Now it's even worse.

Remember how a couple of years ago, China abducted a bunch of bookstore owners from Hong Kong for selling salacious tomes of gossip about Xi Jinping? They mysteriously disappeared and China attempted to keep up the fiction that they all voluntarily went to China to turn themselves in for unrelated crimes until one of them slipped away from his captors while on "parole" and blew the whole thing wide open. Illegally kidnapping people was very bad PR for China so now they are forcing our government to pass a law so that they can extradite people legally. No need for this cloak and dagger stuff, our police force are now to fork over anyone they ask for with a smile.

This actually freaked out the business community a whole bunch, so the government wrote in several exemptions for financial crimes so that our assorted white-collar tax evaders, money launderers, fraudsters, bribers and cheats can rest assured that they won't be targeted. The hammer will fall squarely on pesky people who mail subversive literature or whose criticism goes too viral online. You know, crimes of thought.

So the crony capitalists are not especially enthusiastic about this state of affairs, but they'll do as they're told and pass the bill. The democrats are trying to filibuster this thing as long as they can through procedural tactics. They have succeeded in creating a good amount of chaos but they will lose eventually.
