Whitaker says the Mueller investigation is nearly complete.

 

 

 

 


It's a smokescreen from someone who is running cover from Trump. This is the most complex criminal investigation in US political history. I'm picking Mueller has a LONG way to go yet.

Huawei

 

I know there are other issues, such as "taking" copyright technology but this strikes me as odd

 

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/01/29/business/huawei-china-us-analysis/index.html

 

"In recent years, China has announced plans to pump hundreds of billions of dollars into building up key domestic tech industries such as microchips, artificial intelligence and electric cars. That helped trigger the trade war, with the US government attacking what it says are unfair Chinese policies aimed at boosting Chinese businesses at the expense of American ones, especially in the tech sector."

 

Isn't this Trumps trade practices as well? MAGA  We want the best deal for the US, Buy American. Or is China's support of their businesses deemed as unfair?  I can't see why.

 

"Trump's top trade negotiator has insisted that the pursuit of Meng by US authorities is a legal matter that is completely separate from the trade talks. But Trump undermined that stance by controversially suggesting he could intervene in the case if it would help reach a trade deal with Beijing."

 

Oh dear. How to Win Friends and Influence People

The New York Times - A Growing Chorus of Republican Critics for Trump’s Foreign Policy

 

Jan. 29, 2019  (intro only)

 

 

WASHINGTON — They think pulling out of Syria and Afghanistan would be a debacle.

 

They think North Korea cannot be trusted.

 

They think the Islamic State is still a threat to America.

 

They think Russia is bad and NATO is good.

 

The trouble is their president does not agree.

 

More than two years into his administration, the disconnect between President Trump and the Republican establishment on foreign policy has rarely been as stark.

 

In recent days, the president’s own advisers and allies have been pushing back, challenging his view of the world and his prescription for its problems.

 

The growing discontent among Republican national security hawks was most evident on Tuesday when Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader and perhaps Mr. Trump’s most important partner in Congress, effectively rebuked the president by introducing a measure denouncing “a precipitous withdrawal” of American troops from Syria and Afghanistan.

 

The senator’s repudiation came on the same day that Mr. Trump’s own intelligence chiefs gave Congress a radically different assessment of international threats facing the United States from the president’s own.

 

They warned about fresh Russian efforts to interfere in American elections, predicted that North Korea would never agree to give up its nuclear weapons and made clear that the Islamic State is still plotting attacks around the world.

 

They made no mention of Mr. Trump’s top security priority of building a wall along the southwestern border. ...

The Washington Post - McConnell says bill that would make Election Day a federal holiday is a ‘power grab’ by Democrats

 

January 30 at 5:17 PM

 


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that a Democratic bill that would make Election Day a federal holiday is a “power grab,” sparking a fierce backlash online.

 

McConnell was speaking about H.R. 1, legislation that Democrats have made a centerpiece of their agenda since retaking the House earlier this month. ...

 

The far-reaching legislation would prohibit the purging of voter rolls, require presidential and vice-presidential candidates to release their tax returns, compel states to adopt independent redistricting commissions and create a matching system for small-dollar donations to congressional campaigns, among other changes. ...

 

“Voting is a power grab. By citizens,” Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) said in a tweet Wednesday afternoon. ...

Comparisons of America with the fall of the Roman Empire are a bit hackneyed so I have mixed feelings about posting this, but on reflection I still think it is worth a look.
