Thursday night on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin discussed a press conference held by acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney held earlier that day and how the mainstream media covered it.

During the press briefing at the White House, Mulvaney explained that foreign aid to the Ukraine was held up over the summer in order to see if the country would commit to cooperate with an ongoing Department of Justice investigation regarding potential corruption in the 2016 election. Several in the media said that the acting chief admitted to a “quid pro quo” with Ukrainian officials, which is central to Democrats’ and the media’s Trump impeachment narrative.

Mulvaney explained that conditioning aid money happens “all the time with foreign policy,” adding that funding was being withheld from Central American countries at the same time in order to force their cooperation on immigration policy.

“There is an investigation going on with the Department of Justice. We all know this. [Attorney General] Bill Barr announced it way back when,” Levin explained.

“President of the United States says ‘I want the Ukrainian government to cooperate,’ as he wants the Italian government, the Australian government, and other governments to cooperate. Why is this a scandal? Why is this a problem? It’s not.”

Levin concluded, “The problem is the media do not want Joe Biden investigated. The media do not want the DNC investigated, the Hillary Clinton campaign investigated, they do not want it. They don’t want it.”
