US Hits Russian Oligarchs, Officials, With Sanctions Over Election Interference

Wow. It appears to me that a US-Saudi Arabia-Israel alliance is strengthening in opposition to a Russia-Iran-Syria alliance. The Bible prophesies a big battle in the region. Things are shaping up. Here, from SecTreas Mnuchin:
"The Russian government engages in a range of malign activity around the globe, including continuing to occupy Crimea and instigate violence in eastern Ukraine, supplying the Assad regime with material and weaponry as they bomb their own civilians, attempting to subvert Western democracies, and malicious cyber activities. Russian oligarchs and elites who profit from this corrupt system will no longer be insulated from the consequences of their government's destabilizing activities."
Seems the Russian "hooker" who posted incriminating video on Facebook just might have been on to something, re: Jailed Russian 'sex coaches' offer to trade election info for US asylum

For the time being, she's out of sight....

U.S. Hits Russian Oligarchs And Officials With Sanctions Over Election Interference

The Trump administration is laying sanctions on 38 Russian oligarchs, government officials and business entities, citing "the Kremlin's malign agenda" that ranges from malicious online campaigns and efforts to undermine democracy to its actions in eastern Ukraine and Syria.

Seven Russian oligarchs and the 12 companies they own or control are on the new sanctions list. So are 17 senior Russian government officials, along with a government -owned weapons trading company and its subsidiary bank.

The move by the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control targets members of Russia's elite, including Kirill Shamalov, the husband of Russian President Vladimir Putin's daughter, who famously received a loan of more than $1 billion from state-owned Gazprombank.

The list also names Oleg Deripaska, a businessman who has been linked to President Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort. The Treasury says Deripaska has operated on the Russian government's behalf; it also cited "allegations that Deripaska bribed a government official, ordered the murder of a businessman, and had links to a Russian organized crime group."

Because of the sanctions, assets held by the individuals in the U.S. will be frozen; Americans are also barred from doing business with those named in the list.

This shows you just how scared the Republican President is of the whole Mueller/Russia thing.

It shows that Mueller is serving the best interests of our nation, and that Russian influence in our government is substantial and damaging. Too bad the right has closed its collective eyes to the value of Mueller's investigation.

Witch hunt indeed.

At this point I still am willing to consider that DJ was ignorant of all the sh*t going on around him. His ego is that big.

I feel for your chosen deception which is built on lies. Even your Lord Trump has a better picture of what's going on.

And I’m thinking that your rantings have become so unintelligible, why don’t I take advantage of this site’s “ignore” function for only the second time in my many years on DTT. Go away.

Yeah...what was all that yammering about?

"Putin is thinking How did his my collusion with Hillary not defeat Trump. I tried I sold her a Dossier, I put ads on Facebook, I had my people do photo-ops with her and her Reset Button,

Am I wrong in saying RUSSIA is a mess?? I mean CNN had a long segment today on the Russian Oligarchy, even stating that Putin is probably the richest man on the planet......but we'll never know for sure.
We do know that his son-in-law Kirill Shamalov (are they still married?) is a billionaire and that many close to Putin are buying up property all over Europe and the U.S.
Of course it's all hidden well behind shell companies.

Are the Russian people starving? Sick? Poverty stricken? How about the economy--over all?

The Russian people are tough on the one hand and led by the nose on the other, at least a majority of them right now. Poor folks have caught the raw end of things for more than 100 years, but dammit they lack the spirit to do anything about it. Their primary concern is for things to stay "normal."

Few if any are starving. The middle class is struggling to pay their bills. The poor are dirt poor, the "villagers" as the urban snobs refer to them.

Infrastructure sucks. No one in power cares. Nothing gets done. Few third-world countries are more corrupt than Putin and Friends. And all the trends I mentioned are accelerating while Putin struts his nuts over new and improved ICBMs.

My wife is truly depressed over the situation in Russia, where most of her family lives, and in Ukraine.
Thanks from Lyzza and Clara007
