Bipartisan congress?
Are we seeing the first inkling of reason leading to bipartisanship?

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/22/us/po...ussia.html

Quote: Congressional leaders have reached an agreement on sweeping sanctions legislation to punish Russia for its election meddling and aggression toward its neighbors, they said Saturday, defying the White House’s argument that President Trump needs flexibility to adjust the sanctions to fit his diplomatic initiatives with Moscow.

Quote:The new legislation sharply limits the president’s ability to suspend or terminate the sanctions — a remarkable handcuffing by a Republican-led Congress six months into Mr. Trump’s tenure. It is also the latest Russia-tinged turn for a presidency consumed by investigations into the Trump campaign’s interactions with Russian officials last year.

Quote:Mr. Trump could soon face a decision: veto the bill — a move that would fuel accusations that he is doing the bidding of President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia — or sign legislation imposing sanctions his administration abhors.

Quote:“A nearly united Congress is poised to send President Putin a clear message on behalf of the American people and our allies, and we need President Trump to help us deliver that message,” said Senator Ben Cardin of Maryland, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Bipartisan politics -

When the two major parties put aside their differences to make a serious effort, to screw the American public.........

A reason to think if something was serious enough to be found, an impeachment and removal of Trump isn't out of the gops mindset... besides they probably will feel more can be done with Pence or Ryan at president, why wouldn't they want that ultimately.

If both parties are on board, I'm inclined to think it's because pollsters are telling them voters care. The Republicans know this can make them vulnerable in the midterms. This is likely just to take that away.

RE: Bipartisan congress?
Was having a look at what the US Congress is all about, and I thought for a non-American, this site set things out pretty clearly and in plain English...

Legislative Branch (Congress)

I can see the Republicans losing out majorly in the House midterms next year, as it's usually seen as a vote on how well the POTUS is doing. In Trump's case it'll be close to zero LOL. As an Aussie, I'd be hoping the Democrats will regain power in Congress.

Oops. Don't believe everything you read online. I'm leaving this here anyway though.

It's not fair to insult baboons like that.
