REPORT: Democrat-Controlled House Passed Bill with ‘Quid Pro Quo’ on Election Interference

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by BREITBART.COM:

Democrats and the media cried foul Thursday when acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney argued that it was “appropriate” for the president to withhold funds from Ukraine until it investigated possible interference in the 2016 presidential election.

But the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill in September that imposes restrictions on transactions with Russia until it had been cleared of election interference.

The article goes on to state the following:

In the House version, all “United States persons” are prohibited “from engaging in transactions with, providing financing for, or in any other way dealing in Russian sovereign debt” after a certain date. That prohibition is lifted after the DNI can certify, within a certain timeframe, that “neither the Government of Russia, nor any person acting as an agent of or on behalf of that government, has knowingly engaged in interference in the most recent election for Federal office”; and after “Congress has passed a joint resolution certifying the determination” of the DNI.

The House bill amended Senate bill S. 1790: “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020.”

The Senate bill set a requirement for the Director of National Intelligence to investigate allegations of Russian interference in U.S. elections.
