BREAKING: U.S. Senate Passes A Veto-Proof Defense Bill Mandating Sanctions Against Turkey.

Today, the United States Senate passed a veto-proof National Defense Authorization Act (84-13) mandating CAATSA sanctions against Turkey over its purchase of Russian S-400 missiles, reports the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA).

Both the House and Senate have now passed the bill by a veto-proof two-thirds majority, though it’s unclear if the same number of lawmakers that voted to pass the bill would vote to overturn a Trump veto. Overriding Trump’s veto would serve as a rare Republican rebuke to the president in his last weeks in office, reports Axios.
