Threat of Democratic scrutiny of presidency bringing 'headaches' to stocks, Trump tweets

The writer is a former Pakistan ambassador to the UN

"Over the last week, we've moved from relief at winning the House to rejoicing at a genuine wave of diverse, progressive and inspiring Democrats winning office", Ben Wikler, Washington director of the liberal group MoveOn, told the Associated Press. DACA allows about 700,000 undocumented immigrants-so-called "Dreamers"-brought to the USA as children to work and attend college without fear of deportation". When Democrat Mikie Sherrill, the former Navy helicopter pilot and prosecutor who would win a New Jersey House seat from the Republicans, was repeatedly questioned by voters about how, given her stated preference for change in Washington, she could support Pelosi as speaker, Sherrill called Pelosi to explain why she would announce that she would not support her for speaker.

On the House side, Representative Nita Lowey of NY, who is expected to become chair of the powerful Appropriations Committee in January, urged a deal on the DHS budget that would include partial funding of the wall.

"The whole issue of presidential harassment is interesting", McConnell told reporters, when asked what Senate Republicans would do if Democrats attempted to obtain Trump's tax returns. Democrats performance this year ties them for the fifth highest percentage out of the 27 since 1914. If Republicans insist that "it's the wall or nothing, then they are going to get nothing", Leahy said. Pelosi, who has repeatedly expressed skepticism about the idea of impeachment, will have to deal with her party's base (and a not-insubstantial number of her House Democratic colleagues), which believes that trying to impeach Trump is beyond debate. Chuck Schumer as their leader.

THE US Midterm elections 2018 are taking place today, but who will win?

One of President Donald Trump's saving graces in the 2016 election was white women, who made up 37% of the electorate and voted for him over Hillary Clinton by 9 points.

Schiff, Nadler and Cummings all denounced the appointment of Justice Department chief of staff Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general, following the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Longtime Clinton Adviser Guarantees Hillary Will Run in 2020
Below, the pair claims that Clinton will reinvent herself as a liberal firebrand to "easily capture the 2020 nomination". Recode's Kara Swisher asked her during a Q&A session."No, no", Clinton replied, prompting laughter.

"Trump is kryptonite in the suburbs", Costello said. Democrats won the popular vote tally in the Senate by 12 percent yesterday. But she also said that addressing climate change "gets kicked from session to session and so what this just needs to do is create a momentum and an energy to make sure that that it becomes a priority for leadership". "We are not doing any investigation for a political objective, but to seek the truth", Pelosi said. "Reinstating the Select Committee is exactly what we need to do". "But whatever it is has to be tied to comprehensive immigration reform".

McCarthy upped the stakes by introducing legislation for the full $25 billion the White House wants in border funds as he tries to shore up support from conservatives ahead of the GOP leadership election. "That's my main issue".

"We have elected a new generation of inspiring leaders and we know that a new era of democratic dominance is on the horizon", said the committee's executive director Jessica Post. "We have many women coming in with experience in national security", referring to the Central Intelligence Agency agents Elissa Slotkin and Abigail Spanberger, and a half dozen female military veterans as well.

Greenberg said all of the independent and moderate Democratic candidates lost their campaigns in the midterm. Democrats picked up at least 32 seats, with several races still undecided. But the longtime Democratic leader is working aggressively behind the scenes to rally members behind her bid, with the first test of her support likely to come Wednesday, when Democrats will debate a change to party rules.
