Waiting for the Mueller Report: US Politics in 60 Seconds

How are Americans feeling about President Trump's tax cut bill?

Well, not very good. Polls suggests that it remains really unpopular. People feel like the rich and corporations got most of that tax cut and they didn't get very much.

What's the Dems' biggest achievement in their first 100 days in the House?

I'd say it's oversight of the Trump administration, having the gavels, calling people like Bill Barr up to testify. That'll continue to be their number one role in the House since they don't control the Senate.

Will the Mueller report reveal more details of collusion?

I'd say it's much more likely to give us details about potential obstruction rather than collusion, but I'm not sure there will be huge blockbusters in there.

Is President Trump moving to consolidate power?

Obviously he is. He's cleared out DHS, he's got acting directors or leaders in six agencies not Senate confirmed. He's absolutely moving to consolidate power in himself and the executive branch.

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.
