Mulvaney Coordinated Ukraine Quid Pro Quo, Ex-White House Staffer Reveals
Fiona Hill, a National Security Council staffer with knowledge of the phone call between Donald Trump and Ukraine, revealed on Friday that it was acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney who coordinated Trump’s extortion of Ukraine.
“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 into Joe Biden and Hunter Biden,” Hill said, CNN reports.
According to the report, then-National Security Adviser John Bolton was in the room while the plan was being coordinated. He was reported to be “immediately stiffened” and ended the meeting.
