Mulvaney, and Rudy are like blind clowns, running around the White House lawn stepping on rakes.

    Remember “Election have Consequences” when you vote. Lots of people need trials.

  7. Nothing to see hear folks. Just a bunch of criminals running the government. Let’s ” get over it “. 🤷‍♂️

  8. I dont think they even know the difference between right and wrong. That’s why they blurt it out.

    • Trump certainly doesn’t. He thought the Ukraine call was a perfect call. He thinks the Erdogan letter was perfect as well.

    • I think when people are raised to obey abusive authority and accept gaslighting — rather than thinking for themselves about right and wrong, accepting personal responsibility for free choices — they really *don’t* know any better. They don’t understand that most other people will not accept, “We broke the law. Get over it,” right out in our faces. I feel sorry for people so morally lost. They must have had horrible childhoods, considering their utter lack of regard for the suffering of children at the border, in Syria and even poor children of this country. I hope we’re all learning a lot from this ordeal of a presidency.

    • @shantalynn well said, totally agree

  9. Oops sorry Mickey , no take backs 😉

  10. Observing the steady downward spiral of the Trump administration over the past three weeks has been absolutely fascinating.

  11. “Get over it!” That’s basically what Trumpies say about every instance of corruption and nastiness coming from this administration.

  12. This isn’t even funny anymore, These people needs to go, ASAP damnit!

  13. So if Giuliani is a hand grenade, Mulvaney is a Bouncing Betty.

    They claimed that if Hillery won, the investigations would never stop. They were right, she DID win the popular vote and they haven’t.

    • It’s the sort of accurately worded yet misleading prophecy of which Cassandra herself would be proud.

    • Karma is a terrible thing. Trump and his cohorts made HRC’s life miserable with the Bengazi investigations and the continuous attack on Obama over his birth certificate. Trump deserves and has earned ALL the grief he is getting right now and more.The thing is this guy is guilty.

      @Yolanda Denny Reality, something the Republicans currently in our Government TOTALLY ignore.

    • @Richie Tattersall You are so right Richie!

    • Richie Tattersall Agreed

  15. It sounds like Trump has people to blame for his mess. Not much of a leader!

  16. Yep, Trump hires the best corrupt people like him

    • i wouldn’t call them the best since they are all caught in the act the best crooks are sitting on the beach sipping coronas before the crime is discovered

    • If he hired the “best corrupt people)” they wouldn’t be getting caught all the time!
      They would be , committing perfect undetected crimes! haha

    • @Ronnie Caron not all crimes can go undetected but some can i’m speaking from experience planing and never pull a mulvaney is some good pointers, or a trump ronnie they really should not be crooks because their just not smart enough plus their schemes were to complicated and they had to many people involved the larger the web you spin the harder it is to protect

    This would all be hilarious if it wasn’t so damaging.

  18. Mulvaney seems like a weak character. If he gets fired for this. He’d be a good witness to subpoena and a little fear applied he’d flip to avoid prosecution

  19. How these people don’t believe in our laws is staggering.

    • They do believe in laws, but they are convinced that that are above law!.
      Donald (Simon says) Trump, lies and his zombie staff follows.
      i wonder what punishment Simon has in store for Mulvaney?
      Mulvaney: was doing his job, Normalizing Crime!
      Truth First,
      Then the Trump Tango!……….
      Business as Usual at the Club Ovals, Office party!

  20. This dude just lost his job. He’s a goner.
