Democrats Push Probe Into Trump, Deutsche Bank and Russian Federation

In a month when Americans celebrate the courage of the nation's founders, "the Republicans in Congress have become enablers of the Trump-Russia assault on our democracy", Pelosi said.

The president also discussed his son's "short" meeting with a Russian lawyer, telling reporters the Donald Jr.is "a good boy... a good kid".

That's because Republicans overwhelmingly have responded to revelations about Trump's administration or campaign by voicing confidence in ongoing investigations by the House and Senate intelligence committees and Robert Mueller, the former FBI director serving as a special counsel at the Justice Department. It has been a subject of "robust discussion", according to three people with knowledge of the talks who were cited by The Post. Don Trump Jr.'s emails are a smoking gun.

Investigations are being conducted in the United States into possible collusion between Trump's campaign team and Russian Federation when he was running for president in 2016.

House committees have 14 legislative days to debate and vote on a resolution of inquiry before it is automatically discharged to the full House, giving members the chance to force a floor vote.

"They're over it", Taylor said on CNN's "The Lead". "And I think it's ridiculous".

The June 9 meeting involved a lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, who was described to Trump Jr.in emails as a "Russian government attorney" who had incriminating information on Clinton.

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

On Friday, the Associated Press reported there was another person in the meeting not disclosed by Trump Jr.

Watson Coleman said she wanted to be assured that federal resources are being used for true security needs "and not lining the pockets of the president".

Besides his attendance at the meeting, Kushner has also faced scrutiny for not initially disclosing his foreign contacts when seeking a security clearance.

Russian Federation has been contemplating its own new wave of counter-sanctions specifically aimed at the ones that Barack Obama brought in back in December 2016.

Pelosi launched her complaints during a news conference House Democrats held to introduce a half-dozen resolutions of inquiry pertaining to the president's and administration members' potential ties to Russian operatives. These include a procedural move, a "resolution of inquiry", by which the Democrats intend to force a vote on a request that Attorney General Jeff Sessions disclose information about his meetings a year ago with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak-among other matters.

Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker said in a statement that he's open to the House adding North Korea sanctions.

Both amendments failed to pass in committee.
