Jeff Sessions Reveals Specifics of TPP

Jeff Sessions has defied threats to prosecute those who disclose specifics of the trade agreement. He has revealed content. Others should read the document and speak up. Would Obama order the DOJ to prosecute senators who disclose contents of this odious bill? That heavy-handedness would only serve to doom passage of the TPP forever. I also believe that constitutional questions about the so-called confidentiality of this document would arise.

2. Yep, it almost hurt to post it.

But it seems that senators who actually take the time to read it don't like the smell of it.

The secrecy thing is especially repugnant. Bill Clinton did not hide NAFTA in this way.

5. Maybe. But I feel as though there is a pattern whereby right-wingers get a pass in situations

for which progressives get the book thrown at them.

6. TPP must really stink for Sessions to spill the crapola.

Truthout does the job Corporate McPravda can't touch: telling the TRUTH.
