Stalled Russia sanctions bill hits North Korean snag in U.S. Congress

Stalled Russia sanctions bill hits North Korean snag in U.S. CongressBy Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A bill that many lawmakers hoped would send a message to President Donald Trump to keep a strong line against Russia hit a new snag in the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday, as Republicans proposed combining it with sanctions on North Korea. The Russia sanctions bill passed the Senate on June 15 by 98-2, but it has not come up for a vote in the House. The chamber’s Republican leaders initially said there was a technical problem with how the bill was written, but after the Senate altered the bill to fix it, the measure still did not move.
