#BREAKING Russia wins again—thanks to Republicans! Senate just killed Democrat-led effort to keep #sanctions on Russian oligarch #Deripaska, @mkraju reports
@mkraju Our EU allies are adding Russians to their sanctions list and Republicans are taking them off. Even @MittRomney caved to the Kremlin today on lifting Deripaska's sanctions. Reporters need to press him hard on this. Is it b/c Romney's helping get a Mormon temple built in Russia??
Oh >> Former Republican Senator David Vitter has been lobbying for #Deripaska’s companies for months. This may explain why so many Republicans voted today for lifting #sanctions. GOP stick together, even when on team Kremlin - CNNPolitics cnn.com/2019/01/16/pol…
Oleg Deripaska has been buying influence in DC for a decade. You'd think after Russia attacked our election, Republicans would shun Putin’s oligarchs. Turns out GOP are so corrupt, they welcome the money & power the Trump-Russia conspiracy gave them. harpers.org/blog/2008/10/o…
JUST NOW: In rebuke to Trump admin, more than 130 Republicans join House Democrats to oppose lifting #sanctions on Putin ally #Deripaska, voting 362-53. Similar measure failed in Senate yesterday, when only 11 Republicans broke ranks to join Democrats in vote to uphold sanctions.
We should all be THIS outraged about Republicans lifting #Deripaska #sanctions: >> Wait, Is Putin Getting Paid During The Trump Shutdown? THE F*CK? - wonkette.com/wait-is-putin-… h/t via @Wonkette h/t @geoff9cow #TrumpRussia
"Just the beginning." Russian TV is ecstatic that Republicans allowed lifting of sanctions on #Deripaska companies. #Sanctions are a powerful tool. But they take time & resolve. Putin continues malign activity b/c he succeeds at buying people off. @GOP has sold US out to #Russia.
