Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC02) Introduces H.R. 5276

Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC02) introduced a bill seeking to require a report into whether certain Iraqi officials violated the Global Magnitsky Act for abuses against protestors, thusly making them eligible for sanctions. The legislation states that it is Congress’ finding that, “[Iraq]…us[ed] unprecedented repressive measures against protestors.” If passed, the bill would require a report on such measures to determine suitability for sanctions within 90 days.
