REPORT: TRUMP TO CANCEL NEW SANCTIONS AGAINST RUSSIA AFTER NIKKI HALEY REPORTED THEM

Hahahaha, Trump is a Russian agent.

This in from The Hill.

President Trump reportedly put a stop to plans to impose additional sanctions on Russia for its alleged role in a recent suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria because he was not yet comfortable with putting the penalties in place.

The Washington Post reported that Trump spoke with his national security advisers on Sunday after U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that additional sanctions were forthcoming.

While additional economic sanctions were under consideration, the president had not given the approval to put them in place, the newspaper reported. Instead, the White House is in a “holding pattern,” and Trump will likely levy further sanctions only if Russia is involved in another event that threatens U.S. interests.

The White House on Monday morning walked back Haley’s comments, saying the administration is “considering additional sanctions on Russia and a decision will be made in the near future.”

On “Face the Nation,” Haley said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin would announce additional economic sanctions on Russia on Monday. She said the sanctions would target “any sort of companies related to [Syrian President Bashar] Assad and chemical weapons use.”

This is a major beat down in the face of Nikki Haley, who just brazenly and boldly said new sanctions would be affixed to the mongrel nation of Russia. As a result, my RUSS is getting bullet holed to the face and Russian stocks are gapping higher.

In other news, Gen. Jack Keane, member of the GD board, said the Syrian strikes were weak and we should not be deterred by a 2nd rate power, called Russia, meddling in our affairs. He thinks we should completely wipe out Assad’s military capability and even strike Russian positions. LOL.

        Hannity says Cohen is not his lawyer but Cohen says Hannity is his client.

          It’s OK, their conversations “dealt almost exclusively about real estate.”

          You can’t make this shit up.

            Cohen to Hannity: “I can get you a good deal *wink, wink* on prime New York real estate if you throw Jeb under the bus and perform some under the table favors for my client, such as never calling him out on any bullsit.”

            Hannity: “You had me at ‘Hello'”

      Hannity is still processing her emails, since he’s firmly behind Trump:

      Hard to do since the Fire & Fury dude claimed that she fucked Dennis Dennison, who probably didn’t sign them NDA between them either.

      But, from what I understand, Trump only fucks minorities figuratively and not literally.

    What a farce. The fucking guy was not yet comfortable with putting the penalties in place; but bombing Syria for no reason whatsoever, or at least before the facts are known, must’ve been very kosher for him.

      Don’t need facts when the alternative facts are better, darling.

      To be fair, the Kremlin has been giving him very mixed signals on exactly when to resume sucking Putin’s dick.

    I guess it’s better to kill a few Syrians rather than risk gas imports to Europe.

      Mueller should do a full investigation on all Cohen’s clients. I bet one of them has been to Russia.

    So my understanding is that any evidence they uncover form Cohen’s files about defending against a crime his client has already comitted is off-limits based on client-attorney privelige. However, any evidence of collusion to commit a future (relative to the time of the attorny-client discussion) crime is more meat for the FBI to chew on.

    I don’t think the FBI is going to go hungry.

    To further his infinite-dimension Chess game, I expect Trump to release his taped conversations soon. Or wait, Cohen already did that.

    Putin owes his landslide election victory to Donald Trump. Anybody see what is going on? Yin and yang and work, dear readers.
