Summary: War Crimes Accountability Act of 2016 This bill expresses the sense of Congress that the United States should actively encourage prosecution of war crimes suspects and Nazi war criminals.

The President may not issue a letter of offer to sell defense articles under the Arms Export Control Act for $7 million or more to an identified country. The President may waive such prohibition in the U.S. national security interest.
