Trump dodges on Russian Federation sanctions

White House Pressures Congress to Soften Russia Sanctions Bill

While the Democrats were trying to stop the Trump administration, the president was advancing policies to stop illegal immigration, protect American citizens from Muslim terrorist attacks, get the economy moving, revise the tax code, and repeal Obamacare.

Waters filed the resolution with the Financial Services Committee, which now has 14 legislative days to address it, either by debating it or voting it down.

Trump's sporadic salesmanship on the bills and ambitions lingering on Capitol Hill has become a defining characteristic of the complicated relationship between the president and congressional Republicans.

"It's an idea, and obviously I don't find it unappetizing", Royce said.

"Each of us standing here is asking House Republicans to take a stand", Watson Coleman said.

Friday morning on CNN, Republican Rep. Dave Brat of Virginia said: "You got to separate out the political".

Around 30 U.S. diplomats could be expelled from Russian Federation. And [Tim] Kaine now thinks the son is worse than Benedict Arnold.

The fierce criticism of a meeting between Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., and a Kremlin-linked lawyer in June 2016 has left the president by turns angry, defensive and protective, but ultimately relieved that for now, the worst appears to be over, people who spoke to him said on Wednesday.

"I think they'll pass a Russian Federation sanctions bill, and I think it'll look nearly identical to what they had", said Senate foreign relations committee Chairman Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican. Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen of Maryland as well as Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, the lawmakers wrote that "the Russian government has done nothing to deserve renewed access to these compounds".

On Friday, the Associated Press reported there was another person in the meeting not disclosed by Trump Jr.

The chamber's Republican leaders initially said there was a technical problem with how the bill was written, but after the Senate altered the bill to fix it, the measure still did not move. That person, who confirmed he was in the meeting, is described as having ties to Russian intelligence. Also in the room were Jared Kushner, the then-candidate's son-in-law, who is now a top White House official, and Paul Manafort, the campaign chairman at the time.

A spokeswoman for Deutsche declined to comment.

Huntington woman killed at Cincinnati party, 8 others wounded
Based on 911 calls, it appears that two hooded men entered the home and opened fire before fleeing. All of the victims were family and friends gathered for the party, police told WLWT .

The New York Times first reported the June 2016 encounter.

Besides his attendance at the meeting, Kushner has also faced scrutiny for not initially disclosing his foreign contacts when seeking a security clearance.

On Thursday, two amendments to do exactly that were blocked by Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee. Wasserman Schultz is the former Democratic National Committee chairwoman. Trump Jr. tweeted Monday that he was "happy to work with the committee to pass on what I know".

The department had already acknowledged that Sessions omitted from his form meetings he had with foreign dignitaries, including the Russian ambassador.

Watson Coleman said she wanted to be assured that federal resources are being used for true security needs "and not lining the pockets of the president".
