Now that Democrats have taken control of the House, that means (D)s will become the chairmen and chairwomen of various committees.
Democrats holding the gavels also means that the Trump White House is bracing for a caravan of subpoenas covering the Russia investigation to the president’s tax returns.
Here’s who’s likely setting the agenda for seven key House committees:
“There are serious and credible allegations the Russians may possess financial leverage over the president, including perhaps the laundering of Russian money through his businesses,” Schiff wrote in an Oct. 12 op-ed. “It would be negligent to our national security not to find out.”
“But the Senate having failed to do its proper constitutionally mandated job of advise and consent, we are going to have to do something to provide a check and balance, to protect the rule of law and to protect the legitimacy of one of our most important institutions.”
“This is not about trying to get any retribution. It is about trying to bring us back to a sense of integrity.”
What do you think?
Which of these policies (if any) do you support? Any more you'd like to see? Take action above and tell your reps, then share your thoughts below.

I’m so glad that finally one part of government is going to set checks and balances on the president
Make sure Trump’s agenda gets blocked completely. Obstruct just like the Republicans obstructed Obama for 6 years until we can vote the criminal out in 2020 or until he gets impeached.
Protect Robert Mueller!!!
PRESIDENT TRUMP, WE ALL “HAVE YOUR SIX”. As we expected, we are going to see that the Democratic House under the supervision of Rep Pelosi will have “NO” repeat “NO” intentions of working with OUR President or the Republican members of Congress. We are going to see the Hypocritical, “Holier-Than-Thou”, “SANCTIMONIOUS”, DEMOCRATS doing everything imaginable in their power, to hinder President Trumps Agenda which has advanced the past failed 8 years under the Obama administrations, driven by the Schumer and Pelosi failed Leadership. The Key DEMOCRATIC Agenda items to be implemented after they assume control of the U.S.House: * “TAX & SPEND” will a primarily goal. * Impeachment of President Trump. * Impeachment of Justices 👨⚖️ Kavanaugh. * Maintaining the U.S. Southern boarder open. They will fail and fail the more that they try. 😈 SO LET THE FUN AND GAMES BEGIN FOLKS 😈 SneakyPete ..... 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸. 11*7*18 .....
I’m fine with these things as long as meaningful legislation is also on the agenda.
Immigration reform must be one of the top two priorities. You cannot expect the Latino community to support the Democratic Party without Democrats making a serious effort to get decent immigration legislation placed on Trump’s desk for signature. We still have kids and parents separated, you must fix this with legislation immediately! If you do not fix this, we will most certainly have another 4 years of Trump and Republican Control of both Houses in 2020!
All of these seem like a good start to bring back real American values.
I’d like to see them do all of this. The only thing Democrat’s are good for is...oh wait, Democrats are good for nothing.
That’s a pretty hefty wish list! And We have a Republican Senate and a conservative Supreme Court!
holding trump accountable is important,but I hope they work to undo the damage done by this regime as well.but in the meantime,people need healthcare,housing and living wages.they need social security,we need to expand medicaid,and we need justice reforms.end the drug war and for profit prisons.
Like always, the Dems will promise utopia to their constituents paid for by other people. The top 10% of earners already pay 92% of the federal tax. When will you learn not to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs? Mueller has already wasted $40 million. Stop the hate show that still has found NO evidence!
We will see. I’m hoping we just get to work and get things done. Let’s come together y’all. Starts with our leadership in government!
These are all important. And which committee: 1. cleans up voter suppression? 2. ends Citizen United? 3. ends gerrymandering? 4. creates a day off for voting? 5. standardized voting machines in all states? 6. mandatory voting space adequate for the population? 7. Assure polls are properly manned and supplied 8. Laws put into place to prosecute severely anyone caught tampering with voting rights There are only 2 years to ensure a fair election in 2020 These things have to be remedied to insure that elections run smoother!
They all sound good to me! But how about the emoluments claws? Trump has been using that portion of the constitution as toilet paper since the inauguration!
About time Trumpian toes to the 🔥
Most of this is utter nonsense and a waste of taxpayer money...
So bad, when will we ever have term limits to throw the imbeciles out of office that waste tax payers money on political games instead of helping America.
I’m tired of the democrats being obstructionists and not getting things done just because they don’t want President Trump to have a successful presidential term. President Trump will approve any good bill presented to him regardless of which party drafts such a bill. If the democrats really care about the citizens of this country they will work WITH the President and not against him.
The fascist liberal democrats have no party platform. All they have is hate for President Trump. There was no Russian collusion but they want more investigations. They don’t give a dam about our borders, just let more caravan’s come, they want to abolish ICE, who cares if illegal migrants are killing US citizens and they want to raise our taxes and keep the felled Obamacare. This is the new fascist, socialist,liberal democrats. God help America and it’s legal citizens.
OPERATION “Delay, Hinder, Delay, Resist” is on full bore. SneakyPete ..... 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸. 11*8*18 .....
That sounds like the typical nonsense you would expect from childish democrats. I would love to see a few of them act like adults, step up and recognize the good that Trump has done for this country, and agree to work with him to accomplish more of the economic successes that Trump has done so well with. Instead, Democrats are worried about Russia, which is a good thing except that there is no reason to believe Russia wanted to help Trump in any way. In fact, the investigations that are completed show that the Russians, if they helped anyone, helped Hillary. Then the next thing they are worried about is making sure that 4% of the US population (LGBT) has more rights than the other 96% of the population. That’s called discrimination. And then, of course, most importantly that have to make sure that Trump won’t say anything to offend the cry-baby’s that are so easily offended by anything he says. I nearly compared those political cry baby’s to three year olds, but I don’t want to insult toddlers by that comparison. Come on! Let’s be adults! Grow up, put up with what you don’t like, and help shape things in a good way rather than pouting in a corner! Democrats and Republicans, lets come together and Make America Great Again.
Great ideas to start with
Full Steam Ahead: Russia Investigations! Investigate the Tax-Cheat-in-Chief: Trump DO IT NOW !!!
Cnn jim acosta’s white house pass cancellation is an insult to all of us. Will someone tell moron he works for the people and is accountable to the people. Congress do your work now and cancel moron’s pass to the oval office immediately. He is a criminal. Lock him up! Enough is enough.
