US President Barack Obama listens as First Lady Michelle Obama speaks during a ceremony at the White House in Washington, DC, on April 3, 2014US President Barack Obama sought to solidify top congressional leaders behind his strategy to isolate Russia and support Ukraine after Moscow’s annexation of Crimea. The comparatively rare talks between the president and leaders from both parties in the House of Representatives and the Senate on a foreign policy issue took place after the president signed a bill providing Kiev with $1 billion in loan guarantees. A White House official said Obama briefed House Speaker John Boehner and the chamber’s top Democrat Nancy Pelosi, as well as Senate leader Harry Reid and Republican minority leader Mitch McConnell on his consultations with top world leaders in Europe last week amid the worst East-West crisis since the end of the Cold War.
