Video: Cornyn Calls on Senate to Consider Russia Sanctions

WASHINGTON – Thursday morning on the floor of the U.S. Senate, Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) called on the Senate to consider tougher sanctions on Russia.

Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s floor remarks are below, and video can be found above.

“My concern with this resolution is that it is purely a symbolic act.”

 “I think we should consider sanctions, not sort of sense of the Senate resolutions that have no sting or no impact, certainly no deterrent effect on what we all want to discourage, which is Russian involvement in our 2018 elections. And that’s why the Majority Leader today asked the Chairmen of the Banking and Foreign Relations Committee[s] to hold hearings and recommend additional measures that could respond to or deter Russian malign behavior.

“That’s the way we ought to do our work, through our committees of jurisdiction.”

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.

    REALLY! John Cornyn considers sticking his finger in his boss, Vladimir Putin’s eye? another good way to cover up and deflect for Donald Trump. New Russian Sanctions that will never be imposed over donald trump’s dead FAT body. With so much adorable love for his puppet master Putin,never though that Donald Trump could be so tame and obedient when he’s around the BIG BOSS.The Helsinki Summit said it all how trump has this crush for Vladimir Putin.

  2. GOP! GUARDIANS Of Putin!
