Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will give lawmakers a classified briefing Thursday on his decision to ease sanctions on companies tied to Russian oligarch and Vladimir Putin ally Oleg Deripaska, NBC News reported. 

On Dec. 19, Mnuchin announced that the U.S. would be easing sanctions on Deripaska-associated businesses.

According to two top Democratic aides who spoke to NBC, House Democrats are hoping to home in on Mnuchin as a source of information for both the Russia probe and other investigations into Trump’s financial dealings and the Trump Organization.
