Donald Trump Jr. eagerly agreed past year to meet a woman he believed was a Russian government lawyer who might have damaging information about Democratic White House nominee Hillary Clinton, as part of Moscow's official support for his father, according to emails released on Tuesday.

The document was submitted to the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday evening, the Reuters news agency reported. The Senate GOP is facing a slim margin for passage, with a couple of lawmakers already saying they won't approve it. Trump said he'll be at his desk, "pen in hand!" to sign the bill if it passes.

The White House has publicly endorsed the current sanctions regime against Russian Federation, and legislative affairs director Marc Short said this week that the administration supports the new penalties in the bipartisan Senate-passed bill. The procedure for its adoption in Congress was suspended due to the constitutional requirement that all legislative initiatives concerning budget expenditures should be endorsed first in the lower, and then in the upper house.

"Just like the revelations that came up today, we need to have more oversight and more answers coming from the Trump administration in terms of their relationship with Russian Federation, not less -- and this is a good opportunity", Rep. Ruben Gallego, an Arizona Democrat with several amendments pending, told CNN. Pointing out that Trump "fawns over Putin" while trying to loosen sanctions imposed against Russia for interfering in the election, Pelosi wondered "what do the Russians have" on Trump. "Yeah, I think we get along very well and I think that's a good thing, that's not a bad thing".

"All they've got to do is send it over here", Corker said.

"I would never take the sanctions off until something is worked out to our satisfaction and everybody's satisfaction in Syria and in Ukraine", Trump said, adding later: "I've made great deals". "They prove that the Trump campaign was not only aware of the Russian government's efforts to meddle in our elections, they were enthusiastic about accepting Russian support".

"All of a sudden, the day before recess, the House Democrats said wait a minute-this doesn't give us the ability to amend congressional review", he said.

The goal of the procedural measures is to hold Republicans accountable for their "complicity" with Trump, Pelosi said.

The Washington Post reports they had to take " two 500-mile trips from their hometown of Herat in western Afghanistan to the U.S. According to the news agency AP, these girls were given a visa after the recommendation of President Trump.

But AshLee Strong, a spokeswoman for House Speaker Paul Ryan, blamed House Democrats for holding up the bill unnecessarily.

Pelosi called Republicans complicit in covering up scandals in the six-month-old administration and indicated she did not expect the resolutions to succeed in uncovering the information said they were seeking.

Corker pointed to a speck of dust on the floor and told reporters that focusing on the procedural issues Ryan's team has used to explain the House's slow going on Russian Federation sanctions would be like focusing on the speck of dust.

Still, the Tennessee senator stressed that the issue now was not about technicalities, but whether the House meant to take up the sanctions bill.

Her remarks were part of a news conference in which Democrats from various House committees detailed steps aimed at pressuring House Republicans to investigate Trump more aggressively.
