Democrats Are Overplaying 'Russia Card' and Face Backlash from Voters

15 Juillet 2017

"This is all doing nothing but helping Russia, " Tennessee Republican Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told the Associated Press. I have an idea: "pass the new sanctions law", tweeted Michael McFaul, a former U.S. ambassador to Russian Federation from 2012 to 2014. "I'm trying to do a bipartisan bill, so I'm totally deferential to the decision made by all of the parties at the table".

Democrats have accused Republicans of stalling the bill at the behest of the White House, which is opposed to the provisions giving Congress review power over any easing of Russian Federation sanctions.

New York Rep. Eliot Engel, the top Democrat on the House foreign affairs committee, charged that adding the North Korean sanctions legislation was "silly" and said, "It's clear to me they are trying to kill" the Senate's Russian Federation sanctions bill.

Waters and four other colleagues have been especially interested in learning more from Deutsche Bank, which is one of Trump's biggest lenders, according to government ethics disclosures.

The House passed a North Korean sanctions bill in May 419-1, but the Senate has not yet taken up any North Korean sanctions measures. "We will force Republicans to take votes on the record to continue from hiding the facts from the American people", Pelosi said.

Texas lawmakers and energy companies have raised concerns about the way the sanctions could affect the U.S. energy sector, although the Senate disagrees that it's an issue.

"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".

Under secretary of State Tom Shannon will meet Monday with his Russian counterpart in Washington, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters this week, with the goal of discussing "so-called irritants" in the relationship. "It's a witch hunt and they understand that".

Those modifications included a tweak that Democrats complain would weaken Congress's ability to block Trump from removing sanctions.

But House Democrats are up in arms over the Senate's changes after the chamber passed a new version of the bill two weeks ago, because the revised bill would no longer allow any member of the House to bring a vote on a resolution against the easing of sanctions.

Ways & Means committee member Bill Pascrell Jr., D-N.J., said he has counted more than 20 GOP members who have told their constituents that they think the president should release his tax returns - words that Pascrell argued mean nothing if they are not willing to vote to force the issue.
