House Looking at Moving Its Own Sanctions Bill, Adding North Korea

White House Pressures Congress to Soften Russia Sanctions Bill

White House Pressures Congress to Soften Russia Sanctions Bill

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi accuses Republicans of being "enablers of the Trump-Russia assault on our democracy", at a news conference on Thursday, July 13, 2017.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said he wanted the North Korea sanctions added to the bill.

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

In a recent interview, Trump said of the Russia scandal, "I think what's happening is, as usual, the Democrats have played their card too hard on the Russia thing, because people aren't believing it... a lot of the Democrats feel - they say, we're putting all our money into this Russia stuff and it's making Trump stronger". The procedure for its adoption in Congress was suspended due to the constitutional requirement that all legislative initiatives concerning budget expenditures should be endorsed first in the lower, and then in the upper house.

"Russia is interested in building friendly and mutually beneficial relations [with the United States], and we certainly commend all politicians, who pursue the very same objectives", Peskov stated reiterating Putin's earlier statements that Russian Federation had never and would never meddle into the domestic affairs of other countries, where the leadership must be elected by the will of people.

"I believe Iran, the work Russian Federation has done and what North Korea has done, it would be a very strong statement for all of America to get that sanction bill completed and done and to the president's desk", McCarthy said in floor remarks Friday.

"It's an idea, and obviously I don't find it unappetizing", Royce said.

"We will expose House Republicans' inaction for their willful, shameful enabling", Pelosi said Friday. "That's missing from this debate and that's very unfortunate, both on the Democrats and the Republicans".

Over 120 nations adopt first treaty banning nuclear weapons
Four others known or suspected to possess nuclear weapons - Pakistan, India, Israel, and North Korea - also refused to partake.

Either way, White House objections over the bill come too late to matter.

Congresswoman Maxine Waters said she and other Democrats on the Financial Services Committee introduced a Resolution of Inquiry directing the Treasury secretary to provide any documents related to credit extended by Russian banks or Russian government officials to the president, his immediate family, his associates or his properties and businesses.

White negotiations continue in the House about how to push the sanctions bill past a procedural dispute, oil and gas companies as well as other private-sector players are raising concerns to lawmakers about language in the legislation that might restrict their ability to do business with Russia-connected entities.

The resolutions, to be filed with a half-dozen committees, would enable a member to force a vote in committee or potentially on the House floor. "This is a smokescreen to a bill that needs to get done now".

Heather Watson to face Victoria Azarenka in Wimbledon round three
Great Britain's number one saw success in the second round to progress to the third for the first time in her career. I've got to expect her to raise her level and to try something new, and she did.

There's also another issue lingering over the bill in the House that could lead to changes to the measure. Executive actions, foreign policy flare-ups and the probes into Russian election interference have commanded far more of his time. "But aside from those issues we want to get this done, and get this fixed, and get this moving as quickly as possible".
