President Donald Trump broke the law. He did it by withholding aid to Ukraine. That's the conclusion of a report by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office. But will it affect the Senate impeachment trial? Three men were arrested this week in connection with a white supremacist group called "The Base." The suspects planned to build an assault rifle and had amassed over 1,600 rounds of ammunition. Who are they and what were their plans? Also, after more than 1,000 earthquakes in Puerto Rico, President Trump has signed a major disaster declaration. How much will this help the island?

President Donald Trump "knew exactly what was going on" in Ukraine. That's according to Rudy Giuliani's associate Lev Parnas. But how credible are his claims? In Russia, the prime minister and his entire cabinet resigned. The dramatic move came shortly after President Vladimir Putin proposed sweeping constitutional changes. Many see the shakeup as Putin's doing. We also get an inside view from China of the newly signed "Phase One" trade deal. What are Chinese officials telling people about the deal?

The House on Wednesday will vote to send articles of impeachment to the Senate. This as new details come to light about the pressure campaign against the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. Will it amplify calls to allow new evidence in the upcoming Senate trial? In the final Democratic presidential debate before the Iowa caucuses, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) confronted doubts over a woman in the White House head on. And 18 months after he began his trade war with China, President Donald Trump is set to sign a partial truce. What's in it?

Can U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper explain the intelligence that led to the killing of a top Iranian general? And what's the strategy if Iran retaliates in the future? In an interview with NPR, Esper answered those questions and more. Also, the Democratic presidential race is getting more personal. Tonight is the last Democratic debate before the Iowa caucuses. Apple is refusing to comply with the FBI's demand to unlock the phones of an alleged mass shooter. U.S. Attorney General William Barr isn't pleased. Is there a simple solution?

Iranians are in the streets protesting again, but they have turned their rage away from the U.S. They're demonstrating against their own government after it admitted to shooting down a Ukrainian airliner. President Donald Trump said Iranian general Qassem Soleimani posed an imminent threat to U.S. interests. So why did Defense Secretary Mark Esper say he didn't see any specific evidence? Also, Puerto Rico is dealing with the aftermath of some strong earthquakes. How are people coping, and are they expecting more?

As an Iranian, I am glad that no American soldier was killed in the Iranian missile attack on the US base in Iraq. Peace to humanity

NPR has not been unbiased two left for many years so it's typical that they would not have people who detest the Ayatollah and detest The General who are Iranians which there are many. and note that the general was struck in Iraq not Iran so why was he any rock with his other defense ministers at the same time of the attack on the embassy. Oh but wait please were just "protesters" not militant Quds backed Hezbollah.

For the past few debates now Andrew Yang has had the best performance on the stage. One day NPR might mention his name. Maybe.

"It's the Vice President's duty to provide godly counsel and be prayerful". When did the US become a theocracy?
