NEW: Trump will be out of power in January, but the congressional investigations into his finances and his alleged obstruction are poised to continue as House Dems hope to rack up hard-fought wins in court.

w/ @AndrewDesiderio…
House legal efforts to access Trump’s financial records and to force ex-WH counsel Don McGahn to testify are both scheduled to linger into next year.

Pelosi and Biden will hold enormous sway over what happens to the litigation in those cases.…
Does Biden try to turn the page on the Trump era? Will he drop objections to House subpoenas? Does he try to fight them on narrower grounds to protect Executive Branch?

How badly does Pelosi want wins for Congress’ oversight power?…
Meanwhile, the Senate GOP seems intent on continuing its own sensitive investigations into the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe and into Hunter Biden’s foreign dealings.

But the two Georgia runoffs could doom them.…
“The chairman still has every intention of interviewing Don McGahn and other administration officials who have ignored our subpoenas,” said a House Judiciary aide, calling it as essential for rebuilding institutions Trump “degraded” during his presidency.…

GRAHAM keeps omitting that the document sent from the CIA to FBI about Clinton concocting collusion narrative was a *Russian* allegation, not verified by U.S.

Also, Clinton was publicly accusing Trump of links to Russiaa after Trump's "Russia, if you're listening" presser.
MCCABE says that after Trump fired Comey and told the Russians it relieved pressure on him, "we had many reasons at that point to believe that the president himself might pose a danger to national security."

JUST IN: Postal Service files a new explanation in court explaining its failure to comply with Judge SULLIVAN's order but says it complied in spirit anyway.
SULLIVAN is *furious.* He says “11th hour” decision not to comply is a problem.

“Someone may have to pay a price for that,” he says.
SULLIVAN emphasizes he doesn’t hold the DOJ attorney responsible. “It’s your clients, each and every one of them, starting at the top of the food chain.”

Trump begins his campaign to delegitimize potential late Biden gains while votes are being counted.
He deleted and reposted it to fix a poles/polls typo
Trump is doing what many feared: declaring that he won states that are, in reality, still too close to call while suggesting the counting should end becaus early counts reflect leads.
