Senate approves resolution warning Trump not to hand over US officials to Russia

Mod: Trump had wanted to hand American officials over to the Russians for interrogation? Of course he did. Look at who he is working for.

Senate approves resolution warning Trump not to hand over US officials (The Hill link): The Senate on Thursday unanimously approved a resolution warning President Trump not to let the Russian government question diplomats and other officials, shortly after the White House released a statement backpedaling on a proposal to allow Moscow to help interrogate U.S. citizens such as former Ambassador Michael McFaul. Senators voted 98-0 on the resolution spearheaded by Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Democratic Sens. Bob Menendez (N.J.), Dick Durbin (Ill.) and Brian Schatz (HI).

“That President Trump would even consider handing over a former U.S. ambassador to Putin and his cronies for interrogation is bewildering. …This body must agree on the importance of protecting our ambassadors. We should pass it today, not wait, not show any equivocation,” Schumer said ahead of the vote, which was scheduled before the White House backtracked.

The nonbinding resolution comes amid growing frustration in the Senate over the White House's warmer stance toward Moscow, especially after the joint summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Trump earlier this week.

The potential that Trump could allow Russia to question U.S. officials had been in the headlines since the summit in Helsinki.

Putin said during a press conference with Trump on Monday that the Kremlin would permit special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to travel to Russia and attend the questioning of 12 Russian intelligence officers indicted in the probe, if Russia is allowed to help interrogate some people “who have something to do with illegal actions in the territory of Russia.”

The White House initially refused to shoot down the proposal. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters on Wednesday that Trump was “gonna meet with his team” to talk about the potential for Russian officials to question U.S. citizens.

  2. Remember "1984" by George Orwell? It's arrived - yesterday: "We are at war with Eurasia; Oceania is our ally." Today: "We are at war with Oceania; Eurasia is our ally, never been at war with them." Trump yesterday: "I have no reason to doubt Putin when he says they didn't meddle in our election." Trump today, "I have no reason to not doubt Putin when he says they didn't meddle. I never said (or meant) the former." Yup, welcome to 1984.

      2) Don't send US officials to Russia for interrogation.

  4. If this is the case then why can't 'the great white hope' meeting with Robert Muellar so he can get it over with? May a third party country reps need to interrogate the 'great white hope' that hides in the White House? https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2018/07/nra-maria-butina-spying-charges-trump-campaign/

  10. Out of step with the rest of the world: propaganda prevails in US public policy

    Red states, the poorest and neediest in the country, are the recipients of the most federal dollars. Those conservative sections of the country vote overwhelmingly for politicians who want to cut Medicare and Social Security or who believe we should increase the retirement age, a craven work-around for screwing over people who already work too much for too little. A sizeable portion of working-class Americans oppose higher taxes on the rich and their corporations, funding education programs that would keep America competitive, and “socialist” institutions such as unions, the slow demise of which has greatly contributed to income inequality. Only in America could politicians convince so many poor people that universal healthcare—which isn’t “free” since their own hard-earned tax dollars would largely underwrite it—is some sort of Soviet takeover.

  15. Hahaha dumb fake patriot 10:48am. Esq. Cohen needs money,you realize that "Special Council's" only skin in the game is to financially ruin people.
    Cohen's secret tape only records that any checks should be paper trails, needed for clariety and taxes. It does not say a check was written.
    Choen released tape inorder to show that their is nothing to "hide".
    Unlike Muller hiding Russian Collusion inorder to keep his paycheck coming on his fake investigstion.

  21. Bigger problem than Russian asset Trump is how many Russian assets there are in Congress who won’t do anything to protect the next election.

  22. Drain the swamp... or literally sleep with it.

    longtime Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle did not leave the cable news network voluntarily. Guilfoyle, who is currently in a relationship with President Donald Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr., has worked at the network since 2006. Dude ain’t even divorced yet.

  23. Trump supporters 6 months ago:“There were no meetings with any Russians.”

    Trump supporters 3 months ago: “They just forgot to report the meetings with Russians.”

    Trump supporters last week: "There's no evidence of collusion with Russia!!"

    Trump supporters 3 days ago: "Who cares if the Trump campaign colluded with Russia?"

    Trump supporters yesterday: “It’s Obama’s fault for not stopping the meetings with Russians.”

    Trump’s lawyer Jay Sekulow today: “It’s the Secret Service’s fault for not stopping the meeting with Russians.”

    Trump supporters tomorrow: “Трамп собирается сделать Россию великой снова!”

  24. The definition of collusion

    col·lu·sion: secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy, especially in order to cheat or deceive others.

    Sounds like what happened in Helsinki. Collusion may not be a defined crime, but Trump most certainly colluded with Putin last week. The media should start using that term. It's not wrong -- it fits the definition!

    "While in Helsinki, the President and Mr. Putin colluded for two hours"

    "After two hours of colluding, the two held a press conference..."
