Senate sends Russia sanctions bill to Trump’s desk

July 28, 2017
Vladimir PutinSenators are sending legislation slapping new sanctions on Moscow to President Trump’s desk, setting up a potential showdown with the White House over Russia.
Senators voted 98-2 on the bill, which would give Congress the ability to block Trump from lifting the Russia sanctions. It also includes new penalties against Iran and North Korea.
Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) voted against the bill, with Sanders saying on Twitter that “following Trump’s comments that he won’t recertify Iran’s compliance with the nuclear agreement I worry new sanctions could endanger it.”
The move marks congressional Republicans’ first significant rebuke of Trump’s foreign policy, where the administration’s warmer stance toward Russia has drawn heavy skepticism from both parties.

    How is it that there has been NO concrete evidence of Russian interferance in the election. All we hear is Russia, Russia, and all sorts of collusion accusations by the Trump group. If you looked back in the O’Bama presidency there is plenty of evidence for charges of “giving aid and comfort to the enemy” by the Democrats.

    I’m becoming more and more sorry that I voted for Rand Paul for Senate.He has become an obstructionist.What a shame that Republicans cannot get their act together and are throwing away the chance of a lifetime to save our Country from the Liberal Scum who are trying to destroy it.I will not make that mistake again.He’s done as far as I am concerned.

      The republicans are making lots of mistakes. I don’t like, or trust DemonRATS, but all the crap the republicans are doing, will work in the favor of DemonRATS in the midterms! I hope I’m wrong.
