Nancy Pelosi Says Trump Jr. et al May Be Complicit in Espionage

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi accuses Republicans of being "enablers of the Trump-Russia assault on our democracy", at a news conference on Thursday, July 13, 2017.

The document was submitted to the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday evening, the Reuters news agency reported.

Tillerson had the ideal forum to voice concerns and objections when he testified before the Foreign Relations Committee on June 13, the morning after Senate Republicans and Democrats agreed on the Russian Federation sanctions legislation.

The bill would enable the legislative branch to halt a reversal or lifting of sanctions by the White House with a majority vote.

Kushner is expected to cooperate in the next several weeks with the Senate and House Intelligence Committees that are looking into Russia's intervention in the USA election and any possible collusion with the Trump campaign. It also limits the USA president's ability to ease any sanctions on Russian Federation by requiring Congress' approval to lift any restrictions.

Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro, a member of the foreign affairs committee, said he would push a resolution to uncover the details of the Trump administration's push to weaken sanctions against Russian Federation. He replied immediately: "If it's what you say I love it". Two officials familiar with the Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation said the panel was now planning to expand its inquiry to include Donald Trump Jr.

"We're talking with the Democratic members about it, trying to put together a bipartisan bill, and we're moving forward", the California Republican said.

The fight over the House language is the latest twist for a bill that passed the Senate almost a month ago. Interviews with Republican lawmakers and a former Republican presidential candidate yielded a range of responses, with some refusing to take a position and others saying they would reject foreign entreaties and, in some cases, alert authorities.

Tillerson Set To Meet Poroshenko In First Official Visit To Ukraine
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Turkey today after a stop in Ukraine Sunday morning. And we do not rule out that we'll be able to arrange a summit following these phone talks.

House Democrats unveiled a new plan to force Republicans to stop covering up for the Trump administration.

"Dilly-dallying around about the blue slip issue was just a ridiculous waste of time".

And also: How extra money for Alaska could help the Senate health bill pass. "Our Republican colleagues must wake up and hold the president accountable".

Hoping to send a strong message to President Donald Trump, senior Democrats introduced an nearly identical sanctions bill that was passed 98-2 last June but has stalled since.

Seeking to force Republican House leaders to allow a vote, Democrats on the House Foreign Affairs Committee introduced legislation unchanged from what passed the Senate by 98-2 on June 15 but has been stalled ever since. "This is a smokescreen to a bill that needs to get done now".

But if the House adds North Korea sanctions to the bill, the Senate will have to debate the amended parts of the legislation before passing it.

But Ryan suggested that the House might address these concerns with changes to the measure. Executive actions, foreign policy flare-ups and the probes into Russian election interference have commanded far more of his time.
