Trump Threatens to Investigate Democrats if They Probe His Administration

Trump Threatens to Investigate Democrats if They Probe His Administration

"Two can play that game!" the president Donald Trump said via Twitter.

In the closing week of campaigning, Trump turned away from the House where numerous most competitive races ran through suburbs, focusing his attention on Senate and gubernatorial races in states where he is relatively popular.

Democrats were not always shut out of these seats: In 2008, a strong year for the party, they even won a majority of the country's purely rural seats.

Democrats' takeover of the House in January will allow them to force administration officials to testify and provide documents.

"We've been having the discussion within the caucus", Welch said.

Several major races are still pending.

In the upper chamber, they captured Democratic seats in Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota, won a marquee battle in Texas, and fought a Florida race to a recount.

In suburban areas where key House races will be decided, voters skewed significantly toward Democrats by a almost 10-point margin. Democrats lead in nine of those, Republicans in 14.

President George W. Bush saw Republicans net two Senate seats in 2002, while President Richard Nixon and Republicans gained one seat in 1970, according to 538.com. The winners included Democrat Mikie Sherrill, a former Navy pilot and federal prosecutor who ran for a suburban Newark seat. The remaining 17 races were too close to project a victor Wednesday evening.

But he said there would be an onus on Democrats to explain precisely why they are seeking the information, in order to prove there is a legitimate legislative goal for any inquiry.

"It really could be a attractive, bipartisan type of situation".

She is also a fierce abortion opponent, with an A rating from the National Right to Life movement during her time in the House. Trump as usual summed up the ridiculous Republican pretzel logic by saying "the Democrat plan would obliterate ObamaCare" at a rally this week. In all, 91 Republican candidates got some kind of nod from Trump.

"We have a constitutional responsibility to have oversight", Pelosi said.

Beyond that, LePage made the Legislature's work more hard by often refusing to allow members of his Cabinet or other top administration officials to provide testimony to legislative committees. Some 59 percent supported GOP Sen.

She did not face a challenger in the general election, making her the first black member of the House of Representatives from MA . Haaland campaigned on a strong environmental message and has promised stronger regulations against corporations that pollute.

"The Senate is a pretty collegial place and even though we had big differences over things like taxes and judges, there were plenty of other things we did together and no reason that would stop simply because the House now becomes Democratic", he said.

"It's been growing for a long time, but I think it's different now, because a lot of these trends have come to a head", Cramer said.

The mixed verdict in the first nationwide election of Trump's young presidency underscored the limits of his hardline immigration rhetoric in America's evolving political landscape, where college-educated voters in the nation's suburbs rejected his warnings of a migrant "invasion". He predicted an "invasion" from the migrant caravan making its way toward the USA and decried the "radical" agenda of speaker-in-waiting Pelosi.

He said that holds true for the spending bills Congress must still negotiate by early December.

"Yeah, I can't imagine that that won't be on the agenda", McConnell said at a news conference Wednesday.

In fact, the incumbent president's party has lost an average of 37 seats in midterm elections since WWII.

Trump's read of historical election tallies depends on the outcome of the outstanding outcomes in Mississippi, Arizona and Florida.

"We've lost one, two, three seats tops", he said. And in New Jersey, Democrats re-elected embattled Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Joe Donnelly in IN and Claire McCaskill in Missouri. Jon Tester squeaked out a victory in Montana.

After two years of being blocked by the White House and the Trump Organization, Democrats hope the new year brings a new day on such issues as foreign government spending at Trump properties, Trump's foreign licensing deals, Trump administration ties to lobbyists and special interests, and spending by Trump's charitable foundation.

However, with a well-established majority in the Senate, the Republicans have managed to gather a larger amount of seats than they had before Midterms began.

(2) Governorships. Democrats took over GOP-held governorships in Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, and Wisconsin.

But Republicans held onto governor's mansions in OH and Florida, fending off challenges from strong left-wingers. She shocked many, including herself, last spring when she came out of nowhere to defeat 10-term Rep. Joe Crowley in New York's Democratic congressional primary.

Four tight races in California are still counting ballots and could go either way.
