After 20 to 30 artillery and tank rounds landed near the Kurds and USA soldiers acting as advisers, the US coalition responded with artillery and airstrikes, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said February 8.
Donald Trump not only talks dirty; he also plays dirty, as seen in tweets over the weekend. Steele did not register as a foreign agent. Almost three-quarters of Republicans say they are not very or not at all concerned about any improper relations between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, something that bothers almost half the public overall. One, he is easily extraditable while the Russians are not. To whip up anti-Muslim fervor to Trump's benefit, they created a Facebook group called "United Muslims of America" and promoted a rally called "Support Hillary". On Oct. 7, his administration formally accused Russian Federation of stealing and leaking emails from the Democratic National Committee and a range of other institutions and individuals. Nunes' efforts include repeated attacks on the Justice Department and FBI to divert attention from the Russian Federation investigation and lying to the American people to cover up his secret work with the White House to shield Trump.
U.S. officials on Wednesday admitted no specific sanctions had been introduced yet, but said that was because the administration was doing its due diligence, rather than an attempt to slow-walk the process. But Trump's "Get smart America!" scold suggests he also thinks it might be better if everyone just looked the other way and let the Russian Federation thing slide.
Trump tying the Russian investigation to a completely non-related mass-shooting, shows the low lengths he's willing to go to discredit the FBI and the Russian investigation. Congressional committees held hearings on the social media attacks last fall, but legislation to require technology companies to enhance openness for online political ads has stalled amid GOP concerns of overregulation. Sanders' characterization of the event as evidence that the president has been "tougher on Russian in the first year than Obama was in eight years combined" could antagonize the Kremlin.
With that mindset in Washington, it's unlikely the president or Congress can fix the problem.
The three highest officeholders in our government are not carrying out their sworn oaths to protect our constitutional system from enemy attacks.
If Mr. Mueller is moving up the ladder, patiently building a case against Mr. Trump, he should continue his work.
Sessions, because of his role on the Trump campaign, recused himself from the special counsel's Russian Federation probe months ago - a move that angered Trump and has caused him to lash out at his attorney general over and over. Text messages between Strzok and fellow FBI official Lisa Page suggest that Lynch knew in advance about the conclusions Comey would reach in the investigation.
The question of potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation has been central to much of the investigation. But neither likely happened. Why aren't Dem (Democratic) crimes under investigation? But if they did exist, collusion and obstruction were committed by those associated with the Clinton campaign and even by members of the Obama administration. It also isn't the first time Trump has publicly berated Sessions over the Russian Federation investigation on Twitter having previously described him as "weak" and "beleaguered".
"We would like to get after these guys and we would like to catch them in the act and not enable them to change course ... so that we have a harder time detecting them".
