The U.S. president-elect Donald Trump should keep and even extend the anti-Kremlin sanctions imposed by his predecessor Barack Obama, otherwise he could expect a decisive response from the U.S. Congress. The ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said this during his interview with ABC News TV channel.
Asked how Congress would react if Trump reverses the sanctions after he takes office, Schiff said the reaction would be "even more vigorous, I'm convinced, in favor of stronger sanctions against Russia."
Schiff also slammed Trump for questioning U.S. intelligence reports saying that Russians were behind the hacker attacks on U.S. authoritative bodies in summer 2016. "If he's going to have any credibility as president, he needs to stop talking this way. He needs to stop denigrating the intelligence community. He's going to rely on them. He's going to have to rely on them," Schiff said. "None of us have any question about this. The only one who does apparently is Donald Trump".
