President Trump — VETO!

Senate Republicans joined the Democrats in rebuking President Trump’s declaration for a national emergency for what’s happening at the southern border.

President Trump said that he would veto the resolution if it hit his desk and he’s almost at that point. After the presidential veto, it goes back to the House and Senate floor where BOTH houses will have to vote a mandatory two-thirds vote to override the veto. Good luck with that!

Republicans now find themselves in a huge bind. Those that voted for the resolution, if they don’t back a veto override if it got to that point, makes them look so bad.

I am not torn with this. I wanted the national emergency declaration, but I didn’t want President Trump moving funds without the authority of the House. That’s not how it’s done. He’s done everything he can to protect the American people, and I see that, and I also understand that.

Rep. Mo Brooks still had the best solution for the wall without the moving of authorized funds, and that is what the Democrats are not happy about. I wish President Trump would have used that.

In a stunning rebuke, the Republican-controlled Senate has voted to terminate President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Senate voted 59-41 for a resolution to halt Trump’s emergency order. Trump has promised to veto it, and it is unlikely that Congress will have the votes to override him.

Yet the vote represents a remarkable break between Trump and Senate Republicans. It’s the first time Congress has used its power to reject a presidential emergency order.

Trump wants to use his declaration to steer $3.6 billion more to border barriers than lawmakers approved. He had warned Republicans to stick with him on the vote. He said doing otherwise would be siding with Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But several Republicans defied that warning. [excerpt via Associated Press]

Meanwhile, the House voted unanimously Thursday for a resolution calling for any final report in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation to be made public, a symbolic action designed to pressure Attorney General William Barr into releasing as much information as possible when the probe is concluded.
