Senate sanctions bill targets Russian Federation, presidential powers

Senate passes bill to impose new sanctions on Iran Senate Overwhelmingly Passes Bipartisan Iran Sanctions Bill Targeting Revolutionary Guards

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Wednesday called on lawmakers to grant "flexibility" to the White House in dealing with Russian Federation as U.S. Senate overwhelmingly passed new Russian Federation sanction bill.

The Senate voted overwhelmingly Thursday to pass sanctions against the regimes in Iran and Russian Federation, targeting the former for its ballistic missile program and the latter for its aggressive cyber war against the United States.

Sanctions would be placed on Russians who violate human rights, supply weapons to the Bashar al-Asad regime in Syria or who are involved in the Russian defense and intelligence industry. The inquiries raised red flags among Obama administration holdovers at the State Department, who asked Congress to preempt any attempts by Trump to alter the sanctions regime now in place.

However, aides in both the Senate and the House said they expected support for the bill would be strong enough to override a Trump veto if necessary.

Amendment 232 has been attached to Bill 722 imposing sanctions against Iran, which the Senate is now debating.

Additionally, the legislation imposes terrorism-related sanctions on Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, an arm of the regime tasked with exporting its terrorist ideology. The two dissenting votes were Sen.

The legislation sets up a review process that would require Trump to get Congress' approval before taking any action to ease, suspend or lift any sanctions on Russian Federation.


Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told CNN that "we moved to make the Congress, not the President, the final arbiter of sanctions relief when necessary". Rand Paul, R-Ky. and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. voting against it.

"If the president doesn't sign a bill that passes the Senate with 90 votes, the president will learn yet another lesson about what the public wants", Brown said.

The sanctions would codify existing economic restrictions and place new ones in an effort to economically harm specific individuals and Russia's economy. "But look, this bill is going to become law", Corker told reporters on Wednesday.

The legislation was filed as an amendment to an Iran sanctions bill.

A day earlier, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson made a plea for patience from lawmakers in relation to Russian Federation, saying the administration feared being "handcuffed" by the new measure.

Sanctions are authorized on Russia's mining and shipping sectors as well, and the government is required to study the US economy's exposure to Russian state-owned enterprises.
