House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is suggesting that the possibility of impeachment might help Democrats win more White House co-operation in congressional investigations into whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.

He says he's not seen any mutually agreeable suggestions for financing the work "that would come anywhere close to $2 trillion", which he called "a lofty goal".

Pelosi's team of transportation authorizers in the chamber and top Senate Democrats plan to meet with Trump in about three weeks to hear from the president on a funding blueprint for the legislation.

Mulvaney is now speaking at a seminar in California on the Identical evening that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democrats meet with Trump in the White House.

Democrats and Republicans are quick to talk up a bipartisan infrastructure deal. Lawmakers are concentrated on exploring problems raised in counsel Robert Mueller's report. The nation's top business groups and labor unions support raising the federal taxation, now 18.3 cents a gallon as it was last raised in 1993.

Wondering if Trump supports raising the gas tax, White House advisor Kellyanne Conway said:"This president will be the guy who lowers taxes".

The infrastructure legislation also would need to address climate change, she said.

This is the first sit-down between Trump and Democrats since the 35-day government shutdown last winter.

Schumer and pelosi delivered Trump a letter ahead of the meeting outlining their priorities.
