Trump, McConnell at odds on one point as testimony continues
Posted Oct 23, 2019 6:33 AM CDT
- Trump's story: But on Oct. 3, Trump said McConnell had "put out a statement that said that was the most innocent phone call he's read, and I spoke to him about it, too. He read my phone call with the president of Ukraine. Mitch McConnell—he said, 'That was the most innocent phone call that I've read.' I mean, give me a break."
- Who's lying? While McConnell refused to call Trump a liar on Tuesday—"You'll have to ask him," he said when asked if the president was fibbing—Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer came close. "When President Trump says something, I think peoples' initial reaction ... is skepticism," he said, adding, "I'll let the two of them figure that out for themselves."
- More inconsistencies: Some Democrats were calling Tuesday for Gordon Sondland, the US Ambassador to the European Union, to return to Capitol Hill to revise his Thursday testimony after another inconsistency surfaced. William Taylor testified that Sondland had told him "everything," including an aid package, depended on Ukraine launching investigations into 2016 election interference, Joe Biden, and the Ukrainian gas company that hired Biden's son.
