Trump faces investigation blitz from Democratic House of Representatives

Divided results Democrats gain control of U.S. House — but GOP expands Senate majority

Divided results Democrats gain control of U.S. House — but GOP expands Senate majority

If they do so, it will signal a "war-like posture", Trump said.

"There's so much to the Trump administration that could be investigated, it's an unprecedented situation of major business entanglements around the world", said Dana Allin, senior fellow with the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

He said: "I'm proud of what happened".

The GOP is expected to add to its Senate edge, but Democrats regained control of the House.

A Democratic House isn't going to put the USA back in the Iranian nuclear accord or the Paris climate agreement, and is unlikely to challenge Trump's protectionist line on trade. But in Kentucky, one of the top Democratic recruits, retired Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath, lost her bid to oust to three-term Rep. Andy Barr. And it seems highly unlikely that any Republican will vote for the woman their party has demonized in thousands of campaign ads.

Trump's show of support for Pelosi is not entirely out of character. Both are deal-makers. In 2007, Trump praised her as "the best", when she was first sworn in as speaker.

"That is a hopeful story about our democracy, about the power we have when we come together to demand change".

"Tomorrow will be a new day in America", said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who's in line to become the next House speaker should Democrats take the majority.

Trump said that he was considering changes to his administration in the aftermath of the election, including to his cabinet.

Trump forced Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign.

Of the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation that has shadowed his administration for more than 18 months, Mr Trump said, "I could end it right now" but "I let it go on".

"Think of how his position with Republicans improves", Asman said about Trump.

But Pelosi pointedly told supporters the Democratic victory was about "restoring the Constitution and checks and balance to the Trump administration.It is about stopping the [Republicans] and Trump administration's assault" on two government-run medical insurance programs for older and impoverished Americans "and people living with pre-existing medical conditions". "You can't do them both", he said.

He further referred to Acosta as "the enemy of the people".

When Acosta continued to push Trump with questions about the federal investigation into Russia's involvement in the Trump campaign, the president called the reporter a "rude, bad person" and, later, identified him as "the enemy of the people".

Mr Trump told a black reporter who asked whether his self-professed nationalism would embolden white nationalists that it was "such a racist question".

The president also suggested that, somehow, losing a House majority could be beneficial to his agenda because Democrats will want to work with him.

The incoming class of lawmakers could have a stark impact on politics in the nation's capital, particularly within the Democratic Party, after a midterm election that was widely seen as a referendum on Trump's first term. Almost two-thirds said Trump was a reason for their vote.

With three more committee members running for other offices, come January, half of the 24 Republicans who wrote the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will no longer be in Congress.

But Democrats have to be careful not to overplay their hand, and risk incurring backlash from voters who don't want Congress to trigger a constitutional crisis.

But Republicans are on course to increase their representation from 51 to 54 in the 100-seat Senate.

The House Judiciary Committee will focus on whether Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because Comey declined to go easy on Mike Flynn - the president's friend and national security adviser - as Comey has said the president demanded.

Trump also took credit for Tuesday's results in another tweet, saying, "To any of the pundits or talking heads that do not give us proper credit for this great Midterm Election just remember two words-FAKE NEWS!"

President Donald Trump, emboldened by Republican election wins in the Senate and scornful of GOP candidates he felt didn't sufficiently embrace his support, delivered a stark warning to the new Democratic House majority on Wednesday: Investigate me, and I'll investigate you - and the government will grind to a halt.
