Voted Tuesday to lift sanctions on gangster oligarch Derispaska, so Mitch can return the favor of receiving millions in campaign funds and allow those Russian criminals to build an aluminum mill in Tennessee.

Trump-Loyal Senators Make Russian Oligarch's Day

http://www.rollingstone.com/po...ctions-russia-780221/

According to the Treasury itself: "Deripaska has been investigated for money laundering, and has been accused of threatening the lives of business rivals, illegally wiretapping a government official, and taking part in extortion and racketeering. There are also allegations that Deripaska bribed a government official, ordered the murder of a businessman, and had links to a Russian organized crime group." The oligarch, Treasury wrote, is a keen Kremlin loyalist: "Deripaska has said that he does not separate himself from the Russian state."


Deripaska loaned $10M to Manafort.

You referring to the vote that occurred in January? That didn't lift sanctions on Deripaska.

Yes, it was dated Jan.
Trump's Treasury was lifting sanction's this was a failed attempt to prevent this "collusion" as you like to call it.

So yes, GOP senators voted to lift the sanctions, approved the collusion.

The democrats and the press are our enemies but the Russians are our friends.

If you catch RT, you might notice a new anti trump slant coming from the Russian version of Faux News.
