Pelosi Cites 'Examples of Progress' in Trump Accountability After Briefing

Trump hits back at Democratic claims of 'cover-up'

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz warned Democrats they are seeking to go above the law when it comes to trying to impeach President Donald Trump. "It just doesn't work that way".

President Donald Trump ripped into the Democratic party on May 23, claiming they've "become known as THE DO NOTHING PARTY!"

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) snapped at Kellyanne Conway, the White House counselor, on Wednesday after President Donald Trump scrapped a planned meeting with Democratic lawmakers due to their behavior just prior to the scheduled meeting, according to reports.

The day after Republicans lost control of the House of Representatives following last fall's midterm elections, President Trump took to both Twitter and a podium at the White House to warn Democrats not to investigate his administration or else he would use the power of the presidency to stop any new federal legislation. I'd be really good at that - that's what I do. "So get these phony investigations over with".

Repeatedly pressed on why the president seemed unwilling to multitask like other presidents under investigation have done before, Sanders maintained without evidence that, "I think the Democrats have shown that they're not capable of doing anything else". The Democrats began their investigations on the president after gaining control of the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm election and increased the number of probes after special counsel Robert Mueller concluded that Trump had not colluded with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 presidential election. Asked whether she's concerned about Trump's well-being, she replied, "I am".

China stokes trade war by cutting corporate taxes on tech companies
Lu said, "China is open to the door of dialogue, but sincerity is indispensable to make a consultation meaningful". President Donald Trump is providing another $16 billion in aid to USA farmers hurt by his trade policies.

It was as she emerged from this caucus meeting that Mrs Pelosi angered the president by suggesting to reporters that he was involved in a cover-up. "And I pray for the United States of America".

Pelosi, the leader of the majority Democrats in the House of Representatives, wants the investigations to continue, but has resisted the calls for an impeachment inquiry.

But Trump emphasized his position in a series of tweets afterward, saying in part, "You can't investigate and legislate simultaneously - it just doesn't work that way".

This week Mr Trump directed his former White House counsel Don McGahn to ignore a summons to testify to the House Judiciary Committee.

"You can't do it under these circumstances", he said.

Huawei is a victim of U.S. bullying, future remains unclear
Arm said in a statement that it's simply "complying with the latest restrictions set forth by the US government". We are working closely with Google to find out how Huawei can handle the situation and the impact from the U.S.

With one exception, Trump has held Democrats at bay, for the moment, in their pursuit of information and public oversight.

Most of his fellow Republicans dismiss the investigations as political assaults ahead of the 2020 election.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, one of the Democrats Trump rebuffed at the White House, described Trump's walk-out as a "temper tantrum". Shadowing the whole drama are the ongoing congressional investigations of whether Trump obstructed justice or committed other crimes and the demands by some Democrats to begin impeachment proceedings against him.

The lawyers for the Congress' House Financial Services and Intelligence committees said they needed access to documents from the banks to investigate possible "foreign influence in the United States political process" and possible money laundering from overseas. On Wednesday, committee Chairman Adam Schiff said the Justice Department had agreed to supply some of the subpoenaed documents, the first indication of a shift in position by that agency.

"For many of us, we think at least an impeachment inquiry would give us more ability to get witnesses to come to Congress".

US delays Huawei ban for 90 days
However, the company is still not allowed to launch any new products that require technology from any US-based company. This could "completely undermine" Huawei on 5G, it added.
