Senate's Russia/Iran sanctions bill faces opposition in both House and Trump administration

13 July 2017

Democrats are suggesting that the delay is intentionally engineered by the Republicans out of loyalty for President Donald Trump, who opposes imposing extra sanctions on Russian Federation. "I've had discussions with the speaker as recently as last night, and I'm hopeful we can resolve these concerns with reference to how the resolution is brought to the floor". He said during congressional testimony that Trump needs to have "the flexibility to adjust sanctions to meet the needs of what is always an evolving diplomatic situation" with Russian Federation.

President Trump: "My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency".
. Pyle said a fair number of people who served on the Trump campaign expressed interest in serving the president when he assumed office and, like other administrations, came aboard but either found it wasn't a good fit or lost interest.

"This is grandstanding and not a serious effort to resolve this issue and hold Russian Federation accountable", Ryan press secretary AshLee Strong said.

Veselnitskaya told NBC News Tuesday that she never had any damaging information on Clinton, and it was never her intention to secure the meeting under the impression that she did.

The emails were with Rob Goldstone, who arranged the meeting.

Andy Murray has been knocked out of Wimbledon
In that second set, Murray broke No. 24 Querrey to take a 4-3 lead but then American broke back, held and broke again for the win. Querrey's path to the Finals won't get any easier - he'll play the victor of Marin Cilic (7) and Gilles Muller (16) next.

Trump also retweeted a video of Sen.

Although his father was silent on the controversy, Donald Trump Jr. did address it on Tuesday, tweeting: "Media & Dems are extremely invested in the Russian Federation story".

The legislation sailed through the Senate almost a month ago in response to Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election and its belligerence toward Ukraine.

The contentious amendments aren't limited to Trump, either, with proposals ranging from a new war authorization against ISIS to blocking Turkey from obtaining F-35s until it cooperates with the investigation into the May violence outside its U.S. embassy. "This is moving into perjury, false statements and even potentially treason". Any attempts to alter the legislation would face stiff opposition from congressional Democrats and even a large number of Republicans due to their wariness over Trump's desire for better relations with Moscow.

Now, Ryan claims the question of whether he'd accept campaign help from foreign operatives is a "hypothetical". Tim Kain, a former candidate for VP and a senator of Virginia has set the tone for the motivation of the Democrats by stating that what was initially an investigation for collusion is now gearing toward "treason". "Running around screaming TREASON day after day is definitely conducive to a healthy, rational, and constructive political environment", journalist Michael Tracey of the liberal The Young Turks tweeted.

South Korea Disputes North's Claim of Long-Range Missile Test
Some high-ranking officials of the Trump government have indicated that Washington could take military action against North Korea. He also noted that the North Korea wanted direct talks with the United States , adding China is helping this dialogue.

In addition, "high quality person" is a odd thing to say about one's own son, but as it turns out, #45 uses the compliment a lot.

Short and other officials said they hope a slew of nominees are confirmed before Congress goes on its August recess, but raised the specter that the recess could be delayed if significant progress is not made.

The press briefing was twenty minutes late and the members of the White House press corps were doing live pre-briefing hits. "I made a decision to take the meeting", he explained.

The Times reported later Monday that the younger Trump was told in an email before the meeting that the information was derived from a Russian government effort, citing three people with knowledge of the email.

He added, "To put this in context, this occurred before the current Russian fever was in vogue".

Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee that the president asked for his loyalty, a request critics deemed inappropriate. Ultimately it will be up to senators to ask the tough questions about how the administration will be treated.
