But in the throes of impeachment, they’re in lockstep on the desire to close out the year by checking off items on their to-do lists.

As the uncertain politics of the effort to remove Trump from office collide with critical year-end legislative deadlines, Washington, for the first time in recent memory, appears intent on demonstrating its capacity to multitask.

Even Trump, no stranger to unpredictability and drama, could only marvel at the week of Washington whiplash, observing, “This has been a wild week."
