What Happened in the Trump Impeachment Inquiry This Week – The New York Times
Trump asks China to investigate the Bidens
In an extraordinary move on Thursday, President Trump, already facing impeachment for pressuring Ukraine to investigate a political rival, publicly called on China to examine former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., another request for help from a foreign power that could benefit him in next year’s election. On Monday it was revealed that Mr. Trump had also asked Australia for help in an effort he had hoped would discredit the origins of the Mueller investigation. To tally that all up, Mr. Trump and his attorney general have sought help to discredit the president’s opponents from Ukraine, Australia, Italy and, according to one report, Britain.
