Six Democratic presidential candidates sparred on Tuesday night in Des Moines, the last debate before the crucial Iowa caucuses. The debate, hosted by CNN and The Des Moines Register, focused heavily on foreign policy and rising tensions with Iran following the U.S. assassination of that country’s top military commander, Qassem Soleimani.
As the presidential field continues to narrow, the U.S. Senate is preparing for the historic impeachment trial of President Trump, for which Democratic Senators Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, and independent Senator Bernie Sanders are all expected to leave the campaign trail to serve their role as jurors.
