Are impeachment proceedings imminent for President Trump?

Number one: Are impeachment proceedings imminent for President Trump?

Well there certainly a lot closer than they have been following all of the Ukraine revelations. We should know a lot by the end of this week. If moderate Democrats, who won in 2018, come out as a block for impeachment, it's going to put a lot of pressure on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to move forward. So we're certainly getting very close.

Number two: Will the transcript of the call between Trump and the Ukrainian president be released?

I doubt it. Trump likes to tease about releasing these things and never does. So it may be leaked but I don't think it'll be officially released.

Number three: With Bill de Blasio gone, who's next out among the Democratic presidential candidates?

It looks like Cory Booker is the most likely. He had set himself a tough fundraising deadline or he'd get out. So he's probably going to be out. Maybe Amy Klobuchar after that. Getting late for a lot of Democrats.

Final question: Can Democrat Joe Kennedy win a Senate seat from Massachusetts at only 38 years old?

Yes. His name is Kennedy. He certainly can. He's pulling ahead of Ed Markey in the Democratic primary polls. If he wins the primary, he's got a good shot at winning the seat. So, it looks like there could be a Kennedy back in the Senate from Massachusetts.

Carbon has a bad rep, but did you know it's a building block of life? As atoms evolved, carbon trapped in CO2 was freed, giving way to the creation of complex molecules that use photosynthesis to convert carbon to food. Soon after, plants, herbivores, and carnivores began populating the earth and the cycle of life began.

Learn more about how carbon created life on Earth in the second episode of Eni's Story of CO2 series.

The long-simmering conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over a region called Nagorno-Karabakh erupted over the weekend, with more than 50 killed (so far) in the fiercest fighting in years. Will it escalate into an all-out war that threatens regional stability and drags in major outside players?

62: In a referendum over the weekend, nearly 62 percent of Swiss voters said they wanted to preserve freedom of movement between the European Union and Switzerland, which is not a member of the EU. The right-wing Swiss People's Party had proposed imposing migration quotas at the border, saying that the current frontier is basically a... (okay, they didn't actually say it's a "Swiss cheese" but still).
