Democrats Push Probe Into Trump, Deutsche Bank and Russian Federation

Democrats Push Probe Into Trump, Deutsche Bank and Russian Federation

Last Wednesday morning, Trump discarded pleas from advisers to avoid wading into the tempest over Donald Trump Jr., and posted a fusillade of tweets defending him.

That's not the case today.

"I resent that anybody would even consider it to be a stunt", Pascrell said.

The emails connected Trump Jr.to Russian government efforts to help the Trump campaign by offering up evidence to "incriminate" Hillary Clinton. Now that members have reviewed the language more closely, House GOP and Democratic leaders are hoping to iron out the issues without re-opening the bill for a major rewrite. As in, he would have refused to meet with a Russian operative offering dirt on a political opponent?

Ryan wasn't the only one reluctant to imagine such a scenario.

"I have asked over and over again, what do the Russians have politically, personally or financially on Donald Trump that the American people should know", she said.

Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, D-Mercer County, said she would introduce a resolution in the House Homeland Security Committee seeking information from the Department of Homeland Security about all spending on Trump Organization properties or for Trump family member travel related to Trump Organization business. Lindsey Graham of SC, among others, that made similar points.

"You're going to be the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, pal", Graham said at Wray's confirmation hearing.

Deputy assistant to the president Sebastian Gorka said Thursday that Trump is considering giving Russian Federation back the compounds, which the Obama administration had connected to spying, "because we want to give collaboration, cooperation a chance". "It's the latest delay tactic", said Representative Eliot Engel, the top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington on March 21, 2017.

The president is reiterating that his son is a "wonderful young man".

An assistant United States attorney in a January court hearing in NY said the federal government had bypassed the normal visa process and granted a "type of extraordinary permission" so that her client could be in the U.S.to be deposed in a Justice Department lawsuit involving a Russian investment firm.

The resolution, introduced by Waters and Representatives Daniel Kildee (R-MI), Gwen Moore (D-WI), Al Green (D-TX) and Ed Perlmutter (D-CO), asks Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to provide records from his department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network that detail Trump's ties to Russian Federation as well as those of his family members and associates.

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said: "This is all doing nothing but helping Russian Federation. And I think it's ridiculous".

The panel is investigating Russian meddling in the US election.

She went on to list potential charges without providing further context: "Criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States, impeding the lawful administration of a federal election or to make an offense against the United States, cybercrime, hacking against USA citizens-the Clinton campaign". "They're going to go through that process and they're going to have to answer for these emails and the investigation will take its course".
