Pelosi Calls for Release of 'All Communications' Within Trump's Family

The White House is complaining that Russia sanctions legislation doesn't allow the president to grant waivers when sanctions are put in place The White House is complaining that Russia sanctions legislation doesn't allow the president to grant waivers when sanctions are put in place

Most recently, the Senate voted 97-2 to pass a measure that would tighten sanctions on Russian Federation, and would prevent the White House from unilaterally easing or removing sanctions imposed earlier by the Obama administration.

Democratic senators from Maryland and NY warned the Trump administration Thursday against returning Russian diplomatic compounds seized in retaliation for that country's interference in last year's presidential election.

But for now, in an effort to keep things clear, here are some of the basic facts on the main sets of sanctions the United States has levied against Russian Federation, including the Magnitsky Act, the sanctions leveled over Russia's intervention in Ukraine, and sanctions leveled over the 2016 election.

The draft law includes the imposition of individual and sectoral sanctions against Russian Federation, and also fixes the existing restrictions against Russian Federation, depriving the president of the right to cancel them without the approval of the U.S. Congress. The Iowa Republican says he wants Trump Jr.to appear "pretty soon", and it could be as early as next week.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced plans Friday to force House Republicans to take on-the-record positions on President Trump's possible Russian ties.

Senators who shepherded the Russian Federation sanctions deal, which was added onto a bill leveling new sanctions against Iran, have been frustrated with the House fight, and are trying to stay out of it.

President Donald Trump on Thursday defended his son's meeting with a Russian lawyer, characterizing it as standard campaign practice and maintaining that "nothing happened" as a result of the June 2016 sit-down. The Senate GOP is facing a slim margin for passage, with a couple of lawmakers already saying they won't approve it. Trump said he'll be at his desk, "pen in hand!" to sign the bill if it passes.

She added that "House Republicans will have to answer for their actions".

The U.S. energy industry has been lobbying against the bill and some Republican House members, particularly from oil-producing states, have said they might want changes.

Democrats rejected the suggestion as another tactic by Republicans supporting White House objections to the bill.

Although Trump routinely proclaims his desire for political victories, he has yet to make a full-throated case to the country about legislation that Congress is pursuing and has spent a modest amount of time attempting to twist arms in the House or Senate. Many lawmakers are concerned that absent a congressional check on his authority, the president might try to scale back sanctions against Russian Federation - particularly by returning control to Moscow of two compounds that the Obama administration wrested from Russian Federation in late 2016 as punishment for alleged meddling in the 2016 campaign.

On Friday, Corker said he would be "more than glad" to consider adding North Korea to the legislation if the House chose to do so.

Dave Brat (R-Va.) said the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence panel, which is conducting a bipartisan investigation of the matter, is "seeing smoke everywhere, like "Cheech and Chong" movie".
