“Signing a bill that sanctions Russia would mark a significant shift for Trump. He’s repeatedly cast doubt on the conclusion of U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia sought to tip the election in his favor. The president also has pushed for cooperation between Moscow and Washington on various matters, such as counterterrorism and the conflict in Syria, and more sanctions against Russia could imperil that effort.

Trump’s persistent overtures to Russia drove lawmakers to include a section that mandates a congressional review if Trump attempted to suspend or terminate the sanctions on Moscow. The White House had objected to the review requirement, arguing it would infringe on the president’s executive authority and tie his hands as he explores avenues of communication between the two former Cold War foes.”

“Vast support for Russia sanctions quashes potential for veto”

As I wrote in the beginning of the year, the first six months in office make or break a president by setting the tempo for the remainder of his term. The President has not been effective in any area, and he has pulled a complete 180-degree shift in dealing with Russia. After they met in the G-20 summit, relations between the President and Vladimir Putin have steadily declined.

Now we have a Congress who has long desired to go to war with Russia, and a President who is ineffective at every turn. Obamacare will not be repealed, the border fence is a fiasco, and the Democrats (aided by the pseudo-Republicans) are doing the “Rope-a-Dope” on the President. They are bouncing off the actions he takes akin to Ali on the ropes and making continuous counterattacks of their own. Domestically, the President has not lost control because he never had it, and now the shadow government that is hidden behind the pseudo-Congress and the moneyed interests that support it are pushing the United States into a war with Russia.

It’s worse than merely a consortium seeking expansion of empire and all the attached perks. Look at this excerpt:

“The U.S. is actively considering whether or not to arm Ukrainian forces in their war with Russian-backed insurgents in the east, the new U.S. envoy for Ukraine told the BBC. Fresh from his first official tour in his new role, during which he claimed to be “astonished” with the “hot war” he had seen in the east, Kurt Volker said in an interview on Tuesday that arming Ukrainian troops could shift Moscow’s tactic but would not be provocative.

“Defensive weapons, ones that would allow Ukraine to defend itself, and to take out tanks for example, would actually stop Russia threatening Ukraine,” Volker said. “I’m not again predicting where we go on this, that’s a matter for further discussion and decision, but I think that argument that it would be provocative to Russia or emboldening of Ukraine is just getting it backwards,” he added

Despite initial concern that Trump’s sympathies for Russian President Vladimir Putin could compromise the U.S.’s position on Ukraine, there has been virtually no change in Washington’s approach to Kiev since the administration came into office.

Members of Trump’s Republican Party—historically in favor of using more kinetic combat means to neuter any expansive visions the Kremlin may have—are rallying around a call for a more hardline policy.

“Vladimir Putin’s violent campaign to destabilize and dismember the sovereign nation of Ukraine will not stop unless and until he meets a strong and determined response,” McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee told Trump in February.”
