Trump to Dems threatening investigation: 'Two can play that game!'

As Pelosi played a starring role in GOP attack ads against them, several Democrats said flat-out they would not vote for her as leader. Democrats secured enough seats needed to make a majority, clinching the House for the first time since 2010.

Democrats' blue wave was real. This serves up an additional check on what the new but narrow Democratic majority will be able to do legislatively in the next two years. This will give Democrats the authority to delve deep into Trump's personal and professional missteps, including investigations into links to Russian Federation, as well as his long-withheld tax returns.

It's a pivotal moment for Nancy Pelosi - the beginning of a triumphal return as the nation's first female House speaker, or the start of a political reckoning over who should lead Democrats in the Donald Trump era.

Trump had aggressively campaigned in the closing days of the race, his focus on boosting Republicans in states that he carried in 2016. Their lesson from the last election was that "if Donald Trump is president, anybody can be president so I should run too, for at least Congress or state legislature". "Those that did not, say goodbye!"

Trump says Tuesday's "Big Win" for Republicans was achieved "all under the pressure of a Nasty and Hostile Media!"

Trump also took credit for Tuesday's results in another Tweet, saying "to any of the pundits or talking heads that do not give us proper credit for this great Midterm Election just remember two words-FAKE NEWS!"

Trump, 72, had hardened his rhetoric in recent weeks on issues that appealed to his conservative core supporters.

Turnout broke records for midterm elections in Midwestern battlegrounds such as Wisconsin and Iowa, though with conflicting results.

The party with the presidency often loses House seats in midterm elections. His take-no-prisoners approach troubled many Republicans seeking to appeal to moderate voters in suburban House districts, but Trump prioritized base voters in the deep-red states that could determine the fate of the Senate.

In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats.

In other words, Trump might relish taking on Pelosi and Nadler far more than he liked combatting outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan, a member of his own party who never really got with the Trump program and chafed at his political crudity.

There may be some room to work with Democrats on issues with bipartisan support such as an infrastructure improvement package or protections against prescription drug price increases.

Donald Trump: Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker 'a Strong Personality'
Senator John Cornyn, the chamber's No. 2 Republican, has said he backs a non-binding resolution expressing support for Mueller. About 40 people gathered Thursday night at Fountain Park in downtown Rock Hill and marched to U.S.

"I do think they will definitely try to impeach nearly immediately", said Meadows, even though Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders have downplayed that issue during the campaign.

Foreign policy has been an area that Trump has approached in a very personal way, sometimes antagonizing allies such as Canada while making what critics see as unduly warm overtures to traditional rivals or foes. To be fair, the Republicans retained control of the Senate and even picked up a pair of seats.

Also, Democratic leaders in the House through committee positions can conduct investigations into the conduct of government officials, including the use of subpoenas to get documents, the ability to compel witnesses to testify, and the holding of witnesses in contempt for not testifying or providing information.

A new generation of Democratic representatives, propelled by resurgent activism, is heading to the halls of Congress.

But the GOP added to its Senate edge and prevailed in some key races for governor Tuesday, beating back the potential of big Democratic gains across the board.

Schiff said he also he plans to reopen parts of the Intelligence panel's Russia-election interference inquiry that Democrats say was prematurely closed by Republicans.

Moscow denies meddling and Trump denies any collusion.

There were 15 Democratic women running on Senate ballots along with eight Republicans.

"Thank to you all!" even though his party just lost control of the House.

Americans elected the first Muslim and Native American women among a record 110 women projected to join Congress.

Republican businessman Mike Braun also beat the Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly in the battleground state of in. where Trump won by 20 percentage points back in 2016. Most polls initially showed leftist Democrat Andrew Gillum ahead in that race.

Democrats' dreams of the Senate majority, always unlikely, were shattered after losses in top Senate battlegrounds: Indiana, Missouri, Tennessee, North Dakota and Texas.
