In a Sunday morning gaffe, White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney likely fueled Democrats’ impeachment case against President Donald Trump.

Mulvaney made the remarks on FOX News Sunday while being grilled by host Chris Wallace.

During a question about the White House’s now-defunct decision to hold the G7 conference at Trump’s Doral resort, Mulvaney revealed that President Donald Trump “still considers himself to be in the hospitality business.”

“He was getting hammered by Republicans,” Wallace explained. “So, why did he cave?”

“He was honestly surprised at the level of pushback,” Mulvaney said. “At the end of the day, he still considers himself to be in the hospitality business.”

Mulvaney’s admission may complicate Trump’s defense against court cases and potential articles of impeachment accusing him of violating the Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) switched committees just to appear and ask questions and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) humiliated himself, but aside from that, Maddow said she was surprised there were reasonable questions, and everyone remained calm.

Seth Meyers mocks Devin Nunes saying Dems wanted to find nude photos of Trump: ‘Literally no one wants that’

Published

on

"Late Night" host Seth Meyers ridiculed Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) for his absurd line of questioning that accused Democrats of the impeachment is the same as the Russia scandal.

Nunes said that Democrats want the world to forget about their efforts to obtain nude photos of Trump, something Meyers countered with actual sense.

"Hey man, I guarantee you no one wants nude pictures of Donald Trump," Meyers said. "I'm not crazy about clothed pictures of Donald Trump. Also, I have to believe that if there were nude pictures of Donald Trump, the first person to show them would be Donald Trump. He'd probably hold a press conference with a giant poster board."
