Nancy Pelosi Won't Rule out the Indictment of President Trump

Ocasio-Cortez to vote against Pelosi rules package on first day in Congress over 'paygo'

Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Pelosi, tweeted in response to Khanna on Wednesday, pointing out that the federal law remains in place regardless of what rules House Democrats adopt - and that including the measure in the rules would allow Democrats to "designate appropriate offsets" rather than allow the Trump administration to make the across-the-board cuts mandated in law.

"It's on", Democrat Hakeem Jeffries, a new member of House leadership who is seen by some as a potential future House speaker, tweeted Wednesday.

Reps. Mark Pocan (D., Wis.) and Pramila Jayapal (D., Wash.), the co-chairs of the Congressional Progressive Caucus for the 116th Congress, said that they will vote for the rules package.

"Tomorrow, we seize the majority".

Among the first tasks of the 116th Congress will be ending a almost two-week government shutdown that has left one quarter of federal agencies shuttered due to lapsed funding.

Florida Minimum Wage Increases
Few are there yet, but many states have ratcheted up wages through phased-in laws and adjustments for inflation. Minimum wage workers in Vermont and ME are getting raises along with the new year.

House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi told President Donald Trump he will get "nothing" to fund his southern border wall, in comments suggesting there is little progress in ending a budget deadlock that has shut down the federal government for nearly two weeks.

While they refuse to explicitly fund the wall, they have shown willingness to give an extra $1.6 billion to border security.

Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that she believed a sitting president could be indicted, disagreeing with Justice Department guidelines.

She added a link to Khanna's objection.

"All three of these things are needed". Pelosi is expected to win her speaker election in the early afternoon.

U.S. fires tear gas at migrants on Mexican border
"The deployments were not directed at the migrants attempting entry on the USA side or at the fence line", the agency insisted. American activists accompanying the migrants shouted at agents in English not to fire tear gas because children were present.

In a nod to a bipartisan group of centrists, legislation or amendments with broad support would get special privileges in committees and on the House floor - that provision brought a public endorsement from a Rep. Tom Reed, R-N.Y., a rare move on what is nearly always a party-line vote.

The House and Senate gavel into session Thursday at noon (1700 GMT), with the new Congress sworn in shortly thereafter. Think about all those presidents she's endured, right?

The first two Native American women and first two Muslim women were also elected.

Pelosi replied later that day, blaming Trump for the "irresponsible" shutdown.

Should the House manage to impeach Trump, removing him from office would be hard. "It's not something that I'm stirring the pot on".
