GOP Senators Voted Down Deripaska Sanctions

In case you missed it, on January 16 2019, the U.S. Senate voted on a resolution to keep sanctions against businesses ran by Putin-allied Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska in place. This is after Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin inexplicably lifted sanctions against the TrumpRussia mastermind.

To overcome Trump administration’s move to lift sanctions against Deripaska’s businesses, the Senate resolution would have to pass by 60 votes. In the end the resolution failed after a final tally of 57-42, three Senators short of the required 60 votes.

Here’s a HANDY LIST of the 42 GOP Senators who voted down the resolution, essentially opposing sanctions against Deripaska’s companies.

Interestingly Sen Bernie Sanders did not vote on this measure–no reason afforded as to why

Bottom line, as Yours Truly has said repeatedly before, even though the mainstream media pays a lot of attention to Trump in regards to the Russian stories, it is very important that they also keep in mind that he is not the only Russian asset. He has ample company among GOP Members of Congress.

  2. All of these senators were corrupted by the Russians through the NRA and that Russian woman that’s in jail. It is so hard to believe that Republican party would sell our country down the river for money. The Democrats can start the impeachment process of trump but it will never go anywhere because they eating from the same Russian money trough.
