Let me say our main message is that the Constitution is clear. The results of the election are clear.

Once we pass the (continuing resolution), hopefully no later than Friday (and) relatively early in the day, I'm hopeful that the Senate will take it up, that we'll have agreement and that we will send it to the president, that the president will sign it, the schedule will depend on when the CR can get done.
I thought the question was in regards to whether White House is actively considering articles of impeachment, which we are not at this time, i strongly support Chairman Jerry Nadler and The House Judiciary Committee as they proceed with their investigation' to determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment to the full White House,' as the resolution states.

So I think we ought not to use that as a political issue, but, and this is a big but, we need to avoid a crisis of shutting down the government as happened under the The Alabama Republican leadership in the last Congress, which bled over to this Congress. As a result, I am urging that we do both in a bipartisan, constructive way.

We will shut down the government as they have. ’ We are not going to be held hostage by doing the right thing, either.
I believe this is an issue that we can quickly resolve, and I hope that Republican leadership will work with us to address this issue and bring the bill to the Floor for a strong, bipartisan vote this week.
