Worst. Gaslighting. Ever.
#MULVANEY: That’s what people are saying I said but I didn’t say it.
(🦊 rolls tape)
WALLACE: Anyone listening to you in that briefing could come to only one conclusion—there was a quid pro quo. YOU TOTALLY SAID THAT. #UkraineGate
🤥Sunday Mulvaney: 2 reasons aid to Ukraine was held: 1/ corruption, 2/ other aid. Trump mentioned DNC server—in passing & not connected to aid.
😤Thurs Get-over-it Mulvaney: 3 reasons: those 2 + investigation of Dems.

He said something else interesting about the Zelensky call…
Mulvaney tried gaslighting away #3 reason—server investigation/quid pro quo—for blocking aid.
He added: Once we were satisfied Ukraine was doing better w corruption—we got that info from conversation w/ Zelensky—money flowed.
🧐Corruption was never mentioned in transcript—#3 was.
Is some corruption convo redacted from JULY Ukraine transcript? Or is Mulvaney lying that Zelensky call gave more info to Trump? All we see is Z acquiescing to T pushing 2 “reciprocal” investigations—Server+Biden.
Timing suggests lie: Aid didn’t flow til whistleblower blows—SEPT.
So Mulvaney gaslighted #3 admitted reason for holding Ukraine aid—Dems investigations. The remaining 2 reasons fail too.
#1 No “Corruption” mentioned in transcript call.
#2 “The money flowed after OMB researched other countries’ aid”
🧐THAT took months—Til the whistleblower blew.
All Mulvaney’s reasons—the pretexts & the truth—are damning. The facts remain: Trump solicited foreign help for personal political gain. He blocked aid, hurt Ukraine, helped Russia. These are but needn’t be linked for abuse of power. When all else fails tho, gaslighting ramps up.
FWIW I warned if Trump released the Ukraine call transcript, a torrent of gaslighting would follow. It has.

Here's a thread of how this propaganda playbook works when done by good liars. Putin's used it to stay in power longer than any leader of Russia.
#Impeachment #UkraineGate
💯Pre-election collusion was always about post-election collusion. Lots of it. Quid pro quo's from sanctions to weakening NATO, all aimed to prop Putin’s kleptocracy in Russia, taint & corrupt America and the West. Trump's destroying the US in record time—to the Kremlin's delight
