"I will be introducing Thursday a sanctions bill against Russia that has everything but the kitchen sink in it. It will be the sanctions bill from hell and any other country who is trying to interfere with our elections should suffer the same fate. You can only do so much on defense. It is now time to go on offense," Graham said.
On January 29, the United States started to impose sanctions under the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) on foreign entities and individuals who conduct major transactions with the Russian defense or intelligence sector.
The senators said their new bill would also establish a State Department sanctions coordinator and a National Center to Respond to Russian Threats.
Russia has denied all allegations of interfering in the US election, calling the accusations "absurd."
