"I do think they will definitely try to impeach nearly immediately", said Meadows, even though Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders have downplayed that issue during the campaign.
Like the old joke about talented but turnover-prone quarterbacks, Trump keeps both teams in the game. She has earned this great honor!,' he tweeted.
Yet ascent of the California Democrat is nowhere near guaranteed.
Democrats did well on a national level with the House, much like how Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but ultimately lost the presidency, while Republicans still won in states that are important to the Electoral College. They are reluctant to shout the name "Pelosi" when the cameras zoom in during the first roll call of Congress, fearful of the attack ads that will be launched against them.
As for the House, incoming Speaker Nancy Pelosi will have a hard task managing an unruly Democratic caucus with little margin for error.
Although they have not determined precisely which investigations to launch next year, Democrats are expected to scrutinise Trump administration policies on immigration, education and health care, and to examine his personal finances and potential connections to Russian Federation.
The two have reasons to cooperate.

It is from this perspective that the results look like something less than the "tremendous success" Trump boasted about on Twitter.
But, in another tweet on Wednesday, he told those candidates who avoided him to "say goodbye!" Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, whose parties lost the House in the middle of their first terms, used the defeats to recalibrate for successful re-election campaigns. Something is going on because President Donald Trump, 72, did something really unpredictable on the morning after the 2018 midterm elections: he complemented Nancy Pelosi, 78.
