In the U.S. Congress want to compel trump to allow negotiations media

In the U.S. Congress urged “as a precaution” to create a pool of journalists to cover the activities of Donald trump. A draft resolution submitted to the Parliament the representatives of the Democratic party. The reason for such initiative was the meeting of the President of the United States with the Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov, to be illuminated by trump, allegedly in contravention of established rules did not allow the American media. Democrats emphasize that if the head of state himself does not provide transparency of its activities, it should be required to do this at the legislative level.

The representatives of the Democratic party of the United States Jamie Raskin and Pramila Jayapal recently introduced in Congress a package of proposals “aimed at ensuring transparency of activities of trump.” It included a draft resolution and three draft laws. The resolution notes that the media pool must be accompanied by an American President for all business meetings, because Americans have a right to know about all the actions and movements of the leader.

The authors believe that the 45th President of the United States violates that right of American citizens, preventing the coverage of negotiations at the highest level. In this Democrats, in particular, convinced the recent meeting of Donald trump with the Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov, which allegedly in violation of the Protocol was attended by the American press.

“May 12, 2017 President trump categorically prevented the presence of representatives of the American press corps on his meeting with the Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak in the oval office; however, employees of the Russian state news Agency TASS was allowed to attend the meeting and to shoot”, — the document says.

To avoid such situations in the future, it is necessary “as a precaution to create a pool of journalists”, which would be empowered to attend all business meetings trump, the authors of the document.

A war President with the press

The resolution also notes that “Donald trump at various points in his election campaign, and also on a post of the President of the United States has repeatedly attacks and insults independent American press.”

“President trump calls the media is fake and seeks to discredit the newspaper, covering the White house,” — the document says.

According to the congressmen, trump “has repeatedly avoided contact with the press, departing in this from the historical traditions and unwritten rules of American presidents”.

To account for foreign transactions

In addition to the resolution on the establishment of a pool of journalists, the authors also included a package of documents “on transparency trump” a bill requiring the President to submit to the Ministry of Finance of the USA the data about the previously concluded commercial transactions with foreign countries if their value exceeds $10 million

It is noted that these data should include all the details of the transaction, including the name of the recipient, the time and place of the transaction.

The President should direct the Secretary of the Treasury the original report with detailed information on all private commercial transactions with foreign States committed by the President within 10 years immediately preceding his assuming the post of President of the United States”, — the document says.

Earlier, RT reported that the may 11, Democrat Ron Wyden of the Senate Committee on Finance stated that he will block the appointment to one of key positions in the U.S. Treasury, while the Agency did not provide documents and other information relating to the “financial links” of the President of Donald trump and his associates with Russia.

In addition, the package includes a draft “Act on the protection of government activity from foreign corruption.”

In the new document, Democrats are calling to confirm “the applicability of Federal law on bribery and illegal gratuities, for persons residing abroad, and to acts carried out abroad.”

The initiators of this package of documents also repeatedly spoken out about the alleged relationship of the tramp with Russia. Pramila Jayapal, in particular, is a well-known supporter of the investigation relating to all contacts of the President with the Kremlin.
