Mulvaney acknowledges Ukraine aid was withheld to pressure Ukraine to manufacture dirt on Trump’s political rivals

Donald Trump’s top aide on Thursday acknowledged that the administration held up military funds to Ukraine over the president’s desire for a political probe, undermining past denials of any quid pro quo and blowing up weeks of White House messaging amid an escalating impeachment inquiry.

In a whirlwind 40-minute news conference, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told reporters the U.S. aid was withheld at least in part because of a request to have Ukraine investigate unfounded allegations that foreign countries assisted Democrats in the 2016 election.
