The secret Seychelles meeting Robert Mueller is zeroing in on, explained
H/T Vox
As usual, Vox is doin’ some ‘splainin’ of nefarious goings on by the Trump criminal cabal…
Salient quotes
“George Nader — an adviser to the de facto leader of the United Arab Emirates — is cooperating with Mueller’s probe. In a sign of his importance to the investigation, Nader testified before a grand jury last week”
and
“That’s big because Nader helped organize, and attended, that curious Seychelles meeting on January 11, 2017, shortly before Trump’s inauguration. The meeting brought together Erik Prince, Trump donor and founder of the private security company Blackwater, with Kirill Dmitriev, who manages a Russian sovereign wealth fund and is thought to be close to Vladimir Putin.

Anonymous sources have long claimed to reporters that the purpose of the Seychelles meeting was for Trump’s team to covertly communicate with Putin’s team. After all, it happened just weeks after Jared Kushner reportedly told the Russians that he wanted to set up a back channel through which they could communicate.”

More scheiss, giant fan…What could possibly have followed???

Timing of Trump tariff announcement still up in the air

I am still trying to trace down the so called ‘evidence’ that China is dumping steel in the US.
There’s a statement from Canadian Banking Firm CBIC economist that Canada is possibly involved, but China does not even show up in the top ten import countries, and VietNam is 10th at 2%. Perhaps it’s coming through India, but you’d think it would be easy to investigate. If a country is exporting more steel than it has capacity to produce, then duh…I think this steel dumping issue is a giant red herring.
Go after intellectual property theft, you idiots.
