    Whoa, I'm not sure why this is happening. I've been to politico.com before without a problem.

    Okay, I tried from Google and was able to get to the article. Weird!

    "Any member of the Congress who doesn't want to punish Russia for what they have done is betraying democracy," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday. "And if the president doesn't sign the bill to punish Russia, he would be betraying democracy."
    Speaking to CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday, Graham vowed that if Trump doesn't sign this week's emerging Russia deal, "we're going to override his veto."
    Why is Trump denying everything and defending Russia? What's in it for him?

    State Dept defends Russia sanctions after Moscow cancels meeting

    The State Department on Wednesday defended the Trump administration's decision to expand U.S. sanctions against Russia, after the country's deputy foreign minister abruptly called off a meeting with a top U.S. diplomat.

    White House Tries to Get G.O.P. to Water Down Russia Sanctions Bill


    Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said on Tuesday that the administration was not ready to take an official position on the bill, including whether the president would veto it if it reached his desk.
    The Trump administration’s position is not an unusual one. Presidents, who have authority under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act to unilaterally impose sanctions in response to national threats, often bristle against attempts by Congress to review or block such moves. Congress, which can impose sanctions through legislation, typically insists on having its own say as a coequal branch of government.
    Last week, Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson warned lawmakers during an unrelated hearing against imposing new sanctions at all, arguing that it would undermine the administration’s efforts to forge new diplomatic channels with Russia.
    “Make no mistake about it,” said Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democratic leader. “The ‘blue slip’ threat is nothing more than a procedural excuse by House Republicans who dredged it up to cover for a president who has been far too soft on Russia.”

    Senate proposes fix for delayed Russia sanctions bill

    But it's future was thrown into limbo on Tuesday when Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) said the House parliamentarian had raised a constitutional objection to the legislation.

    "The House obviously will act to preserve the Constitution. Or the Senate can take the bill back, make the updates to it, and bring it back and move forward from that direction," Brady told reporters on Tuesday.

    The GOP lawmaker stressed to reporters that he supports stronger sanctions, calling the Senate bill "sound policy," adding: "This isn’t a policy issue, it’s not a partisan issue, it is a Constitutional issue."
