"There is no issue, except do they want to pass a Russian Federation sanctions bill or not", Senator Bob Corkertold reporters at the U.S. Senate.
With less than a month remaining in the August recess, the Senate has confirmed only 23 percent of President Trump's 216 nominations, the White House alleged.
Now that members have reviewed the language more closely, House GOP and Democratic leaders are hoping to iron out the issues without re-opening the bill for a major rewrite.
That provision would require a congressional review if President Donald Trump attempts to ease or end the bill's penalties against Moscow.
"The Russian intelligence services will simply be further emboldened if they see that this administration and Congress are unwilling to really meaningfully sanction such behavior".
"If the White House is looking for the cause of the delay, they need only look in the mirror", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.
"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", Pelosi asserted.
And if the House doesn't pass the sanctions, Bergmann said he thinks Republicans who are up for reelection in 2018 could face grave consequences.
"Our legislation puts to rest all the technical questions and allows the House to finally vote on the same legislation that won overwhelming bipartisan support in the Senate", said Rep. Eliot Engel of NY, the top Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee. "Speaker Ryan needs to find his backbone to stand up to President Trump and let the House vote on this sanctions bill this week".

"I think that the president has every right to call Congress back if necessary, because I think he'd made a very fair point that I believe that the Democratic obstruction is jeopardizing national security", Short said.
"Well he wants what's good for Russian Federation, and I want what's good for the United States".
"For House Republicans wanting distance from the Russian Federation mess". "I think frankly they did not realize the outcome of striking some of the language which assured a vote by everybody". Those modifications included a tweak that Democrats complain would weaken Congress's ability to block Trump from removing sanctions.
"The issue is, is the House going to take up Russian Federation sanctions or not?"
But there's a hitch in that argument, too: It's Republicans who control the Senate, and the minority is no longer able to wield filibusters against executive-branch nominees. In other words, no Democrat in the House could do so.
The addition of the House's North Korean sanctions bill would be yet another twist for the Senate's legislation that includes both Russian Federation and Iranian sanctions, which passed 98-2 one month ago.
If Ryan rejects the compromise, Hoyer said that would tell him that House Republicans "are in a protective mode, not a mode of assuring, as the Senate did, that we have significant oversight".
