Normally the lame duck season happens between Nov and Jan. It is his constitutional duty as. Is the senate to provide s hearing. There is no precedent to this . Since when is the senate the boss over the president. He vetoed their legislation. I think the Republican senators that have elections this year should have to give up their votes for the remainder of the year. Bye Bye McConnell. New Democratic leader of the senate. New Democratic majority. Oh well.
