Dems Consider Impeachment: US Politics in 60 Seconds

Is the impeachment of President Trump more likely following the Mueller Report?


Well, it's slightly more likely, but still very unlikely to happen. There's not widespread public support. It would be very dangerous for Democrats to impeach. They'd rather just keep talking about it. Hold hearings, bring Miller up to the Hill, make it an issue in 2020.

What happened to Beto-mentum?

Well, he's been underwhelming on the stump and people are wondering where are the policy ideas. At a time when somebody like Elizabeth Warren seems to come out with new big ideas every day, he's got to step it up.

Will big GOP donors line up with Trump in 2020?

Yes, they already are. People who supported Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, they're all starting to line up with Trump, because they like the tax cuts and don't want to see a Democrat win.

Is there bipartisan support for lowering drug prices?

There is. It's a big issue for Trump, it's a big issue for Democrats. Possibility if one thing happens in this Congress this year it will be a bipartisan effort to lower drug prices.



And go deeper on topics like cybersecurity and artificial intelligence Microsoft On The Issues.

Meet Alessandra Cominetti, a recipient of MIT Technology Review Magazine's Innovators Under 35 award. As a lab technician at Eni's Research Centre for Renewable Energy in Novara, Alessandra has devoted her career to finding new solutions and materials to optimize solar energy. Much like the serendipitous encounter that resulted in her employment, her eagerness and willingness to try new things allowed her to stumble upon a material for the creation of portable solar panels.

Watch her remarkable story on the latest episode of Faces of Eni.

"If [the election] is very close and it ends up in the courts, that kind of protracted situation I think will lead many Americans to believe that it was an unfair election." Rick Hasen, election law expert and author of Election Meltdown, lays out some of the worst-case scenarios for Election Day, ranging from unprecedented voter suppression to dirty tricks by foreign actors. The conversation was part of the latest episode of GZERO World with Ian Bremmer. The episode begins airing nationally in the US on public television this Friday, October 30. Check local listings.

Joe Biden has vowed to radically change the US' approach to foreign policy and international diplomacy should he win next week's election.

But a lot has happened in four years under Donald Trump that could impede Biden's ability to simply return to the status quo ante. How different would US foreign policy really be under a Biden presidency? What will the two-term former vice president likely be able to change, and what's bound to remain the same, at least for now?

Jon Lieber, Managing Director for the United States at the Eurasia Group, shares his perspective on a special US election edition of US Politics In 60 Seconds:

So, we're about five days out from the election right now.

And the story of this week has been the remarkably steady polling lead for Joe Biden that he's had for months now. The other big story is the turnout, massive amounts of turnout. 100% of the 2016 vote already cast in Texas. 60% nationwide votes already cast. We are headed for record shattering turnout, could be around 155 million Americans voting.

On election night, what are we watching for?
