BREAKING: Senators Make Move to Strip Trump of Presidential Power
JS: This is a meaningless action by the Senate. Pres Trump can simply reissue an order when he feels it is necessary This is muscle flexing by the Senate as Trump is busy with the Comey Mueller conspiracy.
(Conservative Institute) In a rare show of bipartisanship, the U.S. Senate voted to diplomatically neuter the president and strip Donald Trump of his executive authority to independently regulate sanctions against a foreign power. The move represents an ambitious seizure of power from a legislature that is typically consumed with bickering and infighting and increasingly lacks credibility with many Americans.
With the approval of the House of Representatives, the bill would require that Trump first consult Congress before lifting or modifying sanctions against Russia. The proposal from the Senate to limit executive authority also codifies Barack Obama-era sanctions that were imposed against Russia via executive order, and encourages Trump to impose new sanctions against Russia targeting more expansive economic controls.
