Sabotage: Justice Dept. had Chinese exec arrested without telling POTUS Trump as he dined with Xi

(National SentinelTreasonous: The Deep State continues to work against POTUS Donald Trump in every way possible, up to and including bringing the U.S. and China to the brink of a hot war.

Earlier this week, POTUS Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping dined together at the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The primary subject: Trade.

Following the dinner, both sides announced some progress. The U.S. and Chinese governments would suspend tariff regimes for 90 days while trade negotiators from both countries attempted to work out a more permanent compromise.

Making trade fairer between the U.S. and China is a central tenet of POTUS Trump’s economic agenda and a major part of his “MAGA” plan. Without question, there needs to be a better balance: On Thursday, the Commerce Department announced that the U.S. trade deficit has grown to a near-monthly record of about $55.5 billion in October, the highest since 2008. And most of that was with China.

Following the dinner/meeting, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce said that it was “very successful,” adding, “we have confidence in the implementation” of what was agreed upon.




But then diplomatic disaster struck.

Shortly after the dinner meeting, news broke that Canadian authorities had arrested Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of mega-Chinese telecom Huawei, the largest in the world. And they picked her up at the request of the U.S. Justice Department. And now Canada is extraditing her to the United States.

Fox Business reported on the details surrounding the arrest:

The 46-year-old daughter of the company’s founder was detained Wednesday in Vancouver as she was changing planes. She faces extradition to the United States on unspecified charges.

She was arrested as part of a U.S. investigation into an alleged scheme by Huawei to use the global banking system to avoid American sanctions against Iran, Reuters reported Thursday. U.S. officials also have been looking into the company’s use of HSBC for possible illegal dealings involving Iran.

Why Meng personally was arrested isn’t clear, though other reports said she serves as the company’s chief financial officer.

But whatever the reason, it appears that Meng was actually arrested while POTUS Trump and Xi were having dinner.

On Thursday, Peter Navarro, assistant to the president on trade policy, spoke with Fox Business‘ Trish Regan on her new show Primetime. He told her that the Justice Department did not inform POTUS Trump the arrest was coming.

Watch:

The DoJ had to know that the arrest was going to be extremely disruptive diplomatically speaking — and it has been. The Chinese government, through state-run media, have likened the arrest to a “declaration of war.

This arrest seems timed to permanently derail any effort by POTUS Trump to favorably alter the trade imbalance between the U.S. and China, the world’s two biggest economies. If that happens, the Justice Department literally just cost the U.S. economy and American workers trillions of dollars in potential earnings.

And for no reason other than to undermine a president the Deep State despises.

    If Whitaker didn’t approve the arrest, someone probably overstepped their authority. If it was under Whitaker’s authority, he should be fired immediately. And if it was Rosenstein, what better reason to fire him? Someone’s got to be held accountable.

  2. It seems to me that it should be pretty simple to identify the ba$tards responsible for this, and to fire and publicly humiliate them ( if unable, technically, to arrest, charge, prosecute, convict, fine & imprison them ) thereby effectively screwing their b@lls to the wall, for all of their fellow comrades-in-arms to see. Ironically, if that would happen ( i.e., merely the identification, firing, & public humiliation, if that’s all that’s available as a remedy ) then this event would actually become extremely beneficial to Trump’s goals in this current round of negotiations, because the Chinese Officials would witness Trump actually taking swift & effective action ( i.e., not just “words of apology” ) on THEIR behalf — to stick up for them, even to the extent of exacting punishment & vengeance “upon his own people.” I think that would be very persuasive, in convincing them that he really is sincere, and dedicated to making the U.S. – China economize relationship a great one.

    Having said that, I’m still not about to send a “Thank-You Note” to the a$$holes in the Justice Dept. who ARE responsible for this.

  3. A similar diplomatic embarrassment was dealt our President just before his meeting with Putin. DEon’t tell me these are not meant to undermine his administration. Either that or we run the dumbest DOJ ever envisioned. Look for Rosenstein’s, who should have been fired ages ago, hand in this one, too.

  4. if no one is fired or seriously reprimanded,…..It’s now trump’s fault.
    I’m starting to lose patience with him laying down all the time,…..GET THE WHIP OUT!

  5. FIRED !!!!
    IF NO ONE IS FIRED IT’S TRUMPS FAULT AND INVITES MORE.

  6. To me this is an abuse of power of the DOJ just to embarrass our president. I certainly feel this is personal and am starting to believe there is a bigger issue with people who make money off the economy being bad and do not want the economy good. Scary people in the USA now who who actually say the word kingdom instead of the United States.
