The bill would apply retroactively to May 17 2017 - the day Mr Mueller was appointed by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein to investigate allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible ties between Russia and Mr Trump's presidential campaign.

Klaas, a fellow in comparative politics at the London School of Economics, told Julia Hartley-Brewer: "What this signals is there's a serious push for a criminal prosecution". "Our relationship with Russian Federation is at an all-time and very risky low", Trump Tweeted.

"The odds that this will end with Trump being seen as this masterful president are basically none". The bill was passed by a veto-proof majority in the House and Senate.

"The U.S. President's signing of the package of new sanctions against Russia will have a few consequences", Medvedev, Vladimir Putin's onetime successor in the Kremlin wrote on his Facebook page in Russian and English.

After Moscow called the sanctions a declaration of "economic war" that had exposed the U.S. president's weakness, an angry Trump lashed out at his own lawmakers who had overwhelmingly approved the measures.

Mr Tillis and Democratic Senator Chris Coons of DE said they introduced legislation letting any special counsel for the Department of Justice challenge his or her removal in court.

The move is a sign that the sweeping federal investigation - which includes allegations that Trump campaign officials coordinated with Russian Federation to tilt the election in the Republican's favor - is gathering pace.

"It is a declaration of a full-fledged economic war on Russia", Medvedev wrote.

The Trump administration demonstrated "complete impotence, in the most humiliating manner, transferring executive powers to Congress", commented Medvedev.

Moscow has already ordered the U.S.to slash staff at its diplomatic mission in Russian Federation by 755 personnel in response.

"This changes the power balance in United States political circles".

Yesterday, Moscow criticized the sanctions. The delay had raised speculation that Mr. Trump might veto or try to somehow shelve the sanctions, which were approved in a 98-2 Senate vote.
