102. Now, you said, "She waited until after TPA passed, making the TPP a done deal."

TPA is the Congressional oversight rules and guidelines for negotiation from Congress authorizing the president to finalize the proposed trade deal.

As a member of Obama's cabinet who promoted aspects of this trade deal as Secretary of State - prior to Congressional approval - Hillary basically recused herself from a position regarding Trade Promotion Authority. An absolutely normal professional courtesy we would expect!

Once Trade Promotion Authority was passed, she could weigh in as someone who understood this trade deal did not meet her standards. The release of the final full text could influence her decision, but so far she hasn't weighed in with a detailed critique.

This is Congress and the Presidents deal now. We'll see if a Republican Congress is going to give Obama and the Democrats another win! Are they clamoring to hear Hillary's opinion other than the one she has given? I think not.

And yet you believe she could stop it if she chose to - and won't. Unbelievable.
