Kayla's Morning Kickstart: Impeachment, Russia and China

Impeachment

The House has sent articles of impeachment to the Senate Wednesday evening. The House's seven impeachment managers will read the articles in the Senate. The trial can officially start on Tuesday. President Trump says this phase of impeachment is a "hoax."


Russian government flips

The Russian government is resigning, according to CNN. The resignation of the Cabinet and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev came after Russian President Vladamir Putin proposed sweeping changes to the constitution that would limit his successors' power and keep it that way until 2024. Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny said it's Putin's goal to remain "sole leader for life." With these changes, Putin could go from being the country's president to the Prime Minister.


China's trade agreement

The U.S. and China signed the first phase of their trade agreement after nearly two years of back-and-forth negotiations. Chinese and American leaders are looking to "phase two" of the plan. Critics warn that while this agreement may ease tensions, it likely won't solve every problem.


Attacks in Syria

21 people were killed and 60 injured in Syria in an airstrike that came during what was supposed to be a ceasefire. Turkish and Russian officials agreed on the ceasefire Sunday, but Syria reports at least a dozen violations to the agreement.


It's warming up...

At least NASA says so. Scientists with NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said that 2019 was the second-hottest year on record. Heatwaves, wildfires and extreme precipitation are the result of the high temperatures.
