VIDEO: Shep Smith Argues “President Trump may have Violated Federal Law” Over China Comment

During his daily show, Fox News host Shepard Smith reported that he believes President Trump may have violated federal law on live TV.

Shepard Smith:

“The president asked Ukraine and China to investigate his political rival on television for all the world to hear…Fox News knows of no federal investigation of his rival for any violations of any American law. If it is determined that the president made that request to help his campaign for reelection, President Trump may have violated federal law.

It is illegal to ask a foreign national or foreign country for any political assistance. To our knowledge, no president before President Trump in American history has publicly asked an adversary in to investigate a rival…

Today, the president did exactly what he’s accused of doing. This time on live television. And this time, he asked the totalitarian government of China to investigate his will ahead of trade talks scheduled for next week.”


Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks called President Trump’s move “stupid.”

You know why @realDonaldTrump keeps committing crimes in public like asking China to investigate his political opponent? Because he is too stupid to understand it is illegal no matter how many times people tell him. Explanation is right in front of you- he is monumentally stupid.

Rep. Sylvia Garcia (TX) wrote:

In calling on China to investigate a political opponent, @realDonaldTrump has again betrayed his oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.

He’s undermining our national security, elections, and standing in the world.

Late September President Trump tweeted:

“The real story involves Hunter Biden going around the world and collecting large payments from foreign governments and foreign oligarchs.” Peter Schweizer Laura Ingraham Hunter made a fortune in Ukraine and in China. He knew nothing about Energy, or anything else.
