IT BEGINS: First Democrat-Majority Bill to Target Trump Tax Returns in January

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.30.18

The new Democratic majority’s first order of business in the House of Representatives will target President Trump’s tax returns in January; setting the stage for a high-stakes legal showdown with the Commander-in-Chief.

According to Fox News, the first piece of legislation  -titled H.R. 1- will target the President’s personal finances; making it a federal mandate that all presidents fully disclose their income taxes.

“But the legislation is largely symbolic, as it has little chance of actually becoming a law. The Republican-held Senate, which increased its majority after the midterm elections, is unlikely to vote for the bill. Trump himself could also refuse to sign it,” writes Fox.

“They’re under audit, they have been for a long time, they’re extremely complex, people wouldn’t understand them,” Trump said earlier this year. “Nobody turns over a return when it’s under audit.”

NEVER NANCY? Liberal Democrats Move to BLOCK Pelosi as Speaker of the House

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.15.18

A group of left-leaning Democratic Representatives moved this week to block Nancy Pelosi from becoming the Speaker of the House; revealing the existence of a mysterious “letter” signed by at least 17 legislators who pledged to vote against the party leader.

“Fox News has confirmed at least 17 House Democrats, including incumbents and incoming members, have signed on to a document saying they will not support Pelosi on the House floor for speaker. A Democrat familiar with the effort says they are trying to add more names before the letter is publicly released,” writes Fox.

If the numbers hold and vote against Pelosi on the House floor, she would fail to secure enough support to regain the gavel when Democrats retake control in January.

“After we, as Democrats, make our selection, our new members should not be pressured into voting against our party’s nominee on the House floor in January — when the choice will be between the Democratic candidate and the Republican candidate,” said leading Rep. Elijah Cummings. “That will only play into the hands of House Republicans and President Trump.”

CLOSER AND CLOSER: Another ‘Never Nancy’ Democrat FLIPS for Pelosi

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.27.18

A recently elected Democratic congresswoman now backs Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House; reversing course from her campaign pledge to vote for new leadership should her party retake control.

Rep.-Elect Jahana Hayes threw her support behind Pelosi while speaking with MSNBC this week; saying “No one has asked me for a vote other than Nancy Pelosi.

“I came into Washington with an open mind. I said I want to hear all the information, and I want to cast a vote that’s best for the people in my state. No one has asked me for a vote other than Nancy Pelosi. You know, last week we were here for orientation and we caucused and I was of the mind, put up or shut up,” Hayes said. “Nobody came to me, and at this point I think it’s unreasonable for anyone to expect a vote when they haven’t even asked. So I’m prepared to support Nancy Pelosi in caucus tomorrow when votes are cast.”
