Russia is a regional power with a lot of nuclear weapons, 9 time zones long, and it freezes solid during winter months (they’ve been hoping for the miracle of global warming that has yet to deliver them from permafrost). Their gross national product is far less than that of California – somewhere around the GNP of the State of Texas. Their population is decreasing and they pay white women (Great Russians) to have more children, stay home, and raise them (it’s considered to be racist in the USA).
There are two lists, one is public and the other is classified (double secret probation). Neither list includes the Clintons, who had extensive financial dealings with Russia while she was Secretary of State, including the yet-to-be-fully-investigatigated Uranium One scandal. The FBI says they’re on it. Don’t hold your breath. There is a long list of other American companies and billionaires such as Presidential hopeful (for 2020) Michael Bloomberg. File that one under “All pigs are equal but some are more equal than others”.
If we’re going to haze oligarchs, the Clintons need to be on the list.
The Russians are in a position to be helpful to the US regarding China – a much larger threat. Why do we treat China so gingerly? They lay down a lot more grease in the halls of Congress than Russia does. When you consider that a lot of that cheddar finds its origin in the US – they’re bribing us with our own money…figure that one out.
