"If during the campaign or since the president's inauguration members of the Trump team have considered altering sanctions on our adversary Russia, Congress and the American people need to know and have a right to know", Castro told reporters. Hoyer wants to present the original bill to the House without the limitation, and force a revote in the Senate.
Ryan said he has been told that US companies object to the energy-related sanctions in the bill, which oil and gas manufacturers say could hurt USA businesses while strengthening Russian interests.
That provision would require a congressional review if President Donald Trump attempts to ease or end the bill's penalties against Moscow.
'The administration is fully supportive of those sanctions.
The Senate tried to resolve the procedural issue before the July 4 recess, but the fix it installed has drawn objections from some House Democrats, who say it strips power from the minority party in Congress. Some Democrats had accused Trump's fellow Republicans of stalling the sanctions package at least until after that meeting, to please the president.
The House passed a North Korean sanctions bill in May 419-1, but the Senate has not yet taken up any North Korean sanctions measures.
"It's no surprise that the White House has voiced its opposition to this bill and tougher sanctions on Russian Federation", said Deutch. "Speaker Ryan needs to find his backbone to stand up to President Trump and let the House vote on this sanctions bill this week".
Resolutions addressing the Russian sanctions are scheduled before the House Transportation and Infrastructure, Foreign Affairs, Homeland Security, Judiciary, and Ways and Means Committee, according to the report from Politico. The sanctions debate comes amid intense focus on Russia interference into the 2016 US presidential election and investigations into the nature of the Trump campaign's relationships with Russian contacts.

"We may not share the same philosophy, we may not share the same type of... view of the world, but the fact is there are some issues of common concern", Gorka told CNN.
The current chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, Bob Corker, calls on Congress to respond immediately. "I would not and have never even thought about taking them off", he said during an interview with press traveling in France with him.
"Well he wants what's good for Russian Federation, and I want what's good for the United States". "I think the president has to have some flexibility here just in case there is reason to respond positively to things Russian Federation does". The legislation also expands sanctions against Iran for ballistic missile tests and the activities of the country's Revolutionary Guard Corps.
The legislation cleared the Senate two weeks ago with 98 votes, an overwhelming margin that suggested the bill would speed quickly through the House and to Trump's desk.
Nevertheless, Democrats have expressed concerns that, despite his tough talk, Ryan and his Republican colleagues are delaying passage of the bill in an effort to ease sanctions to please the Trump administration.
Hoyer also proposed a compromise to the latest procedural dispute, where the House majority and minority leaders would both be able to bring up the disapproval resolution, instead of any lawmaker.
"I don't believe that having the president's party in a position to protect [Trump] from any oversight is good policy for our country and, in fact, could be unsafe to our country", Hoyer told reporters.
