Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says he will ask President Trump this weekend to lift sanctions against top Russian officials so they can visit the United States later this year.
Paul said members of both bodies of Russia’s legislature had agreed to come to the United States to continue talks after the GOP senator visited Moscow earlier this month.
“They have both agreed to come to Washington in the fall for further meetings. That’s a good thing. The downside is the chairman of each of the committees is banned from coming to the United States because of sanctions,” Paul told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham.
He added that to overcome the blockade he will ask the president, when they talk this weekend, to “take people off the list who are in the legislature.”
First off if anybody believes that Rand Paul’s concerns are with bettering relations with Russia for purely humanitarian reasons they need to leave this website right away because they are too ignorant to share our space.
My personal impression is that when the Russians hacked the RNC server they collected a lot of potentially scandalous information to be used at a later time as needed and that now they are deciding what to use and on whom.
Rand Paul is a contemptible little shit, and I have no doubt that there is plenty of kompromat that he does not want to ever see the light of day.
