Cardenas facing sex abuse allegations as Pelosi calls for investigation

Former Iowa Congressman Leonard Boswell introduces U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at the Polk County Democrats Spring Dinner Fundraiser

"I do think that we should revisit tax legislation in a way we always have, in a bipartisan, transparent way".

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said on Sunday it is imperative Republicans maintain control of Congress in November, and is confident his party can achieve the goal of keeping Democrats from holding the majority of seats. The suit claims Cardenas gave her a peculiar-tasting cup of water while she 16 and they were playing golf.

She was asked specifically about a report from The Washington Post on a slew of Democratic candidates who have publicly vowed to oppose Pelosi should Democrats retake the majority and elect a new speaker.

"Just win, baby", Pelosi said. Kaufmann pointed to Pelosi's national approval ratings - an average of 29 percent favorable and 49 percent unfavorable, according to the Huffington Post's poll tracker - and described her as the latest California liberal to speak in Iowa, following Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti and preceding billionaire activist Tom Steyer.

"I can't even think of not winning", she said. She made no mention of the scandals swirling around the Trump administration, focusing instead on how Democrats would run on "better jobs and better wages".

"Impeachment to me is a divisive issue unless there's something so conclusive as we saw ... in Watergate", Pelosi said, citing former President Richard Nixon as a legitimate case for impeachment.

Pelosi called the 2017 tax cuts "crumbs" and called for all members of her caucus to vote against it. "It's about America. It's about the values of our founders", Pelosi said. You can talk about it in your district.

In Indiana's 2nd District, health-care executive Mel Hall has run nearly entirely on the issue of rising health-care costs - an issue Democrats expect to seize as insurers raise premiums, citing the Trump administration's moves as the major reason.
