The Trump admin is not going to implement the sanctions against Russia. I’ve been mentioning this since they missed the initial deadline in October, but they officially confirmed they do not intend to go through with the bipartisan bill. This comes at a time when CIA chief, Mike Pompeo, says he believes the Russians intend to also interfere with the US 2018 mid-terms. The bill was created as a response to Russia interfering with our 2016 Election and similar such things in the last year. It was passed easily by both Democrats and Republicans.
In my opinion, Congress needs to enforce the bill. But the GOP is silent and the only Democrat who has said anything basically stated he’s not happy with it.
