#UPDATE: Trump announced he was withdrawing troops from Syria, on the same day that the Treasury Dept announced they were lifting sanctions off of Oleg Deripaska's companies.

We can be pretty sure BOTH were discussed in Helsinki.

#BREAKING: “Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations w/Putin, including...taking possession of his interpreter’s notes and instructing him not to discuss what had transpired w/other officials”

#REDFLAG: "U.S. officials said there is NO DETAILED RECORD, even in classified files, of Trump's face-to-face interactions with Putin at FIVE locations over the past two years. Such a gap would be unusual in any presidency..."

#REDALERT: Treasury Dept. to LIFT SANCTIONS on Oleg Deripaska's companies.

Treasury's OFAC has notified Congress it intends to terminate sanctions on Deripaska's companies — the oligarch close to Putin w/ ties to Manafort and the Mueller Investigation.

#REDFLAG: As predicted earlier in this thread...

Deripaska's companies only qualified for sanctions relief assessment BECAUSE Deripaska "stepped down."

But OBVIOUSLY Deripaska installed board members that reported directly to him.

So why lift sanctions?
#FLAG: The answer to that question is Treasury is being WILLFULLY IGNORANT.

They've directed Deripaska's companies to "undertake significant
restructuring and corporate governance," determine why the moles were installed, and reduce his influence.

#FTR: We should applaud Republicans who break from Trump and their party.

At the same time, we should be aware of their actions, and how, even as recently as today, they contradict their words.

We must encourage them to take those words and turn them into concrete action.
We should welcome Rep. Hurd's words and encourage matching action.

I've feared we wouldn't see Republicans like Sen. Edward Brooke — the first (of many that followed) to break w/ the GOP and call for Nixon's resignation.

I hope those fears are unfounded.

@SenJohnThune is "not sure what this accomplishes."

Trump and Putin met alone for 2 hours. Russia is already saying they're eager to act on agreements made...


The Translator must be brought before Congress. What was agreed upon? What was discussed?

We don't know what deals were struck, but Russia does...

The Russian Military claims they're "ready for practical implementation of the agreements reached between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump..."…
