People’s Bank of China has started a crackdown campaign on digital currency in Shanghai and Shenzhen. Since a legal ban on digital currencies trading was introduced in 2017 most of such “exchanges” moved outside mainland China to Japan or Singapore, even EU and US. The most likely reason for a recent crackdown is to cease any operations in digital currencies to prevent capital flight. Capital flight from China had substantially decreased to $22 billion in 2018 vs $675 billion in 2016 and $380 billion in 2017. But capital flight accelerated to $139.

The impeachment inquiry by Democratic majority in the U.S. House of Representative went as an early bird presidential campaign in 2020. Democratic representatives are starving for something that might look like a personal vendetta to an alien President Donald Trump. This inquiry could be considered as a culmination of political confrontation between traditional American political mode and a new assertive way of ruling the country. Discouraging openness of Trump concerning impeachment hearings is in his favor.
