On Thursday, White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney attempted to argue he never claimed there was a quid pro quo in President Donald Trump's diplomacy with Ukraine:


Just hours before, Mulvaney openly admitted that the White House made foreign aid conditional on helping Trump investigate his political opponents — stunning the president's legal team and drawing criticism even from Republicans like Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). His new denial directly contradicts what he said on camera.
