The gang of traitors are now clear – Ryan, Rubio, Lindsey the fairy sprite Graham, and John I stole my elections McCain. All are on board for a bill that would enforce sanctions against Russia which were done by executive order by Obama in response to Russian hacking of our election. Except there is no proof that occurred.
“They’re Dangerous! DANGEROUS!” screamed McCain screaming from a chandelier. Lindsey Graham nodded while forcing a penguin up his ass. Little Marco asked McCain when he would get his naptime and McCain threw an orange at him. “DANGEROUS! WAR GOOD!” screamed McCain. When asked why he abandoned his disabled wife in her time of need he replied “WAR MORE WAR”.
Our country is bankrupt. The warmongers don’t understand this is supposed to be a time of peace. We need to balance our budget and chop ONE TRILLION from our budget and start paying our debt down. Sanctions on Russia are KEY to staying on a war footing and keeping the payola flowing. and they know it.
Graham and McShitStain are the only 2 amnesty traitor republicans left. Of course if Rubio were there in 2007 for the vote he would be on the list as well.
“War!” drooled Lindsey Graham fucking himself up the ass with a pineapple.
The resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn over discussions he had with the Russian ambassador have only heightened the need for Congress to empower itself to monitor the administration’s sanctions approach.
“I’m dismayed that such a step is even necessary,” Schiff said. “These sanctions enjoyed bipartisan support when they were put in place by President Obama, and lifting them without a clear change in Russia’s behavior would be nothing more than an appeasement of Putin’s destabilizing agenda.”
“Not only has Russian behavior not changed,” he added, “it has intensified.”
The legislation has bipartisan support, with the list of co-sponsors including GOP Reps. Tom Rooney (Fla.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) and Mike Turner (Ohio). Although both Rooney and Kinzinger had planned to attend Wednesday’s unveiling, neither showed up.
“Both Mr. Kinzinger and Mr. Rooney said that they were going to be here,” Hoyer said when asked about the absence. “But I knew they had committees, so maybe they’re tied up in committee.”
Hoyer said that he’s also spoken to Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, who has “expressed interest” in the proposal.
Hoyer said he will also soon be reaching out to Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to promote the bill.
“I would hope that he would join us,” Hoyer said.
A companion bill has also been introduced in the Senate, with bipartisan support from Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), John McCain (R-Ariz.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.).
During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” early Wednesday, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said he would back congressional efforts to codify sanctions against Russia, if the president attempts to weaken them.
“If those sanctions were to be watered down, I would, for sure, support codifying them and making sure they don’t get watered down,” Ryan said. “Because I do believe that Russia is a global menace, and their interests are not aligned with our interests.”
