Skimm This: Trump vs. Congress, Fighting Fires, Lithium Batteries

Together with John Hancock

It’s October 9th. Today, we Skimm’d This:

  • Dems in Congress are telling the White House: we need your help with this impeachment inquiry. The White House says: nice try. We'll consult the Constitution to see what it says should happen here (hint: it doesn't say much).

  • Then, people in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia are all hitting the streets in anti-government protests -- for very different reasons.

  • Finally: why hundreds of thousands of Californians are sitting in the dark for a few days.


theSkimm:
The White House’s refusal to cooperate with an impeachment inquiry in the House of Representatives is setting the stage for a constitutional crisis. We’ll look at what a constitutional crisis actually means, and how Congress could respond here. Meanwhile, protests are going down in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. We’ll take you on a whirlwind tour of the latest demonstrations. Also on today’s show: hundreds of thousands of Californians are finding themselves in the dark.
