If Dems attack Trump (and his children/associates) for criminal financial dealings a Pandora's Box of shady financial dealings (for both parties) will be exposed for all to see.

I hope so.  Every other president has divested, no other president has ever used government aid pressure to support a political campaign.

 

nail trump on this - if the Pandoras box of smaller shady deals is open so be it.  But dont let outward in public blatant never before done dealings go.  This is opening a Pandoras box for any future president to just not give a fug about anything.

Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told reporters today that aid to Ukraine was in fact tied to President Trump’s wish for an investigation into the 2016 election.

When asked about the decision to withhold aid from Ukraine, Mulvaney told reporters that President Trump told him at the time, "This is a corrupt place. Everyone knows this is a corrupt place…Plus, I'm not sure that the other European countries are helping them out either.”

Mulvaney also added, “Did he also mention me in the past that the corruption related to the DNC server? Absolutely. No question about that."

When questioned on Mulvaney saying that the White House held up security money from Ukraine until the president got assurances, Mulvaney told reporters to “get over it” saying there are going to be political impacts on foreign policy.

"The corruption of the country, whether or not other countries participating in support of Ukraine, and whether or not cooperating in an ongoing investigation with the department of justice. That is completely legitimate, yes"

A reporter then questioned Mulvaney on his explanation saying it sounds like a quid-pro-quo to which Mulvaney said: “We do that all the time with foreign policy.”

Rep. Eric Swalwell, a Democrat on the Intelligence and Judiciary committees, reacted to acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney's remarks that aid to Ukraine was in fact tied to President Trump’s wish for an investigation into the 2016 election.

"He co-signed the President's confession, I guess," he told reporters as he left the Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility at Capitol Hill.

"We have a confession from the President," Swalwell said. "When a suspect confesses you can reduce the number of witnesses you need to call, still give them a fair process, but you know, kind of circling in on the timeline and who did what when."

Timeline for impeachment just moved up.

"It was not helpful," the source said.

The source questioned what Mulvaney was talking about when he tied the aid being held up for Ukraine to investigating the Democratic National Committee hack and the 2016 election. 

Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow said the President's "legal team was not involved in the acting chief of staff's press briefing." 

A source familiar with the reaction inside the President's legal team added: "I think people are a bit stunned."

A senior DOJ official, reacting to Mulvaney appearing to lump in the investigation by US Attorney John Durham into the origins of the Russia investigation with what Rudy Giuliani was doing in Ukraine, tells CNN, “If the White House was withholding aid in regards to the cooperation of any investigation at the Department of Justice, that is news to us.” 

Justice officials were confused and angry at the White House comments linking the Ukraine aid delay with Durham’s work.

Reporter: "So you're saying Trump committed the exact impeachable offense he is accused of?"

Mulvaney: "Yes."

Reporter: "So he violated the Constitution?"

Mulvaney: "So what?"

Idiot Trump supporters who identify as 'Patriots' and say Democrats 'aren't American': "Yeah! So what?"

Everything repeats. Always. Same tactics, actions....over and over 

Trump and company always fall back to the defense of if we openly acknowledge it....it therefore is okay. 

I mean take the G-7.  Mind blowing corruption.  His entire presidency is a Trump bailing out his last business that was remotely afloat.

Rick Perry’s resigning 

That was in the making way before he even said he was on January 1st.

The good part. Trump can’t spin this to make it sound like he decided it. Rick Perry caught him with his pants down.

Yknow the scary part of this, outside of the fact that Republicans might still allow them to get away with this, is if they weren't so goddamned stupid, they'd DEFINITELY get away with this. Our checks and balances ain't poo when one party is evil.

This option has been on the table since the dems became the majority in the House.

We know why they haven't exercised it.
