Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo’s bipartisan legislation to step up sanctions against Russia has passed the Senate on an overwhelming 97-2 vote. “This legislation signals to the world the United States’ unflagging commitment to the sanctity of territorial integrity, human rights, and good governance,” Crapo, chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, said in a statement. “It also demonstrates our resolve in responding to cyber-attacks against American citizens and entities and against our allies. The Crapo-Brown-Corker-Cardin bill will result in some very powerful, new sanctions against Russia.”
The two "no" votes came from Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah; and Rand Paul, R-Ky.
