Conservatives have dug up an appearance from Presidential loser Hillary Clinton on the Rachel Maddow show where she said “China, if you’re listening, why don’t you get Trump’s tax returns?”
The context was Clinton criticizing Mueller’s conclusion and mocking Trump’s attacks on her email scandal.

President Trump has faced intense criticism and scrutiny over his calls for Ukraine and China to investigate alleged corruption from Joe and Hunter Biden.
Hillary Clinton: The Republicans in the Senate wouldn’t at all go forward with some of the bipartisan legislation that was meant to secure our elections under orders from the White House.
Imagine, Rachel, that you had one of the Democratic nominees for 2020 on your show, and that person said, you know, the only other adversary of ours who is anywhere near as good as the Russians is China. So, why should Russia have all the fun? And since Russia is clearly backing Republicans, why don’t we ask China to back us.
Rachel Maddow: I hereby tonight ask China –
Hillary Clinton: That’s right. And not only that, China, if you’re listening, why don’t you get Trump’s tax returns. I’m sure our media would richly reward you.
Now according to the Mueller report, that is not conspiracy because it’s done right out in the open.
So, if after this hypothetical Democratic candidate says this on your show, within hours, all of a sudden, the IRS offices are bombarded with incredibly sophisticated cyber tools looking for Trump’s tax returns, and then extracts and them and then passes them to whatever the new WikiLeaks happens to be and they start being unraveled and disclosed – nothing wrong with that.
I mean, if you’re going let Russia get away with what they did and are still doing according to Christopher Wray, the current FBI director, who said that last week, they’re in our election systems. We’re worried about 2020, he said.
So, hey, let’s have a great power contest, and let’s get the Chinese in on the side of somebody else. Just saying that shows how absurd the situation we find ourselves in.
