Mnuchin trying to lift sanctions on Russian oligarchTreasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has agreed to present lawmakers with a confidential briefing on Thursday concerning a plan to ease sanctions on businesses linked to Oleg Deripaska, a prominent Russian oligarch with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Two high-level Democratic aides told NBC News on Wednesday that Mnuchin had agreed to the briefing, which comes after the chiefs of seven influential House committees urged the secretary to explain why the Trump administration was seeking to ease sanctions on businesses linked to Deripaska.

Lawmakers argued in a letter to Mnuchin on Tuesday that Congress did not have sufficient time to review the sanctions plan before the partial government shutdown began late last month. The letter's signatories said the shutdown hinders their ability to request information on the subject.
