(CBS Newspath) – It’s Wednesday, January 15th. Here are the stories we’re keeping our eye on:
Six Democratic presidential candidates hit the debate stage
At the Democratic presidential debate last night, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) were ready to move on from reports that Sen. Sanders told his Senate colleague a woman couldn’t win the presidency. Sen. Sanders denies the claim. “Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 3 million votes. How could anybody in a million years not believe that a woman could become president of the United States?” he said.
But the camera captured a tense moment after the debate, with Sen. Warren seemingly rejecting a handshake from Sen. Sanders.
As the first debate since the military escalation with Iran, foreign policy took a larger role this time around.
This is the last debate before Iowans hold their first-in-the-nation caucus next month on February 3rd.
Impeachment is heading to the Senate
Nearly a month after the House voted to impeach President Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is officially releasing the articles of impeachment and sending them to the Senate.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said the impeachment process has been handled “irresponsibly” across the Capitol. “But unfortunately, no matter how irresponsibly this has been handled across the Capitol, impeachment is not a political game, and the United States Senate will not treat it like one,” he said.
