Republicans Strap On for Biden Impeachment

In This Episode

With just two weeks left to avoid a government shutdown, Kevin McCarthy opens an impeachment inquiry against President Biden, even though Republicans have provided zero evidence that Biden did anything wrong. Trump outlines his radical vision for a potential second term as the President unloads on “Maganomics.” Then, Representative Jamie Raskin joins to break down the House Democrats’ counterattack plan on impeachment. And: strap-ons in the Senate! How a hearing on book bans turned X-rated.
