One of Russia’s state-run TV news programs this week expressed displeasure with newly announced sanctions being leveled against the Kremlin — and one guest said that it was time to put direct pressure on President Donald Trump to get his administration to back off.

Julia Davis, who runs the Russian Media Monitor website, reports via Twitter that news show “60 Minutes” this week held a panel discussion about actions Russia should take to retaliate against the latest round of American sanctions.

Vitaly Tretyakov, the dean of the Moscow State University’s School of Television, argued that the Russian government should use whatever leverage it had over Trump to bend the president to its will.

“Let’s turn this into a headache for Trump,” he said, according to Davis’ translation. “If you want us to support you in the elections, do what we say.”

You know the thing that always gets me is how blatant the Russians are about the fact that they have Trump’s balls in their pocket. 

Russian TV does not air anything without the direct say-so of the Kremlin. 

That essentially means that Putin is sending Trump a message. 

So now we will wait and see how Trump responds.

    They just keep cheating to ‘win’.

    GOP Georgia Governor Candidate Purged Voter Rolls
    As Secretary of State, Kemp removed 591,000 voters

    So the congressional race is being determined by the votes NOT counted, not by the votes cast.
    It’s not close, the Democrats won, if you counted all the votes… …

    ==================================================

    So Russian TV (which is putin because it is state run) just admitted they are helping trump and are meddling.

    Has anyone seen what the WH response (lie) to this threat was?

    I really think this is much ado about nothing. Russia’s sudden ire at Don the Con seems timed to help put out the collusion conflagration he is finding himself in. Hopefully it won’t work. As soon as I read that there were sanctions against Russia over the nerve gas incidents in the UK, I thought that these sanctions are more pro forma than real. It will be interesting to see how it all shakes out. We’ll know a lot as soon as Congressional GOP-ers appear on the Sunday talk shows full of “see how much Russia hates us” drivel. I mean there are now two new US citizens who are former Communists and their daughter presides over the White House while the Oval Office is getting a “refurbishment” (latest style of microphones perhaps?). I wonder who’s doing the Oval Office work; is it perchance the Trump Tower chief carpenter and his crew?

      I am sure that trump is some how funneling the “refurbishment” into his business. How much money will he scam from the taxpayers before there is a stop to it.

      His crew, let’s see if they only speak russian

    ‘“When the clock strikes 12, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court will administer the oath of office to her, no matter where it is—he doesn’t have to show up, he doesn’t have to concede,” O’Donnell said. “The second she takes the oath she’s the president, he isn’t any longer. The Secret Service will physically remove him from the building if he’s still there.”’

      “Eyewitness video captured the plane making barrel rolls and turns over the water. F-15 fighter jets that scrambled out of airbase in Portland were captured on video trailing the plane. Soon after, the plane took a nose dive, an eyewitness told the Seattle Times.

      The plane crashed into a wooded island, killing the pilot and starting a fire, Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor said. No one else was injured.

      “This is a single suicide male. We know who he is. No others involved,” the sheriff’s office said in a tweet that noted it was “not a terrorist incident.””

    The russians would have been better off getting along with Clintons and Obama instead of the deceit and liars club. Their KGB crimes must stop and they better regroup before their citizens revolt and throw them all out of the country.
