"Republican Senators are proposing new legislation to allow the President to violate the Constitution just this once in order to give themselves cover", Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement.
GOP senators are hoping that if Trump endorses that bill, more Republicans would oppose a separate resolution, set for a vote Thursday, that would block the border emergency he proclaimed last month.
Opposition by a few Republican senators to President Donald Trump's emergency declaration at the U.S. -Mexico border appears to be softening.
In an attempt to stave off Senate passage - an embarrassing prospect for Trump - Republican senators have been pushing an alternative measure that would instead address concerns that Trump's powers under the National Emergencies Act are too broad.
According to the report, a House Democratic aide confirmed the office assignment change to the media outlet, and said that "Room assignments are reviewed and changed at the beginning of every Congress".
But Lee's proposal could peel off support from at least one of four Republican senators who have said they back the House measure.
Bossie further explained that he had been in contact with Republicans in the House of Representatives, the body of Congress that Democrats control, about how to best react to their investigations.

In the pre-dawn darkness of 5:50 a.m., the president, 72, returned to a cherished topic: himself and what he sees as his history-making success in the Oval Office.
In a backgrounder on the new bill, Lee's office said that "most people would agree that Congress should grant the president some degree of emergency power".
If the Senate sends the resolution blocking Trump's border emergency to the White House, Congress would be highly unlikely to muster the two-thirds majorities needed to eventually override a veto.
Under a 1976 law, presidents have wide discretion in determining when a national emergency has occurred.
A vote on Lee's plan was expected after Congress returns from a recess later this month.
The White House says that Trump is within his rights to declare the national emergency and that opposing him will be seen as a vote against border security - which could play poorly in their home states.
