What Happens If Dems Retake the House

What Happens If Dems Retake the House

The presidency of Donald Trump won't come to an end if Democrats win back the House in November, but the end of his domestic agenda certainly would be one of four eventualities, David Faris wrote in his analysis for The Week.

The other three consequences of a Democratic-controlled House, according to Faris:

  • Reopening of investigations into Russia and Trump's other scandals.
  • Trump maintains his ability to transform the federal courts, assuming Republicans hold onto the Senate.
  • The real possibility that Dems will obstruct Trump and the Senate at every turn.

But first — Democrats will reopen the Russia probe and myriad others into Trump, Faris writes.

"If Democrats take back the House, you can bet that the Russia investigation will be resurrected, most likely under the leadership of Rep. Adam Schiff. But they won't stop there," Faris writes.

"Since President Trump is unlikely to sign any legislation addressing Democratic priorities, that means that one of the main things you can expect outcome-wise from two years of Democratic House control is a long series of public inquisitions that might help uncover the truth about the president and his cronies," Faris writes.

A Democratic-controlled House would also mean the end of Trump's domestic legislative ambitions, which isn't that much different from the futility that we're seeing now, Faris writes, adding that Republicans are content with "running out the clock" until November.

"The loss of the party's policy agenda probably isn't that big of a deal for the GOP, since that agenda is virtually non-existent anyway," Faris writes. "Voters will hardly notice the policy difference between unified Republican control in D.C. and a government divided between Republicans and Democrats."
