Incoming House Appropriations Chair Nita Lowey of NY, a close ally of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, said "yes" to each of a long list of possible investigative targets, including the Space Force, hurricane relief in Puerto Rico, White House security clearances, White House use of personal email and more...

According to Axios, the Dems now have at least 85 avenues of investigation that they can take regarding the president and his dealings. Fox News has learned 51 protesters were arrested Tuesday after refusing to leave a hallway outside Pelosi's office. They sat on the hallway floor and sang in unison.

Fresh from her victory last week, the New York City Democrat, who shot to fame after her shocking upset of ten-term incumbent representative Joe Crowley in a June primary, joined the sit-in for a few minutes, offering her support and giving high fives to the activists in attendance.

Ms. Pelosi said that she would urge her caucus to revive a select committee focused on climate change, similar to the one that Democrats financed from 2007 to early 2011, to "prepare the way with evidence" for energy conservation and other climate change mitigation legislation.

Protesters from Justice Democrats and the environmental group Sunrise comprised the protest, which called on Pelosi to take immediate action on climate change when she likely takes the gavel. "House Democrats ran on and won on our bold campaign for a $1 trillion investment in our infrastructure that will make our communities more resilient to the climate crisis, while creating 16 million new good-paying jobs across the country".
