President Trump Refuses To Cooperate As Impeachment Inquiry Proceeds
The White House legal counsel sent an eight-page letter to House Democratic leaders Tuesday, denouncing the investigation into President Donald Trump as politically motivated and “unconstitutional.” The formal inquiry stems from a whistleblower report about Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president in July, but it has gained steam as more details have emerged, allegedly implicating his attorney Rudy Giuliani, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Energy Secretary Rick Perry. Meanwhile, Republicans in Congress continue to stick by Trump’s side, with none of the majority members of the GOP-led Senate on record supporting the impeachment inquiry.

'Project Puffin' Examines One Success Story In Bringing A Species Back From The Brink
Rising temperatures and more extreme weather are putting large swaths of the Earth's population at risk, with the latest U.N. Climate Report declaring that more than 1 million species of plants and animals will face extinction if action is not taken soon. But in New England, there's at least one species that's providing a ray of hope: the Atlantic puffin. A century ago, they were almost wiped out of their habitats along the Maine coast, but today they are thriving in the area.

Jim Braude was joined by Derrick Jackson, an environmental writing fellow at the Union of Concerned Scientists who has been following the story for decades, and co-wrote a book on them in 2016 called "Project Puffin: The Improbable Quest to Bring a Beloved Seabird Back to Egg Rock."
