The Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee takes up the impeachment of Donald Trump again on Monday morning, with lawmakers expected to hear evidence against the president that could lead to a Senate trial for high crimes and misdemeanors.
Monday’s hearing will include opening arguments “made by Barry H. Berke for the committee Democrats and Stephen R. Castor for the Republicans. Daniel S. Goldman, the Democratic counsel for the House Intelligence Committee, will then present the evidence for impeachment, and Mr. Castor will present the evidence against it. Judiciary Committee members will then ask questions,” reports the New York Times.

As election season starts in earnest, all eyes turn to Iowa
The rush is on for Democratic presidential candidates in Iowa, with a brief break in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump in Washington and the first vote in the party's nominating process a little more than a week away.
Iowans' first-in-the-country vote -- set for February 3 this year -- often plays an outsized role in shaping the presidential field. But in a year of extraordinary flux among Democratic front-runners, predictions are less sure.
A New York Times poll Saturday did show progressive Senator Bernie Sanders pulling into a timely lead in Iowa, with a sizable, seven-point lead over three candidates who sit in a statistical tie: former South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg, former US Vice President Joe Biden and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.
