Richard Haass: ‘It’s Implicit Quid Pro Quo’ with China and Trump

‘Why doesn’t Congress use its hearing power?’

EXCERPT:

HAASS: “Look. It’s, it’s implicit quid pro quo. My hunch is the Chinese and the Trumps are not stupid enough to make it explicit. Again, the fact that we’re having this conversation that’s going on, it’s one hell of a coincidence, shall we say. Why doesn’t Congress use its hearing power? They could basically investigate this firm. They could investigate what’s going on with the White House. They could compare whether other people are getting trademarks or not.”
