#REDFLAG: If Trump was deliberately withholding defensive aid to Ukraine, in exchange for fabricated dirt on the Bidens...

What is he willing to GIVE China in exchange for fabricated dirt on the Bidens...while he's in the midst of a failing Trade War that's hurting the economy?
#FLAG: Worth noting, Trump and his Republican defenders keep mentioning China...
#WATCH: About a week ago, I flagged my concern that Trump might ask China for help investigating the Bidens...

...giving China leverage in trade negotiations, or perhaps even, concessions in exchange.

Today, Trump asked for China's help from the WH lawn.
#NOTE: Before Trump called on China to investigate the Bidens...

He noted a delegation from China will be in the U.S. next week for trade talks.

"If they don't do what we want, we have tremendous power."

30 seconds later, he made clear what he wants.

#REDFLAG: Trump raised Biden with President Xi of China during a June call.

The call records are on the code-word level WH server.

Trump also brought up Warren. On the same call, he told Xi he'd stay quiet on Hong Kong protests as trade talks progressed.
#REDFLAG: Informal WH adviser on China, Michael Pillsbury, received info about Hunter Biden during a visit to Beijing, the same week Trump urged China to investigate.

WaPo adds: Pillsbury met with Trump before his trip, but denies he was asked to probe.

Q: "Were you joking when you asked China to investigate the Bidens?"

TRUMP: "If they want to look into something, they can look into it...As far as I'm concerned, if China wants to look into something, I think that's great."
