The acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney admitted on Thursday that President Donald Trump withheld foreign aid in order to get Ukraine’s help in the U.S. election.
“We do that all the time with foreign policy,” Mulvaney responded when ABC News reporter Jon Karl pointed out that withholding funding from Ukraine “unless the investigation into the Democrats’ server happens” is a “quid pro quo.”
“Get over it,” he added later. “There’s going to be political influence in foreign policy. ... That is going to happen. Elections have consequences.”

Mulvaney also revealed Thursday that the Trump administration was withholding aid from Ukraine to coerce the country into investigating the Democratic National Committee’s server and corruption in the 2016 election ― not Trump’s political rival former Vice President Joe Biden.
