Donald Trump is sinking in the quicksand of corruption. Rather than stop the drowning, he digs down. One of his tricks is doing his dirty work in the public. People do not know how to deal with a man with no shame, no morals, and no adherence to the law. This is what he just did.
CNN’s Jim Acosta tweeted out the president on the South Lawn of the White House talking to reporters over the sound of his helicopter ready to transport him to Air Force One and from there to Florida.
It has always been illegal to request another country to interfere in US elections. Trump had no shame. He blurted out in public that he wanted Ukraine to investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter, to dig up dirt on his top Democratic opponent for 2020.
The younger Biden sat on the board of a Ukrainian energy company. Later that company was investigated, but there was no evidence Hunter Biden had done anything wrong. In fact, he was never even investigated. That obviously did not matter to Trump.
As long as he was asking, the president decided to do a “Russia, if you’re listening” only this time with China. He does not see anything wrong with doing this and has assumed that everyone else operated from his own perspective.
Earlier, the president told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that of course, he would take opposition research from a foreign company, insisting “that’s how it’s done.”
This is Acosta’s tweet showing Trump in action below:
‘And this time there is a verbatim transcript.’
The original tweet came from moderate podcast show host Charlie Sykes:
‘Forget the “coverup.” It’s all happening in plain sight.’
