US's Ryan Promises "Bold" Russia Sanctions "As Quickly As Possible"

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

In the wake of Donald Trump's Jr's release of a stunning chain of emails detailing his conversations with a Russian lawyer who had offered compromising information on Hillary Clinton, Ted Deutch is calling for a vote on the Senate-passed Russia sanctions bill.

House Republicans say Democrats are blocking the bill over a provision that would keep them from reversing possible changes the Trump administration might make to sanctions against Russian Federation, while House Democrats say it's Republicans who are holding up the bill. The officials said the provision would infringe on the president's executive authority, according to an aide knowledgeable of the discussions.

"Right now, we have a procedural issue", Ryan said.

But for now, the bill is stuck in the House, with both sides pointing fingers.

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.

Nonetheless, Pelosi seems convinced that Trump's inner circle crossed a legal line in meeting with a Russian government lawyer they believed would provide opposition research on Hillary Clinton - a meeting Pelosi said is "cold, hard evidence" that the Trump campaign "eagerly meant to collude with Russia", and pulls matters into "new territory".

Stier argues while there's a lot of blame to go around, the lag is mostly a result of the Trump team failing to make nominations, not the Senate failing to confirm them.




It said the Democrats have shown that they are willing to break irresponsibly with tradition that allows a president to choose its own appointees in a timely fashion.

After the overwhelming Senate vote, the bill hit headwinds because of a constitutional requirement cited by the House GOP that legislation involving revenue start in the House. "We will expose House Republicans for their willful shameful enabling... of the attack on our Constitution". And he said any White House would prefer to conduct foreign policy without Congress, but the administration had not asked him to kill the bill. Only 50 Trump nominees have been confirmed so far, compared to 202 officials confirmed at the same point in the Obama administration, he said.

He said he expected the House to make changes that would not affect the bill's overall character and to address issues that have anxious energy companies, such as a provision that oil firms said could block them out of global exploration projects if Russian firms were also involved. The White House and the Kremlin have denied there was any interference in the election. She called the decision by Democrats to introduce the original Senate bill "grandstanding and not a serious effort to resolve this issue and hold Russian Federation accountable".

Some law makers are certain that a stalled bill imposing new sanctions on Russian Federation will be passed soon. "This is a smokescreen to a bill that needs to get done now".

"I urge House Republicans to work with us to address this issue so that the House can pass a strong sanctions bill this week". "This issue is easy to fix, fix it, send us back the bill - don't use it as an excuse not to pass the bill".

The legislation also places new penalties on Iran over its ballistic missile program. "But you've got to want a bill, you've got to want to find it".
