Uggh this is confusing.

And they need 2/3 of the house votes to do that so Trump can't veto their veto? Seems unlikely, as the article said, meaning he gets his way again I guess. :roll:

What a broken system!

It's an executive branch check to legislative power.

As it is, if he goes ahead, it will be taken up by the judicial branch who will judge if it's constitutional. Which it very likely won't be given that Trump publicly acknowledged that it wasn't an actual emergency.

I think I like you.

So congress passes the law - in this case, that law is basically "wall bad"
and then trump is going to veto that law - allowing the wall to go forward under his emergency declaration.
Congress could override his veto - veto his veto - but they need more votes than they can get

but I don't think it's going to be long before we get to that point.

You heard it here first, trump will not be president on Jan 1, 2020.

Things are going to start moving fast.

It's only confusing if we are imprecise with language. The only veto taking place is Trump's on the bill. Nothing else is a "veto" because that has a very specific meaning.

The vote is to prevent Trump from using his national emergency powers to funnel money to the wall. They aren't vetoing what he did because only the president vetoes things. They can override a veto, but we only get to confusing territory if we decide to get clever and start calling everything a veto.

My favorite part of the week was when Pelosi sent out the signal "I'm not for impeachment...unless there is profound evidence of high crime"

to which MITCH MCCONNEGLE had to say, shoulders slumped and head down. "I agree."

I don't want President Pence. Can't we keep Trump for 1 more year? Pence is smart. Trump isn't

Two things

One, it’s a non-binding resolution. Basically saying hey AG Barr, we prefer you publicly release it. It is not legally binding.

Two, senate republicans have already begun blocking it.

I'm not 100% sure this is legal, nor that you're good for it, so forgive me, but I'll pass

But you can quote my post at me on Jan 1 if I'm wrong and we can all grieve together

while sdny are fed prosecutors, there will be corresponding state prosecutors to worry about, if not political considerations.

ny has already moved to get rid of the double jeopardy protection - look at the state charges against manafort for how they're working to stop him from pardoning his way out
