President-elect Joseph R. Biden seems to be A-okay with impeaching President Trump a second time.
In fact, Biden even said that he wants to find ways for the Senate to work on impeachment proceedings while confirming his appointments and working on his agenda.
That’s a big ask because the rules of impeachment require the Senate to put aside all other matters.
“Can you go a half day on dealing with impeachment and a half day getting my people nominated and confirmed in the Senate as well as moving on the [coronavirus] package? So that’s my hope and expectation.”
Biden said he wasn’t sure about the logistics, of how such a schedule would work, which seems a bit disingenuous given that he’s been either a sitting Senator or Vice President during the two out of the three impeachments that have occurred in U.S. history.
