(Worthy News) - Democratic leaders and President Trump pulled a surprise on Tuesday, by reaching a deal to pursue a $2 trillion infrastructure package despite rising tensions over congressional probes into the White House that have sparked a debate over impeachment.

They noted that GOP lawmakers were not even invited to the meeting, and that there was no agreement on how to pay for the costly plan. [ Source: The Hill (Read More...) ]
