Skip to comments.Senators move to limit Trump on Russia sanctions
Posted on 02/08/2017 12:30:09 PM PST by ColdOne
A bipartisan group of senators is moving to check President Trump on Russia by bolstering congressional oversight before he can lift sanctions. Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) introduced legislation Wednesday setting up a period of congressional oversight before Trump could roll back financial penalties.
The legislation, known as the Russia Sanctions Review Act, would require Trump to notify Congress before he lifts sanctions tied to the invasion of Ukraine or Russia's meddling in the White House race.
To provide relief at this time would send the wrong signal to Russia and our allies who face Russian oppression. Sanctions relief must be earned, not given," said Graham, a frequent GOP critic of the president.
Lawmakers would have 120 days to pass a joint resolution of disapproval blocking Trump from lifting the sanctions. Trump also would not be able to lift sanctions while Congress was reviewing the proposal.

The usual republicans.
Never did it to Obama.
Trump has to sign this right?
We don’t buy that much from Russia
They’re not even pretending they’re anything but RAT moles anymore, are they?
Never did that to 0bama
She is running for reelection in 2018
The usual suspects from the Pubs.
exactly the wrong thing to try to do right now, imho
but then again, its McCain and the rest of the RINOgang
Donald is gonna have a MOST DIFFICULT time getting much of Obama’s damage fixed.......unless we can get him a much improved Senate in the next election
Aren't these the same ones that were paid by Soros?
And doesn't Russia want Soros extradited for prosecution?
I’m almost betting this is Trump’s idea.
The have a bad taste in their mouths after letting themselves be used as toilet paper by Barack Obama for 8 years.
Now to prove to themselves that they haven’t been completely given up their manhood and turned into eunuchs they are joining the Libtards and rising up against President Trump.
Can we just shorthand Linda, McSlime and Bubio to be the Three Stooges?
Several dems and the Three Stooges are whatever the last thing is.
Was the “veto” outlawed?
We need to bombard these bastards...email address?
Five days ago Trump said Russia sanctions would remain in place.
Those on the Soros payroll strike again.
These people are pitiful.
Who runs the US? The US President who was elected by the people or money from George Soros and the muzzie Brohood?
It’s time to declare Soros and the muzzie brohood enemy combatants and kick them out of our country....freeze their assests and not allow them or any businesses connected to them in here.
Those who take money from them will be breaking the law.
Trump could not just veto this?
