Was Mulvaney's admission to a quid pro quo a genius move?

Although Mulvaney walked the admission back only a few hours later, this could be the new impeachment counter-strategy of an embattled White House

It fits the “let Trump be Trump” strategy his boosters promote.  When pushed by the journalist, Mulvaney didn’t back down but double down. “And I have news for everybody,” he said. “Get over it. There is going to be political influence in foreign policy.”

This puts Trump back on the offensive, rather than the defensive, plays to Trump as the taboo-breaker, and speaks to his bold and risky “masculine” leadership style.

And it completely changes the optics of the impeachment process in the House. When the House committee offers evidence for the quid pro quo deal,   Republicans and right wing media will respond much more blasé. “We already knew that.” It raises the bar for the committee to come up with something “new” and “shocking”.

It's only a genius move in 1984 terms, where the State can say as fact what they were vigorously denying only moments ago. If we have already reached that state of being mind controlled we are in serious trouble.
