President Trump is so cozy with his pal Putin that he has yet to enact bipartisan sanctions on Russian Federation that Congress [passed] w/ an overwhelming majority.
Despite repeated pleas by his top aides to admit that the Russians were fully behind the political cyberattacks, Trump has refused to do so.
"Trump has been over 1 year "more stringent" to Russian Federation than the previous President Barack Obama "for all 8 years", - said the press Secretary of the White house".
The officials also pointed to a proposed move by the Treasury last week to block one of Latvia's largest banks from accessing USA markets for its alleged role as a go-to money-laundering institution for Russian oligarchs, under an investigation first initiated by the Obama administration.
Some Democrats criticized the Trump administration for not immediately levying sanctions, particularly on a section targeting military spending and another focused on corrupt politicians and oligarchs.
The president's outburst ended a relatively subdued period after the deaths of 17 people in the shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla, on Wednesday. On Tuesday, Trump's press secretary seemed to throw caution and coherence to the wind.
As he shunned the golf course over the weekend, he instead spent time mingling with his supporters, including Geraldo Rivera. So they began "undermining her expected presidency".
Trump's comments came after special counsel Robert Mueller filed charges last week against 13 Russian individuals and three entities for allegedly conducting an "information warfare" campaign against the U.S.in order to help Trump win the election. And he was surrounded in Florida by people who are likely to share his grievances: his two oldest sons, as well as John F Kelly, his chief of staff, and Dan Scavino Jr, the White House social media director, who often emulates his boss's prose on Twitter.

House declares pornography 'public health risk' Nearly all 71 lawmakers who voted against considering the measure have an "A" rating from the National Rifle Association. They are also planning a mass rally March 24 in Washington, D.C., to demand an end to gun violence and school shootings.
The biggest Russian rally success appears to have been an anti-Trump event in NY after the election; it drew 10,000 people.
Meanwhile, federal court records show special counsel Mueller has filed at least one new charge against Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort. But unlike the reflective bipartisan process that followed 9/11, the task of addressing US vulnerabilities to Russian meddling remains mired in debates about what actually happened. The nation's intelligence agencies believe that it is not possible to make such a calculation about the election outcome. Trump tweeted. "Why didn't Obama do something about the meddling?"
I'm not sure what that means, but in any case didn't Trump say that the FBI could have stopped alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz if not for the Russian Federation investigation?
As he has in other tweets, Trump tried to deflect attention from questions about whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation - an allegation he has vigorously denied.
Could Trump be so lacking in knowledge about Russian Federation and national security that he does not understand the danger of Putin's attack against America and refuses to lead a condemnation of it or organize a program to defeat it? Nunes' efforts include repeated attacks on the Justice Department and FBI to divert attention from the Russian Federation investigation and lying to the American people to cover up his secret work with the White House to shield Trump.
