  1. All this should make a good footnote in the…… discretionary enforcement of phony human rights standards…. That actually ought to be the title of a book. LOL

  2. The reply most likely will be as trump said “I asked them and they said they didn’t do it” – he has also said our intel has no absolute proof, only their opinions and no proof. He apparently needs a video of the obscene murder which I understood actually does exist but he does not want to watch such a horrible scene. He will continue to ignore the requests from Congress.

    So, this letter is addressed to Pompeo “Your administration is currently not in compliance […] we urge you to fix the situation immediately” and “The administration must immediately comply with its obligations under the Global Magnitsky Act and specifically update Congress on its efforts …” or what? Define “immediately”.

    What happens if The Administration continues to ignore Congress and will not go further with response/comments resulting from Intel’s investigation?

  3. Better, yes, but I think mine’s more realistic.

  4. The US is officially a banana republic.
