On this episode of Up Close, showdowns in Washington, D.C. and New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy.

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- A showdown over a shutdown. Again.

That's 1 of the political messes now happening in Washington.

The other? The House Speaker attempting to launch an impeachment inquiry into President Biden.

We talk to New York Congressman Dan Goldman, former lead counsel for the House Judiciary Committee in former President Trump's first impeachment hearing.

Also, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, who last week picked a new lieutenant governor.

He talks about that, his battle against congestion pricing in Manhattan, and how he plans to deal with the current rise of COVID-19.
