Rep. Lieu discussed why this is a clear violation of the Federal Elections Campaign Act, "If you solicit or conspire to solict, or show up at a meeting, or expect to get opposition research from a foreign national, that's a violation of federal law, so in fact most people would not have taken this meeting unless they were crooked".
House Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce of California told CNN that the North Korea addition was one of several options still under consideration as House Republican leaders consider how to deal with the Senate's Russian Federation sanctions bill.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Friday he believed the North Korean sanctions bill, which passed almost unanimously in the House in May, should be added to the Russian Federation sanctions measure that passed the Senate one month ago. Whether the House ever actually makes such a move, however, remains to be seen.
Nonetheless, Pelosi seems convinced that Trump's inner circle crossed a legal line in meeting with a Russian government lawyer they believed would provide opposition research on Hillary Clinton - a meeting Pelosi said is "cold, hard evidence" that the Trump campaign "eagerly meant to collude with Russia", and pulls matters into "new territory". A spokesman for the Senate Judiciary Committee said the letter hasn't been sent.
Democrats and Republicans are still fighting over how to implement fresh sanctions against Russian Federation over alleged interference into the 2016 USA election.
"I don't think this is the right time, but the answer is yes, I would", he said, adding that refusing to talk to Russian Federation would be foolish. "I think he's a tremendous guy", Trump said about Xi.
"We have to get all the information we can find about [President Trump] and his business relationships", Waters said in a recent interview with TheStreet.
"So he could be a tremendous guy, but he's going to do what's good for China", Trump said, adding, "I understand the other side".
With the Senate Republicans unveiling their second draft of Obamacare repeal, Trump described healthcare as "the only thing more hard than peace between Israel and the Palestinians". "I then said to him, in a totally different way, 'Were you involved with the meddling?' He said, 'I was not - absolutely not'". "Healthcare is tough", Trump said.
"Look, there's no better place for solar than the Mexico border - the southern border". "But we have some incredible designs..."
"You have mountains. You have some rivers that are violent and vicious".
Trump also offered a very different description of the border barrier than he portrayed in campaign rallies, where he would sometimes talk about a wall 30 feet high. "So you don't need that".
