Senate Approves Measure Limiting Trump's Power Over Russia Sanctions

18 Juin 2017

"It's time to respond to Russia's attack on American democracy with strength, with resolve, with common objective, and with action", Sen.

"I'm not about to authorize new spending - $250 million or a lesser sum or a greater sum - to do that again without adequate restraints in place to make sure that these global organizations aren't going to blow this money or aren't going to spend it in a way that's harmful to the interests of the American people".

"Essentially, we would ask for the flexibility to turn the heat up when we need to, but also to ensure we have the ability to maintain a constructive dialogue", Tillerson said.

I'm out of here now.

The Trump administration is "committed to existing sanctions" and won't take a position on the Senate legislation, S. 722, until the House acts, spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters at the White House.

Mr Saunders said that Senate Democrats were not ready to move on Iran sanctions without the Russian amendment so the addition of it shows a "political understanding" between the parties.

"We moved to make the Congress, not the President, the final arbiter of sanctions relief when necessary", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said.

The bill would require a congressional review if President Donald Trump attempts to ease or end penalties against Moscow.

The Russia sanctions measure was added as an amendment to an Iranian sanctions bill, after a deal was struck between the heads of the Senate Foreign Relations and Banking Committees.

Senator Lamar Alexander voted for the legislation to impose tougher sanctions on Iran and expand sanctions against Russian Federation.

The measure is meant to punish Russian Federation for meddling in the 2016 U.S. election, its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region and support for Syria's government in the six-year-long civil war. While keeping those sanctions in place, the amendment expands sanctions to Russia's all-important energy sector, including its railways and mining operations. The document concerns restrictions that the Obama administration introduced in late 2016 against Russian citizens suspected of being involved in cyber attacks on USA targets.

Corker, too, sounded pleased that the bill effectively ties a president s hands when it comes to unwinding certain sanctions on Russian Federation.

On Thursday, the US Senate voted overwhelmingly for a bill imposing sanctions on Iran over its missile program among other things.

Through an amendment, senators added the Russian Federation sanctions, to add weight to their concerns over Russia's support of the "murderous Syrian regime", military intrusion in Ukraine and "malicious" cyber activity, Ernst said.

The penalties have been criticised by Austria and Germany for promoting U.S. economic interests.
