Trump attacks, just like we knew he would
Trumps has been exonerated – now’s the time for the revenge.
Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani told Fox News an investigation should be launched into how the investigation began.
The Trump campaign on Monday called on various TV producers to challenge their guests’ “outlandish, false” accusations about alleged collusion between Trump’s associates and Russia now that the claim has “proven to be false.”
Tim Murtaugh, the director of communications for Trump’s campaign, made the request in an email just a day after Attorney General William Barr said that the special counsel investigation did not uncover evidence to conclude the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government to influence the 2016 election. The Trump campaign confirmed the email’s authenticity to The Hill.
The collusion story has been collapsing for a while. This is about the Trump Tower meeting – it exposes the extent of the conspiracy.
We are not well served by our media:

But the US media even worse:

This article has aged badly
In light of last weeks’ revelations that the China coal dispute may be related to a speech by Christopher Pyne in January, this article from February is deeply, deeply troubling ($$$). How could supposed China ‘experts’ could read the scenario so badly? Especially Peter Drysdale who has been front and centre of ANU’s China work for decades.
China has no strategic interest in weaponising world trade
Delays in clearing Australian coal imports through Dalian and northern Chinese ports over the past week set off alarms in Australia about risks to the massive thermal coal and resource trade relationship with China. The Australian dollar took a hit. Trade Minister Simon Birmingham and Australian officials tried to quell precipitate speculation that connected these events to Australian actions that have recently touched on Chinese economic and political interests.
China has stopped all new purchases of Canadian canola seeds in what some see as retaliation for Canada’s arrest of a top executive of Chinese tech giant Huawei.
The Canola Council of Canada said late Thursday exporters are reporting Chinese importers are unwilling to purchase the seeds at this time.
In 2018, China bought about 40 percent of Canada’s canola exports for a total of $2.1 billion.
Guy Saint-Jacques, a former Canadian ambassador to China, said Canada’s government now needs to retaliate and should expel any Chinese athletes training in Canada for the Beijing Winter Olympic Games in 2022.
“We are going to lose billions in dollars in trade and it’s time to show our displeasure,” Saint-Jacques said
