Acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney appeared to confirm that the White House was conducting a review of the call between the Ukrainian president and President Trump, which was flagged in an intelligence community whistleblower report.
“If you’re having the House do what they’re going to do, doesn’t it simply make sense for us to sort of try and find out what happened?” Mulvaney asked during a White House news briefing today.
Mulvaney also said there is not an impeachment “war room” at the White House.
However, Mulvaney added, “Yes, we’re having lawyers look at it. Yes, we’re having our PR people looking at it. If we … weren’t doing that, we’d be committing malpractice. But I don’t think there’s anything extraordinary that we’re doing.”
Mulvaney also said the review was not part of an attempt to uncover the whistleblower.
He later added that “no one here had any difficulty with the call. We do think the call is perfect.”
“No one raised any difficulty with me on the call at all,” he continued.
