Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 11, 2017

Leading senators from both parties, Maryland Democrat Ben Cardin and Arizona Republican John McCain criticized the Trump administration Wednesday for not meeting a deadline for implementing new sanctions on Russia's defense and intelligence sectors. "The delay calls into question the Trump administration's commitment to the sanctions bill which was signed into law more than two months ago, following months of public debate and negotiations in Congress," they said in a statement. "In addition to the administration's lack of responsiveness on this deadline, there does not appear to be a significant diplomatic effort to engage our allies in Europe and lead an effort to increase pressure on Moscow," they added. President Donald Trump was openly displeased with the tougher sanctions legislation, and argued that Congress was impinging on his executive powers, though he signed them into law. The question hanging in the Senate now is whether they'll actually be implemented.

Trump's disrespect for the law imposing sanctions on Russia is just one of many obviously observable indicators that he is more than likely a Russian Asset.

This is not likely to be easily brushed off by the House and Senate.

Constitutional crisis, anyone?

Why fabricate? When the right talks about fake news, this is the type of garbage they're talking about.

How does this help liberals get elected to office?

Do they really pay you for this nonsense - THIS is their plan??

LOL! That's great. You don't even realize that everything you just wrote is really about righties.
Let me explain this for you. "Goldy tape"=satire to ridicule and point out the hypocrisy of Conman Donnie's supporters after they spent a decade crying about a non-existent "Whitey tape".
Tillerson has a phrase to describe such replies.

"The question hanging in the Senate now is whether they'll actually be implemented."

My guess is that Congress sees it as "we did our job" to make it look good and nothing will be done ensure they ever are implemented.

They have the perfect out in blaming His Orange Highness for not implementing the law while simultaneously not holding his tiny feet to the fire for not doing so.

Question is, does that set up a route to removal with plausible deniability with the base?

The dumb senators will not dare to oppose him, even if he is blunt in not doing the sanctions to the enemy. He does not want democracy, just want to be a ruler like Putin.

Hows that approval rating doing? Democrats have gained 15-20 points in Red areas across the country in special elections. GOP strategists, experts unlike you, are terrified right now and have no problem expressing it.

God knows he'll prolly need a full eight years to turn the USA into Haiti. But he's doing a damn fine job of it in a mere 10 months.

Sheep, you are a fool. Not just foolish. A fool. Be very proud of yerself.
