Trump, Democrats square off in court over Deutsche Bank documents

That's into the origins of the Russia claims, the apparent coordination between a hireling for the Hillary Clinton campaign and Russian sources, false claims assembled in a "dossier", the use of that "dossier" as evidence in federal court, and the ultimate spying not just on the 2016 Trump campaign but possibly of the Trump presidency - on the orders of the administration of Barack Obama.

Trump for almost the entirety of his presidency has charged that the FBI special counsel investigation was a "witch hunt". 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. She fears it would play into Trump's hands.

It also comes as Pelosi is balancing the calls for impeachment with the restraint of members from divided districts who helped flip the House to Democratic control and now face tough re-elections 2020.

"After two years of an expensive and comprehensive Witch Hunt, the Democrats don't like the result and they want a DO OVER".

A visibly disgusted Mr. Trump responded with an impromptu White House press conference where he said he won't work with Democrats while they are seeking to impeach him and continue their "phony investigations".

The Huawei ban is MUCH bigger than you think
For its part, Huawei has described the US action against it as "bullying", plain and simple, which is certainly accurate. The Chinese company has narrowed the gap with Samsung with its business expansion in emerging markets.

"I ran on many issues, including checks and balances".

This came after White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on CNN that it was "lunacy" and "insane" for Democrats to think Pelosi could accuse Trump of a "cover-up", as she did just before the meeting Wednesday.

"I was extremely calm yesterday with my meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, knowing that they would say I was raging, which they always do, along with their partner, the Fake News Media", Trump said in a tweet. People expect me to be a leader and do the right thing. When that fails, we'll issue subpoenas and negotiate some more. When you're done we can talk. "And if at the end of the day, we do our duty and the Senate doesn't, then the shame will be on the other side".

When all that fails, House Democrats now look like they'll wait while the disputes wend slowly through the Courts, maybe all the way to the 5-4 Republican majority Supreme Court, which may well take us beyond the 2020 election. Lawmakers in Congress from both parties have signaled they want an infrastructure package completed this year as industry groups warn that the nation's roads, bridges, ports, water systems and other public works are in decrepit condition and in desperate need of fix and upgrades.
