The Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control on Monday said it took action against Russians who attempted to influence the 2018 U.S. midterm elections, but said there was no indication that foreign actors were able to compromise election infrastructure that would have prevented voting, changed vote counts or disrupted the tallying of votes. "Treasury is targeting the private planes, yacht and associated front companies of Yevgeniy Prigozhin, the Russian financier behind the Internet Research Agency and its attempts to subvert American democratic processes. Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of American democracy, and we will use our authorities against anyone seeking to undermine our processes and subversively influence voters," said Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin in a statement. The Treasury Department said all property and interests in property of Prigozhin and six members of the Internet Research Agency that are within the possession of U.S. persons are blocked, and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with them.

2. Ho hum!

Yes, great timing from the MisAdminstration of Benedict Manson the Orange.

Reflect and deflect away, but the arrow points back at ya'.

Nice try, though, but transparent nonetheless.

4. Too little too late. Window dressing. Part of the coverup. For propaganda purposes.


"See! We're tough on the Russians! Really really tough! Believe me! It's yuge!"

6. Probably Trump thinking "I will sanction Russia and hope it stop me from being impeached.".

Problem is what he was involved in with Russia is not what the impeachment inquiry is about unless of course he is afraid something will be discovered that is likely to cause that to happen.

7. Treasury has no standing to claim that interference had no impact on that election

or the one prior. The FEC currently is recommending a host of changes to prepare for the 2020 elections but Rs are stone-walling as usual.
