House considers adding North Korea to Russian Federation sanctions bill

House considers adding North Korea to Russian Federation sanctions bill

Taylor also criticized Congress' handling of the USA intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation sought to influence the 2016 presidential race in favor of Trump, saying that neither Democrats nor Republicans have taken meaningful steps to deter future efforts to meddle in us elections.

The document was submitted to the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday evening, the Reuters news agency reported.

However, there was no sign of support from Trump's fellow Republicans, who control majorities in both the House and the Senate and control what legislation comes up for a vote.

The bill codified existing sanctions against Russian Federation, while stepping up punitive measures over its interference in Syria, Ukraine and the 2016 US election; it also increases sanctions against Iran for a series of recent ballistic missile tests.

Congress is keen to take a stronger line against Russian Federation despite Trump pushing for a warmer relationship.

India rejects China's offer to mediate Kashmir dispute
Former Indian foreign secretary Lalit Mansingh said: "Mr Modi has built up this tough image back home to defend interests and punish those harming India".

For Trump, who has faced a barrage of questions about his own dealings with Russian Federation, watching his closest family members come under harsh scrutiny for things they are accused of doing to help his presidential campaign has marked an uncomfortable turn in the foreign entanglement that has shadowed him since he took office in January.

"The reality is, if you had some meetings, if you met some folks. say what you've done, get it out there".

"We will expose House Republicans' inaction for their willful, shameful enabling", Pelosi said Friday.

PELOSI: Speaker Ryan has avoided any response by the Republicans, any positive action to uphold the Constitution of the United States in terms of our electoral system, our democracy.

The fight over the House language is the latest twist for a bill that passed the Senate almost a month ago.

Live Crew co-founder Christopher Wong Won dead at 53
The trio formed the group 2 Live Crew in 1984 and scored a number of his records including the controversial single "Me So Horny". He remained wit 2 Live Crew until they officially split after 1998's The Real One and continued to perform as a solo artist.

House GOP leaders requested the change on the disapproval resolution procedure because the Senate wrote the bill without consulting them on House procedure, a leadership aide said. Since then, Donald Trump-as a candidate, as president-elect and finally as president-has weighed in on the topic.

As it stands, only the majority party would be able to bring in a resolution of disapproval, which would now enable Republicans to defend Trump. So they're trying to put the heat on their Republican colleagues.

Commenting on the meeting in an interview with CBN TV broadcaster on Wednesday, Trump said that Russian leader Putin would have been happier if Hilary Clinton won the presidential election previous year in the United States.

But the Senate's tweak also changed a provision allowing any House member to force a vote on a resolution to disapprove of easing sanctions, raising new objections from House Democrats.

On Friday, Republicans suggested reworking the legislation to add new sanctions on North Korea.

"Our collaboration is a tribute to the era", said senior Vice President, marketing KFC Steven Lee (Steven Li). KFC and Huawei are partnering to combine the ubiquity of smartphones with the yummy goodness of fast food.

"We will expose House Republicans' inaction, with their willful, shameful enabling", Pelosi said. The implication was that after being re-elected, Obama could be "more flexible" on Russian issues. "But aside from those issues we want to get this done, and get this fixed, and get this moving as quickly as possible".
