Dems to flex muscle with new House majority: Subpoenas, investigations, even possible impeachment talks loom

From the GOP’s gains in the Senate to Nancy Pelosi’s vindication, here’s a look at some of the newsworthy wins of the 2018 midterm election.

The incoming Democratic majority in the House of Representatives has the power to open a slew of investigations into the White House and President Trump when the new Congress is seated in January, and early indications are that Democrats plan to aggressively take advantage of their new authority.

Bogging down the Trump administration with burdensome document requests and subpoenas could backfire, political analysts tell Fox News, but there is little doubt that the strategy -- made more viable by heightened partisanship and loosened congressional norms -- would impair Republicans' messaging and even policy goals for the next two years.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who aims to reclaim the position of House speaker when her colleagues vote in the coming weeks, recently seemed to threaten to use congressional subpoenas as a cudgel against the White House.
