Default 3 sanctioned Russian spys met in US days before Trump decided against new sanctions

The sanctions passed overwhelmingly but will the republicans even ask why tRUmp won't enforce the sanctions they wanted? Nope. These partisan invertebrates....

As for the trip, it was kept completely secret until the Russians reported on it, which is putins way of teabagging tRUmp and embarrassing him even further. letting the world know who his boss is.


Russian officials visit US as new sanctions not enforced - Business Insider
  • Three top Russian intelligence officials traveled to the US last week.
  • Two of them are banned from entering the US under current sanctions
  • The State Department declined to comment on the specifics of the case and referred further questions to the Russian embassy.


Quote:
Sergei Naryshkin, the head of Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), and Alexander Bortnikov, who spearheads the Federal Security Service (FSB), met with Pompeo to discuss the US's and Russia's mutual interest in counterterrorism.

A third official, Igor Korobov, visited the US at the same time as Naryshkin and Bortnikov but did not meet with Pompeo. Korobov leads the GRU, Russia's military intelligence unit.

Both Naryshkin and Korobov are among several Russian officials who were barred from entering the US under current sanctions.


Naryshkin was barred after former President Barack Obama signed a 2014 executive order imposing sanctions on Russia following its aggression in the neighboring territory of Crimea. According to the order, which was signed in March 2014, Naryshkin cannot enter the US without a waiver and express approval from the White House and other federal agencies.

Korobov, meanwhile, was barred after Obama signed another executive order implementing new sanctions in December 2016. He authorized the order after receiving confirmation from the US intelligence community that the Russian government mounted an elaborate campaign to interfere in the 2016 election.

The order imposed sanctions on individuals, like Korobov, who were found to have been responsible for or complicit in "malicious cyber-enabled activities" that represented a threat to US national security.

The GRU was the primary Russian intelligence agency responsible for interfering the 2016 election. In addition to hacking and disseminating the Democratic National Committee emails and attempting to breach election systems, Russia also worked to establish personal contact with Americans seen as sympathetic to Moscow. Officials also mounted an elaborate social media campaign aimed at spreading disinformation and stoking partisan bickering via Twitter and Facebook.

The article referenced in the OP is derivative from the viciously anti Trump WaPo article .

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world...=.a6f2097a9a03

The source article explains the meeting was to discuss improved counterterrorism cooperation, something the article referenced by the OP omits. Naturally Resistance zealots seize on any meeting with Russians as some deep conspiracy never mind the evidence.

The only people that want to talk with the country that attacked us and meddled in our election are the people that helped them do it.

If tRUmp was interested in protecting American he would have passed the sanctions and the only talking he'd be doing with russia is laughing as their economy collapses and putin fleas in disgrace.
