Pelosi starts bid for speakership with kind words from Trump

There are a half dozen House committees that have the power to investigate Trump - Intelligence, Oversight, Ways and Means, and Judiciary, among others.

And Jimmy Gomez, of California, said that those seeking to inflict revenge on Mr Trump were "wrong", tweeting that it was not "payback time" but "time to govern". He said he would "certainly have an open mind" about releasing them when the IRS audit ends.

The report said the survey, commissioned by FRC and done by McLaughlin & Associates, asked 1,000 people their thoughts on a wide variety of issues.

"Without hesitation, I would hold regular meetings and public hearings with members of this administration to impose transparency and assert Congress' constitutional role in setting trade policy", Pascrell said.

"When they were asked if they approved or disapproved of 'government forcing schools, businesses, and nonprofit organizations opening showers, changing facilities, locker rooms, and bathrooms designated for women and girls to biological males and vice versa, ' the answer couldn't be clearer".

"We did this in spite of a very dramatic fundraising disadvantage driven by Democrats' wealthy donors and special interests and very hostile media coverage, to put it mildly", Trump said at the White House on November 7.

"Proportionality is everything", Mr Neal said. He acknowledged, though, that the Treasury Department might not quickly provide the information, setting up a legal battle.

"I could see it being extremely good for me politically because I think I'm better at that game than they are, actually, but we'll find out".

Indeed, the number of new members who hail from the Ocasio-Cortez wing of the party is small. The president said he shares those goals, but will only play ball if they agree not to investigate him.

Given Trump's suburban unpopularity, some vulnerable incumbents struggled throughout the campaign to keep Trump's reputation at a distance in voters' minds. Federal law stipulates that Mr Mnuchin "shall" turn over the tax returns, and doesn't appear to give him much flexibility.

Pelosi also spoke about needing to "protect our borders" in a way that "honors our values" while recognizing "that there are 11 million people in this country that we have to address in terms of legalization and perhaps a path to citizenship".

"They did very poorly", Mr Trump told reporters.

"I don't think we can discount the impact of suburban voters", he said.

Lowe's Closing 51 Stores
Part of the modernization of Lowe's overall, Ellison says, includes hiring in supply chain, technology and engineering. The company said most employees will be offered positions at stores within 10 miles of where they had worked.

Most presidents would have come forward, congratulated the victor and pledged a bipartisan cooperation for the next two years.

"If that happens, we will do the same thing and government comes to a halt and I'll blame them", Trump told reporters.

In first calling on Mr Trump to disclose the records voluntarily, Mr Neal could be setting up a scenario where Mr Trump can disclose a limited amount of records and avoid having Congress comb through all of his past tax returns.

With a divided Congress starting next year, and the 2020 race for the White House now underway, the polarization in Washington means major economic legislation is highly unlikely, analysts said following Tuesday's nationwide elections.

Democratic control of the House should finally see the legislative branch emerge as the check and balance on the executive which the constitution intends it to be. Iowa has sent women to the Senate and governor's mansions, but never to the House of Representatives. Rep. Adam Schiff, who will likely chair the House Intelligence Committee, has previously indicated wanting to continue the investigation into alleged Russian Federation collusion.

Some Republicans sought to explain Michigan's shift to a more purple hue as nearly an inevitability after a long stint of one-party control. "I just can't stand Donald Trump and those around him". "All of this seems to me to have nothing to do with his official duties as President".

"What Gillum managed to do in a very hard state, not to mention dealing with all the racism that comes against him, is run on a progressive agenda and to mount a really, really very strong grassroots campaign", Sanders said.

In addition, Lamb has resisted endorsing House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for speaker of the House.

And then the White House would hope "Republicans take the House (of Representatives in the 2020 election) and nobody is demanding (the tax returns) at that point".

Measures including expanded background checks and a ban on assault-style weapons are likely to reach the House floor when Democrats retake control after eight years of Republican rule.

Exit polls can help people better understand how they fit into the bigger political picture and their moment in history, by gauging how much sway political campaigns and policy-making hold over a voter's decision when they cast their ballot, said Courtney Kennedy, director of survey research at Pew Research Center.
