CA Rep. Brad Sherman to introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump

At 78 years old, Nancy Pelosi remains the only woman to have ever been the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Pelosi was cheered by fellow Democrats when she said in a speech on the House floor that the legislation would be voted on later on Thursday.

"I've made it clear on several occasions, and let me say it again: The Senate will not take up any proposal that does not have a real chance of passing this chamber and getting a presidential signature".

She followed up, however, by acknowledging that Democratic party leadership should "evolve".

The new Congress is like none other.

In person, she was even more direct, reportedly telling a reception, "We're gonna impeach that mother**ker".

The president summoned reporters to an unannounced White House briefing Thursday, only to reiterate his position on funding the wall and to introduce a host of border-security and immigration officials who expressed support for his hard line.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, reiterated today that the Senate will only take up Government spending legislation that Trump supports. That ensures the shutdown will continue, clouding the first days of the new session.

Though Republicans lost dozens of seats in the House, they grew their majority in the Senate. A handful of Republicans broke ranks on each measure to vote "yes" with the Democrats. "It has nothing to do with politics; it has to do with a wall is an immorality between countries".

Nancy Pelosi, a veteran Democrat brawler and vocal critic of Canada's trade agreement with the United States and Mexico, resumed her role Thursday as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, becoming the first woman in history to hold the gavel twice in her political career. Newly elected Rep. Lucy McBath of Georgia, an anti-gun violence advocate, dedicated hers to her slain teenage son, Jordan Davis. She was forced to navigate simmering party unease that saw dozens of House Democrats and candidates signalling a desire for change at the top.

The democratic socialist characterized the rules package on Wednesday as a "dark political maneuver created to hamstring progress on healthcare" and other legislation.

The comments from Senators Cory Gardner of Colorado and Susan Collins of ME - the only Senate Republicans running for reelection in states Trump lost - pointed to cracks within the GOP that could grow as the shutdown nears the two-week mark.

Led by rebels including Reps. He faced six "no" votes from his now-shrunken GOP minority.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump praised Cpl.

Everywhere President Donald Trump looks, he sees a wall.

Rep. Brad Sherman (D., Calif.) said impeachment would be in the national interest, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday. Elizabeth Warren of MA, mocking her claim to Native American ancestry. New arrivals wander the halls in a daze.

Pelosi responded to criticism from Trump that she took a trip to Hawaii over the holidays, while he canceled his planned visit to Florida because of the shutdown.

Nielsen, participating in the meeting by teleconference, had data about unaccompanied minors crossing the border and a spike in illegal crossings, and she tried to make the case to the group that current funding levels won't suffice, according to the White House.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Missouri, opened the House prayer asking at "a time fraught with tribalism at home and turbulence abroad" that lawmakers "become the architects of a kindlier nation".

"It's a new day in America", tweeted Ilhan Omar, a Somali refugee elected from Minnesota.

Pelosi began her campaign to regain the speaker's job, which she held from 2007 until 2011, immediately after the election. "Today, we return to that same airport on the eve of my swearing in as the first Somali-American in Congress".
