Trump, Administration Facing New Investigations

华盛顿 — 民主党人将于明年一月夺回众议院的控制权,他们誓言将将对美国总统特朗普的商业帝国以及他在任头两年的政策进行调查。 Democratic lawmakers taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives in January are vowing to launch wide-ranging investigations of President Donald Trump's business empire and policies he has adopted during the first two years in office.

Republicans who have controlled both houses of Congress since the Republican Trump assumed power in early 2017 have largely given him a pass, declining to hold hearings that might reflect badly on him or the officials he has appointed.

But Congressman Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat once described by Trump as "one of the most egregious hacks in contemporary politics," said the election results show "the American people have demanded accountability from their government and sent a clear message of what they want from Congress."

Nadler said Trump "may not like it, but he and his administration will be held accountable to our laws and to the American people." 特朗普在白宫记者招待会上说,如果民主党人开始各种新的调查,“我们也会做一样的事情,而我们的政府就会陷于停滞。”
Trump told a White House news conference that if Democrats start numerous new investigations, "We're going to do the same thing, and government comes to a halt."

Two other key Democratic lawmakers, Elijah Cummings of Maryland, who will almost certainly head the House Oversight Committee, and Adam Schiff of the Intelligence Committee, have both called for new oversight of Trump and his administration, probes often blocked by majority Republicans in the past two years.

Democrats have called for investigations of Cabinet officials' alleged misuse of taxpayer funds, Trump's immigration policies that have separated hundreds of migrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexican border, the handling of last year's Hurricane Maria crisis in the island territory of Puerto Rico, and alleged conflicts of interest between Trump's businesses and his presidency.


Some Democrats have also called for starting impeachment hearings against Trump, but mostly appear willing to wait to see what information Mueller produces from his 18-month investigation.
