House Democrats on Wednesday announced a bill geared toward preventing President Donald Trump from relaxing sanctions against Russia.
Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), the House minority whip, announced the legislation at a press conference along with Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). Hoyer said that the bill would "ensure that Russia does not receive any sanctions relief."
"We want to have no doubt where we stand with these sanctions," he later added.
Reps. Tom Rooney (R-FL), Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), and Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA) are also co-sponsors of the bill but were not present at the press conference.
