Would be nice if Congress added sanctions over Putin's offering of $100,000 per American in Afghanis


?s=21

The Kremlin is not happy with the latest UK sanctions against Russian individuals and promises a response. Would be nice if Congress added sanctions over Putin's offering of $100,000 per American in Afghanistan. Congress needs to do their job and punish Russia

I will be tweeting about this daily until this is addressed. The media moved on but I won't. We cannot let Russia go unpunished. If they do it will result in our troops being in greater danger around the world

UK to impose sanctions alone for first time:

1. By trump and republicans doing nothing to putin

Shows their being complicit allowing something like this to happen , and putting Americans in danger. Shows trump and some republicans are protecting putin instead of our Service members now. trump is in putins pocket, and looks like some republicans are too now.

2. I hadn't heard the dollar figure. That ought to be thrown in cheetolini's face

Donny-do-nothing doesn’t seem to realize that all the wars he loves so much have always been, at least on paper, fought with allies. He’d done everything to alienate our allies. Who would stand with us now if something major came up?

3. Dems could keep this in the news cycle,

if they wrote a bill, even just a bill condemning Putin without sanctions, but with sanctions would be better.

5. It is crazy

that this is going on and Trump knows how to use distractions and use the media. they fall for it every-time. We need some Mark Meadows and Gatz and Jordan's in the party to get in front the camera like they would if this was Obama or Clinton or any Democrat.

6. The media is accepting the stalemate.

The administration's answers to the many questions this raises are either misleading, flatly false or not given at all. Taken in sum, the answers don't add up. How does an intelligence assessment make it to the daily briefing book and to British allies but not to the president? The claim that Trump didn't know is damning whether true or false.

The situation calls for the media to keep pressing to flush out the contradictions, not just accept it and go to the weather.
