Senator Rand Paul on Thursday blocked a resolution from Senator Bernie Sanders' to implement even more sanctions against Russia, demand Trump speak with special counsel Robert Mueller and back the "intelligence community's assessment" on Russkie meddling.
From The Hill:
Sanders asked for unanimous consent to try to pass his resolution, saying senators "must act" if they are "serious about preserving American democracy."WATCH:
SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY): Trump Derangement Syndrome has officially come to the Senate. The hatred for the President is so intense that partisans would rather risk war than give diplomacy a chance. Does anybody remember that Ronald Reagan sat down with Gorbachev and lessened the nuclear tensions? We need to still have those open talks.Slimy Sanders responded by saying his resolution demanding more sanctions on Russia had "nothing to do with ending diplomacy with Russia."
For the record, just last year Slimy Sanders was the only senator other than Rand Paul who voted against the expansion of sanctions against Russia, which the senate passed in defiance of Trump 98-2. Now he's saying we need to implement the sanctions he voted against immediately!
Despite Paul blocking this bill Mitch McConnell and other sellouts are looking to get a bill together to further expand sanctions and further destroy our relations with Russia in defiance of Trump.
