Oh. My. God.
During chopper-talk on the South Lawn, Trump just called on China to investigate the Bidens, along with Ukraine doing so.
Recall yesterday how I noted that Trump would attempt to normalize the entire crime? The “Yeah, I did it, it was GREAT!” defense?
I didn’t think he would do it this way, or this strongly, this soon!
The ramifications are rippling across the nation, and twitter, already.
It is against the law to solicit political help from a foreign gov’t
He’s breaking the law.
In plain view.
It’s as if a bank robber called the police and said, “I’m walking into the bank now with a gun and a note. Meet me here in two minutes? I’ll show ya the cash I stole.” https://t.co/SpKPVPN3Mi

So now Trump is openly asking CHINA to go after the Bidens! He’s poking the nation in the eye and daring us to hold him accountable for repeatedly violating American law and sovereignty. We have no choice but to remove him if we want to preserve our country.

“If China doesn’t do what we want…”
30 seconds later, Trump says China needs to investigate his domestic rivals. https://t.co/kFZzOwS6Tf

I keep saying this, but the amazing thing about Donald Trump is he is endlessly confessing in public. You don't need secret tapes. You just need to turn a camera on him, or give him a phone connected to Twitter.

I am at a loss for words.
He is forcing Republicans to convict him.
Pelosi and Schiff need to have a press conference within two hours and declare the impeachment matter “urgent,” and “necessary to protect the integrity of the constitution and 2020 election, this man is recklessly tearing the nation apart.” They would get the votes in the House, and I swear, they might damn well get a conviction in the Senate.
This is amazing.
And behind closed doors, the former envoy to the Ukraine, is telling House lawyers all about what Trump did in secret.
