Here We Go! Obama’s NATIONAL EMERGENCY by Executive Order, Expels 35 Diplomats from US
Thirty-five Russian diplomats have been expelled from the US, according to a senior official. President Obama described those expelled as “intelligence operatives,” also announcing the closure of two Russian compounds, in New York and Maryland.
The Russian diplomats would be given 72 hours to leave US soil, the official said on condition of anonymity.
The Russian staff will also be denied access to the New York and Maryland compound as of noon on Friday, the source added.
