House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's husband, a real estate developer and investment banker, stands to make millions of dollars in a previously undisclosed residential real estate project in California as a partner with the father of a woman Mrs. Pelosi helped become ambassador to Hungary, records show.
Just three years after a Democrat-led Congress imposed the federal minimum wage on two U.S. territories in the Pacific, lawmakers last month halted the program in its tracks, acknowledging the move had sapped thousands of jobs from American Samoa and the commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
Pushing toward big gains on Nov. 2, House Republicans promised to end a slew of Democratic policies and restore Americans' trust in government as the GOP rolled out a campaign manifesto designed to show they're listening to an angry public and are focused on creating jobs.
In disparaging the CIA and accusing the agency of lying last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has become a "wrecking ball" to the morale of officers risking their lives in the field, the top Republican on the House intelligence committee said Tuesday.
House Republicans are crying foul over the Democrats' probe into the U.S. attorneys' firings, calling it a "hoax" and a "shell game" that is aimed not at fact-finding but instead at influencing the 2008 elections.
Asked about Mr. Hoekstra's comments on Mrs. Pelosi's leadership, Pelosi spokesman Nadeam Elshami said Congress has accomplished much with Mrs. Pelosi at the helm this year.
"We look forward to a 113th Congress where Republicans will work with Democrats to find bipartisan solutions to address our national priorities," Mr. Elshami said.
