The Senate narrowly passed a budget resolution earlier this week, with a last-minute amendment adopting technical and procedural language from the House budget passed earlier in October that may expedite the budget's final passage.

A House GOP source told The Hill earlier this week that the language may allow the House to directly pass the Senate bill without heading to conference committee.

Those comments are expected to be rebuked by Gold Star father Khizr Khan, who will appear on CBS. Earlier this week, Khan attacked President Trump over his treatment of families of fallen service members.

“He does not have the capacity to understand what it takes to serve this nation in harm's way,” Khan said.
