DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Resigns: US Politics in 60 Seconds
What will Attorney General William Barr reveal about the Mueller Report when he testifies on the Hill?
I don't think very much he'll defend his summary and say that more will be revealed once the redaction period is over and you can put out the full report. So he'll probably evade a lot of tough questions.
Will DHS go in a tougher direction now that Secretary Nielsen is gone?
Trump certainly hope so. More zero-tolerance policy at the border, fewer asylum refugees let in, and he certainly wants to go much tougher with Secretary Neilsen gone.
Can Dems stop the logjam on emergency aid on Capitol Hill?
Well they'll try with a bill that adds money for disaster relief in the Midwest. But the issue of Puerto Rico disaster funding is still going to be a problem in the Senate. So I'm not sure the logjam is over.
Can the New York State legislature force the release of President Trump's tax returns?
Well they're certainly going to try with a new bill to do that. Democrats control the state so you'd think that they could but there's still a lot of questions about whether this would be a bad precedent to force the release of a single person's tax return. So the effort will be there. I'm not sure it'll be successful.
