An association of journalists who report on the U.S. Congress has voted to revoke the press credentials of the Kremlin-funded RT news channel.

The production company behind RT America reluctantly registered as a foreign agent in the U.S. this month. The U.S. intelligence community suspects the state-run network of playing a key role in Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election.

U.S. officials claimed that RT’s registration under the 1938 Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) would not limit the network’s ability to report in the country. Washington also said that Moscow’s retaliatory legislation was not comparable to RT’s FARA registration.
