Russia Sanctions the Johns, McCain Boehner and Others

Jon Scott on Fox News just announced that Russia has put “sanctions” on America’s most prominent Johns, McCain and Boehner. They can no longer visit the restoring Soviet Union. Their bank accounts in the Motherland will seized. Sober news [sarc]. While there has been speculation that Putin would issue his own list of retaliations against America, I don’t see anything on the InterWebs but speculation, but did hear Jon Scott announce it moments ago. When I find the printed story, I’ll link it here.

Vladimir Putin and Puppy

Vladimir Putin

At the top of the list in Congress, diplomatic sources told the site, is Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, who recently co-authored a resolution criticizing Russia’s invasion of Crimea….

Sen. John McCain from Arizona, who traveled to Kiev last weekend to meet with Ukrainian leaders, told The Daily Beast that he expects to be on the list and is happy about it….“I guess I’m going to have to try to withdraw my money from my secret account in St. Petersburg,” he joked.
