Senate Democrats Move to Sanction Russia

A week after President Obama expelled Russian diplomats from the United States over alleged, yet unproven hacking of John Podesta’s email account, Maryland Democrat Sen. Ben Cardin is pushing for sanctions against the former Soviet Union.

Cardin, who is the leading Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relation’s Committee is pushing for sanctions due to Russia’s meddling in the Ukraine and their support for the Assad regime in Syria.

Arguably, the Kremlin, led by Vladimir Putin has engaged in the same level of meddling in foreign affairs as the United States in recent years as neither nation has developed an understanding of Jeffersonian, non-interventionist policies.

Cardin’s proposal will be a “comprehensive bill that will provide congressional authorization for additional sanctions against Russia.”
