Zelensky plea for additional Ukraine support puts US in a bind

Jon Lieber, head of Eurasia Group's coverage of political and policy developments in Washington, discusses US support to Ukraine in its war against Russia.

Today's question, what will the US do next to support Ukraine and its war against Russia?

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky today addressed a joint session of Congress, reportedly moving some members to tears with his plea for additional support for Ukraine.

Will the Senate vote to convict Trump?

Watch Jon Lieber, who leads Eurasia Group's coverage of political and policy developments in Washington, lend perspective to this week's historic impeachment proceedings.

Impeachment. President Trump became the first president ever to be impeached twice this week. And the question on everybody's mind is will he be convicted in the Senate?

There was a really strong Republican vote against impeaching him in the House, with only 10 of the over 100 Republicans breaking with the President and voting to impeach him. And the question now is in the Senate, is there more support for a conviction? Senate Majority Leader McConnell has indicated he's at least open to it and wants to hear some of the facts. And I expect you're going to hear a lot of other Republicans make the same statement, at least until the trial begins.
