With Democrats retaking the House and Rep. Nancy Pelosi expected to reclaim the speaker’s gavel and launch a two-year inquisition against President Donald Trump, he let it be known Wednesday morning that “two can play that game.”
In response to the very real possibility that Pelosi will soon be dropping subpoenas on the White House, the president made it clear that Democrats aren’t immune from being investigated.
“If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level. Two can play that game!” he tweeted.

Right on cue, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota stated during an interview Wednesday morning with Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway that there’s “an appetite” for the president’s tax releases.
“Is this really what you’re talking today after we had historic gains in the Senate?” an exasperated Conway asked.
Pointing out how “ham-handed” Democrats are, she spoke of the Democratic Party’s efforts to investigate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“The last time the Democrats did, let’s just say an actual investigation, it was during the Kavanaugh hearings,” Conway said, “and the four Democratic senators who voted against Kavanaugh all lost last night.”
She dismissed the notion that there may be “anxiety” in the White House over what Camerota described as “oversight” from a Democrat-run House.
The CNN anchor remained fixated on Trump’s tax returns, citing a poll that said a majority of Americans think he should release them — all of which betrays what will surely be a line of attack against the president by a Democrat-run House.
