'News to us': DOJ distances itself from Mulvaney claim that Ukraine aid was tied to investigation

The Justice Department distanced itself from acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney’s claim Thursday that U.S. military aid was tied to Ukraine agreeing to cooperate in an investigation into the 2016 presidential election.

“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,” a DOJ official told the Washington Examiner.

Mulvaney confirmed Thursday hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. military aid for Ukraine “was held up temporarily.” Mulvaney claimed that the aid was withheld for three “completely legitimate” reasons: “the corruption in the country, whether other countries were participating in support of the Ukraine, and whether or not they were cooperating in an ongoing investigation with our Department of Justice.”

But the DOJ distanced itself from Mulvaney’s claims, saying it had never been told and did not participate in this pressure effort.

Mulvaney walks back comments tying Ukraine aid to 2016 probe
By Morgan Chalfant - 10/17/19 06:05 PM EDT

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said Thursday that the flow of security assistance to Ukraine was not conditioned on Kiev investigating a conspiracy related to 2016 election interference, walking back statements he made earlier in the day.

Mulvaney issued a statement Thursday afternoon accusing the media of “misconstruing” his earlier remarks to the press at the White House “to advance a biased and political witch hunt against President Trump.”


“Let me be clear, there was absolutely no quid pro quo between Ukrainian military aid and any investigation into the 2016 election,” Mulvaney said. “The president never told me to withhold any money until the Ukrainians did anything related to the server.”

@mystery-ak

I heard him, too.  Mulvaney is a politically dead man walking.  Counting 3-2-1 and he will be gone.

   That would Shirley break a record, 3 Chiefs of Staff in less than 3 years.
No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.
