Pelosi rejects Republican bill to change national emergencies law
Trump appreciates Pelosi's 'statement against impeachment'

"Republican Senators are proposing new legislation to allow the President to violate the Constitution just this once in order to give themselves cover".
Pelosi's warning comes ahead of a planned Senate vote on Thursday on a resolution passed by the House that would nullify Trump's declaration of a national emergency at the U.S. -Mexico border.
Chances seem to be improving that President Donald Trump might avoid an expected rejection by Congress of his effort to divert more money to building barriers along the Mexican border.
In an attempt to stave off Senate passage - an embarrassing prospect for Trump - Republican senators have been pushing an alternative measure that would instead address concerns that Trump's powers under the National Emergencies Act are too broad.
"The House will not take up this legislation to give President Trump a pass", the Democratic leader said in a statement.
Vice President Mike Pence has met privately at the Capitol with five GOP senators as Republicans sought a way to bolster support for Trump in a showdown vote set for Thursday.
Pelosi's move seemed aimed at persuading GOP senators wavering over the resolution disapproving Trump's border emergency that they would get no political protection by supporting the bill curbing future emergencies because it will never become law.
Republicans are not prepared to deal with a number of Trump-related investigations, one former campaign adviser to the current president is saying.
It has long looked like the Republican-run Senate would join the Democratic-led House in voting to block Trump's border emergency. Ryan gave the space to Pence as a symbolic gesture of how awful their union would be for the country as they worked to gut the Affordable Care Act and give tax revenues to the rich. Pence didn't use the office much. The vice president also has a standing office on the Senate side, which he uses when he visits Congress.
The White House wants to extend the 30-day period, perhaps to 30 days when Congress is in session, said one GOP aide familiar with the discussion who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe closed-door talks. Congress can vote to block an emergency declaration, but the two-thirds majorities required to overcome presidential vetoes make it hard for lawmakers to prevail. That vote could well occur after Congress returns from a recess later this month.
The White House says that Trump is within his rights to declare the national emergency and that opposing him will be seen as a vote against border security - which could play poorly in their home states.
