 US Senator Graham says existing Russia sanctions not working, new ones being developed

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who sits in the Senate's Armed Services Committee, says Kremlin is still trying to interfere in the upcoming election in the U.S., therefore, he is "going to come out with sanctions from hell on Russia."

As reported by Censor.NET citing RealClear Politics media outlet, Sen. Lindsey Graham joined Fox News' Anchor Maria Bartiromo to discuss U.S. foreign policy issues including North Korea, China, Iran, and Russia.

Asked whether he wanted to see sanctions put against Russia, the senator said: "One hundred percent. I will give President Trump credit for being tougher on Russian than Obama. That is without a doubt clear. Army, the Ukraine, expelling diplomats, imposing sanctions, tougher than Obama did.

"But it's not working, Maria. They're still trying to interfere in our election. This week was good news for me in two ways. The president met with the National Security Council on Friday, ordering them to harden our electoral infrastructure against Russia and other actors for 2018. That's presidential leadership I've been looking for," he said.

"I've talked to homeland security folks, I've talked to everybody in the government. I think a good package is coming out of the administration to protect the 2018 election. Pompeo told Menendez that he would work with myself and Senator Menendez and other groups to put new sanctions on the table for Russia. I'm going to come out with sanctions from hell on Russia. Because what we're doing is not working," Sen. Graham stressed.
