Leonard Lance: ‘I Certainly Urge’ Trump to Sign Russian Sanctions Bill

‘We’re going to pass a strong sanctions bill this week in the House of Representatives’

EXCERPT:

CUOMO: "By making him -- you know, you can’t make the president do anything, but if he does sign this bill with pressure from his party, because you guys are in favor of it, then he has to own the reality of Russian interference. Are you OK putting him in that position?"
LANCE: "We’re a separate and independent branch of government as the president is a separate and independent branch of government, and I believe upon reflection that he will sign this into law. And I would certainly urge him to do so. I respect the presidency. I recognize that he’s a separate branch of government, but we need this tough sanctions bill not only against Russia, but also against Iran and North Korea."
