Not Wise, Not Honest

A North Korean cargo tanker impounded by Indonesia has been given to the U.S. after the ship was found to be in violation of U.S. Sanctions. The best part about the Trump presidency is all the winning.

Wise Honest, a 17,061-ton carrier ship and one of North Korea’s largest bulk vessels, was awarded to the United States, the U.S. Justice Department said.

The ship was intercepted by Indonesian authorities in April 2018. On inspection, the vessel was found to contain North Korean coal, which the supply, transfer and sale of is prohibited under U.N. Security Council sanctions, the United States said.

According to a complaint filed by federal prosecutors in May, from at least November 2016 to its detention, the vessel exported North Korean coal to foreign buyers and imported heavy machinery back to the hermetic country. Prosecutors said that those involved in the conspiracy falsified documents to conceal the origins of the ship and its cargo. (H/T – TXNick)

Elizabeth Warren immediately declared if she wins the presidency, the coal will be dumped into the sea before it affects climate change. Warren would do it “for the children.”
