The Senate’s bipartisan bill (S.722) on sanctions for Russia and Iran heads to the House. The bill codifies the Obama sanctions, beefs up sanctions on cyber activity and weapons sales, and adds new sanctions for human rights violations. Critically, it gives Congress, not Trump’s administration, the right to review and reject any lifting of sanctions against Russia.
Script: I’m calling to urge Representative […] to support the efforts to enforce Congressional oversight for any lifting of sanctions against Russia and Iran. It’s clear that we cannot trust the Trump administration to do the right thing.
