New Threats from Russia?

A Russian official said after a high-level meeting with Trump administration officials that the two countries have "almost" reached a deal for the U.S. to return two diplomatic compounds to Russian control.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov had just left the meeting at the U.S. State Department early Monday evening when he responded to a shouted question about whether the two countries are close to a deal on the Russian compounds.

"Almost, almost," he said.

Russia has been losing patience with the Trump administration over the issue, threatening to retaliate if the compounds are not returned soon.

"It appears that the Russian side has no choice, it is time to retaliate," the chairman of Russia's Federation Council's foreign affairs committee told Sputnik, a Russian state-owned news agency.
But the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said any action toward returning the dachas would be "a major affront to Congress." Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Maryland, is just the latest to express his opposition; two bipartisan groups of Senators have previously written letters to the Trump administration, urging them not to return the compounds, including Republicans Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, and Johnny Isakson.

Despite the threats from Russia and strong Congressional opposition, the Trump administration does appear to be considering returning the dachas. As deputy assistant to the President, Sebastian Gorka said on CNN last Thursday, "We want to give collaboration, cooperation a chance."

Will Trump fold? Will Putin, once again, get the puppet he bargained for?

Comrade Chump will not punish Putin for hacking into our electoral process. The Chumpster wants to reward Putin for his efforts to destabilize Americans confidence in our electoral system. Chump is a treasonous bastard.

Putin wants all of the United States russian dachas back which Obama stole that the current administration has refused to comply. Remind Putin that eminent domain is alive and well in America.
