It took less than 2 weeks with Donald Trump in office as the President of the United States. The Trump administration has begun to lift sanctions on Russia.
Although the Trump administration has asked the U.S. public to forget about it, and although Senate Republicans have refused to investigate it, the nation has just emerged from an election in which multiple Trump administration officials met with Russians, and then Russian spy agencies engaged in a hacking and cyberpropaganda campaign to get Donald Trump elected President.
On February 2, 2017, the Trump administration ordered a lifting of sanctions so that U.S. companies can begin to conduct transactions, not just with any old Russian business, but particularly with the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), the successor to the old Soviet KGB. To fit the times, read all about it in the Russian state-controlled TASS news wires. You can also read about it in the UK Independent.
In other news, it has been 990 days since Donald Trump first promised to release his tax returns.
