The White House plans to work with Republicans in the House of Representatives to make loyal amendments to the bill on new sanctions against Russia. This is reported by the Politico, citing sources.
It is noted that the Trump administration is concerned that this bill "ties the hands" of the US while working on Russian-American relations.
At the same time, the publication emphasizes that the White House supports sanctions against the Russian Federation. According to the source, the political consequences of any veto have not been discussed yet.
The source also emphasizes that the White House is confident that it has allies in the House of Representatives who are also concerned about the prospect of breaking the tradition and limiting the control of the executive power over sanctions.
We recall that earlier the US Senate approved the expansion of sanctions against Russia.
