5 chairpersons who want to make life more difficult for Trump
The President – not a stranger who can call calling or political wiping – has stung some of the new chairpersons on Twitter over the past two years, and he has decades of history with one of the new leaders. Despite Trump's statements that he is ready to play hard with the Democrats investigators, there is a new crew of Democrats in Washington – rising from the party's return to majority in the House of Representatives – who have pre-empties ready
Trump's story with Rep. Jerry Nadler from New York dates back to the 1980s when they fought over real estate in Manhattan while Nadler was in the New York State Assembly before leaving was elected to the congress. In his 2000 book "The America We Deserve" Trump Nadler called one of the most fearful hacks in contemporary politics.
"This guy wanted to build an iron train station on the same property I wanted to build a park on and create the best middle-income apartments in New York," Trump wrote in his book.
Nadler will now head the Judiciary Committee, which will hold him responsible for any democratic impeachment. His committee will also be responsible for dealing with a report by Special Representative Robert Mueller and any dispute with the publication.
Nadler's committee is also responsible for Trump's petition question: Immigration, an area where Nadler is closely monitored in the new Congress ̵
1; from family separation to changes in asylum laws –
to talk about impeachment, even if there is one A considerable proportion of Democrats' advocates – not to mention some legislators of the House – are already making progress.
This does not mean that Nadler did not avoid the word "me" at all. 19659005] Asked about CNN's "state of union" earlier this month, whether Trump had been convicted in Michael Cohen's crime of paying women for their silence during the election campaign, Nadler said, "It would be insulting offenses."
But he said impeachment is another matter.
"They do not necessarily impose an impeachment on the president because he has made an impeachment," Nadler said. "There are several things to look at."
If Democrats try to prosecute Trump, Nadler will be one of the most important Democrats in the Cabinet – and will probably face the breadth of Trump's setback.  Rep. Adam Schiff, a Californian Democrat, answers questions about a committee meeting in the US in February in Washington. It is expected that Schiff will take over the chairmanship of the House Intelligence Committee as of January.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the incoming chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is no stranger to the trump tongues with Twitter tongues. As a leading Democrat in the investigation into the House of Republicans in Russia in 2017 and 2018, Ship was a constant television presence that broke the latest revelations about Russia and Trump's team.
The president has used several nicknames on Twitter for the Californian Democrat – – Sleazy Adam Schiff, Liddle's # 39; Adam Schiff and most recently "Little Adam Schitt" – a token of his notoriety among Trump's Democratic critics.
Ship accused Republicans of failing to investigate ties between Trump's team and Russia He pledged to resume Russia's investigation of his committee in several areas.
Among them: Ship wants to investigate questions about Russian money laundering, find out who Donald Trump Jr. called when he called the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 and interviewed officials The committee has not spoken yet, like Michael Flynn.
Ship is a quiet lawmaker, but he has shown that he is ready to make headlines.
"There is a very real prospect that on the day that Donald Trump leaves office, the Department of Justice can accuse him of being the first president for quite some time to face the real prospect of imprisonment." Ship said on CBS earlier this month. "Face the nation."
In the new Congress, MEP Richard Neal of Massachusetts, a focused democrat who has the task to request Trump's tax return. While modern presidential candidates have publicized their return, Trump has defied the norm that the Democrats believe needs to be addressed.
Under the IRS rules, there are only three people on Capitol Hill who can petition the US Department of State for tax returns from the President: the Senate Finance Committee Chairman, the Joint Tax Committee Chief, and the House Ways and Central Committee Chair. Neal is the only Democrat.
While Neal has said he wants to make sure that applying for returns does not distract from the work of his committee on infrastructure, healthcare and oversight of the GOP's tax bill, a source close to the CNN said that Neal I hope that Trump will voluntarily give his tax returns, he submits the president's allies. Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani told CNN that the president would be prepared to defend himself before a formal petition.
The source familiar with the process told CNN that Neal was ready to ask the Ministry of Finance for the New Year's earnings. When exactly he would do it will be discussed.
Trump's tax returns are not only of interest to Neal. Other committee committee chairs said the information within the returns could promote their own oversight.
"I think it contains a lot of information of interest to my committee, for example, we want to know exactly what … this President's sources of income were," the MEP said. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the expected chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Cummings continued, "He has made all sorts of allegations that he has no ties with Russia and told us that he has no relations with Russia, and we find that this is not right, so there were a lot of allegations But I think the tax returns in which he has to swear that the information is correct would tell us a lot. "
After nearly a decade in the minority, Cummings may have the most vastest authority to investigate the Trump administration of a Democrat on Capitol Hill. Cummings, despite his deep and focused voice, is cautious, but strategically, in relation to his committee's plans.
A slide for Republican chairpersons like Deputy Darrell Issa from California, former MP Jason Chaffetz from Utah, and MPs. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, Cummings has argued that he will be looking for answers rather than headlines – although he is unlikely to avoid them with his hammer.
Cummings has taken his committee a very clear path. Earlier this month, he again sent 51 letters he had sent in the minority and called on the government to comply by 11 January. The letters ranged from questions about the Cabinet Secretary's journey, to immigration, to security checks by the administration. However, Cummings has also warned that he does not want his committee to use only the weaknesses identified by Trump.
"I believe that what we are doing in this Congress next year will have an impact on the next 50 to 100 years," said Cummings. "We will cautiously deal with subpoenas … There should be something that has a compelling interest in the citizens of the United States and should be something that falls within our jurisdiction, so there are certain criteria that have to be met do not expect to issue summons – even the 64 we asked for, because there are so many things to be backed up, and we'll never have the chance to do anything.
