Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will brief key House Democrats Thursday on plans to end sanctions against three companies tied to Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska.

The closed-door briefing is set for 4 p.m. on Capitol Hill, according to a House official familiar with the plans. The meeting is a response to a letter sent Tuesday jointly by the new Democratic heads of seven House committees asking Mnuchin to hold off on lifting the sanctions until he provided a full briefing on the decision.
