Stalled Russia sanctions bill hits North Korean snag in US Congress

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pauses while speaking during the Book Expo event in New York Thursday

But Trump also confirmed that he and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the pending congressional sanctions legislation during their meeting last week at the G-20 summit in Germany and left open the door to easing sanctions if his administration could gain something from Putin in the process.

"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.

An email exchange posted to Twitter by Mr Trump Jr showed him conversing with a music publicist who wanted him to meet with a "Russian government attorney" who supposedly had dirt on Mrs Clinton as "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr Trump".

On Friday, the Associated Press reported there was another person in the meeting not disclosed by Trump Jr. In this case, he added, "nothing happened from the meeting, zero happened from the meeting". He said there was still no facts to prove Russian Federation had tried to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

"In retrospect I probably would have done things a little differently", Mr Trump Jr said.

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. Witnesses who refuse to comply with subpoenas risk being held in contempt.

"I would not respond", Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn. said, adding he would potentially contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Russian Federation denies meddling and Trump says there was no collusion.

BC wildfire status Saturday: Crews brace for potentially stormy weekend
Crews have contained about 60 per cent of the fire but fear it could jump the Fraser River and threaten homes if winds pick up. Controlled burns allow for the fuel to burn in a controlled setting before fires potentially move to the areas, due to wind.

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

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied interference in the United States presidential election and has called such allegations absurd and meant to deflect public attention from revealed instances of election fraud and corruption as well as other domestic concerns.

It's not clear the Trump administration is actively planning to return the sites, though the Washington Post reported in June the idea was among several topics USA diplomats discussed with their Russian counterparts.

There are proposed amendments to review the security clearances of Trump family members, to require reports on the cost of presidential travel to Trump proprieties, and to prevent the Pentagon from spending money on hotel rooms at Trump properties.

It's unclear whether Trump Jr. would be as eager to testify before the Judiciary panel, which generally conducts open hearings.

Mr Trump Jr, who was deeply involved in his father's presidential campaign, portrayed his decision to release the emails as an effort "to be totally transparent". At least three investigations are ongoing: one probe by a Justice Department-appointed special counsel and one each by the House of Representatives and the Senate. "I'd be pleased if we could move next week". The government, the lawyer said, "made the further accommodation of allowing his Russian lawyer into the country to assist".

Democrats have renewed calls to revoke White House senior adviser Jared Kushner's security clearance. "What did the rest of the Trump family know and when did they know it?"
