All talk and boll*x seeing as you are importing Russian LPG. Sanctions are for everyone else to suffer from EXCEPT the US.

Claimed as Breaking News on the BeeB

The director of the CIA expects that Russia will target the US mid-term elections later this year.
Mike Pompeo told the BBC there had been no significant diminishing of Russian attempts at subversion in Europe and the US.
He also said North Korea may have the ability to strike the US with nuclear missiles "in a handful of months".
The US intelligence community has said that it believes Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
Mr Pompeo, who briefs the president most mornings, dismissed as "drivel" recent claims that US President Donald Trump was not up to the job.
<snip>

Mr Trump has been dismissive of claims of Russian interference in sharp contrast to the conclusions of the US intelligence community. So does the CIA director have to walk a fine line?
"I don't do fine lines. I do the truth," he responds. "We deliver nearly every day personally to the president the most exquisite truth that we know from the CIA."
Mr Pompeo briefs Mr Trump most days when they are both in Washington DC. The briefing covers current events and strategic issues.
Ahead of visits abroad or meetings with foreign leaders, the briefings aim to provide the president with what is described as "informational advantage".
"He is very focused in the sense that he is curious about the facts that we present. He is curious in the sense he wants to understand why we believe them."

So: Congress passes, nearly unanimously, legislation to impose new sanctions on Russia. Trump declines to do so.

What does congress do? Nothing?

There is no Russian interference in USA elections. Russia is currently our ally in the war against Al-Qaeda (rebranded as ISIS) in Syria being supplied by Mike Pompeo and the CIA. You guys need to get real news. Qanon is bigger than John the Babtist was when he was doing the babtism thing and President Trump is walking on water. Our biggest threat to our nation and the world is the Uranium proliferation enterprise being run by criminals in the NNSA and the FBI.

Even if that were all true, which it isn't, the FACT is congress voted nearly unanimously to impose more sanctions on Russia and Trump has declined to do so. How do you justify that?

Actually, the Democrats had to get the Russians to hack Trump when the head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz's Awan brothers and Pakistani ISI weren't smart enough to do it with the CIA hacking tools and passwords President Obama gave them... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Xk8K4vjVSw
