Democrats to probe Trump actions on AT&T, Amazon.com: Axios

Some protesters were being arrested Tuesday after refusing to leave a hallway outside Pelosi's office. "We can embrace the energy of activism to move our party's goals forward".

Seth Moulton of MA and Filemon Vela of Texas, contended that their private conversations revealed that Pelosi would soon learn that she lacked backing within the full House to be elected speaker next year - despite her confidence that she would lock down the necessary support.

"I have spoken with @NancyPelosi about how our commitments to climate change should take shape in the 116th Congress", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

When Democrats take control of the U.S. House they plan to investigate the Trump administration's decision to try to block AT&T Inc from acquiring Time Warner, and whether officials sought to punish Amazon.com Inc by prodding the U.S. Post Office to hike shipping prices for the world's largest e-commerce company, a senior Democrat said on Sunday. "Reinstating the Select Committee is exactly what we need to do".

"Leader Pelosi is very confident in her support among members and members-elect", said Drew Hammill, her spokesman.

Supporters of Pelosi are deeply skeptical about her critics' predictions, expecting she will get enough votes to become speaker and will overcome the opposition from the small minority of rabble-rousing Democrats. But the longtime Democratic leader is working aggressively behind the scenes to rally members behind her bid, with the first test of her support likely to come Wednesday, when Democrats will debate a change to party rules.

The self-described Democratic socialist, who'll be entering Congress next year, joined environmental activists from the Sunrise Movement to demand legislation to achieve 100 percent renewable energy and a special committee in Congress to address climate change.

"She was a movement candidate and she'll be a movement representative", Trent told The Post. As the demonstrators greeted her with wild applause and cheers, she told them that their protest was "not just about confrontation" but also about "real, meaningful unity".

"I just want to let you all know how proud I am of each and every single one of you for putting your selves and your bodies and everything on the line to make sure that we save our planet, our generation, and our future", she said.
