The White House has confirmed that it retained a package of aid to Ukraine in part because it wanted it to investigate the alleged corruption of the Democrats in the 2016 elections, although shortly thereafter it went back and denied that statement. “Mention (Trump) corruption related to the (e-mail) server of the DNC (Democratic National Committee, party secretariat)? Absolutely. There is no doubt about it. And so we withheld the money “that was going to stop in Ukraine, said Mick Mulvaney, the chief of staff of President Donald Trump at a press conference. “The review of what happened in 2016 was certainly part of what worried him (Trump) in relation to corruption in that country (Ukraine) And that is absolutely appropriate, “he added. Mulvaney refers to the president’s suspicion that a DNC server hacked by Russian intelligence agents and allegedly contains emails from his rival in the 2016 elections, Hill ary Clinton, was in Ukraine, about which there is no evidence.
