July 24, 2017

(Washington, D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) released the following statement after negotiators reached a deal on a Russia sanctions package:

“I am pleased negotiators have made progress on this important legislation. Congress must have the ability to issue sanctions against Russia after Vladimir Putin so blatantly interfered in our 2016 elections. The effort by congressional Republicans and the White House to delay the House of Representatives from considering this bill has been troubling. It is beyond time for Congress to respond.”
