Marshall: End of impeachment in House means more time to work on policy
The impeachment battle in the case of President Donald Trump now shifts from the US House to the Senate -- and if Kansas Congressman Roger Marshall and other Republicans had their way, things would have never gotten this far.
Democrats say the Trump administration was asked to investigate Hunter Biden, a one0time representative for a Ukranian gas company and the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, or else $400 million in military aid would be withheld. Marshall says that's not the case.
Trial in the Senate is next, possibly next month. At least 21 Republicans would have to join Democrats for Trump to be convicted.
Marshall says he's pleased the United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, also known as USMCA, is being finalized soon despite the impeachment proceedings the last several months.
Marshall says the end of impeachment in the House means he and other lawmakers in the lower chamber can work on other matters like healthcare and workforce development. He says he's working on a bipartisan legislation to cut prescription costs and the overall cost of healthcare.
