US Senate to pass Russia sanctions bill
The US Senate plans to pass House legislation sanctioning Russia, ensuring it will reach President Donald Trump's desk this summer.
Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker announced he has signed off on a House-passed bill that sanctions Russia and Iran as well as North Korea. Corker had been holding up Senate endorsement of the House bill because, he said, senators wanted input on the North Korea sanctions, the Washington Examiner reported.
Corker said that the House has agreed to "expeditiously consider and pass enhancements to the North Korea language, which multiple members of the Senate hope to make in the very near future."
