Kellyanne Conway Says Trump May Roll-Back Russian Sanctions
Monday, 9 January 2017 President-elect Trump's senior advisor Kellyanne Conway *questioned whether additional investigations are needed* into reports of Russian hacking during the campaign and, during an interview with USA Today, indicated the incoming president would consider *rolling back some of the punitive actions President Obama had ordered* in response.
As USA Today reports,
*"I predict that President Trump will want to make sure that our actions are proportionate to what occurred, based on what we know,"* she told Capital Download. She said the steps Obama took, including ejecting 35 alleged Russian spies, were harsher than those he ordered after reported hacking by China and North Korea and suggested the reason for the difference was political.
*Conway ridiculed a proposal by House and Senate Democrats on Monday to establish a bipartisan, independent commission to investigate the allegations against Russia.* U.S. intelligence agencies last week reported that Moscow, under the direction of President Vladimir Putin, hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, then leaked them in an effort to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton and elect Trump.
*"It's curious and a little bit humorous that Democrats would talk about anything bipartisan ... given how they have vowed to obstruct everything we do,"* she said, saying there already was "a great deal of information out there" about the hacking. "I do find it to be very ironic that the uptick and the hue-and-cry of 'investigation' and 'information' has occurred after the election results are in. ...
*"The fact is, the Democrats became super-duper interested in this entire issue after the election did not go the way they, quote, wanted and the way they expected."**Read more here...
