Maxine Waters, ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, told reporters she had filed a resolution of inquiry demanding the U.S. Treasury Secretary hand over documents in his possession, "relating to President Trump's financial connections to Russian Federation, certain illegal financial schemes, and related information".

In the month again as we celebrate the courage of our founders, Republicans in Congress have become enablers of the Trump-Russia assault on our democracy.

The previous bill called for imposing "sanctions with respect to Iran in relation to Iran's ballistic missile programme, support for acts of worldwide terrorism, and violations of human rights, and for other purposes".

The president did not address the implications of his son seeking opposition research from a hostile foreign power, instead praising Donald Trump Jr.'s "transparency" for releasing the emails.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced plans Friday to force House Republicans to take on-the-record positions on President Trump's possible Russian ties.

We also included Russia's response, as well as the state of US-Russia relations at the time. Rand Paul of Kentucky, opposed the bill, which also slaps Tehran with new sanctions.

She added that "House Republicans will have to answer for their actions".

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

The chamber's Republican leaders initially said there was a technical problem with how the bill was written, but after the Senate altered the bill to fix it, the measure still did not move. However, the change has yet to be adopted because the bill is in the House and needs to be sent back to the Senate for the latest version to replace the original text. Trump administration officials have been up on Capitol Hill lobbying against the measure.

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

In a release, Pelosi explained, "More than 300 requests for information from Democratic Members on these topics and other issues critical to the lives of the American people have gone unanswered by the Trump Administration".

And the State Department has confirmed ongoing discussions about Moscow's demand for the return of two diplomatic compounds seized by the Obama administration in December in response to USA intelligence agencies' conclusion that Russian Federation conducted a broad campaign to disrupt the election on Trump's behalf.

On Friday, Corker said he would be "more than glad" to consider adding North Korea to the legislation if the House chose to do so.

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. Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) on Friday will file a resolution to push for information on Trump, those in his orbit and Deutsche Bank.

On that, Sarah Huckabee Sanders quickly issued the ready-made statement from President Trump: "My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency".
