House Democrats File Articles Of Impeachment Against President Trump
House Democrats filed articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday, making him just the fourth U.S. president to be so charged.

To discuss, Jim Braude was joined by Stephen Kinzer, a former foreign correspondent for The New York Times, now a senior fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University, and Neta Crawford, director of the Watson Institute’s Cost Of War Project, and chair of the political science department at Boston University.
