Pelosi Snatches Back Office Space That Paul Ryan Gave To Pence

In New York, federal prosecutors are examining the president's role in hush-money payments shortly before the election to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal to keep them quiet about affairs they said they had with Trump.

Steyer is the head of a campaign, Need To Impeach, that calls on members to engage in political actions around impeaching President Donald Trump.

"I think the more candidates the better", he said.

Mr. Pence is an annoyance, and a snoop, as well as an evangelical bigot, and Pelosi wants him to do his Trump-thumping somewhere else. She was effectively conceding in advance that the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, widely expected to be submitted soon, will not find evidence to back the claims of "collusion" between Trump and the Russian government. "While we have impeachment authority, we need to be very cognizant of what the American people believe, and I agree with the speaker, that the probability of success is low, and the distraction would be major".

Yet, in a second post on his favorite social media site, the president signaled he has a clear understanding of the impeachment process, asking how the House could impeach him since he "has done nothing wrong and impeachment is for "high crimes and misdemeanors"?"

As for the two-year campaign by the Democrats denouncing Trump as a Russian agent and declaring his 2016 election victory to be the result of "meddling" by Vladimir Putin, Pelosi was silent. If that were true, then the Democratic Party, as a representative of American imperialist interests, would have no choice but to wage all-out war against the president.

"The now-public approach could help insulate Democrats from future criticism if the party does move forward with impeachment".

Republicans gave Pence, who serves as president of the Senate, an additional first-floor office in the U.S. Capitol after Trump's inauguration in 2017.

The Trump campaign quickly spoke out on Pelosi's comments and argued that Democrats running for office should be asked if they think the president should be impeached.

"There has been strong bipartisan support for Estonia, NATO and transatlantic relations in both houses of Congress", Ms Kaljulaid said at her meeting with Ms Pelosi according to a press release.

The week after Cohen's testimony, House Democrats on the Judiciary Committee did exactly what the vast majority of voters said they should do: They issued document requests to more than 80 people and entities in support of their investigation into Trump.

On Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez said: "Legally I don't think it's something that can ever be 100 percent off the table, but if that's how she feels right now I respect that".
