Hillary Clinton has recently responded to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s sanctions, which were imposed upon her and twelve other highly visible American officials.
According to TASS, a Russian news agency, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced that sanctions against Clinton and others were made “in response to a series of unprecedented sanctions, [which prohibited] … entry into the United States for top officials of the Russian Federation … among other things.”
In response to Putin’s sanctions, Clinton drolly retorted that she would like to extend her gratitude to the Russian Academy for the “Lifetime Achievement Award” of receiving Russian sanctions.
In addition to Clinton, Russia has sanctioned several other Americans, including the following:Export-Import Bank Chair Reta Jo Lewis; Treasury Deputy Secretary Adewale Adeyemo; Agency for International Development Director Samantha Power; National Security Deputy Assistant Daleep Singh; White House press secretary Jen Psaki; Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair Mark Milley; CIA Director William Burns; National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan; Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin; Secretary of State Antony Blinken; President Joe Biden; and Hunter Biden, the president’s son.
When Psaki was pressed about Russian sanctions in a recent briefing, the press secretary responded that “none of us are planning tourist trips to Russia,” and they also continue to have access to their bank accounts.
“So will forge ahead,” Psaki remarked sarcastically.
Russia has long played a role in numerous political allegations in the United States, including Clinton-fueled rumors regarding Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
At this juncture in time, roughly 68 percent of likely voters consider Special Counsel John Durham’s findings “very important,” per the results of a recent poll from Rasmussen Reports.
These poll results are especially important in light of a straw poll that recently took place at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), wherein 22 percent believe that Clinton is more likely to receive the Democrat Party’s 2024 nomination than President Biden.
