Biden Urges Senate To Refocus On ‘Important Business’ As Dems Push For Impeachment Trial


President-elect Joe Biden weighed in again on the subject of impeachment late Wednesday, this time pushing the Senate, which will flip to Democrats next week, to press ahead with legislative business and push a possible trial for President Donald Trump, who will have left office, to the backburner.

“I hope that the Senate leadership will find a way to deal with their Constitutional responsibilities on impeachment while also working on the other urgent business of this nation,” Biden said.

Biden reportedly remains concerned that Congress is so focused on impeaching and punishing Trump that he will lose the precious time he needs to pass his agenda. Presidents typically have just 100 days to introduce major pieces of legislation and just 18 months to press a full agenda, and if the Senate is fully focused on holding Trump’s impeachment trial — a commitment required by the Constitution — it will overshadow any attempt by the Biden Administration to effect change.
