Even though Congress is technically on recess, it has been a busy week in the nation’s capital.
The week started with a letter from White House Counsel Patrick Cipollone to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, informing the House leader that the White House was not going to participate in an impeachment inquiry that it considered unconstitutional. Resistance to the impeachment inquiry escalated when the White House refused to let the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, testify to Congress.
Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, joined Politics with Amy Walter to discuss the latest on the impeachment inquiry and how the House will continue their investigation without a cooperating White House.
Also, Eugene Kiely and Erika Franklin Fowler discuss the implications of political digital advertising for 2020. Congresswoman Katherine Clark weighs in about the House Democratic Caucus and efforts to prioritize the issue of gun violence. Finally, Peter Beinart shares why the presidency might skip generation X.
