President Trump signed into law today (August 2) a bill sanctioning Iran, North Korea and Russia, albeit reluctantly.
“While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed,” Trump said in an e-mail statement. He believes some provisions infringe on the “President’s exclusive constitutional authority to recognize foreign governments.”
While in Washington, GV Wire spoke with Congressman Adam Schiff (D-Los Angeles County) about that bill (H.R. 3364). Schiff, who serves as the ranking Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, talked about that sanctions bill.
We also discussed Russian election hacking, the Iran nuclear deal, immigration reform and California’s sanctuary state status.
