Kayla's Morning Kickstart: Impeachment, presidential race, fraternity deaths, CMA awards
Impeachment, you're live on air.
The impeachment investigations were available to stream yesterday on CNN's Youtube Channel. Bill Taylor, the top US diplomat in Ukraine, told lawmakers about another conversation when Trump voiced his desire to push the Ukrainians to publicly announce investigations.
Late entrance into race
A former Massachusetts governor enters into a crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates less than three months before the Iowa caucuses. In December, Deval Patrick decided not to run for president, but has since expressed regret in that decision. Seeing hope in the unstable primary fight, Patrick comes in at a challenging time. Patrick follows in the footsteps of former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, casting doubt on the current slate of candidates. The odds for a late entrant like Patrick could be steep as he doesn't have personal wealth or fame.
Three fraternity-related deaths in less than a week have brought renewed scrutiny in Greek life at campuses across the country. A 19-year-old at Washington State University died from potentially alcohol-related causes. A fraternity member at Arizona State was found in his room. Another man was found last Friday at San Diego State University after attending a fraternity event.
The biggest names in country music took to the stage at the 53rd Annual CMA Awards last night. Carrie Underwood hosted the night alongside country music legends Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton live from the Bridgestone Arena. Garth Brooks took the night's biggest honor, Entertainer of the Year, and the album of the year when to Maren Morris. Kacey Musgraves, Blake Shelton and Old Dominion were all included in the list of winners. The night was filled with performances from Miranda Lambert, Pink, Kelsea Ballerini and many more.
