Feinstein: President Trump Must Follow Law, Impose Russian Sanctions

Washington-Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today issued the following statement after the Trump administration announced it would not impose sanctions on Russia that Congress overwhelmingly passed last year:

'President Trump's refusal to implement bipartisan sanctions that were overwhelmingly passed by Congress and signed into law by the president himself shows his unwillingness to confront Russia for its continued attacks on our democracy.

'The law is clear: the president must sanction individuals with financial ties to Russia's defense and intelligence sectors or waive them by certifying that Russia has reduced cyberattacks against the United States. The president has done neither.

'The president's decision is especially troubling considering Russia's ongoing intrusions into our domestic affairs and CIA Director Pompeo's confirmation that Russia is preparing to interfere with our upcoming elections.

'By not imposing sanctions now, the president is placing Russian interests over the rule of law.'
