They were intended to ensure a free and open internet, give consumers equal access to web content and prevent broadband service providers from favoring their own content." "Some consumer groups fear that without the rules, Internet providers could begin charging some websites or services more to reach their customers...they also say Internet providers could artificially speed up services they own or have special relationships with, to the detriment of start-ups and small businesses." Comments about the process submitted to the FCC have been questionable as well.  An FCC spokesperson noted that "7.5 million comments filed in favor of the regulations that appeared to come from 45,000 distinct email addresses, 'all generated by a single fake e-mail generator website.' Some 400,000 comments backing the rules, he said, appeared to originate from a mailing address based in Russia."

On the same day that Trump Jr. received the first message from WikiLeaks, he emailed other senior officials with the Trump campaign, including Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Brad Parscale, and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, telling them WikiLeaks had made contact. Kushner then forwarded the email to campaign communications staffer Hope Hicks. At no point during the 10-month correspondence does Trump Jr. rebuff WikiLeaks, which had published stolen documents and was already observed to be releasing information that benefited Russian interests.

Trump Jr's interactions with Wikileaks indicate violations of federal campaign finance rules, which "disallows contributions, donations, or 'anything of value' provided by a foreign national to sway an election. It also bars a campaign from offering 'substantial assistance' to a foreign national engaged in spending on American races"  (Wikileaks is a foreign based company).

"The spill in Marshall County was the third along the Keystone route in under 10 years, a concern to state regulators since the pipeline’s lifespan is up to 100 years." "Before constructing the pipeline, TransCanada provided a spill risk assessment to regulators that estimated the chance of a leak of more than 50 barrels to be 'not more than once every seven to 11 years over the entire length of the pipeline in the United States,' according to its South Dakota operating permit."

The original agreement eased trade regulations and limits tariffs between all member countries.  It notably excluded China and India and included the United States, leaving the U.S. in the driver’s seat of trade in this region (simply from the volume of goods consumed and produced). On November 11, 2017 the remaining 11 countries announced preliminary plans to move forward with an agreement without the United States.  The details of the revised plan have not been confirmed or made public, and "the revisions required for the 11 remaining TPP countries to continue talks required a difficult balance between high standards and pragmatism, said Japanese Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi." For each of the countries included, the agreement "will eliminate over 95 per cent of their tariffs." "The members of the CPTPP represent 494 million people, with a combined GDP of US$10.2 trillion, or 13.6% of global GDP."
