Scarborough: Russians Received So Much Attention There’s ‘No Hope’ Sanctions Will Ever Be Lessened
SCARBOROUGH: "The thing is, Richard Haass, for the Russians it’s problematic because at this stage they’ve received so much attention that there is no hope that sanctions are ever going to be lessened. McCain and the Senate will jump in immediately and codify it and stop it."
HAASS: "That's the irony of all. If the idea was to somehow create a context in which you could begin to dramatically reshape relations with Russia, it’s hard to imagine a context which makes it less likely to do it because your motives are now being scrutinized and you've created a context where people would be thinking you’re doing it for the wrong reasons."
