The 2012 GOP presidential nominee is one of the few Republican senators to admit they are open to voting to remove Trump from office.
Francis Rooney, who broke with many of his Republican colleagues when he said he wouldn't rule out supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump, announced he will not seek reelection next year. Mitt Romney, saying they "don't have people like that" on their side. But Trump also called out Republicans for not sticking together, pointing a finger at Utah Sen.
But after weeks in which the president argued that he had done nothing wrong, Mulvaney's remarks undermined the core arguments that Trump and his advisers have made against the effort to oust him from office in a House of Representatives impeachment inquiry.
"It was shocking, in my opinion.and a mistake", he said on "Axios on HBO". "Of course they want to impeach me". Trump had selected the Doral resort near Miami, which is a Trump Organization property.
Even before Democrats launched the impeachment inquiry, Mulvaney was on thin ice, with diminished status in the White House.
Trump, a wealthy real estate developer, also said serving as president has personally cost him $2 billion to $5 billion dollars.
Duffey had been scheduled to testify behind closed doors on Wednesday as Democrats scrutinize Trump's decision to withhold $391 million in security aid to Ukraine before he asked its president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
But frustration has swelled over some of his public statements that put the White House and its Republican allies in a hard position in recent days.

Russian Federation signals its new power in Syria; Pence seeking cease-fire from Turkey
At least 190,000 people have fled their homes in northern Syria , according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM). Earlier Wednesday, Erdogan said that the only option for Kurdish militants in Syria was to give up the battle and retreat.
However, House Democrats reportedly have not made a final decision yet. US intelligence agencies and a special counsel have concluded that Russian Federation used a campaign of hacking and propaganda to boost Trump's candidacy.
At the center of the probe, which initially stemmed from a whistleblower's complaint, is a July 25 call in which Trump pressed Zelenskiy for his cooperation.
Democrats say the closed-door depositions are necessary so witnesses don't have the advantage of hearing one another's testimony.
Democrats mocked Trump. "It is literally in the Constitution", Democratic congressman Eric Swalwell said on Twitter.
Before making his requests to Zelenskiy, Trump had withheld the congressionally approved USA security aid to Ukraine to help Kiev deal with Russia-backed separatists in the eastern part of the country. Zelensky agreed to Trump's requests.
