Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, Washington Times columnist and political analyst Matt Mackowiak joined the show to discuss all the latest in political news and opinion in the nation and Texas.

Mackowiak and Hasty explored the aftermath of the mid-term elections, and what it all means in the national arena, including the hotly contested House speaker's race, as well as in the great state of Texas, and the expected leadership taking over there.

While talking about what definite actions the public can expect from from the newly gained leadership role by the Democratic Party in the U.S House of Representatives, Mackowiak said,

I do expect that they will bring up articles of impeachment. I don't know when, I don't know on what, and my guess is it will be six to nine months from now after some of these investigations have been concluded up on Capitol Hill...I think it's going to be pretty dysfunctional, pretty partisan, very divided, pretty ugly over the next two years.

On the state front, and the competition for the new Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives, and the replacement Joe Straus, Mackowiak said,

It really looks like [Dennis] Bonnen has unified a lot of these factions, in really quite an impressive way, and he did it pretty quickly.
