Trump puts the brakes on new Russian sanctions, reversing Haley’s announcement

President Trump on Monday put the brakes on a preliminary plan to impose additional economic sanctions on Russia, walking back a Sunday announcement by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley that the Kremlin had swiftly denounced as “international economic raiding.”...

...Sometime after Haley’s comments on CBS, the Trump administration notified the Russian Embassy in Washington that the sanctions were not in fact coming, a Russian Foreign Ministry official said Monday...

...Haley said Sunday on CBS: “You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down. Secretary Mnuchin will be announcing those on Monday, if he hasn’t already. And they will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons used. And so I think everyone is going to feel it at this point. I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message, and our hope is that they listen to it.”

On a (slightly related) note -

Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, represented just three people in the last few years.

1) Trump - for whom Cohen paid $130,000 (without Trump knowing, apparently) to porn star Stormy Daniels, to keep her silent.

2) Elliott Broidy - Former Republican National Committee official who resigned after it became public that he'd gotten a Playboy model pregnant while have an extramarital affair - Cohen worked out a deal with the model for $1.6 million for her silence.

3) Cohen tried to keep the 3rd one secret - today U.S. District Court judge Kimba Wood (appointed by Reagan) forced Cohen to reveal the name of that client.

Sean Hannity.

Re: President Trump & U.S Election 2016 Investigation

Are we sure this not an attempt by Russia to misinform.

No other outlet is reporting this, in fact one outlet updated less than an hour ago says the U.S is still considering sanctions ???

What is illegal about representing Sean Hannity in this total witch hunt of a non-story ?

Re: President Trump & U.S Election 2016 Investigation

The most recommended comment in today's FT makes an incisive point.

Quote from poster named RiskAdjustedReturn

One mystery that no one has explained is why Trump can never bring himself to personally say anything bad about Putin.

He bashes the Democrats, he bashes the Republicans, he bashes the Congress, he bashes our entire Justice Department, he bashes the entire US Press, he bashes our neighbors Canada and Mexico, he bashes China, he bashes Germany, he bashes our trade partners in Asia, he bashes our NATO allies, etc.

He even bashes his own cabinet members that he hired himself!

But he can never, ever bash Putin!

One point I can see is whether Sean Hannity would have had to declare a conflict of interest when reporting/commenting on matters in which his lawyer was involved. I don't know the legalities of this.

It's not illegal for reporters to hide conflicts of interests. Not that Sean Hannity is a reporter as such.

Clearly Fake News.... An actual Trump tweet last week.... criticising Putin, in name, propping up Assad... he's done more than what Corbyn has for sure.

Haley said on Sunday Haley that sanctions against Moscow will "be coming down" on Monday; today Sarah Huckabee Sanders said "We are considering additional sanctions on Russia and a decision will be made in the near future".

Re: President Trump & U.S Election 2016 Investigation

None of those showed up on my google search. Either way, perhaps Nikki spoke out of step. Not her role to decide on Sanctions. That’s up to the U.S government. We will see what happens down the line. Not that Sanctions really work.

Re: President Trump & U.S Election 2016 Investigation

Haley is in a Cabinet-level position and is on the NSC, so she is a member of the US Government.

Putin thinks sanctions are worthless, that must be why he complains about them so much...

Re: President Trump & U.S Election 2016 Investigation

Interesting piece about James Comey by the BBC's North American editor Jon Soppel who has read the book and watched the interviews. He concludes that Comey is still a threat as Trump has been unable to prove him a liar. And Trump's poor record on the truth front won't make this task easy.
Quote:
He is deeply flawed. But ultimately it will come down to a question of who do you believe: the president or his former FBI director?

One has a bit of a track record of, how can one put this, making assertions that don't bear close scrutiny (for example, the false claims that Obama wasn't born in the US, therefore was illegitimate as president, that Muslims in New Jersey cheered when the twin towers came down in 2001, that the crowds for his inauguration were bigger than Obama's, that three million people voted illegally and that his was the biggest electoral college victory since Reagan - I could go on).

The other does not.

The president has called Comey a slimeball. Quite possibly. But to neutralise him fully, Donald Trump has to undermine his credibility, and prove he's a liar. That hasn't happened yet, so for the moment the 6ft 8in former FBI director can still walk tall.

And that makes him dangerous.

Re: President Trump & U.S Election 2016 Investigation

Comey has his signature on a dodgy FISA Application. He leaked his Classified memos to the press. Comey should have a lot to worry about, legally, so is not walking tall, IMO and even more so as fellow law enforcement officials come out against his stance and book writing.
