DAILY NEWS: White House admits Trump used U.S. aid to Ukraine as leverage for investigation into Democrats

Acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney unexpectedly took to the White House podium to effectively acknowledge that there was a quid pro quo involved in the Ukraine scandal that sparked the House impeachment investigation.
