'President Trump told his acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, to hold back almost $400 million in military aid for Ukraine...' Mulvaney Withheld Funds to Ukraine without Knowledge of NSC, Pentagon or State. (WaPo)

More likely, if Mulvaney’s approval was necessary to move digital items like phone call memos to the so-called secret server, he’ll be in much bigger trouble than not having a response strategy for the release of the Ukraine summary of 25 July. Cover-ups are always hard to manage once a portion of inculpatory information gets out. Mick is no John Kelly. CNN Politics ✔ @CNNPolitics Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney is on shaky ground in wake of whistleblower fallout, sources say https://cnn.it/2lW7vwT View image on Twitter 188 5:05 PM - Sep 28, 2019 Twitter Ads info and privacy 131 people are talking about this The sources say the President is not upset with Mulvaney for the White House releasing the summary of his July 25 call with Ukraine's leader or the whistleblower complaint because he had been convinced that it was necessary. What Trump and other aides are frustrated with, according to the sources, is that Mulvaney did not have a strategy for defending and explaining the contents of those documents as soon as they were publicly released. One of the sources says it's not just the President, but also widespread frustration in the White House about the lack of a response plan to deal with the fallout after the release of the whistleblower complaint ignited more controversy surrounding the President. The sources say Mulvaney is taking the heat for that. www.cnn.com/...
