    I don't think Trump's position in Congress is "fortified." He lost the House. Republicans did gain seats in the Senate, but that's a bit overdue, as we had never-Trumpers like McCain block Republican legislation a year ago. Oh well. On the bright side, we'll have even stronger support for the next Supreme Court appointee.

    Trump didn't "lose" either, at least in a meaningful way. The House usually swings two years into a presidency, so this is normal. Democrats have gotten more vile, angrier, and have amped up the fake news, e.g. their coverage of Acosta. This is the radical fringe of the party, and their strategy seems to be, "MORE." I don't know. This has been a failed strategy for them since after they lost the House in '10. We'll see if they can win moderates with their vile, Obama-era tactics. In my opinion they either need a conservative Democrat to lead the party in 2020, or they have to hope Trump doesn't campaign.
    Trump never had the House : the Freedom Caucus was only a minority and there were enough House RINOs to block all Trump's propositions .There were 73 Rinos in the Main Street Republican Partnership and at least 3 in the Senate (Collins, McCain, Graham ) and this is without the disguised Rinos as Murkowski and Flake. I would also not trust McConnell ( who has a net worth of $ 27 million ) to defend the Deplorables .2 years ago 5 GOP senators were supported by Soros :
    McCain,Rubio,Grassley, Johnson and Graham .

    So, please show where Dana Bash and Phil Mudd said the above. And Phil Mudd no longer works in the government so he cannot be a Mueller's 'deputy.'
    I have given the evidences several times; you decided to ignore them and to ask again for evidences . That does not work .
    Phill Mudd worked for the CIA and FBI , and the Company never lets someone go .

    The Republicans already controlled the Senate before the election. So, they didn't 'win' it but maintained control of it. And they didn't do much when they controlled both houses of Congress for the past two years. And if they become obstructionist as you apparently want them to, they very well might lose control of the Senate in two years.
    1 The GOP lost 30 seats in the House.Obama lost 64 in his first mid-term elections and Clinton lost 54 seats.
    2 The GOP won 3 seats in the Senate,while Obama lost 7 seats and Clinton 10
    3 The Anti-Trumpers in Congress were purged : Flake is only one of these that not returned ,
    Conclusion : Trumps position in Congress is fortified .

    I wonder what the troops who were sent to Texas are doing and thinking...?
    They think that Massena is posting nonsense .

    There's a reason that they went to Tijuana. The organizers have an office there, and they have a pack of illegal immigrant friendly lawyers who will go into Mexico and coach these people on what to tell ICE officials to get an asylum hearing. If ICE grants them a hearing they get released into the US, and this case into California. They're in, they can forget further hearings and California won't lift a finger to try and help arrest and deport them.

    That's been much of Pueblo sin Frontera's playbook for the last ten years. The illegals don't have to try and risk a fence hop when they can get past an initial asylum request screening like 90% of the time by saying what the lawyers and advocates coached them to say. Once in the US, they can go about being here illegally just like any other illegal.
