New Report Suggests Trump Even Asked Chinese President To Investigate Warren

He's going after his political rivals.

Donald Trump suggested that China should investigate Joe Biden and his son, apparently in an attempt to go after his political rival.  But as Sen. Elizabeth Warren has been surging in recent polls, it appears he’s going after her, too, and not just by calling her Pocahontas.

Take a deep breath for this one: After Donald Trump has repeatedly denied asking Ukraine’s president to investigate his rival Joe Biden and his son in exchange for financial aid, the former reality show star on Thursday openly discussed the possibility of asking China’s president, Xi Jinping, and Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

As it happens, he discussed Warren with China’s leader, too, while on the phone call that is housed in a highly secured server, according to CNN. Chinese officials were startled by Trump’s requests. We can just add openly requesting political assistance from foreign governments to the pile of Trump’s misdeeds.

Trump’s pay for play:

During a phone call with Xi on June 18, Trump raised Biden’s political prospects as well as those of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who by then had started rising in the polls, according to two people familiar with the discussion. In that call, Trump also told Xi he would remain quiet on Hong Kong protests as trade talks progressed.”

Trump called for China to investigate his rival while his administration is currently negotiating with China to resolve a trade dispute. There is no evidence that former Vice President Joe Biden received money from China. As for Hunter Biden, apparently, it’s bad if Trump’s rival receives money from a foreign country, but it’s OK if the current “president’s” children receive money and a metric fuckton of copyrights from foreign countries.

It’s not clear what Trump had to say or request from Xi but everything comes out in the wash. Trump has claimed that he’s targeting Biden because he’s “corrupt” — but that has already been debunked.

Trump, of course, is in panic-mode.

Warren isn’t amused.

Trump excels at one thing: projection. One example out of the massive pile of his corrupt behavior is that his own charitable foundation was forced to dissolve over a pattern of an egregious “pattern of illegality.”

For another example, Trump just asked China, a dictatorship, to interfere in a U.S. election.

Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
