House Democrats are moving closer to initiating impeachment proceedings against President Trump after he confirmed that he discussed 2020 presidential candidate and political rival Joe Biden, with the Ukrainian president.
The possibility that the president may have subjugated the national interest for personal political gain is a "new chapter of lawlessness," according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Is this the tipping point for impeachment? What are the implications of seeking to impeach -- or not?
Also this hour: Have you ever noticed that President Trump has a habit of quietly stating his alleged offenses out loud?
Plus, we'll talk about Beulah, a 54-year-old Asian elephant that belonged to Connecticut-based R.W. Commerford & Sons Zoo. The elephant died at the Big E last week, sparking outrage from animal rights activists who have been trying to have elephants removed from traveling zoos for years.
