Obama took the steps he did concerning these compounds because Russia meddled in our election.
We’ve already established that you think a foreign power influencing our election is just okey-dokey fine, as long as it’s in favor of your god. But would you feel the same if they meddled in favor of Hillary Clinton? Please convince me that if Clinton was elected, and the CIA, FBI, and NSA all had “high confidence” this was due to Russian meddling, that this would be just fine with you, and there would be no need for any kind of retaliation.
And while you’re at it, you might explain why you think it’s a great idea for Russia to have properties in our country they can conduct espionage on us from.
