On Monday, President Trump again said he would like better ties with Russia, and suggested he was open to easing sanctions in return for Russia doing thinks for the US. This was followed by a flurry of senators rejecting that idea, and demanding even more sanctions.
Lawmakers from both parties say they believe that Congress is united on acting against the “Russian menace,” and will be doing so with a single voice, looking to do far more than the Trump Administration’s own sanctions against Russia, the most recent of which were announced Tuesday.
Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) complained that Trump hadn’t singled out any new “oligarchs” for sanctions since April, suggesting that proves he is accommodating the Russians. He promised more legislation, though Senate leaders say a vote is unlikely to happen until after the mid-term elections.
The Kremlin isn’t seeing the Trump Administration as nearly so accommodating. They responded to Trump’s Monday comments saying they like the idea of better cooperation, but would prefer some ‘concrete action’ by the US instead of just words.

What will satisfy the US Congress, war? As I Unterstand, they have the power to declare war – just forumlate a declaration and put it to a Vote, if that is what they want.
Senators won’t be satisfied until every major American city is a smoking, radio-active ruin.
It appears to be the plan since it’s becoming obvious that the dollar ponzi is collapsing and they want need to introduce a new credit system to the globe.
Menendez is one of the worst “US Senators”, with Ben Carden, McCain and other Zionist darlings who hate Russia and do all they can (egMagnitsky Act) to spread lies and sanctions.
Do these “Senators” never think of the real problems of their nation, which is falling apart while they are determined to destroy the rest of us?
This “Russian Menace” is one of the largest collections of steaming solid waste since 9/11.
