A new bill for a fresh round of sanctions against Russia, unanimously adopted last week, carries no legal weight because it didn't follow proper procedure. The White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that during his briefing on Monday.
“The new bill that the Senate parliamentarian rule didn't follow proper procedure. So, I mean, there is no new bill at this time,” Spicer said.
In addition to that he didn’t comment on the position of the Head of the White House on his support of some type of punitive action directed at Russia specifically.
“I do know, when it comes to how the President works, he doesn't telegraph what he's going to do on a lot of these things,” the representative of the White House press service said.
Replying to the critics about collusion of Trump’s campaign and Russian side, Spicer said it never happened.
“Well, there’s two aspects to that question. One is, if you believe the story that was written, that means from August through November 8th, two things: One, that if you believe that, then they did know about this. And there’s some serious questions about what they did or did not do in terms of acting. And the second is, I think it’s then pretty clear that they knew all along that there was no collusion. And that's very helpful for the President,” Sean Spicer stated.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko visited U.S. Within its frameworks, Poroshenko negotiated with U.S. President Donald Trump, Vice President Michael Pence and Secretary of Energy Rick Perry.
