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…

Donald Trump Responds To President Obama's Sanction Of Russian Officials: 'It's Time For Our Country To Move On To Bigger & Better Things'

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaDonald TrumpControversy

Donald Trump doesn't seemed pleased that President Barack Obama took action.

On Thursday, the Obama Administration stayed true to their word, kicking 35 Russian diplomats out of the US and imposing sanctions on Russia's intelligence groups.

The bold move was an act of retaliation for the country's interference in the 2016 presidential election.

And now, the President-Elect is addressing the current Commander-In-Chief's actions. The businessman issued a short statement, saying:

"It's time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation."

Ummmm, we think declaring that it's time to "move on" from this controversy is a pretty hypocritical move, coming from the man who insisted the election was rigged before he ended up winning…

However, it is uncharacteristically refreshing that our country's impending leader actually plans to meet with intelligence officials to discuss the issue.

What do U think, Perezcious readers?!
