So Much For A 'WITCH HUNT!' Trump Administration Announces Sanctions Against Russians Listed In Mueller Indictment!

no title

Finally Donald Trump is doing something about Russia!

Trump's Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced on Thursday they will finally enact sanctions on Russian agents (a month and a half after the Congressional deadline btw) for their "attempted interference in US elections, destructive cyber-attacks, and intrusions targeting critical infrastructure."

Five entities and 19 individuals will be barred from traveling in the U.S. and have all their stateside assets frozen, which should stop them from being about to continue their actions.

Those sanctioned include the troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency, which spread divisive rhetoric mostly in Trump's favor during the election, and one of its financial backers, Yevgeniy Viktorovich Prigozhin — a friend of Putin.

If any of that sounds familiar, it's probably because it's the same people Robert Mueller indicted a few weeks ago — along with 13 others also named in today's sanctions — as part of the investigation Trump keeps calling an all-caps "WITCH HUNT!" and has tried multiple times to end.

Oh BTW, this is not even close to the list of names for possible sanctions Treasury released back in January, which was apparently just a cut-and-paste job of Forbes' list of Russian billionaires. No, this is much closer to Mueller's indictments. Which leads to the question — would this have gotten done at all without the Mueller probe???

But there's more we didn't know…
