Trump’s sanctions against #Turkey result largely from Erdogan’s purchase of #S400 from #Russia. Interestingly #India too signed a deal worth $5.4 billion with Russia for S-400 in 2015. If US decide to sanction India, Reliance Defense may be destroyed.…
Purchases from #Russia attract US #sanctions under the #CAATSA Act.

The US can issue waivers but only on a transaction-to-transaction basis.

The US still has NOT given #India a waiver on this #S400 deal despite requests.…
Guess who is the main offset partner for the #S400 deal between #India & #Russia?

Yup - it’s Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defense.

Ambani signed a contract with Russia’s Almaz-Antey which makes S-400 potentially worth $6bn.…

1. Clash in Shera, reconnaissance flights in Shehba…
2. Turkey had the perfect opportunity to address its ethnic cleansing and support for terrorists in Afrin. These actions constitute violations of US criminal law against genocide and terrorism. Turkey has made its bed. Now it has to sleep in it.
3. If @POTUS does not impose the #CAATSA sanctions, Congress must take action and impose them and remove from the Trump Istanbul building owner the power to allow crimes against humanity to go unpunished.

1. In 2014, when I witnessed the brave men and women of the #YPG #YPJ refuse to yield to ISIS though entirely surrounded at Kobane, no supplies, scrounging for ammo & weapons but refusing to quit, I begged the Obama administration to give them support & they did. With a US
2. commitment of air and artillery support plus needed supplies we helped defeat ISIS. The #SDF bore the burden of the battle. They buried their dead and cared for their wounded. And they brought democracy to North and East Syria. Turkey hates them because they represent the
3. 50 year failed Turkish policy of Kurdish Apartheid but more than that they represent the end of the age of patriarchy that has burdened the people of the Mideast and is the foundation of all its failed systems. Women are equal not just in theory but in reality in the NES.

1. @StateDept needs to release intelligence we have connecting Turkish government to #ISIS & Al-#Qaeda & issue Red level departure warning for all US civilians in Turkey. We must face the reality that #Turkey is threatening an imminent attack on our forces to commit more acts of
2 anti-#Christian, #Kurd & #Ezidi genocide and move to capture the #Syrian oil and gas fields we and the #SDF liberated from Turkey's ally ISIS. Now #Iran is coordinating for an attack from Deir EzZor. Enough is enough. Expose Turkey as ISIS.
3. Where are the #CAATSA sanctions? Did Erdogan make a payment to @Trump family related to the Trump Istanbul project @IvankaTrump? @JimInhofe @SenJackReed @RepAdamSmith @SenateGOP @HouseGOP @WHNSC @DefenseIntel

1. Just because #MoscowMitch was able to stop #CAATSA sanctions on his partner-in-crime Oleg Deripaska, it does not mean the money McConnell wants to launder for the Russian mob is not proceeds of a specified unlawful activity. Russian mob is into just about every crime.
2. What do you want to bet that some of #MoscowMitch's racketeering pals' money is going through a NY State supervised financial institution? @NewYorkStateAG should subpoena #MoscowMitch to an investigative grand jury. There's no speech and debate immunity
3. for racketeering related lobbying activity. Right Mitch? FYI on the left is Rikers. Then you go to Sing Sing on the right.

Looks like your army experience may come in handy, for #MoscowMitch. 😎 @SenateGOP @senatemajldr
