Two Senate Republicans Warn Trump on Russia

Posted January 9, 2017 at 5:21am

Stars and Stripes reports that “senior Republicans Sunday gave Donald Trump the benefit of the doubt that he’ll make Moscow pay for hacking the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, yet the president-elect could face a rift with members of his own party if policies against Russia don’t change.”

“Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ that he and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., plan to introduce legislation for tougher sanctions against Russia, hitting the country in the financial and energy sectors ‘where they’re the weakest.’”

“Graham also said he supports a permanent U.S. military training presence in Ukraine, Georgia and the Baltic states.”
