Steyer, who recently launched an ad campaign targeting Neal, asked 1st Congressional District residents who gathered at Chez Josef in Agawam to join him in pressing the Springfield Democrat to use his power as the House Ways and Means Committee chairman to formally seek Trump's tax information.

If Trump's border emergency stands, he could divert $3.6 billion from military construction projects to build border barriers, even though Congress had voted to limit him to less than $1.4 billion for such construction.

The resolutions are both privileged, which means they can not be stopped by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky.

But there have been signs that opposition by a few GOP mavericks is softening. Mike Lee (R-Utah) that tries to claw back some emergency powers to Congress and whether the White House endorses some version of it.

His Wednesday schedule, released to the press, shows he is set to receive a series of policy briefings followed by a meeting with Republican senators and a photo with the new White House interns. "All that's left to do is to vote".

Republicans control the Senate 53-47, meaning that four GOP defections would be enough to send the resolution blocking Trump's border emergency to the White House.

Thursday's vote could mark the second time this week that members of Trump's party have rebuked him on Capitol Hill. "It's not a vote on precedent, because if you take a look at what President Obama did with DACA and so many other things, that was no precedent".

The White House is privately negotiating with Senate Republicans who want to rein in the emergency powers of President Trump and his successors - which could lead to the surprise defeat of a Democratic resolution rejecting Trump's emergency declaration at the border.

What we are witnessing here is the early stages of a public relations battle to convince a solid majority of Americans that Trump ought to be impeached, assuming the investigations yield real evidence in support of impeachment.

The votes on the Yemen resolution and the emergency declaration represent some of the strongest backlash the President has weathered from his own party yet.

"Republican Senators are proposing new legislation to allow the President to violate the Constitution just this once in order to give themselves cover", she said.

"Congressman Green intends to bring articles of impeachment to the House floor for a third time - the first with Democrats in the majority".

In the pre-dawn darkness of 5:50 a.m., the president, 72, returned to a cherished topic: himself and what he sees as his history-making success in the Oval Office. Maybe Republicans did notice the 2018 election.

She said he had a "robust discussion" about the emergency declaration with Pence on Tuesday, and will decide how to vote on the resolution to overturn it before Thursday's vote.

The vote on the Yemen resolution was not overwhelmingly Republican, with just seven defections.

The "Assuring that Robust, Thorough, and Informed Congressional Leadership is Exercised Over National Emergencies Act" would have ended any president's declarations of national emergency after thirty days unless Congress voted to extend them.

The senators who met Tuesday with Pence were Tillis, Alexander, Lee, Rob Portman of OH and Patrick Toomey of Pennsylvania.
