Today, 180 days after the ‘H.R.3364 – Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act’, an act where the United States Government could sanction Russia, Iran and other countries, that the United States have less favorable relationship with. This was a reaction by the Congress, that got unanimously support in both the House of Representatives and in the Senate. On the 25th July 2017, the House of Representatives voted for it 419 for it and 3 against it. Two days later on the 27th July 2017, the Senate voted, 98 for it and 2 against it. Therefore, of the lawmakers in the United States. They was all for it, in the sense of protecting the Republic from foreign powers and sanctioning them for interfering.
Clearly, the White House and the Donald Trump Administration see it otherwise. Since they are using part of the law to their advantage. So they don’t have to enact or add sanctions on Russia. It is weird, but they are writing a waiver by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson who wrote to Chairman of Foreign Affairs Committee in the House of Representative Edward R. Royce this on the 29th January 2018:
“The guidance established a multi-factor approach to determining what constituted a “significant” transaction that includes, but is not limited to, the significance of the transaction to U.S. national security and foreign policy interests, including its relation to cyber misconduct; the nature and magnitude of the transaction; and the relation and significance of the transaction to Russia’s defence and intelligence sectors more generally” (…) “We engaged in extensive consultations and “deep dives” with the relevant country desks at the Department of State and the Department of Defense to promulgate a comprehensive approach to implementing the legislation, identify opportunities and challenges for implementation in each affected relationship, and develop engagement approaches integrated with the entire range of bilateral priorities at stake. We extensively engaged the private sector, bot via in-person meetings and by responding to the many inquires received through our public web address, to promote compliance and identify private sector challenges” (Rex Tillerson waiver to Edward R. Royce on H.R. 3364).
We can wonder what sort of Bilateral Priorities means, as this is politician lingo, to say things of importance without specifying. If this is ExxonMobile Contracts to extract petroleum together with GazProm, who knows. If there are other initial priorities that we don’t know about. The DoD and DoS are using one by sentence to not add sanctions on Russia, and it can make any thinking man wonder:
This is taken from Sec. 231:
“(1) a written determination that the waiver—
(A) is in the vital national security interests of the
“(c) DELAY OF IMPOSITION OF SANCTIONS.—The President may delay the imposition of sanctions under subsection (a) with respect to a person if the President certifies to the appropriate congressional committees, not less frequently than every 180 days while the delay is in effect, that the person is substantially reducing the number of significant transactions described in subsection (a) in which that person engages” (H.R. 3364) .
We can wonder what vital national security interests that the President Trump and Secretary Tillerson are seeing within Russia. Is the Pee-Pee tape with hookers, that the Kremlin might have? Is it possible hacked documents from the Trump Campaign. Is the possible ties to Russian Mobs and Russian Laundromat for fueling black-market monies and white-wash them for Russian Oligarchs through the Trump Organization? Is the help of Russian agents and operatives during the 2015 and 2016 Campaigns before the election victory of President Trump?
That is just simple questions we are awaiting answers on and hoping the Special Counsel Robert Mueller can answer these and find the evidence of the involvement with Russian’s in the Elections in 2016. All of the connections between the Russians and Trump. That has been uncovered with time, and more and more questions have been arisen. They will not become smaller while the investigations linger and the knowledge of the collusion from Russian operatives within the United States Presidential Election, the in-action from the current administration is saying more than words.
That the Trump Administration who has enough problematic sources, enough trying to fire anyone who investigate into the Russian Collusion, fires anyone and questions the intelligence organizations who has warned of the Russian interference. Are still being silenced. Just like former FBI Director James Comey. Also, now FDI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. The firing of Attorney General Sally Yates. And all the former who was Attorney General of Southern New York Phreet Bharara, who was also fired by Trump. Anyone he can get haul of will he fire or make it an easy with. We can just await Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who haven’t been loyal enough to Trump (in his deluded mind) and also Deputy General Rod Rosenstein, who got Special Counsel Mueller to start investigations into his affairs. We just know there will be more men to block and silence, so that people will not know the ugly truth between the Trump Organization, Trump Campaign and Russian interference. Which is evident, as the meetings, documentation and the help that is going-on until this day.
And it is not easy to escape anymore as the net is circling around the White House. With the plea deal made with Michael Flynn. The indictments of former Campaign Manager Paul Manafort and aide Richard Gates. Together with the George Papadopoulos a former campaign aide who has also told his stories to investigation. For whatever bread-crumbs these gentlemen are leaving behind, as well as the interviews and subpoena’s that the Grand Jury is delivered can clearly indict more people inside the White House. This sort of allegations and also counts who has been charged with is damning. It isn’t a civil suit, it is serious tampering of the state as agents of a foreign power. That is not something that should be taken lightly.
Therefore, that the Trump Administration isn’t answering or adding any sanctions to the Russians after 180 days, only delivering a kitty cat report of possible subjects and close aides of Putin. Shows that Trump is afraid of the consequences of adding on the already Russian sanctions made by the Obama Administration. This after all intelligence organizations are saying that the Russian did interfere and no question of a doubt. It’s like the Trump administration thinks people are stupid and ignorant. Many are because they are looking at Fox News, believing what nonsense they are saying as truth.
That is why President Trump and Tillerson is off the chain, showing more loyalty to Kremlin, than to Congress. They are showing more solidarity with Russians, than with Americans. They are actually pushing for less interference from the Americans towards Russians. It is backwards…
I still wonder, what “bilateral priorities” did Tillerson have in mind? Are they what we think they are or is it something else. Since it isn’t like people in Detroit are lining up to Russian motorcars or power-tools! How often has you seen Lada on the streets of New York? That is what you should wonder about. Because this doesn’t make slightest sense, as all of the clues that isn’t connected yet, but hopefully pieced together by Mueller. So he can report with evidence and transactions done between Trump and Russians. Peace.
