They invited a huge bill aimed, among other things, forcing the administration to examine whether Russia was a sponsor of the terrorist state.
Two-thirds of the Senate must also vote if it decides to leave Trump NATO, a net worth and asset report of the Russian President Vladimir Putin, and US-based insurer companies to report information of who owns the entity to purchase high-priced houses here – as well as a Russian hammer with many additional penalties and new ways of cracking on Russian disinformation and cyber- crime.
Sen. Bob Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat who is one of the cosponsors of the bill, said the law was a response to "the true paralysis of President Donald Trump in the face of the Kremlin invasion" and sought to speed Russia's pressure through wide range of measures.
"Putin's actions can not be tolerated, and the consequences of inaction are quick to combine," Menendez said in a statement.
"That's why we are introducing a proposal to actually address the facts of the Kremlin threat in a holistic way, all while sending a clear message to our adversaries that the US Congress will protect our institutions, allies and values even if the President chooses not to do so, "he added.
Republican Sen Lindsey Graham of South Carolina does not mention the President or the rules of administration in Russia in his own statement Wednesday but highlighted the way that proposed law serves as a significant criticism of Moscow.
"Our goal is to change the status quo and impose significant penalties and measures against Putin of Russia. He must stop and stop the US elections process, stop cyberattacks on American infrastructure, remove Russia from Ukraine, and stop efforts to create disorder in Syria, "Graham says.
"The penalties and other measures embodied in this measure are the most difficult imposed ever ̵
Trump often said he was "tougher with Russia" than any of his predecessors and called for an investigation into possible opposition between his campaign and Moscow "a whole big fat."
But the President was rebuked for his open admiration of Putin and continues to doubt whether Moscow is interrupting the 2016 United States election in 2016 despite assessments from his own intelligence community.
In November 2018, lawmakers gave their failures after the administration failed to announce a tranche of Moscow's penalties for poisoning a former spy of Russia and his daughter in the United Kingdom last year.
The US Treasury report, published soon before the midnight deadline, lists every senior member of the Kremlin political administration, and every Russian oligarch with a net worth of $ 1 billion or more .
Some of those names are subject to US sanctions. But the administration stopped the imposition of new penalties, saying that the law is doing its job. The report is "not a list of penalties," it says.
Instead, the Treasury report is similar to a name and lethality exercise – placing the individual on the notice that they may be subject to future penalties.
Correction: This article was updated to be displayed correctly when the list of Russians was launched and to add more background to the penalties.
