Nancy Pelosi: Democrats Will Start Seeking Trump Tax Returns

House Democrats to seek Trump's tax returns, Pelosi says

Trump's other leading opponent in the struggle over wall funding, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), also dismissed the claim.

Sen. Chuck Schumer replied with a tweet of his own: "Mr. President: If you say Mexico is going to pay for the wall (which I don't believe), then I guess we don't have to!"

"I wish that the press would spend a lot more time on what we need to do here to meet the needs of the American people instead of morning, noon and night allegations about the president", Ms. Pelosi said.

Banks said he is supportive of President Trump's demand for Congress to set aside $5 billion for the construction of a border wall along the southern border. But now his tone has softened.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi appears to have sealed her return as House speaker when the new Congress convenes next month. We can do an nearly ideal job if we have the wall and proper border security, and that's what we're going to do for the American people.

"The fact is they've always supported fences and walls and partitions". The House adjourned for six days soon after his remarks.

"I am confident we will have the will and the tools to finally expose Trump's financial history to sunlight", he said. Homeland Security would be responsible for building the wall along the border with Mexico. "Let's fund the government".

Democrats, meanwhile, are not inclined to give an inch, as seen by the backing Pelosi received after confronting Trump during their televised meeting in the Oval Office.

After Epic Undercut Steam, Discord Tries To One-Up The Epic Store
Previously, we learned that Steam takes a whopping 30% cut for distribution of games. The remaining 10 percent covers operating costs, apparently, and could be lowered.

The former Speaker of the House spent the last several weeks lobbying reluctant Democrats as she tried to secure enough votes for the House's top post.

As Politico reports, Republicans are even trying to persuade Trump to accept this deal by arguing to him that he's better off going to war over this with Democrats in January, because he can knock the new majority off of its game before it gets started. Democrats will vote on that proposal in the new year, and it could very well fail.

They went in so confident that they had cornered the president and he would have to agree to their terms, that their shock was visible when the president took responsibility.

The mood on Capitol Hill has quickly shifted as newly elected members arrive to set up offices on Capitol Hill and dozens of Republicans head for the exits. The House majority leader noted that Senate Democrats have pledged to block the bill from receiving the necessary 60 votes.

Hoyer and other Democrats said Republicans should approve six of the remaining seven appropriations bills needed to keep the government open, and pass a separate measure covering the Department of Homeland Security at current levels through September 30.

It was clear by the president's reaction that he will shut down the government without funding for the wall.

For now, Republicans still control the House, the Senate and the White House, she reminded listeners. "They will also incentivize those in power to build our bench, something our party has struggled with for years".
