Kellyanne Conway Says Trump May Roll-Back Russian Sanctions

Tyler Durden's picture

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."

Met a guy from Germany today on the beach here in Maui who told the US is bringing trainloads of vehicles, tanks, rockets, troops, etc...through Germany heading towards the Baltic countries.

Are these madmen are trying to start WWIII before Trump takes office?

It is our DUTY to make this information viral.

Obama has spent $20 trillion to bankers, wall street, the MIC, BLM and the FSA.

Looks like The Trumpster may roll back some of this wasteful spending.

Most of all, "Lock her up!" [along with Soros!]


Go Trump!

Great place for her to focus instead of accuracy.

"Unprecedented to have a president that is not a typical politician"

Oh, really?

George Washington

Zachary Taylor

US Grant


usurper is arguable for the list as voting "present" at 98 of the one hundred times [did not attend the other two] is neither political experience nor a typical politician

Forget the "Hack" which was actually a LEAK and his name was Seth Rich.

High Crimes & Treason have been committed specifically by Pure Evil war Criminal Psychopaths Hillary Clinton, her husband, daughter, Debbie Wasserman & the DNC.

The energy spent attempting to continue a Scripted False Narrative based on a PsyOp lie should be spent focusing on the aforementioned.

The Lawlessness continues, unfettered.

When will klapper and othes open an "investigation" into foreign election interference by Saudi Arabia funding Hillary Clinton's campaign?

Kellyanne looks good in that pink dress.

Of course she'd look good without it also.

I like pink. "Think Pink" - an old tag line for fiberglass insulation -- has a different or subliminal meaning to me.

Oh get a grip, you prudes.

As the old Chinese proverb goes, "It's all pink on the inside".

Conway is a hit how ever one looks at her. The way she remains cool and calm and 100% logical in the face of blatant lies, propaganda and defamation is outstanding.

And I agree, she is beautiful also.

All these beautiful [and graceful] women in the wh for a change---Melania, Invanka, Conway, etc.

And they are all American!!!

What a difference an election makes!

Good. The sanctions were the infantile actions of a failed administration.

Funny that the DNC adopted Communism, and Russia adopted (at least a quasi) form of Capitalism.

DeeZ_nutZ's picture

you are a dumbshit.  there is no capitalism in russian.  none.  is a dictatorship with elements of free trade to keep the illusion going for plebs.

Jethro's picture

Go chase cars on the highway tard.

cowdiddly's picture

No your the dipshit. A dictator is someone who seizes power. Russia has had electons since 91. Putin and Medvedev were both elected. Saudi Arabia= dictatorship, North Korea= dictatorship. spot the diff Ace?

Turn off CNN propaganda and get a clue. Just because Hillary and McCain keep saying it does not make it a fact. Just more of her and John's endless stream of lies they hope you sucker into believing. Apparently it worked like a charm.

If you do a trade do you give it away or make a bit of money if you can?

Makes no difference what society you live in in the world it is all the same.

If you don't make a profit you starve!

Got fuck all to do with dictatorships or neocons ... the trade is the 100% constant.

I'm not sure how the platform of suckling up to bankers, big pharma, big ag, big alternative energy, etc., all while using the military to destabilize countries and further corporate interests (as opposed the interest of your own citizens) is any way Communism. They are fascists as far as I can tell. They kind of passed on the Communism when they kicked Bernie out....

Jethro's picture

Fair point! Communism in the practiced sense, rather than the philosophical sense. Communism has typically been practiced like an oligarchy at best, and like a gang at worst. The DNC-side would love single payer, and many other SJW pet projects overtly, while expanding their wallets with the things you listed, covertly.

well, in that case, just let China take Taiwan back and don't bitch about nothing, the trampon

"I predict that President Trump will want to make sure that our actions are proportionate to what occurred, based on what we know," 

In that case consider the sanctions as good as already rolled back ...

Who was that masked man's picture

Well, of course the sanctions need to be rolled back, they are totally uncalled for and were always more about Obama trying to make Trump's presidency difficult than about Russia.  Even if Russia did hack into the DNC emails, America should be grateful for exposing the depth of corruption in the Clinton campaign and in the Clinton Foundation.

Not a bad rack tucked into that pink sweater dress there (so I'm inclined to agree ~ lol)

Pink sweater:  Two thumbs up.  Blue sweater, not so much.

Blue sweater?


WTF? If you're talking about the hag interviewer in the foto. That's not blue, that's a full on PURPLE CHAIRMAN MAO Hillary Clinton garb, 'dyed' just slightly more blueBERRY (like the fat little girl in Willy Wonka) to decieve the public .
