A bipartisan group of senators is attempting to enact more severe sanctions against Russia by inserting them into a popular sanctions bill on Iran.

Top senators like Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), the heads of the Senate Foreign Relations and the Banking committees, and other lawmakers are aiming to attach the Russia sanctions as an amendment to a bill that cracks down on Iran’s ballistic missile program. The legislation will likely be taken up by the Senate on Wednesday.

“We’ll anticipate that amendments addressing Russia sanctions are likely to be offered,” McConnell said Wednesday.

“I’m encouraged that the chairmen of the Foreign Relations and Banking committees, Sen. [Bob] Corker [R-Tenn.] and Sen. [Mike] Crapo [R-Iadho], have already been in discussion with their respective ranking members to work toward a bipartisan agreement. I support that effort.”

The vote on the amendment comes shortly before intelligence officials are set to testify about Russia’s alleged interference in the presidential election and a day before former FBI Director James Comey is set to testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
