Slow people are not the subject of this blog Steve so, you can STOP that BULL💩 RIGHT NOW.

What don't YOU understand about what Mick Mulvaney acting White House chief of staff had to say in his "BOMBSHELL: acknowledgment about the quid pro quo . He told The American people that monies was held up and that move happens all the time. GET OVER IT.

Now on the other hand, Trump has been telling the people that there was no quid pro quo, Mick Mulvaney directly contradicted what Trump has been telling you and The American people , do you understand that Steve?

QUESTION TO MULVANEY: Can you clarify - and I've been trying to get an answer to this: Was the President serious when he said that he would also like to see China investigate the Bidens? And you were directly involved in the decision to withhold funding from Ukraine. Can you explain to us now definitively why? Why was funding withheld?

MULVANEY REPLY:

Sure. I'll - let's deal with the second one first, which is - look, it should come as no surprise to anybody - the last time I was up here - I haven't done this since I was Chief of Staff, right? The last time I was up here, some of you folks remember, it was for the budget briefings, right? And one of the questions y'all always asked me about the budget is, "What are you all doing to the foreign aid budget?" Because we absolutely gutted it, right? President Trump is not a big fan of foreign aid. Never has been; still isn't. Doesn't like spending money overseas, especially when it's poorly spent. And that is exactly what drove this decision. I've been in the office a couple times with him, talking about this. And he said, "Look, Mick, this is a corrupt place." Everybody knows it's a corrupt place. By the way, put this in context: This is on the heels of what happened in Puerto Rico, when we took a lot of heat for not wanting to give a bunch of aid to Puerto Rico because we thought that place was corrupt. And, by the way, it turns out we were right. All right? So put that as your context. He's like, "Look, this is a corrupt place. I don't want to send them a bunch of money and have them waste it, have them spend it, have them use it to line their own pockets. Plus, I'm not sure that the other European countries are helping them out either. "So we actually looked at that, during that time, before - when we cut the money off, before the money actually flowed, because the money flowed by the end of the fiscal year - we actually did an analysis of what other countries were doing in terms of supporting Ukraine. And what we found out was that - and I can't remember if it's zero or near zero dollars from any European countries for lethal aid. And you've heard the President say this: that we give them tanks and other countries give them pillows. That's absolutely right, that the - as vocal as the Europeans are about supporting Ukraine, they are really, really stingy when it comes to lethal aid. And they weren't helping Ukraine, and then still to this day are not. And the President did not like that. I know it's a long answer to your question, but I'm still going.So that was - those were the driving factors. Did he also mention to me in pass the corruption related to the DNC server? Absolutely. No question about that. But that's it. And that's why we held up the money. Now, there was a report -

According to the acting White House chief of staff, TRUMP has been lying to you Steve, how do you feel about that?

I like to highlight this QUESTION : "Did he also mention to me in pass the corruption related to the DNC server?"

Absolutely. No question about that. But that's it. And that's why we held up the money. "ANDTHAT'S WHY WE HELD UP THE MONEY."

Steve, what part of this statement by Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, you don't understand?

I' am sure you that are not the slow minded people that you are talking about in your opening reply.

WOW!!!!


Sunday, October 20th 2019 at 5:04PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Didn't you watch the press conference Ron? Mulvaney made clear, NO QUID PRO QUO.

Sunday, October 20th 2019 at 6:34PM
Steve Williams
Did you hear Ron, that AG Barr has possession of 2 of Joseph Mifsud's Blackberries? We will soon learn the role of Ukraine and the hack of the DNC server, and John Brennan, in the origin of the 2016 Russia Hoax.

Monday, October 21st 2019 at 12:46AM

WOW!!!!

Monday, October 21st 2019 at 12:47AM

Hey Steve, did acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said this:

“[Did] he also mention to me, in the past, that the corruption related to the DNC server?” Mulvaney said. “Absolutely, no question about that. But that’s it. And that’s why we held up the money. ... The look back to what happened in 2016 certainly was part of the thing that he was worried about in corruption with that nation. And that is absolutely appropriate.”

also did Mulvaney said this:

“We do that all the time with foreign policy,” he said when it was pointed out that he appeared to be describing a quid pro quo. He added: "I have news for everybody: Get over it. There’s going to be political influence in foreign policy.”

You did heard and saw him say these things, now didn't you?


Monday, October 21st 2019 at 8:26AM
Deacon Ron Gray
He said those things and much much more Ron. One thing he didn't say though was "quid pro quo."

Monday, October 21st 2019 at 10:39AM
Steve Williams
Ron, do you disagree, "There’s going to be political influence in foreign policy?"

Monday, October 21st 2019 at 10:41AM
Steve Williams
Steve since you have acknowledged that Mick said those things, let us review:

“[Did] he also mention to me, in the past, that the corruption related to the DNC server?” Mulvaney said. “Absolutely, no question about that. But that’s it. And that’s why we held up the money. ... The look back to what happened in 2016 certainly was part of the thing that he was worried about in corruption with that nation. And that is absolutely appropriate.”

Did you understand why did trump administration held up the money that was already appropriated by Congress?



Monday, October 21st 2019 at 11:02AM
Deacon Ron Gray
What do you mean by: “There’s going to be political influence in foreign policy?"

Monday, October 21st 2019 at 11:05AM
Deacon Ron Gray
Mick Mulvaney was very clear why the money was held up Ron. It was (1) to make sure that Ukraine was serious about ending corruption and (2) to determine if European countries were paying their fair share of aid to Ukraine.

Monday, October 21st 2019 at 11:32AM
Steve Williams
To your second question Ron, just understand the words.

politics (n.)
1520s, "science of government," from politic (adj.), modeled on Aristotle's ta politika "affairs of state," the name of his book on governing and governments, which was in English mid-15c. as "Polettiques." Also see -ics.

policy (n.1)
"way of management," late 14c., policie, "study or practice of government; good government;" from Old French policie (14c.) "political organization, civil administration," from Late Latin politia "the state, civil administration," from Greek politeia "state, administration, government, citizenship," from polites "citizen," from polis "city, state" (see polis). Meaning "plan of action, way of management" first recorded c. 1400.

3. get dirt on Biden

What questions are you answering too, Steve? Put them together for me.


Monday, October 21st 2019 at 12:12PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Nowhere did Mulvaney say anything about getting dirt on Biden.

Monday, October 21st 2019 at 5:12PM
Steve Williams
This is what was said: “Three issues for that,” he said. “The corruption in the country, whether or not other countries were participating in the support of the Ukraine, and whether or not they were cooperating in an ongoing investigation with our Department of Justice."

Now this thirds reason, cooperating in an ongoing investigation with our Department of Justice is where The Trump administration is looking for something they can use on Biden.

I' am sure you that are not the slow minded people that you are talking about in your opening reply.



Monday, October 21st 2019 at 7:15PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Ron, the ongoing investigation into 2016 interference is NOT "digging up dirt on Biden."

Monday, October 21st 2019 at 8:08PM
Steve Williams
Ron, "And that's why we held up the money" means because (1) we needed to make sure Ukraine (unlike you) is fighting corruption and (2) we needed to make sure European countries were paying their share of aid to Ukraine.

By the way Steve, did you see this mind blowing, breaking news.

President Donald Trump admitted on Monday morning that he told Ukraine’s president that the U.S. would withhold $250 million in military aid for Ukraine because of “corruption”—an apparent reference to efforts to dig up dirt on the role Joe Biden and his son Hunter are alleged to have played in Ukraine several years back.

Trump Admits Asking Ukraine to Investigate Biden’s Son https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-admits-asking-ukraine-to-investigate-bidens-son

Take a look at what the article is saying, pay attention.



According to the acting White House chief of staff, TRUMP has been lying to you Steve, how do you feel about that?

Also this breaking news about Trump holding $250 million in military aid for Ukraine because of “corruption”—an apparent reference to efforts to dig up dirt on the role Joe Biden and his son Hunter are alleged to have played in Ukraine several years back.

This walk back is not working for you or Trump's acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. Like I been telling you all along, YOU CAN'T PROVE A LIE, STEVE!


Monday, October 21st 2019 at 11:25PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Ron, we've known for a long time that Trump talked to Zelensky about investigating Joe and Hunter Biden and the new Ukraine General Prosecutor has confirmed the investigation has been reopened. And Mulvaney said nothing to me about Trump lying.

Tuesday, October 22nd 2019 at 12:10AM
Steve Williams
Don't you understand that asking a foreign government for help in digging up dirt on your political rival is against Constitutional Law?


Tuesday, October 22nd 2019 at 1:05AM
Deacon Ron Gray
What "dirt" is being dug up Ron? If Biden is dirty he'll hopefully be prosecuted. Otherwise he has nothing to worry about, now does he.


Tuesday, October 22nd 2019 at 9:58AM
Steve Williams
Now keep in mind Steve that this information or dirt on The Bidens, is coming from a country who is under attack by the Russians. So that they can octane tank busters Missiles from the United States of America, that even that the Congress allocated for that purpose Trump held up , that was crazy.

You Can use that same logic on The house of representative impeachment investigation of Trump.

If Trump is right the information found will prove it, I am sure of it!

Thanks Steve for sharing this bit of wisdom.
Tuesday, October 22nd 2019 at 11:16AM
Deacon Ron Gray
You're welcome Ron, but I still don't get why Biden has dirt on himself that can be dug up?

Tuesday, October 22nd 2019 at 11:31AM
Steve Williams
It’s called the constitution of the United States of America under the emoluments clause. Are you finding It hard for you to understand or follow the LAW of The Land now?


Tuesday, October 22nd 2019 at 11:52AM
Deacon Ron Gray
What are you talking about emoluments Ron? Did Biden accept an emolument from Ukraine? That's interesting. I hadn't thought of it that way but you are probably right.

Tuesday, October 22nd 2019 at 12:18PM
Steve Williams
No Steve, If there is any dirt on The Biden's Ukraine can't find it to help Trump. It will have to be "DONE IN THE U.S.A."

Don't you understand that asking a foreign government for help in digging up dirt on your political rival is against Constitutional Law?


That is what I am talking about It’s called the constitution of the United States of America under the emoluments clause. Are you finding It hard for you to understand or follow the LAW of The Land now?


Tuesday, October 22nd 2019 at 12:51PM
Deacon Ron Gray
"Don't you understand that asking a foreign government for help in digging up dirt on your political rival is against Constitutional Law?"

It's not against the Constitution Ron, it's against U.S. Code.
