Senator Mitch McConnell pushed back on President Donald Trump’s claim that the Senate Majority Leader described a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelinsky that lays at the center of the current impeachment inquiry unfolding in the nation’s capital.

During a Capitol Hill briefing, an unidentified reporter noted to McConnell that “the president has said that you told him that his phone call with Ukrainian president was ‘perfect and innocent.’” Then asked if Senator McConnell believes that President Trump has handled the situation perfectly.
