The House of Representatives charged President Donald Trump with high crimes and misdemeanors, largely along party lines, with not a single Republican voting for impeachment.

Adam Reilly, in for Jim Braude, was joined by Erin O’Brien, a political science professor at the University of Massachusetts Boston and Tom Whalen, an associate professor of social science and American history at Boston University.

Hurwitz joined Adam Reilly, in for Jim Braude, to discuss her new book, “Here All Along: Finding Meaning, Spirituality, and a Deeper Connection to Life — in Judaism (After Finally Choosing to Look There).”

But others argue it changes the nature of a unique exchange program that’s as much about building cross-cultural relationships as it is about childcare. Cristina Quinn explains.
