Freudian hypernegation

Eileen Sullivan, "Trump Publicly Urges China to Investigate the Bidens", NYT 10/3/2019:

Mr. Trump has defended his conversation with Mr. Zelensky as "perfect" even after a reconstructed transcript of the call was released that showed him seeking help from Ukraine in investigating the Bidens. And he doubled down on his request on Thursday.

"I would say that President Zelensky, if it were me, I would recommend that they start an investigation into the Bidens," Mr. Trump said. "Because nobody has any doubt that they weren't crooked."

Or more precisely, Freudian negative concord?

So I would say that president Zelensky
if it were me
I would recommend that they start
an investigation into the Bidens
because nobody has any doubt
that they weren't crooked
that was a crooked deal a hundred percent
