Trump: 'China Should Start an Investigation into the Bidens'

  • Executive

By: Nate James

In Brief:

President Trump is doubling-down on his suspicions the Biden family has behaved in corrupt ways, calling on China to investigate the Bidens, too.

The Background:

As RP reported previously, the U.S. House of Representatives, which has a Democrat majority, launched an impeachment investigation against President Trump after an anonymous “whistleblower,” who we now know was a CIA officer detailed to the White House, complained that the president pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to “look into” questionable behavior by Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

Earlier today, Trump told a group of reporters, “China should start an investigation into the Bidens.”

Fox News reports that Patrick Schweizer, journalist and author of “Secret Empires," “argued it's ‘legitimate’ for Biden and his son to be probed because Biden was vice president at the time."

Why It Matters:

Impeachment proceedings against President Trump and the “dirt” that is unearthed thereby will undoubtedly affect the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.  

Notable Quotes:

"The bottom line is this needs to be investigated. What we know for a fact is in Ukraine and in China, the only two countries where Joe Biden was point-person on U.S. foreign policy, his son cashed in big time in both countries.”
