house Bill H. Res. 546

Should the House Express its Disapproval of Russia’s Inclusion in Future G-7 Summits Until its Respects Democracy & Borders?

Argument in favor

The Russian Federation’s invasion of Crimea, aggression in Ukraine, and meddling in U.S. elections speak to a fundamental disregard for other countries’ sovereignty and democratic norms. As long as Russia fails to respect other nations’ territorial or democratic integrity, it shouldn’t be allowed to participate in the G-7, which is a meeting of the most influential nations in the world. Letting Russia back into the G-7 now, before it improves its behavior, would send the message that the world’s most influential nations will allow bad behavior to slide.

No to Russia participating in any aspect of the G7. Putin would certainly see any lack of resolve by our country as a sign of weakness. Russia continues it’s expansionism, violation of treaties, militarization and clandestine interference with democracies. While our president and the RNC have shown little interest of addressing these atrocities, our country should not. Putin has been quite successful in his efforts to disrupt NATO by forming alliances with Turkey, aided by trump, and the release of humiliating videos of Russian forces laughing as they took over our bases days after their abandonment; that trump without any guidance requested nor accepted from military leadership, hastily and immediately abandoned after a phone call from Turkey- thus leaving a long standing and trusted ally open to slaughter by a Turkish mercenary forces consisting, in part, of Al Quida and ISIS members out for revenge. Trump allowed Turkey, a NATO ally with critical details of NATO joint strike fighters specifications, to purchase Russian anti-aircraft missile systems and bring Russian technicians into Turkish defense facilities- potentially giving NATO aircraft details to the Russians, the country whose expansionist threats caused the formation of NATO in the first place. My god, these actions alone, should be impeachable all by themselves. Any way, it is important that Putin realize that trump and his RNC enablers are not the United States- and that the Congress and the people of our country are still resolved to hold Russia to account for expansionism, treaty violations and attempts to disrupt democratic processes.

The only reason that we need a resolution like this is because we now have a Russian agent in the White House. Everything Trump has done since elected has benefited Russia not America. He has weakened NATO. He has turned over our military bases in Syria to Russia. He has betrayed our military allies. He has stolen $280 billion from the military budget for a useless wall that he originally said Mexico would pay for. He has disrespected our military leaders. He ignores our intelligence community and parrot’s false conspiracy theories made up by Putin. The real tragedy is the betrayal of American people by the Republican party. The GOP was supposed to be the party of the conservatives. I thought it was the party that would defend our constitution and our country from totalitarian countries like Russia. But it looks like Republicans in congress have abandoned their values and turned into a branch of Putin’s party, The United Russian party.

The Russians were expelled because of their invasion of Crimea. They continue to meddle in our elections and the Middle East. As long as Russia fails to respect other nations’ territorial or democratic integrity, it shouldn’t be allowed to participate in the G-7, which is a meeting of the most influential nations in the world. Letting Russia back into the G-7 now, before it improves its behavior, would send the message that the world’s most influential nations will allow bad behavior to slide.

Argument opposed

The Russian Federation — as one of the world’s largest and most important countries — should rightfully be part of the G-7 summit. Expelling Russia from the G-7 in response to its aggressive actions in Ukraine didn’t change its behavior, but did make the G-7 less effective as a meeting of the world’s most important leaders. Allowing Russia to return to the G-7 will make the summit more effective, as it’ll ensure that the G-7 summit brings all the key nations of the world together.

    Is the US going to be excluded as well? Since Trump took office and the party of Trump took power no one is safe from his corruption. Country or person. Why in the world would anyone trust the US. If we aren’t trying tp blackmail them we’re stabbing them in the back. Right now we can’t ensure our own freedom.

    Each country must have the right to have sovereignty over this territory and any threat to that the United States should lead the way. By telling Russia that it should not mess in any country’s sovereignty , the United States send a clear message of democracy.

    Hell, yes! Putin invaded the Ukraine and stole their territory. This was in violation of agreements/treaties and just plain not right!. No way should Russia be allowed back, until such time as they return what they stole back to Ukraine - with a nice, hefty fine, too. Even then, MAYBE.

    Is it okay for a sitting president to bribe a foreign government into investigating a political rival for personal gain, in return for aid already approved by Congress.? Our founding fathers didn’t think so and planned for it. Giuliani in talks to be paid by Ukraine official, while they were working together to attack trumps political opponent. Donald McGhan ordered to comply with subpoena. Bolton’s next:) Devin Nunez met with Ukrainians and directly pushed for Biden investigations. The meetings were set up by Giuliani’s Russian criminal friend Lev Parnas. Sondland was on a “Domestic Political Errand.” Was there a quid pro quo? Sondland, “Yes”. “Everyone was in the loop”. David Holmes, testified that Ukrainian officials “came to understand what was required” in order to get military assistance and a meeting with trump. U.S. ambassador to Ukraine felt threatened by trumps remarks and was threatened by trump while testifying. Long time friend and confidant of trump Roger Stone, found guilty of lying and witness tampering. trump has asked the Supreme Court to keep his taxes hidden, so no more separation of powers in the government. trump sought status of Ukraine investigations showing aid was depended on the investigations themselves. trump complains that witnesses all speak from 2nd and 3rd hand knowledge yet ordered Mulvaney not to testify. Laura Cooper testified that the Pentagon sought clarification from the trump administration about the hold up of the Ukraine aide and received none. A second person has said they reported sexual misconduct involving a former doctor who’s been accused of sexually abusing nearly 300 men over a 17-year period to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his staff felt they would not get the millions of dollars in aid money without publicly committing to launch the investigations Trump wanted. Senior trump administration officials considered resigning en masse in a ‘midnight self massacre’. State Department official says Giuliani was engaged in a campaign ‘full of lies and incorrect information’ about former ambassador. trump has issued pardons for two soldiers being tried for war crimes and returned rank to a soldier who took a selfie with a dead body. trump to pay $2 million for charity foundation misuse. trump wanted attorney general Barr to hold a news conference saying the president broke no laws on Ukraine call. White House official who heard trumps call with Ukraine president was told to keep quite. White House lawyer moved transcript of trump call to classified server after Ukraine adviser raised alarms. He has politicized our national security and has chosen Putin and other dictators over our own congress and security agencies. “I stated to Amb. Sondland that his statements were inappropriate, that the request to investigate Biden and his son had nothing to do with national security, and that such investigations were not something the NSC was going to get involved in or push,” Vindman adds. Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, a top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council is testifying that trump demanded that a foreign government investigate an American citizen in exchange for Congresses approved aide. Just reached a $984 billion deficit while he lines his pockets with our tax dollars and foreign money at his resorts. $400 million in aide money was withheld from Ukraine back in August and Ukrainian leaders were told it was not red tape, that they needed to talk to Chief of Staff Mulvaney to resolve it and make a CNN statement about Biden in order to receive said aide. Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, is running a shadow foreign policy in Ukraine that circumvents U.S. officials and career diplomats in order to personally benefit President trump. Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas. Look them up. North Korea just tested a submarine launched missile. Deserted our Kurdish allies who have been fighting ISIS with us and now are being slaughtered. All because he has a tower in Istanbul. “The Americans betrayed us. We do not trust them anymore,” she added. These used to be our Kurdish allies that stood against ISIS. He is refusing to comply with the law. He is using the power of the presidency to withhold aide to one of the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet in exchange for political favors in order to sway the 20/20 election. He is acting like a criminal and threatening the life of the whistleblower. Mr. America first is sending troops to Saudi Arabia in support of a murdering dictator who spends millions at his hotels and resorts. Corey Lewandowski testified to congress that trump ordered him to obstruct justice. He is blocking information that pertains to the safety of our country from reaching congress. He has been threatening NOAA, a federal agency, with punishment if they do not disavow the truth and side with his lies. He invited the Taliban to Camp David the week of 9/11. He is a #PussyAssBitch He’s doctoring weather maps to try and prove he’s not an idiot. He has stayed at trump properties 293 days in 3 years, that’s our tax dollars going directly into his pocket. He took money from military daycares to pay for a wall that won’t work and no one wants. The Vice President and the Attorney General are both spending tax payer dollars on trump hotels, lining his pockets and currying his favor. He has privately instructed aides to skirt laws and regulations to get the wall built faster — and told them he will pardon them if necessary. He is pressuring a government agency to give a contract for his wall to a company whose chief executive is a donor to one of his top GOP allies in Congress. He took hundreds of millions from 127 different projects (FEMA being one of those) for his wall. He thinks nuking a hurricane is an idea. He is host the next G-7 at one of his own resorts. Again our tax dollars paying him directly. He taunted Iran by tweeting a classified image of an Iranian rocket that had exploded, thereby potentially compromising U.S. intelligence capabilities. His own company would save millions from the low interest rates he is demanding. He was going to give you tax cuts through your paychecks but decided not to. This year the richest of us payed less in taxes than the rest of us. He is destroying the economy with HIS trade war. We will soon average a 1.2 trillion deficit. He is repeating NRA talking points on background checks so expect no action taken regardless of the fact there has been 27 arrested over threats to commit mass attacks since El Paso( NOT TOLEDO). He made fun of republicans being afraid of the NRA and then caved after a 30 minute phone conversation with them. He bragged about indefinite child detention because it brings families together. He is refusing flue shots, that protect us all(google influenza pandemic), to immigrant children. He is attacking fellow congresswomen in really disgusting ways and making anti-Semitic remarks about Jews calling them disloyal. He thinks he’s the chosen one based on a conspiracy theory web sight. He has: Obstructed Justice. Is profiting from the Presidency. Colluded - They had a meeting & lied about it. Advocated political & police violence. Abuse of power. Engaging in reckless behavior. Persecuting political opponents. Attacking the free press. Violating immigrants Right to Due Process. Violating campaign finance laws. Racist: Speaks directly to and often tweeting straight from white supremacists. Calls them very fine people. Told fellow congresswomen to go back where they came from. Called them shit hole countries. Called them murderers and rapists. Calls her Pocahontas. Took out full page adds calling for the death of five innocent black kids in New York, 1989. Literally has said in an interview he has Hitlers speeches, My New Order in his nightstand. Our Money: Spent campaign finance money on hush payments to silence a porn star he had an affair with in order to hide it from the voters. Has spent over $100 million of our tax dollars playing golf at his own golf courses. Has never divested from companies and advertises and profits off the White House. Was going to cut Medicaid and Medicare funding to pay for the tax cuts he gave to the rich. Is actively destroying farmers lives with his trade wars that we all know only hurts our pockets not Chinas. Has made the lives of every truck driver across America as well as our own, more dangerous by removing safety regulations that only benefits the pockets of the CEOs of those companies. Has removed any and all protections we had in place from work safety, environment, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights and gives that power back to the CEOs, oil companies, men and old white men. Saudi funded lobbyist rented 500 rooms at a trump hotel he never divested from right after he became president. Wonder why? Sexual Predator: Accused by more than 20 women of molestation and rape. Bragged about said molestation on tape. Has cheated on all three wives (see above). Has made sexual remarks on camera about his daughter. Belittles and bully’s women. Not even sure he’s aware he has two daughters. Idiot: Has allowed North Korea to grow there nuclear weapons program. Took the side of Putin over America’s own security agencies on the national stage. Lacks the intelligence and facts needed to communicate on a global level much less national one. Makes policy decisions based on FOX media. Lies when speaks. Doesn’t believe in science and quite often displays his ignorance of it. Russia: Lied about meetings with Russians. Lied about a trump tower Moscow. Personal attorney Michael Cohen (same guy who broke campaign finance laws under trumps direction) had contacts with russian officials. National Security aide Flynn resigned over Russian contacts. Jeff Sessions recused himself because of Russian contacts. Manafort resigned because of Russian contacts. Campaign foreign policy adviser Papadopoulos met with Russians then bragged about it to Australians who then turned that info over to our FBI. Sixteen campaign officials had contacts with Russia and at least nine others new about it. Russian mobster lived in trump tower. trump casino was flagged 106 times for lax money laundering standards and same Russian frequently stayed at trump casino. Has been selling real estate to Russians for years. It really is surprising how many connections to Russians this man has. Rick Scott, Marco Rubio, Bill Posey You are my representatives. OLC policy: The indictment or criminal prosecution of a criminal investigation of a sitting President would unconstitutionally undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions. It’s time to do your job. You swore an oath to this country, it’s people and me to uphold the constitution. The president has never upheld that oath. How do you want to be remembered?

    Since our President is clearly trying his best to help Russia to be readmitted to the the G-7 meetings without any regard for the Russian invasion of Crimea and their continuing war with the Ukraine, as well as attempts to block key water routes to Ukrainian ports. In order to prevent our President from ignoring those violations of International law and doing all he can to allow Russia to once again to enter the G-7 meetings, this legislation must be passed.

    Russia does not suooort the territorial integrity of its neighbors, and since the President won’t, Congress, through HRes 546 should stand up to Russia even though a simple resolution is merely a statement. President Putin knows well the feelings of most Americans. Russia should play no part in the G7, hello... this would reconstitute the G8, and being the G8 is exactly what President Putin is quietly pushing for by proxy through President Trump and with the force of whatever he’s holding over his head. Please support HRes 546 with your vote.

    On what basis should Russia be included? By the word of the Putin asset in the White House? (Let Trump resign and build a Trump Tower in any Russia City they let him. Fat Chance!) The World's Top Ten Economies Ranked by GDP 1. United States. 2. China. 3. Japan. 4. Germany. 5. United Kingdom. 6. France. 7. India. 8. Italy. 9. Brazil 10. Canada In an optimistic accounting Russia rank may be 11. The current government of Russia is not worthy of having an official voice. Less so since their help putting Trump into office. As an economic power, Russia does not have the resources of the old USSR. Russia is, possibly, an up and coming second rate economy. Let them become a true democracy, Let them lose their tough guy criminality so easily and credibly stereotyped in popular media. Let THEM clear up their Corruptocracy.
