Trump Drags McConnell Into His Ukraine Mess: ‘He Assured Me The Call Was Perfect’

President Donald Trump said on Thursday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell assured him that the phone call to the Ukraine president that is the center of an impeachment inquiry was “perfect” and that he sees no problem with it.

Trump told reporters that he’s spoken with McConnell and that the Kentucky Republican considers Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky “the most innocent phone call” that he’s read.

The call has prompted the inquiry into whether Trump pressured a foreign leader to investigate a political rival. House committee members were meeting privately Thursday in a lengthy session to question former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, who resigned his post last week.

Trump went on to accuse House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, of twisting his words in the call with Zelensky.

“Anybody that reads it says the same thing,” Trump said. “And the only people that don’t understand it is when they look at the false, fabricated, fraudulent statement made by Shifty Schiff.”

McConnell’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
