The woman targeted in 137 Republican ads - Speaker Pelosi - got a hero's welcome in her home district on Tuesday morning as the intensity of the impeachment inquiry against President Trump grows.
Many people are now suggesting that Democrats in Congress give Trump his border wall funding in order to get the government reopened.

The situation is similar to a terrorist hostage situation, and everyone knows that you simply do not negotiate with terrorists.
In just six days Democrats will control the U.S. House of Representatives, at which time they will probably make Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the House, arguably the second most powerful position in Washington.
Donald Trump is already losing his shutdown battle with Democrats. After his return from Iraq today he immediately began tweeting desperately, threatening to hold Democratic voters hostage until he gets funding for his border wall with Mexico. But two new polls show that his position is very unpopular.
