    I'm flabbergasted! How is it possible that the congress with an huge majority voted at least 6 month ago to implement new sanctions on Russia, which was eventually (under pressure) signed by Trump, but still has not been implemented?

    Thus in other words, the signature of this President means nothing. At Monday night, the time to implement ran out; Trump said "It is no longer needed" with that statement he overruled his own "signature" as well the Congress. I absolutely don't understand how such is possible without consent of the Congress. Actually he did "obstruct" the law again. Who is going to do something about that? The list of criminal activities by Trump and recorded by Mueller only becomes longer.

    Dutch -- Yes I also do not understand, but perhaps should not be surprised. The Trump supporters are on a mission to stop the Mueller investigation and Nunes is doing his part to undermine the legitimacy of Rosenstein, the FBI and the Justice Department. The only person really standing in Nunes et al way is Rosenstein. Get rid of him and replace him with a Trump crony and it's a game shifter in Trump's favor.

    Trump has them all believing that the Russian investigation is a hoax. The vote if it were taken today to impose sanctions on Russia would be much closer. It just shows how much progress Trump has made in twisting people's minds. No Republicans will speak out against Trump's "non-actions".

    His approval rating just went up again.

    Yes saw that last night. Heard nothing about potential actions by the Dems but don't get this. I'm not the best with how it works, but is there something in place for these kinds of situations? Probably not, I bet this is the first time something like this has happened.

    What has happened between the vote and now?? Is there blackmail, coercion, or just plain idiocy among the R's? It's one of the reasons I'm not sure the country can survive this president, because a form of autocracy has taken hold in reality, even though it's not formally being called that yet.

    The latest news on AM Joy was that the heads Russian spy agencies met with Pompeo in D.C. According, to the news Trump arranged that meeting somehow. Indeed very weird. I hope this meeting was recorded and a copy was sent to Mueller. Also it was made clear that the original sanctions list approved and voted on by the Congress was drastically changed related to who or what would be sanctioned. What games are being played?

    Hearing this story it is clear that Trump never wanted anymore sanctions and does everything to please the Russians. In other words WHAT HAS HE TO HIDE????? I hope and pray that Mueller finds out what "ties" Trump to Russia.
