The government is facing another shutdown deadline. Here's what it means for impeachment.


Recommended Posts

I had a thread about the budget back in the spring when it was due.    No one has commented on it so here is a current one.   For all the libs article from CNN.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The government is facing another shutdown deadline. Here's what it means for impeachment.

From CNN's Phil Mattingly

 

Congress has until December 20 to pass a spending resolution and avert a government shutdown.

 

There is cautious optimism, but still work to be done. There has been progress made, but the largest outstanding issues still stand. Everyone involved wants an agreement, but those same lawmakers and administration officials are still haggling over issues large and small. In other words, Congress Is once again running right up to the brink of a government shutdown.

 

This comes as the House is also proceeding with articles of impeachment against President Trump.

 

Remember: Once the House votes to impeach the President, it will essentially shut the Senate down until the trial is complete.

 

In other words, that vote likely needs to come after any spending vote for the Senate to have a chance to vote to keep the government open. That complicates things. Again, this is a traffic jam right now.

I suspect they will pass some kind of a spending resolution...if they don't it will hurt the dems the most.

 

They have been chasing hoaxes rather than doing their job.

The OP is a little misleading.  Once the House officially notifies the Senate is has passed an article of impeachment against someone, the Senate is basically shut down until the trial is complete.  The House could pass articles of impeachment, not officially notify the Senate, and then both could pass a measure to keep the government functioning.

There is no traffic jam as your tutors claim. All BS rhetoric about a government shutdown is BS rhetoric.

 

Donald Trump allegedly committed impeachable crimes by subverting the interests of the United States to solicit foreign interference in the 2020 elections. We can’t let him get away with it.  The House is introducing two Articles of Impeachment.
