     A funny thing happened on the way to the quest to prove that the Trump White House is too pro-Russian.  First, a shoot-down of a Russian fighter jet in Syria a few months ago — in response to the Russian jet firing on U.S-backed, anti-Assad rebels — and now, a Russia sanctions bill that POTUS Trump has promised to sign.  Putin made the announcement today, Sunday, after Congress unanimously passed a new, tougher sanctions law to be imposed against Russia.  The nearly 800 U.S. diplomats will have to leave Moscow by September 1, 2017; and will result in both Moscow and Washington having the same amount of foreign diplomats in each others county — or roughly each with roughly 445 diplomatic personnel left.  A new ‘Cold War’ seems to be setting in — so much for those who think this White House is doing Putin’s bidding.  V/R, RCP
