Mick Mulvaney defends President Trump’s actions in Ukraine outreach

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney was unapologetic about the temporary suspension of military aid to Ukraine; chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reports from Capitol Hill.

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said nothing wrong or incriminating during a widely criticized news conference, according to radio host Mark Levin.

The former South Carolina Republican congressman’s exchange with the White House press corps was just the latest example of the media defending Democrats in trying to push a Trump-Ukraine narrative, Levin claimed Thursday on “The Mark Levin Show” on Westwood One.

“Of course the media and the Democrats are seizing on something he said,” Levin said. “Every day, it’s something else to prove there was a quid pro quo. It’s so absurd.”

Levin then played clips of reporters grilling Mulvaney over President Trump and Ukraine.

Levin, who also hosts Fox News’ “Life, Liberty & Levin,” later said Mulvaney was trying to explain that Trump was simply asking Ukraine to investigate potential wrongdoing during the 2016 U.S. presidential election — and not probe any alleged wrongdoing by former Vice President Joe Biden or his son Hunter Biden.

“There’s an investigation going on, going back to 2016 and even before,” Levin said, “by a U.S. attorney and by the attorney general, looking into the early aspects of the phony Russia collusion issue and Ukraine — and that’s what [Mulvaney was] talking about — not Biden.”

“And, [Mulvaney] is saying to this reporter, who’s not really getting it, ‘The president can’t say to another country, we want you to cooperate with this investigation? It’s done all the time.’

“There is an investigation going on with the Department of Justice, we all know this — Bill Barr announced it,” Levin later added.

He said Trump would like the Ukrainian government as well as officials in Italy and Australia to cooperate with Attorney General Barr and Connecticut federal prosecutor John Durham, the man Barr appointed to investigate the origins of the Russia investigation.
