Jim Acosta: ‘Baseless Conspiracy Theory’ that DNC Worked with Ukraine in 2016

‘— This unproven, baseless conspiracy theory that the Democratic Party was somehow behind this plot to deny Donald Trump from becoming president in 2016’

ACOSTA: "Brianna, this has become a catch-us-if-you-can administration. What you heard from Mick Mulvaney, the acting Chief of Staff, a few moments ago was pretty mind-blowing. What he said to this room full of reporters is that it is legal, it is appropriate for the White House to withhold foreign aid from a country unless they investigate the opposing political party in this country. Mick Mulvaney denied after we tried to follow up with him that holding up — or tried to deny that investigating Joe Biden was at the heart of this, but he did acknowledge that, yes, part of the deal, in order for Ukraine to get this money that was being held up, was to investigate what had happened in 2016, this unproven, baseless conspiracy theory that the Democratic Party was somehow behind this plot to deny Donald Trump from becoming president in 2016."
