Democrats Renew Efforts To Link Banks, Trump And Russia

Democrats and Republicans are still fighting over how to implement fresh sanctions against Russian Federation over alleged interference into the 2016 USA election.

Grassley wouldn't say what he wants to hear from Donald Trump Jr., but said members aren't restricted "from asking anything they want to ask".

"Instead of defending the integrity of American democracy, instead of holding the Trump White House accountable for its complicity, instead of showing Russian Federation that there will be consequences, the House Republican majority does nothing". It has been a subject of "robust discussion", according to three people with knowledge of the talks who were cited by The Post.

"Don. Jr.'s emails are a smoking gun", said Gallego.

The resolution, introduced by Waters and Representatives Daniel Kildee (R-MI), Gwen Moore (D-WI), Al Green (D-TX) and Ed Perlmutter (D-CO), asks Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to provide records from his department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network that detail Trump's ties to Russian Federation as well as those of his family members and associates. The fund is normally used to cover party-related expenses like election recounts.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell told reporters that Republicans expect to unveil their revised healthcare bill Thursday, with new CBO estimates expected next week, according to Bloomberg. It was revealed that the USA energy industry has been lobbying against the bill and some Republican House members, particularly from oil-producing states, have said they might want changes.

They're using a legislative tool that could force the full House to take up the matters if the appropriate committee doesn't take action on the inquiry within 14 days.

Trump Jr. himself said in a Fox News interview Tuesday night that "in retrospect I probably would have done things a little differently". "And I think it's ridiculous".

While it doesn't appear Kushner played a role in setting up the meeting, he was the only person known to be in it that now serves in the White House and has access to sensitive information. "His security clearance must be revoked immediately", she said.

The New York Times first reported the June 2016 encounter.

Pelosi launched her complaints during a news conference House Democrats held to introduce a half-dozen resolutions of inquiry pertaining to the president's and administration members' potential ties to Russian operatives.

The department has acknowledged that Sessions omitted from his form meetings he had with foreign dignitaries, including the Russian ambassador. "It's the latest delay tactic", said Representative Eliot Engel, the top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Both amendments failed to pass in committee.
