Democrats raise eye brows at Russia Sanction Relief

Intro

The Treasury Secretary of the United States, Steven Mnuchin has been questioned by some members of the Democrats to justify the lifting of sanctions against Russian aluminium giant Rusal and two related companies.

The chair of the House foreign relations committee, Eloit Engel asked in a tweet on Friday if lifting the sanctions was related to President Donald Trump’s “business dealings in Russia” or his “cozy relationship” with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

The tweet was accompanied by a copy of a letter dated January 29 asking the Treasury Department to “provide each of our committees with copies of all documents pertaining to the decision-making process.”
