Democrats overwhelmingly nominate Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker

Trump makes wall funding top issue as spending deadline looms

Nancy Pelosi won support from a majority of Democrats on Wednesday, November 28, to be House speaker, marking an important milestone in her quest to lead the House when her party takes majority control of the chamber in January.

A Democratic aide told CNN that "the bill would require presidential nominees to release their returns from the three most recent taxable years".

His comments to Politico and the Post came amid a White House meeting on Tuesday with House Republicans, who control the chamber until Democrats take over in January.

Pelosi previously held the position from 2007 to 2011.

Her actual support is at 200, adjusting for delegates who can't vote in the full House and one supporter who missed the caucus session.

On Wednesday, Pelosi, D-Calif., was nominated by her party to serve another stint as speaker in a 203-32 vote.

Many House Democrats have said they want to investigate President Donald Trump and his administration. They say plenty of Democrats could step up to the job.

A letter drafted by Michigan Rep. -elect Elissa Slotkin is being passed around the large freshman class, asking Pelosi to place incoming Democrats on powerful committees, among other demands.

She lost fewer votes than she did during a leadership challenge two years ago, and fewer than retiring Republican Speaker Paul Ryan faced in his internal caucus election for the job. Much of it will be modeled on legislation that he and more than 160 House Democrats introduced in May.

But Pelosi has been deftly picking off opponents - including nine who announced their support Wednesday as voting was underway - a trend she'll need to accelerate in the weeks ahead.

Political groups would need to disclose donors, and members of Congress would be barred from serving on corporate boards.
