Pelosi slams Mnuchin after classified sanctions briefing

Politico's Martin Matishak: "House Democrats excoriated Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Thursday following a classified briefing about the Trump administration's decision to ease economic sanctions on three companies linked to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. 'One of the worst classified briefings we've received from the Trump administration,' House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters. 'The secretary barely testified.' ...

"House Democrats called for the briefing after Treasury announced last month that it would lift sanctions on Rusal, one the world's largest aluminum producers, as well as En Group, the holding company that owns roughly half of Rusal, and EuroSibEnergo, a Russian power company. Deripaska — an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin who was one of several associates sanctioned last year over Moscow’s interference in the 2016 presidential election — has a large stake in all three companies... 'We’ll see,' Pelosi replied when asked whether she would consider a resolution of disapproval to block the removal of sanctions." - WaPo

JHC, the KGOP is openly trying to ease sanctions now on the very oligarch linked to Putin, the man responsible for interfering in our elections!!!
