Key Democratic lawmaker may invite bank CEOs to testify before US Congress

Key Democratic lawmaker may invite bank CEOs to testify before US Congress

And by combining this policy agenda with rigorous oversight of Trump and his administration by progressive Democrats like incoming Judiciary Committee chair Jerry Nadler of NY and incoming Oversight and Government Reform Committee chair Elijah Cummings of Maryland-both of whom are prepared to navigate an accountability moment that could see Robert Mueller's inquiry open up a serious debate about impeachment-Democrats can outmaneuver Trump and Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell.

Not only have the Republicans strengthened their hold on the Senate, but within that majority, several so-called "never-Trump" Republicans disappeared. Democrats picked up three House seats, benefiting from strong support from suburban voters. If they fail to do so, Trump will maintain control of the narrative in what should be an accountability moment for his presidency and a policy-shift moment for the country.

Rep. Kate Harper, a nine-term Montgomery County Republican, had survived a series of tough races over the years before losing Tuesday in a district nearly evenly divided by party registration. "She has earned this great honor!", Trump said.

Unexpectedly Mr Trump also announced that Vice President Mike Pence would be his running mate once again in the 2020 presidential election, when he hopes to capture a second term in the White House. When they asked how the Trump Organization arrived at the $151,470 in profits it paid back to the Treasury for foreign stays at his hotels, they got silence.

Polling experts have since worked to improve their methods and how they collect responses from voters for exit polls, Kennedy said.

She added: 'It's what I anticipate, I expect and what I thrive on'.

But he said that if Democrats start serving legal writs against him, Republicans would retaliate in kind.

"It's very easy to over-interpret the impact of a midterm on the next presidential race, as both 2010 and 2014 taught us", Ayres pointed out, noting that while Obama had disastrous midterm elections he still won re-election.

He also warned he will go after Democrats if they come after him.

Among the subpoenas could be a demand to force Trump to provide copies of his tax returns, which the president has so far refused to disclose. "Two can play that game!"

"If you're not connecting with the workers, then you're not going to be able to do well", Ryan said in an interview.

"As soon as there was the free-kick in there, I had the confidence that I had to take it", he said following United's 2-1 Champions League victory .

Welch's comments come fresh off Tuesday's election and the Democratic Party claiming a majority in the lower chamber for the first time in eight years.

The House Diversity Initiative calls for creating a permanent office in the House with sufficient staff to help recruit and retain diverse employees to work in Congress, said a Pelosi aide.

The president endorsed Nancy Pelosi to be the speaker of the House and said that the two parties are equally invested in delivering legislation on infrastructure, health care, prescription drug prices, and veterans affairs. Republicans' heavy hand in drawing district boundaries (Michigan is seen as one of the most politically gerrymandered states) was too much to overcome, he said. The Trump administration will face a level of scrutiny from Congress that it has not yet faced. That will subject Trump's decision-making - as well as his personal finances and potential conflicts of interest - to deeper public and private examination by key committees, as the national focus shifts to the 2020 presidential election. But election night painted a different picture.

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are the first Muslim women and Sharice Davids and Debra Haaland the first Native American women to be elected to Congress.

"The whole issue of presidential harassment is interesting", the leader said, "I remember when we tried it in the late 90s". In George W. Bush's first midterm, which took place a year after 9/11, the Republicans gained one Senate seat.

"What we also saw was the Trump factor", Pepper told reporters. "That's a firewall", GOP volunteer James Murr said.

In the Florida Senate race, Gov. Rick Scott has pulled 22,000 votes ahead of the incumbent Democrat, Sen.

The result was broadly in line with what many analysts projected but makes for a confusing picture.

It also doesn't appear to give the White House the power to intervene.

Mr Trump praised candidates who embraced his policies and principles during the midterm election, saying they "did very well".

But, in another tweet on Wednesday, he told those candidates who avoided him to "say goodbye!"
