Somebody better alert the press!
I get that you agree with Noah Feldman's opinion, on this. Do you also agree with his opinion that Trump committed impeachable acts, and should be removed from office?

So that means a Bill passed by both House and Senate is a Law even though it still has to go to the POTUS and get signed?
Does he sign off bills now?
My reading of things is that the House and Senate must place the impeachment of the President at special priority above all other work. The President should not be receiving any bills to sign.
If he has any bills to sign, it would only be because he has a backlog, and that because he hasn't been dealing with the work in a timely manner.
