White House officials testify that acting chief of staff Mulvaney helped arrange the quid pro quo effort with Ukraine
The impeachment inquiry into President Trump continues in the House. Follow here for the latest news.
Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney answers questions during a briefing at the White House on October 17, 2019. Win McNamee/Getty ImagesFiona Hill, the former National Security Council staffer responsible for Russia and Ukraine, told lawmakers during her testimony that it became clear during a July 10 meeting at the White House that an Oval Office visit for Ukraine’s president was contingent on him opening an investigation into President Trump’s political rivals.
Hill told lawmakers that Gordon Sondland, the US Ambassador to the European Union, said there was an agreement with acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney that “they would have a White House meeting or, you know, a Presidential meeting, if the Ukrainians started up these investigations again.”
“Ambassador Sondland, in front of the Ukrainians, as I came in, was talking about how he had an agreement with Chief of Staff Mulvaney for a meeting with the Ukrainians if they were going to go forward with investigations,” Hill said.She said the suggestion alarmed then-national security adviser John Bolton, who “immediately stiffened” and ended the meeting.
Separately, top White House expert on Ukraine Alexander Vindman testified that Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland characterized the request for investigations by Ukraine — or a “deliverable” — as coordinated with Mulvaney, according to the transcript of his testimony released today.

They all need to shut up, grow up and go to work for the people who elected them 😂😂😂😂😂 you are so full of crap!!! Waiting on CNN to report the Amb was colluding with Schiff people to get their story straight.
He's gonna make the perfect bitch for his cell mate. I would hope he was; if there had actually been a quid pro quo. No way.. I’m shocked. You misspelled bribery and extortion in you head line. This Is Fake News You spelled set up the phone call that a disgruntled Obama staffer lied about to try another attemp to take down Ameircas President...there I fixed it for you...by the way Epstein didnt kill himself Trump2020

QuidProQuo? You mean Blackmail of Ukraine by withholding funds approved by Congress by Trump & his yes men & they've admitted it! Criminals Trump, the ComplicitGOP, AGBarr & Putin have proven our laws/constitution/democracy no longer mean anything. Same names every time. I bet these same folks were part of the Russia hoax too. What a coincidence. Shocking I know. Talk about foreign interference.
Anyone still believe CNN (Zucker) bullshit? Anyone? Anyone? Did realDonaldTrump send him out of the country before his passport gets confiscated? WheresRudy I'm sick of media describing realDonaldTrump extortion & bribery attempt of the Ukraine as a quid pro quo. Stop sugar coating Trumps crimes. Extortion, bribery, blackmail, abuse of power, dereliction of duty, witness tampering r felonies Trump commits daily. ImpeachTheMF TRUMP!
What a stupid administration they don't know the constitution, they claim the Residents phone call and actions were not against the law that's why they decided to put it on a secret server. Gee.. everybody seems to have a faulty memory. What a shocker. Nothing to see here either. DeborahSimmon And he still has a job
DNCMediaColusion Umm we know he said it on live television GOPCrimeSyndicate⚠️ Mulvaney is in this up to his horn rimmed glasses, I still think he bears an amazing resemblance to Himmler. Imagine that shit So who is falling on the sword? Mulvaney or Guliani? Let's call it what it actually is - extortion.

Joe Biden and son did it all the time. Mulvaney aka band manager of the three amigos (Volker, Perry, Sondland) Mulvaney is going under the Trump bus. He is a traitor. Hey Mulvaney when you go to jail you will need a better game face than that It’s all I can think about when I hear that phrase. Quite apt, in fact!
Uh oh.. Mick!!! Better keeping his lips tight or how much longer he can do this? Willing to do to jail? There was No Quid Pro quo!! Stop making up stuff! FakeNews FakeNewsMedia FakeNewsCNN Quid pro Quo. Isn't that what happened with Ecuador after Moreno agreed to break international law and expel Julian Assange from the Embassy. Pressure from the US and then this.
Fake news as usual Call it what it is, bribery and extortion! Trump will have plenty of friends in prison Dems and news media want to give Quid Pro Joe Biden special immunity from investigation and prosecution because polls show he's the candidate with the best chance of beating the President. It's like they trying to innoculate him against legal scrutiny.
realDonaldTrump all the cards are falling Mick, I’ve got a bus tire track T-Shirt with your name on it. DM me. So who’s Trump gonna Theo under the bus first Mulvaney or Giuliani or both? What's the big deal? It's not like he'll get in trouble, unless someone opens the Ark of the Covenant... I hope we all understand that these are traitors to the US Constitution.
You spelled 'extortion attempt' wrong. Lies. Backs up. Reverses again. Swallows. Admits. Refuses to testify. Lies. See a pattern here folks? There was no quid pro quo unless you are talking about JoeBiden Because we have the proof of the quid pro Joe on video. Sadly he's got to go to Graham, Mulvaney, Gowdy... my state is full of losers. Tim Scott, not much better. Thankful for WhipClyburn and RepCunningham, men with actual brains.
Paula White: Trump's televangelist in the White HousePaula White, President Trump's longtime spiritual adviser, joined the White House staff last week. But she and the 'prosperity gospel' she preaches have been panned as heretical by many evangelical and orthodox Christians. SHE is what the Word of God speaks about false preachers,..AVOID,! Another proof that USA’s mental problem is no longer in control! Probably when she snaps fingers Trump will hit a button. However all can be fake news because that’s story of his presidency all along. Let’s hope so!
