I agree, just ironic that nike is supposedly concerned with social justice issues but never addresses the negative cultural issues you describe. I really dont keep up with all this political stuff anymore so I’m not as informed.
It depends on what you think was their rationale! They would have calculated the numbers for sure before they did this as they have a duty to shareholders and you can bet that they aren’t too surprised by the uptick in sales!
I am fine with this as a protest and I am not offended. If he were burning the flag or something that would be a different matter.
He hasn’t exactly been hard on them. You need to seperate the personal and the political. He had to do something in response to the Novichok poisoning in the UK but ejecting a bunch of diplomats and then allowing a bunch of others straight back in isn’t exactly tough! What he hasn’t really done is put them under any big financial pressure. So long as he doesn’t do that in a big way then Putin and co will keep the money and deals flowing to him personally.
Didnt know that was coming out.
…i dont have enough evidence, personally for the collusion with trump. I think he might have known about it, the meeting, but trump jr should probably face charges. That can be considered conspiracy to (fill in the blank here).
Its like if you plan to kill someone…the weapon, the list etc but dont go through with it and get caught…youre still in deep trouble.
Im still waiting to see everything Mueller has on it.
I suspect this book might give many of us a huge insight into what Mueller has and I am pretty sure that the case for conspiracy/collusion will be pretty convincing. The Author has seen much of the same stuff I have and much much more add to the fact he is a criminal attorney it should be really interesting!!
It will be interesting to see where this leads to. I would have thought that Manafort would have to give up something pretty big in order to get a plea deal as he is bang to rights on so many fronts he could easily spend the rest of his life in jail. So will it be Trump himself or someone else like Jnr or Bannon?
The nonsense from Giuliani is so funny because he must know that Mueller is absolutely going to make sure that any admission of guilt by anyone making a plea deal will absolutely not include anything about Trump until he is ready to present his entire case. So him saying look it has nothing to do with Trump is just a joke!!
No limitations on the cooperation and even with that a minimum recommend 17.5 years in jail. His only hope now will be to offer everything he has got in the chance he might be able to get a further reduction otherwise he won’t see the light of day before his mid-80’s if he lives that long!!!
A couple of other things to note one being that with the $46M that the federal government will get from Manafort as a result of the guilty plea they have now made a significant profit over the $8M spent on the investigation
Also it will be interesting to see who from the other cooperating witnesses will be falling over themselves to offer up the goods on Trump now as the race is on to get the biggest sentence reduction. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get the best deal!!
