In one of the hardest fought midterm elections, Democrats regained control of the House of Representatives in yesterday's midterm elections. Democrats will likely elect California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House, making her the most powerful House leader as well as third in line for presidential succession. This election may sharply alter our future for the next two years.
Democrats To Target President, Allies
In the run-up to the election, President Trump warned Americans of economic collapse and social unrest should the Democrats win one or more Houses of Congress in the midterm elections. With the expected Democratic attacks upon the Presidency, Mr. Trump's warnings are likely to come true.
Although Democrats control just one half of Congress, they have now been granted one of the most powerful weapons available - the power of the congressional subpoena. Due to rule changes, a committee chairman has the power to issue subpoenas without consulting the minority party. Thus, Presidential foes such as congresswoman Maxine Waters, who is expected to become chair of the House Financial Services Committee, will be able to use their position to attack the President. Ms. Waters was one of the first Democrats to call for the President's removal from office just days after his inauguration saying that "my greatest desire is to lead him right into impeachment." ("Waters scares Democrats with call for all-out war on Trump," Politico, 6/25/18.) She most recently told a group of supporters, "I wake up in the middle of the night and all I can think about is: I'm gonna get him ... I'm gonna get him. I'm gonna get him." ("Maxine Waters: "Impeachment! Impeachment! Impeachment! Impeachment!" "I'm Gonna Get Him," RealClearPolitics, 9/10/18.)
There is also concern that Speaker Pelosi will use the House's subpoena power to force the President to accept Democratic demands. Writing for The Hill, President Trump's 2016 inauguration spokesperson warned, "If you were wondering about the new negotiating posture Nancy Pelosi will have with President Trump if she winds up becoming Speaker of the House once again, it can be summed up in one word: extortion... [Pelosi] is talking about the threat of subpoena, and the pain she and her fellow Democrats can inflict on witnesses, as just another bargaining chip to force her opponents to give her what she wants... Taking Pelosi at her word, expect that every attempt to pass significant legislation will be met with threats of dragging Republican officials before House committees so Democratic lawmakers can grill them about the latest Russia conspiracy theories, examine decades old tax returns, or perhaps just make insinuations about their fondness for beer..." ("Beware Nancy Pelosi exploiting subpoena power to push policy," The Hill, 10/29/18.)
The Democrat agenda is not limited to political attacks upon the President - they also intend to combat the President on tax reform, Second Amendment rights, appointment of constitutional judges, and immigration.
