Trump's Chief of Staff was just implicated by a former top National Security official: report
Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney was just implicated after former National Security Official Fiona Hill gave nine grueling hours of testimony in front of Congress, the Wall Street Journal is reporting.
“In her testimony, she detailed a July 10 meeting she attended with senior Ukrainian officials, then-National Security Adviser John Bolton, and other U.S. officials in which the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, raised the issue of the investigations, the people said.”
Former National Security Advisor John Bolton even told an aide to alert White House lawyers he was so alarmed, the New York Times followed up with on the story.
“I am not part of whatever drug deal Rudy and Mulvaney are cooking up,” Mr. Bolton, told Ms. Hill to tell White House lawyers, according to the testimony.
“Giuliani’s a hand grenade who’s going to blow everybody up,” Ms. Hill quoted Mr. Bolton as saying further.
“People in the room took the comments to refer to an investigation that could implicate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, the people said. Both Ms. Hill and Mr. Bolton left the meeting with concerns about what had transpired, and Ms. Hill said Mr. Bolton instructed her to talk to NSC lawyer John Eisenberg,” the newspaper’s sources said.
“Sondland also appeared to be coordinating his efforts with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, Ms. Hill testified, the people said. The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment,” The Journal noted.
More information is still being found out, as well: Michael McKinley, a top aide to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, will also testify after resigning from his position last week.
