    Exclamation Schiff Warns of 'Vigorous' Response by Congress If Trump Reverses Russia Sanctions

    We all know full well that not all Republicans in Congress are on-board with Trump nor did they all vote for him. Congressman Schiff is correct in that it will be tough for Trump to try to undo the sanctions that President Obama recently placed on Russia should he attempt to try simply because he does not have the full support of all Republicans in Congress nor of course, from the Democrats. Therefore, he needs to just acquiesce and encourage even more sanctions to be placed on Russia in order to do that which is right and save face with the American people who, as a whole, do not view Russia favorably.

    Schiff Warns of 'Vigorous' Response by Congress If Trump Reverses Russia Sanctions - ABC News
    By Nicki Rossoll

    "You're going to see Democrats, and Republicans like [John] McCain and [Lindsey] Graham, and others come together with a strong sanctions package because frankly even though what the administration did was more than symbolic -- it was very meaningful -- it is not enough to deter Russia," Schiff told ABC News Chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl on "This Week."
    "Schiff also hit Trump for appearing to question U.S. intelligence reports that Russians are responsible for the hack."
    "If he's going to have any credibility as president, he needs to stop talking this way. He needs to stop denigrating the intelligence community. He's going to rely on them. He's going to have to rely on them," Schiff said."
    Thanks from the watchman and Bourne

    That was the entire reason behind Obama's actions...that's the whole reason behind all of his parting gifts.

    Notice the article doesn't quote trump saying he would reverse sanctions.

    Apparently, there are still SOME Republicans and conservatives....


    who are NOT Putin apologists because Trump is a Putin apologist and they are loyal Trump sycophants.

    He's in Congress. He doesn't need to show you anything to act. He and his colleagues will hear and vote on sanctions. Your part is over.
