House considers adding North Korea to Russian Federation sanctions bill

President Trump attends a working session during the G20 summit in Germany

"We need to ensure that President Trump is not enriching himself while serving in the ultimate position of public trust", Johnson said. "We could have fixed it in five minutes", Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told reporters. "They prove that the Trump campaign was not only aware of the Russian government's efforts to meddle in our elections, they were enthusiastic about accepting Russian support".

The House and Senate have been fighting over the Russian Federation sanctions bill since it passed the Senate last month, 98-2.

The issue of Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election has become a political weapon in Washington, with Democrats seeking to portray Trump and his Republican party as soft on Russian Federation.

While the new bill is identical to what the Senate passed, it will be labeled as House legislation to avoid a procedural issue that prompted House Republican leaders to send the measure back to the Senate.

"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.

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. But in the wake of that report, Trump Jr.'s statements regarding the meeting changed.

Donald Trump Jr. eagerly agreed a year ago to meet a woman he believed was a Russian government lawyer who might have damaging information about Democratic White House nominee Hillary Clinton, as part of Moscow's official support for his father, according to emails released on Tuesday.

Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan's appointment put on hold
The new committee will meet CoA with recommendations on July 22, three days after the team leaves for the Sri Lanka tour on July 19.

The administration officials, who were career civil servants, expressed concerns during the meeting about the congressional review provisions in the bill, which would give Congress veto power if the White House tries to loosen sanctions on Russian Federation, according to the staffers.

House GOP leaders requested the change on the disapproval resolution procedure because the Senate wrote the bill without consulting them on House procedure, a leadership aide said.

Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 House Democrat, predicted that the matter would be cleared up quickly and brought to the floor for a vote this week.

House Democrats are also seeking records pertaining to any conversation the president or his surrogates had about modifying or revoking existing sanctions against Russian Federation, as well as records about the reasons for the president's use of Homeland Security resources to provide protection at the taxpayers' expense.

"This is more about foreign policy and having the flexibility to negotiate with other countries", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a daily briefing.

"Any administration would prefer to conduct foreign policy 100% without involvement by Congress".
