The Collusion Is Right Out in the Open

Always has been, and still is.
The United States Treasury lifted sanctions on three businesses linked to Russian oligarch and Putin ally Oleg Deripaska on Sunday. The companies — Rusal, EN+ Group Plc, and EuroSibEnergo JSC — have all "agreed to unprecedented transparency for Treasury into their operations by undertaking extensive, ongoing auditing, certification, and reporting requirements," the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control said in a press release.

...The move comes over the objections of congressional democrats, who have argued that the sanctions should not be lifted until the Mueller investigation has ended.

Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) was one of the first to condemn the lifting of sanctions Sunday in a statement to The Daily Beast. "Ignoring House disapproval of this sordid deal, refusing to have Secretary Mnuchin testify, and seeking to preempt Senate disapproval, the Trump Administration is working seven days a week with favoritism for Russia. This represents just one more step in undermining the sanctions law, which [Donald] Trump has obstructed at every opportunity, while Russian aggression remains unabated," Doggett said.
Welp. That about sums it up.

We are being governed, such as anyone in the executive branch is governing the nation at the moment, by traitors.
