Trump seizes on unsubstantiated China claims against Biden

110 Comments
By STEPHEN BRAUN

Once again, President Donald Trump is seizing on unsubstantiated claims promoted by political allies as he seeks a foreign government’s help finding dirt on Democratic political rival Joe Biden. This time it’s China.

In remarks to reporters outside the White House Thursday, Trump called on China to investigate Biden and his son Hunter, though he said he has not yet appealed to China’s president to do so. The comments echo a similar “favor” he asked of Ukraine’s leader that has led to a House impeachment investigation.

Trump told reporters that Hunter Biden earned $1.5 billion from a “sweetheart” business deal in China. But while Hunter Biden had business ties to Chinese companies, there’s no evidence the claim is true.

Conservative researcher Peter Schweizer, who advanced corruption claims against Hillary Clinton ahead of the 2016 presidential race, was the first to make claims about a $1.5 billion-dollar business deal in China. Schweizer said the deal with a subsidiary of the Bank of China came after Hunter Biden accompanied his father on a diplomatic flight to Beijing in December 2013, while the senior Biden was vice president.

Hunter Biden at the time was a co-founder of an investment firm, Rosemont Seneca. Less than two weeks after the China trip, he and other investors launched a separate investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST.

Bohai Harvest was also among a consortium of investors that, in 2016, announced plans to raise $950 million to invest in an Australian subsidiary of a Chinese coal mining firm, according to Securities and Exchange Commission records. Those records and the mining firm’s annual report do not show whether the investments were ultimately carried out.

No evidence has emerged of any illegal dealings by Hunter Biden or his father in Bohai Harvest’s business interests in China.

There is also no evidence that Hunter Biden solely pocketed $1.5 billion from the China investment cited by Schweizer. The figure appears to have come from a deal announced in 2014 in which Bohai Harvest and other foreign and Chinese private equity firms aimed to raise $1.5 billion to invest outside of China.

But that deal ultimately raised less than a third of that amount, according to George Mesires, a lawyer for Hunter Biden. And Hunter Biden was an unpaid director of Bohai Harvest at the time, Mesires said on the Politifact website.

The younger Biden made no earnings from his Bohai Harvest board role until October 2017, nine months after his father left the White House, Mesires said. He then acquired a 10% interest in Bohai Harvest. NBC News said that stake would be worth about $4.2 million.

Last August, Senate Finance Chairman Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, asked Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to investigate Hunter Biden’s business activities in China. Treasury has said it’s reviewing Grassley’s request.

Trump looking for dirt on his opponents is like a whiny kid who, when caught with his hand in the cookie jar, asks "Well, where's that other jar with my more favorite ones?", in a futile attempt to distract attention from the spanking that he knows is coming his way.

Watching how obsessive Trump is about getting dirt on Biden, does anyone honestly now believe he knew nothing about the efforts to collect dirt on Clinton in 2016 ?

Wake up Republicans. If you don't take care of Trump, he's going to take care of you.

Did Biden commit anything illegal?

If yes, prosecute him.

Nobody is saying otherwise.

Trump is trying to make as much as possible noise to keep the media busy and feed talking points to his flock.

Childish tactic.

Get off the golf cart and get presidential for a change...

Trump‘s only crime is his asking for justice to be served and for system of Washington backhanded deals in foreign countries to end.

Voters are sick of the games and corruption in Washington and will make their voices heard again on the second Tuesday in November in 2020.

Count on it.

Now he's begging China for help? He must be pretty concerned about losing.

...with the aid of foreign powers on a rival candidate so that he can get re-elected. I don't suppose there's much point in trying to explain anything further.

Dosen't matter who else did what...(if criminal activity can be proven, good, and bring them to justice).

Nothing should distract anyone from the fact that Trump has been acting illegally, and nothing should prevent him from impeachment.

@burningbushVoters are sick of the games and corruption in Washington

I agree. With the exception of Trump backers, US voters are also sick of foreign nations meddling in US affairs and the troll armies pushing messages intended to fuhrer undermine the remaining bits of 'western' democracies.

Trump‘s only crime

Only? The list is too long. But that's to be expected when a corrupt businessman who's spent his life dealing with domestic and 'foreign' thugs was elected. With help from global thugs.

If Biden and son committed any crimes I'm sure Barr and Giuliani will go after them. Unless both Trump goons are also found to have committed crimes. What a mess Trump's made. Putin must be smiling.

Trump, hoist with his own petard.

President Trump continues to play our media like a Stradivarius. If he only held press conferences saying reporters should do their jobs and look into shady dealings Daddy Biden orchestrated to help enrich his son with China while he was Obama's VP, the DMIC would never air the pressers. To them, if they don't report it, it didn't happen.

Instead, he interjects the accusations during general gaggles on his way to an event. The MSM will scoff at what he says, but, it still gets airtime/ink nonetheless. This AP article is a perfect example of that.

The President continues to circumvent the anti-Trump media machine and they are too stupid to even realize it.

I'm sure all of Ivanka's foreign business dealings are above the board. If they aren't, I'm sure it's just the liberal media and Shifty Schiff have it out for Trump and the do nothing Democrats will do anything to win the next election. SOMEBODY PLEASE SAVE TRUMP! UKRAINE? CHINA?

SAD!

Man, I would love to see the talking heads at CNN if they found out that Ivanka got a 50,000 Dollar/month job with a Ukrainian oil company, and Donny gave a 6 hour ultimatum to fire the prosecutor looking into this.

Nothing to see here, just unsubstantiated rumours, eh?

-13 ( +2 / -15 )

Donny gave a 6 hour ultimatum to fire the prosecutor looking into this.

Sigh... this is about the tenth time this particular lie has been repeated.

The fact is, the prosecutor in question was fired because he WASN'T looking into corruption. Not only did Biden call for his firing as per US policy at the time, but numerous other groups including the IMF and more were saying the prosecutor needed to be fired because he WASN'T cracking down on corruption.

In fact, the investigation into the gas company in question was actually DORMANT/DROPPED at the time of Biden calling for the prosector's firing.

So, if anything, Biden calling for the prosecutor's firing would have been detrimental to any investigation into the company.

12 ( +12 / -0 )

Just look at the Trumpers here grab for the life lines - their sainted hero has admitted to abuse of authority in writing with a quid-pro-quo request to the Ukraine President - then engages in an elementary school level cover-up that will bring down not only him, but Pence, Barr, Pompeo, Giuliani, and others.

First its the useless attempt with Ukraine, now China, next Trump will be saying Biden helped Ted Cruz' father in the JFK assassination....

Why? Biden is beating him by double-digits in a Fox News poll - that made Donnie wet his pants - so he got Crazy Rudy to get on a plane and try to frame Biden's son...

Really, come on Trumpers, you really want a foreign government to help a candidate in a US election? So that foreign government now has leverage over a US President?

What if Xi said, I'll help you, but you have to cancel that aid package to Taiwan, or quit those pesky US Navy patrols in the South China Sea, or no longer support the democracy protests in Hong Kong.

Get real - asking a foreign government to meddle in our election is traitorous...

And your President is the biggest traitor to have ever set foot in the Oval Office...

So basically, we should just ignore how a man who has zero experience in the gas industry makes a salary of over $50,000 a month and who’s father on tape admitting and bragging he would block $1 billion to the Ukrainians if they don’t fire the prosecutor investigating his son? Wow! Just imagine for a second and let’s substitute the name Hunter for DTJ or Eric Trump you think the Democrats would still cry foul? You think the media would would say, nothing here to see? Lol

Wake up Republicans. If you don't take care of Trump, he's going to take care of you

Yes, by giving them back the House.

-16 ( +2 / -18 )

he would block $1 billion to the Ukrainians if they don’t fire the prosecutor investigating his son?

Again, he wasn't investigating Biden's son... nor the company... the case was already dropped/dormant before the firing.

The prosecutor was fired for NOT investigating corruption.

Given that's all a big fairy tale, wonder if we need to ignore the fact that a President hires his daughter as a paid White House Adviser when the only experience she has is selling handbags at Macy's? And if that daughter then gets 16 trademarks approved in China while her father is negotiating a trade deal? Or hires his son-in-law when his father was convicted of illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion, and witness tampering. Or if Trump's son's say "We get all the money we need from Russia", while the father says "I have zero business with Russia"...

Trump request Ukraine and China to give him facts

Its illegal to seek interference from foreign powers in US elections. The Trumpets have been so brainwashed they forget we live in a democracy.

as Biden was involved it appears in allot of shady activities that the MSM has ignored.

Nobody except the Trumplets think that, so there is no investigation, other than by Donny and his minions a private capacity.

Myself and other Americans need to know,

Americans need to know whether their President is using the country's resources for person gain, which is illegal.

They are not capable or equipped with the mental tenacity and stamina that Trump has.

Thank you for the humour, I fell off my chair laughing.

Yes, Dems are the very last people on earth to preach about democracy.

Nobody except the Trumplets think that, so there is no investigation, other than by Donny and his minions a private capacity.

Well, it doesn’t matter what the haters think, Barr is investigating and we will find out soon enough, doesn’t matter what the media says or claims or any of the Trump haters claim or want to believe.

I never remember any of the Trump allegations being marked as unsubstantiated the day they were announced. They weren’t even marked that after they were found to be totally untrue.

We get a fact followed by an excuse in every liberal media article.

Its better you stop at Barr, the most corrupt and compromised AG ever. If anyone needs investigation its Barr, his lying under oath, the falsehoods he spreads. Barr is going to prison, soon.

No one put a gun to his head and forced him, he willingly did so. There’s your collaboration, at least an attempt to with a foreign government.

Dont you think Putin openly helping Donny is more concerning

Mueller couldn’t prove it, 19 angry Hillary Democrat donor lawyers couldn’t, 40 Trump hating FBI agents couldn’t, 1.500 subpoenas couldn't over 1.600 witnesses couldn’t, but CNN, msnbc and JT readers can? Gee, silly me. Lol

Its better you stop at Barr, the most corrupt and compromised AG ever. If anyone needs investigation its Barr, his lying under oath, the falsehoods he spreads. Barr is going to prison, soon.

Uh-huh..Barr schooled half of these Democrats that went to law school, the man has impeccable credentials of any lawyer out there which is why Dems were absolutely horrified when he joined the Trump team, so what do they do or try to do, tarnish the reputation of their old teacher, tried to frame and trap him at the last hearing, the guy literally wrote the book on cross examination and these Democrats think they can rattle him, veer him off course, ruin his reputation that he’ll stop? That won’t wont happen and that’s why the Dems are pulling no stops because they know the reaper is coming.

Americans need to know how corrupt and compromised their President is,

So far, none of the evidence shows it. The Democrats know it, that’s why the President keeps taunting them.

whether he has bartered national intelligence for personal gain, and the band of criminals in the WH who helped him do it.

It’s becoming more evidently clear that the Democrats as corrupt as they are really overstepped their legal authorities and it’s already starting to backfire on them as seen that Trump has been raising an obscene amount of money just in the few days this hoax started to unload. $15 million in less than 48 hours, again, not a good sign for Democrats, but they want to slit their own throats, oh, well....

So this is how it looks like the election will play out for Trump.

His reelection team will be himself, Barr, Pompeo, Pence, Giuliani, a disgraced Ukrainian prosecutor, and any country willing to lend support either above board or below board. Pompeo, Pence, and Barr will work at the direction of Trump within the US government under false pretenses of investigating corruption, Giuliani will be there for channels outside of the government and outside of prying eyes claiming to be just a personal lawyer who can't discuss his client.

The GOP will have two purposes. One will be to normalize Trump's actions, the other will be to distract. Some will go as far as willfully spreading disinformation in hopes their party can keep power as we've already seen. Others will give a quiet half-objection but will make it clear they aren't going to stop anything. So they'll either help Trump or stand on the sidelines.

The right wing media will work to create an alternate reality for Trump, the GOP, and his base to live in. That will create two realities, one where the Democrats work within the real world justice system to secure any convictions, and one where the GOP will create a media world where the proven liar Donald Trump is either the victim or the hero. When their media investigations yield no indictments, Deep State will be blamed.

Trump's base will support him even if they think he's committing treason. Some will do it because they are racist, others will do it because they hate the US and want to see Trump burn it to the ground, and others will just be duped into believing that Democrats will be the end of the country so might as well vote for the corrupt loser Trump because someone has to save us. And hey, it's OK if he makes a little scratch on the side and bends some rules.

The economy will slow and Trump will lose his only "accomplishment," so look for more tax cuts or flat out offering cash in return for votes. We gonna get paid. He will lie to the military about increased benefits to get their votes. He will promise things to states and companies that he can't deliver on. He'll blame the Fed on the economy and somehow will work Democrats into the picture.

Finally, when it's all said and done, when he can't buy any more votes, spread any more lies, rely on any more foreigners for help....he'll play the immigration angle.

But I could be wrong.

Trump is simply OTT! Does he not believe that he can defeat Biden at the polls. Trump has zero evidence against Biden.

Trump said he didn't care about the Russian interference in the elections and last week Putin joked he will be interfering again in next year's election.

The wealth of Trump's daughter and her husband increased by $100 million last year. The Trump business is raking in the bucks with Trump's visits to his Florida club and golf courses. Even getting U.S. military planes refueled in Scotland to ensure the business of his golf club there.

Trump took all of his children, except Baron on his state visit to Britain. Very unusual. Did they pay for their their own flights and hotels bills?

Hunter Biden is a lawyer

Hunter Biden, resigned his direct commission as an ensign in the U.S. Naval Reserve. Although he was 43 years old at the time of his commissioning, three years over age, he sought an age waiver and got it. Biden was serving as a public affairs officer; mostly, he went to Norfolk, Va., once a month and did a weekend of service.

A direct commission is a little-known entry point to get into the military. It’s a way for experienced professionals to serve; it’s mostly done for doctors, nurses and dentists. But age 40 is pretty much the brick wall for those outside of those disciplines.

So he has a member of the U.S. Navy but the reserve branch.

This is like when Trump said “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” he said, referring to the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s deleted messages. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.” Hehe

-7 ( +2 / -9 )

Trump‘s only crime is his asking for justice to be served

This is a lie.

So basically, we should just ignore how a man who has zero experience in the gas industry makes a salary of over $50,000 a month and who’s father on tape admitting and bragging he would block $1 billion to the Ukrainians if they don’t fire the prosecutor investigating his son? Wow! Just imagine for a second and let’s substitute the name Hunter for DTJ or Eric Trump you think the Democrats would still cry foul? You think the media would would say, nothing here to see? Lol

You should ignore lies, yes.

Have to laugh at the biased headline. They don't even try to hide it anymore. Never seen the AP use "unsubstantiated" to qualify even the most absurd charges against Trump.

That's because charges against Trump are backed up with facts. Racist (denied housing to black people), xenophobic (pushed to have immigrants shot), Nazi-lover (called Nazis "fine people"), sexist (boasted about grabbing women "by the pussy"), brainless (watch literally any of his speeches) loser (lost the popular vote, consistently low approval ratings).

Dems are the very last people on earth to preach about democracy.

You despise democracy. That's why you like rule by the minority and want an autocratic system of government.

Americans need to know that the deep state is doing

The "deep state" doesn't exist.

No mention of a quid pro quo

Yes there was.

the President keeps taunting them.

What, by screaming like a tiny baby in press conferences? President Babybrains is so stupid, useless and immature that no-one with an IQ above room temperature would admire him.

It’s becoming more evidently clear that the Democrats as corrupt as they are really overstepped their legal authorities

The Dems of course wouldn't want Biden investigated because they don't want the ugly stuff to come out in daylight. If the Bidens are clean, they wouldn't be so afraid to be investigated thoroughly but instead deflected attention on Trump. It's highly unlikely that someone in this messed-up political groupie (for the lack of a better term) aside from Trump & co actually still have some conscience left to do the right thing and investigate the Bidens. I like to see fairness and what's hiding in the Bidens' closet.

Oh, is that an an apology?

Trump is definitely owed one for sure.

For all the thousands of posts saying the Steele Dossier was a huge violation of law for allowing foreigners to influence our election?

Yes, to sabotage and to scheme up a scam to tilt the election to a woman who was so corrupt that pretty much she couldn’t win on her own, but since that didn’t pan out, the other idea was to make a bogus claim about Trump dealing with the Russians which also got severely squashed after 2 years of deep exhaustive efforts.

Of saying that the Mueller investigation was a witch hunt and flawed from the start since the Steele Dossier was used as part of its basis?

Yup.

What I find most amazing, is the one phrase you won't see any Trumper utter here - "I would like you to do us a favor THOUGH"....said after the Ukraine President asked for more Javelin missiles to stop Russian tanks.

You don't see it on any thread - because they know its the smoking gun - its Donnie admitting in writing in the transcript of a quid-pro-quo - a clear abuse of authority.

We understand this causes Trumper's brains to freeze - as they realize all the legal jeopardy this entails.

And what's more amazing is that for all the second-grade level cover-up, Trump gave the transcript to Schiff - on the recommendation by Giuliani. Yes, Trump's genius lawyer told him to turn over the evidence of his abuse of authority.

When impeachment is done, and Donnie is kicked to the curb and turned over to the NYSD Attorney, it won't be Schiff or Pelosi or Nadler that gets the blame, it will be Crazy Rudy....

Guess that's what happens when you hire "only the best"....

You should ignore lies, yes.

Democrats do that a lot these days, but yeah, I do ignore them.

That's because charges against Trump are backed up with facts. Racist (denied housing to black people), xenophobic (pushed to have immigrants shot), Nazi-lover (called Nazis "fine people"), sexist (boasted about grabbing women "by the pussy"), brainless (watch literally any of his speeches) loser (lost the popular vote, consistently low approval ratings).

Ok, more debunked junk and?

You despise democracy. That's why you like rule by the minority and want an autocratic system of government.

No, Democrats hate Democracy because if they believed and would embrace it, they would try to beat Trump at the ballot box, that would be the normal and democratic way to do it but they know they can’t do that, so they have to try and dirty him up either with a phony Russian hoax or taxes or past relationships before he was President or now that he was on the phone with the Ukrainian President wanting to seek information about a former drug user with no experience getting paid $50k and coming from a so called whistleblower who got information second handed (which is the clear distinction) we now know is a registered Democrat and who admitted to being politically bias towards the President and did so out of favoritism to one of the Democrat candidates. lol

This has nothing to do with whether you consider yourself a Republican or a Democrat. No, this has everything to do with whether or not you want to normalize foreign intervention in U.S. elections.

ah yes that's the whole point of the Impeachment investigation, but many seem to think its another witch hunt yet there is recorded proof both audio and transcripts * (which have also beren tried to covered up) of Trump seeking help from foreign powers to dig up dirt on a political opponent, something which both Trump and his lawyer clearly admit、and is clearly illegal under US laws. Yet still many think investigation is not warranted. The whataboutism excuses are in overdrive. LMFAO

As others have told you, Biden and the US administration were one among many countries pushing for justice reform in Kiev, including the dismissal of this prosecutor, and it was before his son was working in the Ukraine.

Ok, you can believe that, I’ll go by what “AG Barr” will find out, that’s the only thing that will matter legally in the end other than that, all the other media supporting Biden Democrats surrogates don’t mean anything.

Also, as I'VE said before, NO-ONE CARES ABOUT JOE BIDEN.

You said, but it doesn’t matter. What Barr does, says and finds out that’s all that matters, he’s the AG, the top cop, so lets see. If he finds nothing, I’ll sincerely apologize, if he does, hope the crow will be tasty.

You hate it. You've said before that you like it when the minority rules, and you don't care about the votes of non-white people. You want a fascist white male king to rule you like a serf. That's a weird position, but whatever. Most Americans disagree with you, though.

Im not really interested in all this Donny stuff, Im really amazed at this Biden guy and his son

Having served myself, this is just amazing how that go excused and covered up

-7 ( +1 / -8 )

Actually thats not true. He was serving as a commissioned officer with contract obligation, and could be called to active duty at any time. If he was IRR, different story but he was serving as an officer with active duty 2 weeks of active duty commitments every year. Commissioned officers are held to a higher standard than warrant, staff NCOs and enlisted ranks. You have no idea, as usual, what your talking about and instead are excusing dishonorable conduct, because he is the son of a Democrat. When/where did he pop + on his piss test? Piss test are not done on reserve drill days, as I recall. He must of been on active duty at the time

I do know what I'm talking about and also I served in the Royal Navy which also has a reserve and run in the same way as the U.S.

A reserve officer/sailor is unlikely to be called into service unless America went to war or there were a national emergency. The role of the officer/sailor would also be part of any decision to call them up. Hunter Biden was in PR and one of the most unlikely to be called up. Just like the ones working the recruitment centers.

There is no evidence I can find on Hunter Biden receiving a dishonorable discharge. He resigned which you can do at any time.

People who serve in the military and leave, might have to agree to a period in the reserves but you don't have to actually turn up. I was one of those.

We don't know the details of the case. Driving DUI would have been much worse.

There is no evidence to suggest Hunter Biden is/was a crack addict nor was he charged with any criminal offense.

Hunter Biden isn't running for office so none of it actually matters.

Being on active duty in PR is very different of an officer at sea and in charge of a crew/ship.

The Democrats will slit anyone’s throat just to keep out of prison and dirty up anyone that gets in their way.

good that we both agree on that. 

Dont have too much hopes on the pardons through, Donny has even bigger worries now.

The way he’s been raising money, surpassing the Democrats should give them even more pause, but hey, they want to go through with this, go ahead, Mueller tried, 40 FBI agents tried, 19 angry Democrat Hillary donor lawyers tried, but somehow Nancy will succeed even though the GOP will never remove him, Yeah, sure....

Nancy is pushing al the right buttons,

Trust me, I pray she goes through this, it makes it all easier for Trump to slide into his second term.

Guilty people exactly do that, they rant and they rave, squeal their innocence , but when everybody else jumps ship they go meekly. Nixon was exactly the same. 

Clinton was a smart cookie though, played it cool.

Nixon resigned, he really had no choice there was tangible evidence, Clinton lied on camera in a video taped deposition, but hey, even though he lied under oath to a federal grand jury had sex with an intern in the Oval Office, he was never removed, so with what the Democrats have, Trump has zero to fear in that case.

Is THAT how you 'make America great again', by begging assistance from foreign thug regimes? No that is not 'patriotic' at all!

lincolnman

Really, come on Trumpers, you really want a foreign government to help a candidate in a US election? So that foreign government now has leverage over a US President?

What if Xi said, I'll help you, but you have to cancel that aid package to Taiwan, or quit those pesky US Navy patrols in the South China Sea, or no longer support the democracy protests in Hong Kong.

Get real - asking a foreign government to meddle in our election is traitorous...

And your President is the biggest traitor to have ever set foot in the Oval Office...

Even the military misconduct by Hunter isn't equal to Trump's misconduct over the years. Including being in bed with a porn star while his wife was pregnant with their child. Forming a fake university and taking money off students in return for nothing. Six bankruptcies. Many others.

Hunter Biden was discharged from the navy and not dishonorably discharged and in fact just resigned. An administrative discharge.

When we compare Trump and Hunter Biden we have a president with a very sordid background, lacking any diplomatic and political experience who does even know how to rule his own ship, deserted by his appointed generals who couldn't take it anymore and this is the guy with his finger on the nuke button who requires no ones permission to push it.

Giuliani is feeding information to the State Dept and calling it attorney-client privilege.

Several GOP senators have willfully offered misleading information, including Graham and Jeffries.

Trump is soliciting help from foreign governments to help his re-election campaign.

There has been no information linking Biden’s son to corruption, unless you want to include the same criteria that makes Trump guilty of withholding aid for personal gain.

Trump will offer any foreign government benefit it it helps his election, even the Russians.

If the Bidens had these secret dealings with China, why on earth would China even investigate him?

The Bidens indeed do have questionable issues regarding different businesses around the world though, but that's a separate issue. Let's get one corrupt public figure at a time.

Another whistle blower comes forth from the IRS saying Donnie and Pence's tax returns were given special protection from audits...

But the biggest bombshell was provided by the Trumpers here who after three years of ranting and raving about the Steele Dossier and foreign influence in our elections took out a giant spatula and flipped that over - no problem with asking foreigners for dirt - just like Dirty Donnie did and is still doing.... Oh the humiliation...

The only ones going to prison are Donny's cronies or ex-cronies and the Dems dont have to do much, Donny is pretty much gifting them away.

All the money in the world cannot save a criminal, Donny's good friend Epstein realised it.

Also there are a lot of people invested in keeping Donny in power, Putin, Liddle Kim and MBS to name a few.

it makes it all easier for Trump to slide into his second term.

With Donny unraveling, so much that even friendly countries are scared of meeting him, you should be worried about the first term. Article 25 seems more and more realistic.

Hey the bright lining could be that Donny and Rudy might end up at the same asylum.

Nixon resigned, he really had no choice there was tangible evidence,

Let's see what Donnie has said about China before.....

“I beat the people from China. I win against China. You can win against China if you're smart. But our people don't have a clue. We give state dinners to the heads of China. I said why are you doing state dinners for them? They're ripping us left and right. Just take them to McDonald's and go back to the negotiating table.”

“China’s upset because of the way Donald Trump is talking about trade with China. They’re ripping us off, folks, it’s time. I’m so happy they’re upset.”

“There are people who wish I wouldn’t refer to China as our enemy. But that’s exactly what they are. They have destroyed entire industries by utilizing low-wage workers, cost us tens of thousands of jobs, spied on our businesses, stolen our technology, and have manipulated and devalued their currency, which makes importing our goods more expensive – and sometimes, impossible.”

On labeling China an enemy “Because it's an economic enemy, because they have taken advantage of us like nobody in history. They have; it's the greatest theft in the history of the world what they've done to the United States. They've taken our jobs.”

So, Donnie now wants to cooperate with the "enemy" to look for dirt on Biden?

Isn't cooperating with the enemy a crime?

We already know his quid-pro-quo offer was an abuse of authority...

So, the entire point of this inquiry is to annoy Trump

No, it's called following their Constitutional duty after the matter was brought to their attention by a Trump-appointed Inspector General, who made the determination that the allegations were credible and worthy of further investigation. Take your complaints up with him if you don't like it.

Unfortunately for them it's having the opposite effect. 

Maybe in your world, but a good part of the country is paying close attention to this.
