Clinton supporters: US congress "cornered" Trump with anti-Russian sanctions

39
According to information RIA News, John Podesta, who previously headed Hillary Clinton’s campaign headquarters, believes that Donald Trump will be forced to approve a congressional bill that provides for sanctions against Russia.

I am glad that the congress accepted it, and I am glad that they accepted it by an overwhelming majority, and I am glad that the president has been cornered and must sign it.


Clinton supporters: US congress "cornered" Trump with anti-Russian sanctions


In the case of a veto imposed by the President of the United States, both houses of Congress can overcome it with two thirds of the votes in each of them. As the voting results show, such an outcome is most likely.

Regarding the Russian Federation, the bill expands a number of sectoral sanctions. Among other things, the maximum term for financing Russian banks that have fallen under US sanctions is reduced to 14 days, oil and gas companies - to 60 days (now it is 30 days and 90 days, respectively).

Amendments are made to deep-water and arctic offshore projects, as well as oil and gas projects with hard-to-recover reserves. During their implementation it is forbidden to supply equipment and technology. Restrictions apply to all new projects in which Russian sub-sanctioned companies own 33% or more.

It is assumed that the President of the United States has the right to impose sanctions on persons intending to invest more than 5 million per year in the construction of Russian export pipelines or 1 million dollars at a time or provide services, technology, and information support to projects. Separately, it says about the US intention to oppose the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

      In a war of sanctions, one must act tough. Introducing sanctions means the enemy. Tear diplomatic relations! Let them consider possible losses! Then they will not automatically renew. There is nothing to lisp!
      In war as in war ...

            He can laugh, he knows very well that China will not give him the abyss, since he needs him. We, besides ourselves, have no one to hope for, there are no allies, there are only "fellow travelers".
            The Chinese leadership is well aware that Korea, in the plans of the United States, has the role of Ukraine, but against China. So that they are doing their best to prevent this.
            And the activation of the DPRK missile tests is one of the attempts to stop the United States.

          VERY much depends on the position of the EU, energy companies in particular. Naturally, those who are tied to cooperation with Russia in the energy sector. The French have already merged. To the English, staffers promise a crazy profit in trading directly. Germany remained. What will Grandma Merkel say?
          But I strongly suspect that the EU will silently swallow LNG for 500 bucks from the United States, not counting the overhead.

        An interesting war turns out.
        We are going to advance (or defend - it makes no difference), and we take rounds of ammunition not only through the territory of the enemy, but also ask how much can be brought?
        I'm talking about money that goes ONLY through Western (American) banks.
        I'm talking about the Central Bank which issues the Russian ruble in relation to the number of dollars that it has.

        Such a war is more difficult than the Great Patriotic War, from the point of view of the horizon of possibilities.
        I am truly sorry for Putin. And us with him.
        That drove Russia so drove.

      Behind every congressman and senator there is a particular business lobby, therefore, Russia, in addition to diplomatic measures, needs to think out an answer directed at those kids who are supervised by the local political groups. As soon as one of them starts losing babosiks, the senators and congressmen will sing differently! Of course, the group of Russophobic scumbags will not go anywhere, but they will already be more manageable! In the USA, the lobby is all ...

      The United States plans to seize the Ukrainian section of the gas pipe and force Russia to supply gas to Europe through this system, making money on transit. It is clear that they will guarantee the Europeans uninterrupted supplies, pipe maintenance and, of course, its protection. However, about 70% of Germans are against anti-Russian sanctions. Grandmother Merkel will have an election and a secret secret chancellor’s agreement with America on the right to be Chancellor and fulfill all US requirements.
      Whether Germany will fight against its colonial independence from America or lose the role of the locomotive of Europe, time will tell.

    In short, here is the TRUE explanation of all this anti-Russian hysteria in America. Nothing personal just business. The task is to get the gas market in Europe, eliminating a competitor in it in a MARKETLY way, and at the same time turn the president into a “hand lap”, yapping and wagging its tail at the direction of the congress. But if this congress and Senate united camarilla gets a taste, they will cease to be an operatively managed structure. And to agree among themselves without a kind of "common irritant" in the form of Trump - it may not work out ... wassat

    Most importantly, this law restricts the rights and authority of the US President. In America, the Revolution is taking place and this is one of its steps, as a result, the USA can turn from a presidential republic into a parliamentary one.

    America wants to make North Korea from Russia. Slowly but surely enclosing Russia from the rest of the world. There is a completely unequal struggle, because on the one side, only Russia, and on the other the whole civilized world. But America is also vulnerable, in economic terms, it has a huge problem due to the bloated bubble of the economy and the dollar financial pyramid. Here it is precisely on these very weak spots that one needs to be beaten. In order for the domino effect to work, a chain reaction has arisen, it does not take much effort. The main thing is to choose a favorable moment, and throw off all the dollars and American securities at once, and not get rid of them gradually.

    Yes, it was naive to hope that Uncle Trump would do something about Russia. On one side of the scale, his entire career as president, his reputation as a businessman, and on the other the interests of distant and cold Russia. You can not continue further. And even taking the most aggressive acts against us, the United States does not risk anything (well, except for the notorious rocket engines).

    In general, it is very interesting how the EU will react, new sanctions are obtained more against them. And it’s as if Trump is being driven into a trap, like when things got much worse, he fell out with everyone, Russia, China, the EU, Turkey, a disgrace in the BV and DPRK, and you won’t sign Congress impeachment signs. Such matters, in the struggle for power over their own state, they are really fucked up, and this is certainly wonderful if they had not dragged the whole world to the bottom for themselves.

    Why did it suddenly "drive"? Trump to Russia and the whole world, even more than their democrats. And if Amer’s LNG goes under this case in the EU, then Trump will sign without looking at all. He promised to support domestic oil and gas workers. Under him, the US economy is already growing strongly, and with the growth of LNG exports, there will be even more.
