Trump Jr urged to testify on Russia lawyer

Donald Trump's Chief Strategist in the White House Steve Bannon was last known as the head of Breitbart News — considered one of the most bigoted disgraceful news sources in America

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.

The sanctions build on executive actions taken by then-President Barack Obama after the Russian annexation of Crimea, and previous year in response to confirmation by the USA intelligence community of Russian election interference. The measure is a rebuke of Trump by limiting his ability to act unilaterally.

Nevertheless, Democrats have expressed concerns that, despite his tough talk, Ryan and his Republican colleagues are delaying passage of the bill in an effort to ease sanctions to please the Trump administration.

"For the past six months, (Senate Minority Leader Chuck) Schumer has deliberately run an unprecedented campaign of obstruction against the president's nominees for high-ranking positions in the government", White House Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short told reporters at a news conference yesterday. But, he added: "The way it is now drafted is a way neither a Republican nor a Democratic administration could support".

"I would never take the sanctions off until something is worked out to our satisfaction and everybody's satisfaction in Syria and in Ukraine", Trump said, adding later: "I've made great deals".

United States intelligence agencies said earlier this year that Russian Federation sought to help Trump win the 2016 election by hacking private emails from Democratic Party officials and disseminating false information online.

Sanctions legislation, which will also affect Iran's new economic sanctions, delayed a debate in Congress that Democrats accuse Republicans of protecting the congresses carefully. Under the revised measure, if the president were to seek to lift sanctions, only the speaker on the House side would be able to initiate a review.

Problems arose in part because the Senate version would have allowed any single member of Congress to force a vote.

Merkel criticizes Trump trade policy before G20
Merkel and Trump have clashed on a number of issues, ranging from migration to climate change , trade and defense spending. Several people were injured, and police confirmed they used pepper spray against "acts of resistance".

"I don't believe that having the president's party in a position to protect him from any oversight is good policy for our country, and in fact it'd be unsafe for our country", Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 House Democrat, said during his weekly news conference.

Democrats say they're concerned the stalling tactics could allow the Trump administration to return two Russian compounds in NY and Maryland that the Obama administration seized in December. Reuters reported Wednesday that foreign affairs Democrats are planning on introducing an "original" version of the bill, or the text of the legislation as it was written before the Senate modifications, which would eliminate what they see as the procedural issue.

Although Trump voiced hopes to improve relations with Russian Federation, most lawmakers - Republicans and Democrats - favor a tougher line than the president on Moscow.

A bill that many lawmakers hoped would send a message to President Donald Trump to keep a strong line against Russian Federation hit a new snag in the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday, as Republicans proposed combining it with sanctions on North Korea. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said last month that Trump needs to retain "the flexibility to adjust sanctions to meet the needs of what is always an evolving diplomatic situation" with Russian Federation.

The provisions would require a congressional review if Trump seeks to ease or end the sanctions against Moscow.

We also included Russia's response, as well as the state of US-Russia relations at the time.

Despite its passage in the Senate by such a wide margin, the bill has been stalled in the House over what Ryan has called policy and procedural matters. When senators agreed to fix a constitutional issue with the sanctions legislation weeks ago, they also made a procedural change that Democrats say detracts from their ability to hold the Trump administration accountable if it lifts or eases sanctions on Russian Federation. But he appeared to object to a key part of the legislation that would give Capitol Hill a much stronger hand in determining Russian Federation sanctions policy.

"This is all doing nothing but helping Russian Federation", said Corker, R-Tenn.
