‘Textbook Definition Of An Impeachable Offense’: Obama Attorney Reveals How Mulvaney Threw Trump Under The Bus
Donald Trump’s chief of staff Mick Mulvaney decided to lash out at reporters on Thursday while unknowingly throwing the president under the bus. During a press conference, Mulvaney admitted that there was actually a quid pro quo discussed in the July 25 phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president.
“The look back to what happened in 2016, certainly, was part of the things that he was worried about in corruption with that nation, and that is absolutely appropriate,” Mulvaney told ABC’s Jonathan Karl. “We do it all the time with foreign policy.”
Former acting U.S. Solicitor General and Supreme Court litigator Neal Katyal took to Twitter shortly after Mulvaney’s comments and noted that he outright admitted that Trump committed an impeachable offense.
“This is the textbook definition of an impeachable offense, and the White House Chief of Staff has just admitted it,” Katyal tweeted.
