Trump warns House Democrats about gridlock over investigations

Unless something dramatic changes, we can expect more of the same negative coverage given that most of the press and academia are liberal Democrats. But whether this actually happens is unknown, as only 58 Democrats voted in support of debating Trump's impeachment past year.

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who is seeking to reclaim the gavel as House speaker, called it a "new day in America".

But the first order of business for the House Democratic Caucus is to nominate a speaker.

In his press conference a day ago, President Donald Trump issued a challenge to newly empowered Capitol Hill Democrats: "Come on", he said, "let me see what you have". "The American people will see his tax returns, not because of any voyeuristic interest, but because they should know if he's corrupt", Swalwell said.

However, any attempt to impeach Trump is likely to run headlong into resistance in the GOP-controlled Senate. Trump would merely need to defend them, fold them into the White House's message, and convince voters they were an administration priority.

The party adopted a trio of policy goals which proved favourable: reducing health care costs, creating jobs through infrastructure investment, and offering a reform package to clean up politics.

Calibrate your watches. The race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination starts... right... NOW. In that election, Republicans won control of 21 additional state legislative chambers, and over 700 new Republican lawmakers were elected. Trump didn't win by turning out a new segment of disaffected voters as much as Hillary Clinton lost by failing to turn out Democrats.

The article also talked of how the midterm elections "put a dent" in Trump's armour "both by exposing weaknesses in the Midwest and assuring sustained congressional investigations over the next two years".

Nationally, three-quarters of voters said the tumultuous battle was important to their vote, including 48 percent who said it was very important. More women than ever were running, along with veterans and minorities, many of them motivated by revulsion over Trump. Perhaps the biggest new political star among them is New York's 29-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a liberal firebrand from the Bronx. He predicted an "invasion" from the migrant caravan making its way toward the US and decried the "radical" agenda of speaker-in-waiting Pelosi.

Deutsche Bank has lent the Trump Organization hundreds of millions of dollars for real estate ventures and is one of the few major firms that lent extensively to Trump in the past decade.

In the Miami area, former Clinton administration Cabinet member Donna Shalala won an open seat, while GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo lost his bid for a third term in a nearby district. Voters are demonstrating a willingness to consider issues and candidates more thoroughly at the state level, not just their own registered party.

Pennsylvania was particularly daunting for Republicans after court-imposed redistricting and a rash of retirements put several seats in play. Their sense of urgency helped Pressley displace an able but older Democratic incumbent in her September primary, and it has ushered into Congress a new generation of intersectional activists-among them Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York, Rashida Tlaib from MI, and Ilhan Omar from Minnesota-who have been given a charge not merely to dissent against Trump but to present a governing alternative.

The same formula holds in the other three "blue wall" states. But in reality, it wasn't - it was a bad loss, a repudiation; the real weakness evident in the two parts of the country where he needs to win to get re-elected suggests Trump will just be a weakened president over the next two years.

These new records represent the culmination of a record-setting year for female candidates.

"These are seats that could've been held pretty easily". Although Republicans Rick Scott and Mike DeWine won their senate and gubernatorial elections in Florida and Ohio, Democrats were triumphant in unseating Republican Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, and winning the governorships of MI and Pennsylvania. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA) has won another term.

In California, four GOP seats in the one-time Republican stronghold of Orange County were in play, along with three other seats to the north beyond Los Angeles and into the Central Valley.

The press conference, which initially focused on simple political topics, quickly descended into chaos after Trump was asked about his politics and the controversial issue of Russian Federation meddling in the US's 2016 presidential election (the same election that put Trump in the White Hosue).
