As promised (or threatened), the Obama administration has unveiled - via the US Treasury - new sanctions against Russia over election hacking allegations (that as yet have not been supported by any actual evidence). Despite president-elect Trump's comments that "we ought to get on with our lives," the sanctions apply to five entities and six individuals, and also including the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats and closing two Russian compounds in New York and Maryland in response to a campaign of harassment against American diplomats in Moscow, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday.The less Russians in the US, the better. The Russian government is a criminal conspiracy led by the king thug himself. They may have dropped the Communism, but the sticky fingers remain.
Don't take my word for it. Read "Red Notice" by Bill Browder. (Amazon Link. My March 2015 Review.) Bill's story is shocking because it happened within the last 60 years.
There aren't many things worse than the leadership of that backward country, but a petty lame-duck President who doesn't realize he and his ilk have also been told to GTFO is one of them.
