Washington is preparing for the possibility of Trump letting funding lapse in a bid to blame Democrats and halt his impeachment proceedings.
November 21st is the day that federal operations are set to expire, Washington is beginning to plan for Trump to shut down the government to sway public opinion against Democrats and their impeachment push.
NBC News was told by Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), “He used it for his almighty wall for the longest shutdown in history, so I don’t put anything past him when it comes to this.”
Hopefully it doesn’t come to that. Back in September, Trump signed a spending bill that avoided another government shutdown. It wasn’t in the news and nobody talked about it. That’s what helped us continue until the 21st. We shall see.
