Pelosi blocks vote on National Emergencies Act overhaul

There's probably a part of the president that likes the idea of standing alone against all the weak-kneed forces of Washington unwilling to protect America from an invasion of murdering rapist drug dealers Waldman says

Since assuming the speakership in January, Pelosi has said that clear evidence and bipartisan support were needed for impeachment, despite the persistent efforts of Democratic colleagues and her own personal misgivings about Trump's fitness for office.

Under the emergency declaration Trump signed on February 15, he would take money from other federal programs to build the barrier he says is needed to curb illegal immigration and the flow of illicit drugs. And the votes come as the GOP has spent weeks debating how to soften their blow.

But Trump rejected those efforts Wednesday afternoon, telling GOP senators he could not support a bill proposed by Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) had been wavering as he eyed Lee's proposal, which would curtail presidents' abilities to declare future national emergencies without impacting the current bill.

The Republican-led Senate is set to deal President Donald Trump a rebuke on his declaration of a national emergency at the Mexican border, with the only remaining question how many GOP senators will join Democrats in defying him. "All that's left to do is to vote".

"After Pelosi's comments, Republicans countered, asking why Democrats would have issued 81 document requests to people associated with President Trump if they're not already planning on impeachment".

Steyer added that while he believes Neal will eventually ask for the presidents tax returns, the congressman needs to "get this show on the road".

President Donald Trump and Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (puh-LOH'-see) agree, at least for now: He shouldn't be impeached. The resolution now goes to the House, which approved a very similar measure earlier this year, to be passed again.

Lee told a reporter for The Hill that he'll vote for the disapproval resolution.

Senior CPM leader MY Tarigami said deferment of assembly polls will send out wrong signals to people within and outside the state. The Election Commission of India announced the election schedule for the entire country on Sunday.

This was supposed to give cover to Republicans, enabling them to stand with Trump's national emergency while creating the impression that they are generally concerned by the issues raised by the president's abuse of power.

The president is facing investigations on multiple fronts -- from Muller to the Southern District of NY to House Democrats on Capitol Hill. As Tyler Sinclair, Morning Consult's vice president, puts it: "Backing Trump's national emergency declaration could be politically toxic for senators up for reelection bids in 2020". Maybe Republicans did notice the 2018 election. Chris Murphy, a Democrat from CT who sponsored the Yemen resolution.

"I'm voting with you, Mr. President", Oklahoma Republican Sen.

The vote on the Yemen resolution was not overwhelmingly Republican, with just seven defections.

Senate Republicans will now be forced to vote Thursday on the resolution terminating Trump's national emergency because the House passed one recently, and under the law, the Senate is required to act on it. Lee, Tillis and Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Rand Paul of Kentucky.

Some Republicans discounted the idea that the party was being torn apart by the back-to-back votes.

"No. I don't think he is [unfit]". Tim Scott, a Republican from SC. "And it will be, I think, all very successful, regardless of how it all works out, but it's going to be very successful", Trump told reporters on Wednesday. Jim Risch, an Idaho Republican who's the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told CNN.
