and when FBI agents meet with fusiongps and the Russian lawyer meets with fusiongps before and after the Trump meeting one has to question the
validity of the claims coming from the left.
Again it is not illegal to meet with foreign nationals.
However if we use your logic on this then I look forward to you supporting criminal charges against Clinton and her team as well for going to Ukraine
and meeting with their officials to get dirt on Trump.
Or do your ethics only run one way and only then when its convenient?
As for the act you would be incorrect. The law in question are actually sanctions and as such a new President has every right to review those
sanctions to help determine foreign policy goals. In case you are unaware the act authorizes certain actions that can be implemented y the President.
Trumps admin reviewed the actions the Obama admin took using the act and as such they can be changed. Per the law Trump sent a memo to congress
advising them of a review of the current sanctions and possible changes to it since several Russian businesses that were initially targeted reached
settlements with the DOJ (initiated under Obama admin).
The act authorizes several executive branch agencies to take actions against specific Russian nationals, financial institutions, etc. In case you are
unaware the President, and not Congress, is the chief diplomat of the United States. As such Congress passes the laws / sanctions and they authorize
the President to act in a specific manner with relations to the law in question.
The President must enact the sanctions, not Congress.
If you are going to make accusations please know what it is you are talking about before hand please.
