    They're requesting a briefing on the matter on his claims. This is where his lies will come out, no doubt. Hopefully, we will get to see Trump's "evidence".

    Did Xi JinPing boast about the outcome of Trump’s decisions due to his influence and party members in Congress and Senate?

    Does China have something in Washington with similar weight and influence as AIPAC does?

    These two terms “Convincing” and “meddling” look like they can both be twisted to their own likings these days.

    China has targeted products with tariffs in regions that support Trump. Pretty simple.

    Trump and his administration do the same by taking down names of those who don’t support their policies to punish them.

    what? The president made a vague claim? Nunes can't back up a claim, any claim?

    Must be a day ending in 'Y'.

    That is just more White House rubbish. The tariffs China laid in retaliation to Trump's idiocy hit pretty much across the board. It's not just Trump supporting regions that are being affected.

    So today we have convincing,meddling, and colluding. Depending on whom does what and whether you are on the same side of the fence or not there seems to be different terms with different definitions for the above. There are seem to be a different set of standards on how those apply to various countries and people.

    After all this start the conspiracy theories.

    Oh look, the Democrats are accusing Trump of something. Wow. That’s new. I wonder what’s going on? This has never happened before.

    Man, they are STILL fuming over Hilary losing, aren’t they? :p

    Sane people know these accusations are uber-Level laughable. What will his base do? That's the question. Will they roll with it like they have his other laughable jokes? Who knows.

    Trump is our first certifiable pres. I'm not sure if he's trolling dems or his own base. When he leaves office, the next theory might be he was a democratic operative. I just don't think any party would elect someone this dumb.... there has to be other motives.

    No, they're not accsusing him of "something". He said it. It's on video... He said China is interfering in the midterms and targeting farmers. Care to try again?

    Didn't read the article or any other piece on the subject matter, huh? He made an accusation that further damages our relations with the PRC and it is almost certainly a false accusation. He goes after China, where there is no evidence of them interfering in our elections, and completely ignores and denies, the proven and ongoing interference from his buddy Putin. Might I suggest you stop watching Fox News and expand your horizons?

    We don't know that China isn't backing Democrats, we need an investigation by a special council.:rolleyes:

    Correct. We do know Russia backed Trump, hence the investigation.

    Trump seems to think the investigation is solely about him rather than trying to understand how/why/to what extent Russia interfered in the election.

    If people aren't concerned about it simply because the person they backed won, we are in trouble.

    We don't know they didn't back Trump.

    If you can't see the flaw in that logic, I can't help you.
