Will any Congressional Republicans pull themselves away from celebrating the nomination of Neil Gorsuch and take note of President Trump’s easing/”I am not easing” of sanctions on Russian intelligence agencies?
If somebody offered me 19 or 19.5 percent of the Russian petrostate and sent it to a Cayman Islands shell company, I might be tempted to do something nice for them. Is that what is happening here? Did President Trump acknowledge it by speaking of finding a “pretext” for lifting sanctions? Hard to be at all sure, but it’s not a question I expected to need to ask.
