In other news, Chief Justice John Roberts swore in Senators for Trump's impeachment trial this morning. Republican Senators will promptly violate the oath they just took to "do impartial justice."

Meanwhile, EU trade commissioner Phil Hogan says Trump is only imposing tariffs on European goods because he thinks it will help him get reelected.

Finally, the Trump regime has finalized rules to make it harder to sue corporations for labor violations.

(Reuters) - The Trump administration has made it harder for employees of fast-food restaurants or other big franchises to sue corporations when individual franchise owners violate wage laws, a step that was a top priority for business groups.

The U.S. Department of Labor on Sunday issued a rule that will make it more difficult to prove companies are liable for wage law violations of their contractors or franchisees. The rule takes effect in March, and should help franchisors who have been sued by workers in recent years for wage-law violations by franchisees.

Very populist!
