President Trump’s administration missed a legal deadline for a second round of sanctions pursuant to Russia’s use of a chemical weapon in a high-profile assassination attempt this year, a top Republican complained Tuesday.

“It is unacceptable that the administration lacks a plan — or even a timeline — for action on the second round of mandatory sanctions required by U.S. law,” retiring House Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce said as the deadline passed.

The article goes on to state the following:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s team concluded in August that Russia had provoked punitive sanctions under U.S. law, due to the use of a chemical weapon to try to kill a former dole agent living in southern England. That same law, the Chemical and Biological Weapons and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991, grants a 90-day window in which Russia — which denies the charges — could abandon such weapons and invite international inspectors to prove it had done so. But the State Department “could not certify” Russian compliance with that law.
