  • What constitutional powers do the Democrats get by winning the House?

"This doesn't mean we go looking for a fight". That message, Ingraham said, is going to be a "tough sell" in 2020.

Nancy Pelosi has already enlisted an unlikely supporter to be speaker of the House of Representatives, a post that would put her second in line to the presidency after vice-president Mike Pence. "We own the ground, we are not yielding one grain of sand".

Almost 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate, while about 25 percent said they voted to express support for Trump. What Putin would not favor would be investigations or sanctions that would further damage the well-connected Russian oligarchs believed to have links to Trump, or to have helped fund USA meddling efforts.

There also could be pressure to impeach Trump, though chances of removal from office by a Republican-controlled Senate are remote.

The Kremlin shrugged off the midterm election results and concerns that a Democratic-controlled House would increase the pressure on Russian Federation.

The Democratic victory in the U.S. House of Representatives could echo from Moscow to Beijing to Riyadh, with empowered Democrats now able to launch new investigations into President Donald Trump's global business empire and his political dealings with the rest of the world.

He said: "These chairs will start holding hearings of Trump administration officials". The ties between the two men, who are said to communicate frequently, could come under increased scrutiny by Democrats.

In another Tweet Wednesday morning, Trump issued a threat to Democrats, saying if they "think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we likewise will be forced to consider investigating them for all the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level".

Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., a Marine who recruited other veterans to run, said Democrats "need someone who can bring the party back together, someone who can be focused on the future and someone who is dedicated to supporting the next generation of leaders".

"The American people voted to give the House of Representatives a mandate to conduct credible, independent, robust, and responsible oversight of the Trump administration", said Representative Elijah Cummings of Maryland, who is likely to be the Oversight chairman.

"What I would do next would be to say, this is what this role is: It's the leading figure in the first branch of government, it has awesome power, and we get things done", she said, adding the speaker had to "show the power of the gavel". Many interpreted that as a tongue-in-cheek comment, but the president said that was not the case.

For example, Cummings and other Democratic lawmakers a year ago filed a federal lawsuit demanding disclosures of records to determine how Trump was approved by the General Services Administration to maintain the lease of the Trump International Hotel in Washington after he became president. She also tamped down liberal cries for Trump's impeachment. That would likely result in court battles.

The top Democrat on the judiciary committee, Jerry Nadler, told MSNBC's Ari Melber immediately after the election that "we'll use subpoena power if we have to, when we have to".

"You are a rude, bad person", Trump told Acosta. "The president's not nervous about anything".

Trump on Wednesday reiterated his assertion that the returns could not be released because of an Internal Revenue Service audit. "And in the last week, he certainly motivated some base Trump voters to come out enthusiastically themselves".

The European Union's stated objective for negotiating a trade deal with the US was also an important consideration, Neal added, as was the potential for a bilateral agreement with the United Kingdom after it leaves the European Union at the end of the process known as Brexit.

Trump denies any collusion and has long denounced Mueller's investigation as a witch hunt. Underwood, a progressive African American, took 52 percent of the vote in a district which is 86 percent white and widely seen as a Republican stronghold.
