Lead impeachment House manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that an unpublished draft manuscript by former national security adviser John Bolton, which was reported by The New York Times, blasts another hole in President Donald Trump’s defense. According to the report, the manuscript alleges Trump wanted to continue holding military aid to Ukraine until the country helped with investigations into Democrats.

WATCH: Trump impeachment trial is about ensuring that votes matter, Rep. Demings says







The impeachment trial of President Donald Trump is about more than any one president or one election, Rep. Val Demings, a House manager, said during her arguments on the Senate floor on Jan. 23. “This moment is about the American people. This moment is about ensuring that every voter, whether a maid or a janitor, whether a nurse, a teacher or a truck driver, whether a doctor or a mechanic, that their vote matters, and that American elections are decided by the American people,” Demings, D-Fla., said. House managers have been allowed 24 hours over the course of three days to present their case. The White House will then make its defense. The House of Representatives impeached the president in December on two articles–abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The trial will determine whether Trump is convicted of those charges and removed from office, or acquitted.

Bernie Sanders on Trump impeachment: "No President can be above the law"







Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill Thursday, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders admitted that while the start of the impeachment trial in the Senate isn’t a 「happy day for the country」 it was important to establish for future generations that 「no President is above the law.」

The chief justice of the United States was sworn in Thursday to preside over President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, then immediately swore in the entire Senate body in turn with an oath to ensure “impartial justice” as jurors for only the third such proceeding in American history.

The Senate opened the impeachment trial at the start of the election year as Trump seeks another term, a test not only of his presidency but also of the nation’s three branches of power and its system of checks and balances. Several senators are running for the Democratic Party’s nomination to challenge Trump in November.

We met Sen. Gardner at the airport to ask about Trump's Senate trial







We couldn’t get a direct answer from Sen. Cory Gardner’s (R-Colorado) office on whether he supports including witnesses in Pres. Donald Trump’s Senate trial. So, when Gardner happened to end up on the same DC-to-Denver flight as political reporter Marshall Zelinger this evening, fellow 9NEWS reporter Steve Staeger decided to meet their flight at DIA to ask Gardner in person. (Our pal Marshall was still in the plane.)

Warren Confronted Sanders After Debate About Calling Her a Liar







Elizabeth Warren accused Bernie Sanders of calling her a liar during a confrontation after the Democratic debate on Tuesday, breaching a longstanding nonaggression pact between the two progressive candidates.

Audio released Wednesday by CNN, which co-hosted the debate in Des Moines, Iowa, revealed that Sanders and Warren were continuing a dispute that began even before the debate after she said he had told her that a woman could not be elected president in 2020.

During the debate, he denied ever making the remark, while Warren reasserted that he had, in fact, done so.

Warren told Sanders: “I think you called me a liar on national TV.”

“What?” Sanders responded.

“I think you called me a liar on national TV,” Warren repeated.

“You know, let’s not do it right now. If you want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion,” Sanders said, to which Warren replied, “Anytime.”

“You called me a liar,” Sanders continued. “You told me — all right, let’s not do it now.”

The dispute marked the unraveling of what amounted to a tacit agreement between the two Democratic presidential candidates not to criticize each other. But their alliance, which centered on health care and other issues, had been fraying over the past week.

The tense interaction occurred as all the candidates were congratulating one another on the debate stage, and was broadcast live without sound. Warren could be seen walking toward Sanders, as he stretched out his hand to her. But instead of taking it, she clasped her hands together. They then appeared to have the brief conversation.

The disagreement over Sanders’ comments in a private meeting in 2018 followed a report last week that Sanders had been trying to undercut Warren’s campaign.

Politico reported that the Sanders campaign gave talking points to volunteers criticizing Warren as the candidate of “highly-educated, more affluent people,” suggesting she couldn’t bring new voters into the party. She fired back over the weekend that she was “disappointed” that he had instructed his campaign to “trash” her to voters.
