(Worthy News) - Breaking with President Trump over the issue, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Wednesday joined Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) in announcing a bipartisan push for sanctions against the leaders and military of Turkey – a NATO ally – until it halts a unilateral military operation in northeastern Syria and withdraws its forces.
Their targets include President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his senior ministers, military assistance, transactions with Turkey’s military or energy sectors, and visas for Turkish leaders wanting to travel to the United States.
They also Ankara sanctioned for buying Russian-made S-400 air defense systems, under a provision of the 2017 Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), which seeks to punish those who enter into “significant” financial transactions with Russia’s military sector.
