Phase 1 signing ceremony. Articles of Impeachment sent from the House to the Senate. And an exclusive TV interview from Lev Parnas, an associate of Rudy Giuliani, who has been charged by the US Attorney from the Southern District of New York. What a day! On the US-China trade front – this is a terrible deal and one that basically takes us back to where we were two years ago before this whole thing started. Most of the goods and services that may be purchased by the Chinese are to take place in 2021 not 2020. Most of the goods that China may purchase are goods that they need anyway – pork, soybeans, and energy. The Chinese can remove their tariffs on US goods at their leisure – not on an agreed upon timetable. Some US tariffs will remain in place on Chinese goods and services. Thus keeping prices artificially high and continues the trend of uncertainty. There is an escape clause that basically states that if one party believes that the other is acting in bad faith, that the agreement can be severed. China also stated that they will make their determination to purchase goods and services based on market forces – i.e. prices, not because of a trade deal. In short, this is a pathetic deal – if we can even call it a deal. And don’t forget the numerous amount of farmers who have filed for bankruptcy during this process. And don’t forget the tens of billions of US dollars, from the taxpayers that went to bail-out farmers, especially large corporate farms.
An historic day for the United States of America as the Articles of Impeachment have been formally sent from the House to the Senate. The trial is expected to start next week and will likely last for at least a couple of weeks. We imagine, if it is an open, fair, and transparent trial that it will last longer. Time will tell. All we want is the truth to be known and for justice to be served. Regardless of who is implicated and charged. Put the politics aside.
Lastly, Lev Parnas gave an exclusive interview to Rachel Maddow of MSNBC, part 1 aired this evening and part 2 is scheduled for tomorrow evening. Much of what was stated raises more questions than it does provides answers. However, some of the answers appeared credible and can be corroborated with documentation. Some answers can be reasonably presumed to be correct, however, further evidence is needed. Further, some answers were speculative in nature and they also require further investigation and corroboration – either documentation and/or personal testimony of other individuals. One of the key themes as outlined by Parnas is contradicting the President and stating that Donald Trump was fully aware as to what Parnas, Giuliani, and others were doing in Ukraine. Recall that Parnas has also submitted documents to the House and those documents will now be a part of the official record with respect to the impeachment inquiry. Also, do consider the motive of Parnas when it comes to his statements – remain skeptical and ask tough questions and demand the truth and further investigations. This is far from over and there are many questions that need to be asked and answered. And many of them need to be asked of and answered by the President’s Men.
