On Friday, Rooney told CNN that "whatever might have been gray and unclear before is certainly clear right now" with regard to the administration's alleged quid pro quo of military aid to Ukraine for an investigation into Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee. "But that's it - and that's why we held up the money". A plain reading of the transcript shows no obvious evidence of a quid pro quo.

Republican retirement announcements have stacked up since the Democrats took the House in the 2018 midterms. He called Mulvaney's acknowledgment about withholding Ukraine aid "troubling", saying it is "not a good thing" to do that in connection "with threatening foreign leaders".

He said he would not rule out potentially supporting the Democratic-led effort to impeach the president.

"What's he going to do to me?"

A day after telling reporters he would consider voting to impeach Donald Trump, the Florida Republican Francis Rooney told Fox News he had made a decision to retire from Congress.

AP Top 25: LSU jumps to No. 2; Ohio State at 4
Burrow completed 12 straight passes during one stretch against Florida, which ranks as the third-longest streak in school history. It was a big night in Death Valley last Saturday as the LSU Tigers beat the then #7 ranked Florida Gators by two touchdowns.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told reporters Thursday that he had not yet seen Mulvaney's comments.

"There's a lot of people around who are seriously concerned about being criticised by the president".

This week's hours of back-to-back closed-door hearings from diplomats and former top aides appeared to be providing investigators with a remarkably consistent account of the run-up and aftermath of Trump's call with Ukraine President Volodymy Zelenskiy. The Department of Justice is investigating the origins of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Mulvaney later claimed his remarks were misconstrued.

In the same Friday conversation, Rooney said: "Whether I run again is a totally different can of worms, OK?"

Rooney said he came to Congress to help get funding for projects in the Florida Everglades and to try to get an offshore drilling ban passed. For Pelosi's part, she said that she believed she was excusing herself from the room at the time of the photograph, calling out his reasoning for withdrawing troops from Syria for the hypocritical nonsense it was, and pointing out a disturbing connection to Trump's seeming love of Russian Federation. There is no quid pro quo.' The President repeated: "'no quid pro quo" multiple times.
