Make America Safe:

• by Mish

House Speaker Paul Ryan just bragged the House passed "one of the most expansive sanction packages in history." The bill places sanctions on Russia, Iran, and North Korea.

The bill passed by a veto-proof margin 419-3. The three members of Congress who are on the right side of the debate (all Republicans) are Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, Rep. Tom Massie of Kentucky and Rep. John Duncan of Tennessee.

The wheels are in motion. All that needs to happen is for the Senate to go along. That's likely because the Senate passed its own measure.
