• News Alert: Trump signs Russia sanctions

    From CNN Breaking News@VERT to no-reply@siteservices.cnn.com on Wed Aug 2 08:10:54 2017
    President Donald Trump signed into law legislation that levies new sanctions against Russia and restricts Trump's own ability to ease sanctions[1] in place against Moscow, a White House official said.

    The bill is one of the first major pieces of legislation that was sent to Trump's desk, and it represents a rebuke of the President by giving Congress new veto power to block him from removing Russia sanctions.

    Even before Trump signed the bill, the measure prompted Russian President Vladimir Putin to retaliate against the US over the new sanctions, which Congress levied over Russian interference in the 2016 US election, as well as Russia's annexation of Crimea and aggression in Syria.
