Putin to Expel 755 US Diplomats

Two administration officials say that Trump is likely to sign the bill, despite last-minute wrangling over language and bureaucracy. This was done at the same time that they expelled Russian diplomats in December, right before Obama's exit in January.

Never in doubt was a cornerstone of the legislation that bars Mr Trump from easing or waiving the additional penalties on Russian Federation unless the US Congress agrees.

"He is in a lose-lose situation here", Beebe said.

Ryabkov confirmed that the seizing of the properties was in response to the bill, but declined to say what other measures Russian Federation is willing to take if the United States continues to apply pressure.

White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said last week that Trump still doubts Moscow's involvement in the election campaign.

President Trump sits in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington on Tuesday. "There's no rationale, no excuse for a veto", Miller said.

The fact that the bill looks to limit Trump's ability to alter them comes after Democrats and some Republicans have raised concerns about whether Trump is considering giving back Russian Federation two compounds in Maryland and NY that were seized by the Obama administration for their 2016 election interference.

"We are offering to the U.S. side to bring the numbers of USA diplomatic and technical staff working in the U.S. embassy in Moscow, in general consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok to reflect the exact number of Russian diplomats and technical staff who are in the United States".

Mr Putin said the USA would have to cut its embassy and consulate staff in Russian Federation by 755. But faced with near-total consensus among Republican and Democratic lawmakers, the White House blinked, saying this week that Trump was "reviewing" the bill.

Nevertheless, signing a bill that penalises Russia's election interference marks a significant shift for Mr Trump.

Flynn's ouster was part of a trend that caused early Russian excitement about Trump to dissolve. They target Russia's mining and oil industry. It became worse when officials said Russian Federation interfered with our presidential election. Even if the President vetoes the bill, the bipartisan support the sanctions enjoy will nullify the veto.

The overwhelming support for the bill, which was voted under special procedures to pass with a two-thirds majority, forces Trump to obtain lawmakers' permission before easing any sanctions on Moscow.

"I think our main concern overall with sanctions is how will the Congress craft them, and any potential erosion of the Executive Branch's authority to implement them", Spicer said last week.

Both houses of Congress backed the bill, which also includes measures against Iran and North Korea, but it was thought Mr Trump might veto it.

"I can not imagine anybody is seriously thinking about vetoing this bill", said Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
