Senate strikes deal to rein in Trump on Russia sanctions
The Senate has clinched a deal reining in President Trump on Russia, according to a key senator involved in the talks.
Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said lawmakers have struck an agreement that includes allowing Congress to weigh in before Trump can lift current sanctions against Russia. He said staffers are now reviewing the legislative language.
"I think we're there. We're going through the [legislative] language in here now, but we've reached an agreement," Corker told a small group of reporters.
He added that the language "definitely" includes congressional review, which would give Congress oversight over the lifting of sanctions, but Corker didn't specify if it includes new sanctions on Moscow
