    President Trump needs to wait. With what has been discovered recently about the jury fore person the conviction should be over turned on appeal due to jury misconduct. IF a new trial is ordered, Stone's legal team will then petition to have all evidence developed either directly or indirectly from the now defunct FISA warrant block. Everything else then becomes entrapment.

    The Economic Cost of Current Tariffs


    This analysis focuses exclusively on the impact of tariffs unilaterally imposed by the president. These include tariffs—either enacted or officially ordered—under Section 232 or Section 301. Section 232 allows the president to impose trade barriers if the Department of Commerce finds that imports threaten U.S. national security. Section 301 enables the president to impose tariffs or quotas when the United States Trade Representative (USTR) finds that other nations are engaging in unfair trade practices.


    The table below lists the approximate value of imports that are currently facing new tariffs under President Trump. It additionally displays estimates of how the tariffs could increase nationwide consumer costs, assuming that 100 percent of the costs from the tariffs will be passed on to consumers and that current import levels will not change. While this estimate is an upper-bound, it represents the upward pressure that is placed on all prices in the economy.


    Altogether, the president’s tariffs could increase nationwide consumer costs by nearly $78 billion annually. This estimate includes the president’s latest tariff actions. Previously, after President Trump had already imposed the first three rounds of tariffs on approximately $250 billion of U.S. imports from China, the president ordered new 10 percent tariffs to be imposed the remainder of imports from China. Upon China announcing its intention to retaliate, the president increased these new tariffs from 10 percent to 15 percent. The 15 percent levy was planned in two waves; tariffs on list 4A went into effect on September 1, 2019, and tariffs on list 4B were planned to go into effect on December 15, 2019. China’s retaliation also spurred President Trump to order an increase in the third tranche of tariffs – 25 percent tariffs already in effect on roughly $200 billion of imports – to 30 percent.


    These tariffs were recently scaled down as a part of the president’s “phase one” trade deal with China. The president announced that he will be reducing the tariffs previously imposed on September 1 from 15 percent to 7.5 percent, suspending the 15 percent tariffs planned to go into effect on December 15, and indefinitely suspending the increase on the third tranche of tariffs from 25 percent to 30 percent. Together, these actions are expected to save American consumers $43.1 billion per year. The phase one trade agreement also included an agreement from China to purchase $200 billion of additional U.S. exports (over 2017 levels) in the next two years, including $77 billion of manufactured goods and $32 billion of U.S. agriculture products, as well as provisions on intellectual property, technology transfer, agriculture, financial services, and currency.


    On January 4, 2020, President Trump issued a proclamation expanding the Section 232 tariffs on steel and aluminum. Originally, the tariffs only applied to steel and aluminum inputs – products such as aluminum wire or steel pipes – that are used in the production of final goods. The new tariffs were expanded to cover related goods, e.g. nails, that are mostly (but not wholly) made of steel or aluminum. This action is expected to increase consumer costs by roughly $158 million per year.


    Table 1 shows the approximate value of imports subject to tariffs. Without accounting for tariff exclusions granted at the request of U.S. businesses, the president’s remaining tariffs apply to approximately $396 billion of imports, increasing annual consumer costs by $77.9 billion annually.

    Tom Steyer set to miss Nevada debate - POLITICO

    2020 Democrat Tom Steyer: Trump Won Wednesday's Debate

    Tom Steyer fell short of the Democratic National Committees threshold for the debate Wednesday night by failing to hit 10 percent in four approved polls or winning a delegate out of Iowa or New Hampshire, according to Politico.
    However, the billionaire declared Trump the winner of the debate in an appearance Thursday morning on CNN.
    “I saw the person who won the debate last night whose name is Donald Trump. That’s the first thing I’d say,” Steyer said.
    “Because I saw so much bickering between Democratic candidates, tearing each other down and going after each other and forgetting the fact that what really counts is beating Donald Trump in November of 2020.

    Now for some historical facts on Presidential pardons.

    Number of Pardons by President: Who Granted the Most?

    Re: Just how Crazy is Donald Trump!

    Trump’s latest pardons show how quickly he’s normalizing corruption
    They’re aimed at the very sorts of obstruction of justice and financial crimes he’s been implicated in.

    The notion that arguably the most personally corrupt president in American history has good-faith concerns about corruption has always been absurd. But whatever shred of plausibility it had was dealt a death blow on Tuesday when President Donald Trump pardoned or commuted the sentences of a veritable who’s who of corrupt public figures.


    Trump commuted the sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D), who was convicted of fraud and conspiracy charges related to his efforts to basically sell a US Senate seat. He pardoned former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who pleaded guilty to tax fraud and lying to investigators. He pardoned billionaire financier Michael Milken, who pleaded guilty to insider trading. He commuted the sentence of Judith Negron, who, according to the Justice Department, “masterminded one of the largest fraud schemes ever prosecuted by the Medicare Fraud Strike Force.” Also receiving a pardon was former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr., who was convicted of failing to report a bribe.


    Those names highlighted the list of 11 people who were suddenly granted pardons or commutations. Each of them, with the exception of two women whose sentences for drug-related crimes were commuted, were implicated in corrupt dealings.

    He CAN'T give anything than snide remarks, copy n paste from unknown sources, and hardly EVER gives a link to the article.. and when you ask for it the reply is.. " not much of a tech if you can't google" but clearly I can if you notice I give links.. and follow up GOOGLE searches for linked info. Like EVERYONE running for the DIM nomination, He's got nothing but a swelled impression of his abilities.
    He will not change. People like that, I have sympathy for because they feel they know it all but really are so snowed by the left they can't comprehend how really wrong their logic is... prime example of that is @AOC.
