Some House Republicans are pushing a resolution to impeach David Chipman, President Biden's nominee to run the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) – even before he's been confirmed by the Senate.
Former President Donald Trump has been out of office for nearly three weeks, but he is still expected to command the full attention of the legislative branch and the country in the coming days as the Senate begins his second impeachment trial, barely one year after his first.
Sen. Chris Murphy on Sunday said that he believes the Senate has a responsibility to hold an impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, adding that it is an open question whether or not such a trial is constitutional.
The hearings for the second impeachment trial of former President Trump start on Tuesday and Republicans are making it clear, even before they're gaveled in, that they believe the result is predetermined.
President Trump has reportedly fired Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the U.S. intelligence community who alerted Congress to concerns about a Trump phone call with the president of Ukraine – a matter that led to the president’s impeachment last year.
