Donald Trump claims victory in midterms despite losing House control

These Democrats are poised to take over some key House panels President Trump speaks at a rally at the Huntington Tri State Airport on Nov. 2 in Huntington

The president name-checked several GOP candidates who lost Tuesday.

Areas where the two parties could work together include economy, healthcare, trade, infrastructure and lowering the cost of prescription drugs, Trump said.

Separately, House Judiciary Democrats called on Whitaker in a letter bit.ly/2PPqJ4q to recuse himself and keep the Mueller investigation under the supervision of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a career Justice Department official who has given the special counsel full scope to pursue leads.

Trump said Tuesday's results were "very close to a complete victory", despite Republicans losing control of the House.

Earlier Wednesday, he praised House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi while warning Democrats against investigating his administration.

Trump's comments come ahead of his scheduled news conference Wednesday morning.

CNN said the numbers in each category tilted largely to Democrats, with 84 of the projected female House winners coming from the Democratic Party and 14 from the Republican side. And it seems highly unlikely that any Republican will vote for the woman their party has demonized in thousands of campaign ads.

Democrats said Republican lawmakers will no longer be able to protect Trump from a watchful Congress.

A Schumer spokesman did not respond to a question on whether the Democratic leader is willing to cut more deals to expedite votes on judges in exchange for something else.

Protests to protect Robert Mueller planned nationwide after Jeff Sessions firing
Bipartisan bills to protect Mueller from politically motivated removal have been introduced in the House and Senate. Trump, who did not speak with Sessions himself, then ducked questions about Sessions' fate at the news conference.


Nadler's panel would handle any effort to impeach Trump, depending on the outcome of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA elections and possible Trump campaign collusion with Moscow.

Republicans, he said, had expected the massive tax package to solidify their hold on the House, but the election results demonstrate it fell on "deaf ears" with voters. The resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, which will necessitate a replacement, is a flawless example of how important it is to control the Senate.

In the weeks leading up to the Midterms, Trump ramped up the rhetoric when it came to shading the Democrats.

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who is expected to become head of the House Intelligence Committee, said they will give full support to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. "I'm not a big fan of yours, either, to be honest", he said. Trump called the investigation "a disgrace", saying it "should never have been started, because there is no crime". "He won't show us his tax returns". Unlike previous presidents, Trump has refused to make public, Trump repeated prior explanations that they were under audit and that his lawyers have told him not to but said he would "certainly have an open mind" about releasing them when the IRS audit ends.

Kennedy, host of "Kennedy" on Fox Business Network, said President Trump endorsed Rep. Nancy Pelosi for House Speaker because she's the "perfect foil for him".

"You are a rude, bad person", he told Acosta in front of the world's media. Hua said China is ready to work with the United States to handle differences properly, promote cooperation on the basis of mutual benefit and push forward the development of bilateral ties in the right direction.

Mr Trump has threatened to retaliate for any Democratic investigations with his own probes in the Senate into alleged "leaks of classified information". "Two can play that game!" the president said on Twitter.

HOUSE INVESTIGATIONS. Democrats have big legislative plans for their newly won House majority, with an agenda that includes such things as bills meant to preserve the Voting Rights Act. The success mirrored last year's closely watched race for governor, where Democrats trounced Republicans in all three statewide races in 2017 and won more seats in the state House than virtually anyone expected.
