House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) told reporters Thursday that President Trump's call for China to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden is "repugnant" and "ought to be condemned by every member" of Congress. "A president of the United States encouraging a foreign nation to interfere again to help his campaign by investigating a rival is a fundamental breach of the presidential oath." Why it matters: Schiff has been tasked with leading the impeachment investigation into Trump's alleged efforts to push the government of Ukraine to investigate Biden. As that investigation heats up, Trump on Thursday appeared to again call for a foreign power to interfere in the 2020 election — this time in public. The big picture: Schiff spoke to reporters outside an ongoing deposition with former special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, who resigned last week after being named in the whistleblower complaint. Volker is expected to testify that he did not know that military aid to Ukraine had been frozen at the time of Trump's July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, but that he was aware of Rudy Giuliani's interest in having Ukraine investigate Biden, per the New York Times. Volker reportedly told Giuliani that he believed allegations about the Bidens were baseless and has told colleagues he was not involved in the pressure campaign. The whistleblower complaint notes that after the July phone call, Volker and U.S. Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland met with Ukrainian officials and provided them with advice on how to "navigate" Trump's demands.

Oh my. Now it has gotten to China.

Does this ever end?

How many foreign leaders are being asked to participate in the illegal and criminal backroom dealings of the Trump Administration?

I hope some of these leaders say NO to the blackmail.

The US used to be a bastion of hope, and now we look like mobsters...

So you're ok with corruption? Again, this is the chief law enforcement officer of the United States trying to get rid of corrupt members of our government. How can you be against that?

Oh my, these reports and facts keep[ adding up.

Does anyone still, still think there is not going to be an impeachement?

Really?

Really?

I know this is hard, but this is how our country deals with an out of control despot president.

The founders were wise.

God Bless America, and thank god for the constitution that allows us to get rid of insane despots.

Hey I've got an idea. Since it's just about corruption, how about we make a deal.

We investigate Donald Trump and his myriad of accusations first, and if found guilty, we impeach and prosecute him. Then we can go after Joe Biden.

If you're really just about investigating corruption, then it's only logical to start with the people who are currently running the government. Afterwards, we can look at people like Biden who are candidates to run the government.

If it's just about corruption, surely you don't have any problem with that..

Who said that?

Another strawman thing? Are you going to strawman forever, and try to put words in other mouths?

Go strawman on 4chan, or wherever.

Don't lie, and don't try to tell me what I said. Everyone can read what I wrote, and it is not the insane crape in your text.

Its more like by repetition you think you can convince people and change prevailing sentiment.

Schiff, Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, Obamma, Clinton. .thewhole cadre have enough on them to inquire aid from foreign governments.

Sounds like folks are gettin scared

Oh my...maybe there is a reason Trump is asking China... Doesn't seem to be any backroom dealings...all out in the open, right up front. Did you ever wonder about that there is a good chance there is serious breach of ethics with Biden? Of course not...

I guess Trump is a fast learner since he learned from the experts... DNC, Obama and Hillary...

And pretty much the one most likely to be removed from office through impeachment...

How do you like your blue-eyed boy now, mister death?
