Yawn.

Executive Order.

A deal's a deal, right? Vlad got him elected, so it's only fair that Don comes through on his end.

“I’m absolutely opposed to lifting sanctions on the Russians,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Sunday. “If anything, we ought to be looking at increasing them.”

Seems, they really have solid bone behind their eyes.

“Well, we’ll wait and see. I hope the president will follow our advice and not be lifting the sanctions on the Russians.”

Mitch was born both chinless and spineless. He's an a-principled Republican; he'll do what his highest bidders tell him to do. Will it be the Koch brothers? Wall Street? Russian oligarchs?

Russian expressions often don't translate well to English. Use simple language like BurningBush.

Yawn.

No need for any of those silly elected legislators in Congress, eh?

Then no need for us either.

Why not have good relations with Russia?

@PTownsend "Russian expressions often don't translate well to English. Use simple language like BurningBush."

Sure those expressions are fully intelligible for you.

Because dictator Putin is not to be trusted.

If messing with Western elections isn't enough for ya then grab a Make America Great hat and scream over anyone disagreeing with you.

Do people still believe that Russia messed with USA elections ? Proof that they didn't came out long ago. Whoo !, Putin can't be trusted? He was KGB once, wow he must be bad. Never mind anyone that was in the CIA or the Mi5.

Even trump has admitted the Russians did it. So where did you see this proof?

Anybody else attribute to the fact that Trump's wife is from Slovenia and Slovenia has been having good relations with Russia. So he wants to be buddy-buddy with Russia.

Of course they do. The power of the Petrodollar compels them.

Even trump has admitted the Russians did it.

It's possible he said this to quell the issue. Seemed to have worked either way. Besides, with all the election and leadership tampering the US has done over the last 65 years, currently Ukraine, Libya and Syria, anyone whining about this is just showing their lack of historical perspective or acting like a 2 year old who's had their Happy Meal toy taken away.
