Sen. Angus King: Investigation Into Russian Collusion 'Not Over'

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 03:52

The bill now moves on to the House, and it must eventually be signed into law by President Trump.

Asked last week about the potential Russian sanctions provisions, Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the administration was "committed to existing sanctions" that were imposed related to Russia's incursions into Ukraine.

Sen. (D-Ohio) told Politico that he has heard the Trump administration is asking House members to "slow and block" the legislation.

"We believe that the existing executive branch sanctions regime is the best tool for compelling Russian Federation to fulfill its commitments, and the administration will continue to work with Congress to ensure that we pursue the best course of action", she said. "I applaud the courage of a number of my Republican colleagues who said no to the administration and did the right thing for the country to keep a foreign power out of our elections".


Despite allegations by the U.S. intelligence community that Moscow played a role in the presidential vote last November, Trump has supported improving relations with America's former Cold War foe. It is meant primarily to punish Russian Federation for its alleged interference in the 2016 election.

The Senate voted overwhelmingly last week to impose tough sanctions against Russian Federation for meddling in the US election, and Saturday Vladimir Putin responded.

"We'll have a hearing on that this week, and that could ultimately be the most unsafe part of this". It includes language that would prevent President Trump from lifting the sanctions without congressional approval.

However, Republican Senator Marco Rubio said it was the State Department that was concerned about the sanctions and not Trump.
