Trump Goes on Live Television to Do Exact Thing Whistleblower Said He Did

President Trump publicly called for Ukraine and China to investigate Joe Biden while speaking to reporters before boarding Marine One on Thursday morning, adding fuel to the impeachment inquiry launched last week by House Democrats.

“[Ukraine] should investigate the Bidens,” Trump yelled over the whir of the nearby presidential helicopter on Thursday, flailing his hands for emphasis. “Likewise, China should start an investigation into the Bidens. What happened in China is just about as bad as what happened in Ukraine.”

The public call underscores Trump’s belief that he’s done nothing wrong in asking foreign nations to interfere in the 2020 election on his behalf. During the same press gaggle he reiterated that his July 25th call with Zelensky was “perfect,” despite a partial readout of the call revealing that he asked Zelensky for a “favor” (to investigate a debunked 2016 election interference conspiracy theory, as well as Biden) immediately after Zelensky brought up his willingness to cooperate with the U.S. in order to receive military aid Trump mysteriously froze shortly before the call.

Soon after Trump spoke with the press on Thursday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), whom Trump has routinely attacked since the impeachment inquiry was launched last week, clarified that there is indeed something wrong with using the power of the presidency to pressure foreign governments into investigating political opponents. “The President cannot use the power of his office to pressure foreign leaders to investigate his political opponents,” Schiff wrote. “His rant this morning reinforces the urgency of our work. America is a Republic, if we can keep it.”
