What we learned from the impeachment hearings, and what will we hear next week? Three service members accused or convicted of war crimes are cleared by President Trump; why did the Pentagon want him to stay out of it? Plus, a setback in the fight to eradicate polio.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testifies publicly in the impeachment inquiry today. What more will she reveal?

During the impeachment inquiry's first public testimony, a top diplomat describes a previously unknown phone call involving President Trump. What else did we learn? Why is a federal regulator probing Google's collection of health data? And a civil-rights group says it has hundreds of emails suggesting a key White House adviser promoted white-nationalist views — and plans to release more.

Public hearings start today in the impeachment inquiry. How will witness testimony play out before the cameras? Trump hosts Turkish President Erdogan at the White House. What do both leaders want from each other? And are Hong Kong protests entering a new, more violent phase?
With public hearings in the impeachment inquiry set to start Wednesday, we examine the evidence: Do recently released testimonies indicate a presidential abuse of power?

Young, undocumented immigrants march on Washington ahead of a landmark Supreme Court case. They're chanting "home is here." What's at stake for these DACA recipients? The impeachment investigation takes a different direction tomorrow. The inquiry goes public. Democrats want some of the key actors to tell their stories to shape public opinion. But which officials do Republicans want to hear from and why? And what should be done with foreign fighters who joined ISIS? Hundreds of them are being held in Turkish prisons. Turkey's government says it's time for them to go home and face justice.

The students "are not asking the government for a bailout or a handout". They are not banks or billionaires after all.

Trump didn't just say "do us a favor." He said "do us a favor THOUGH." That is a very important distinction on and for the record.

True story: My husband and I fight over listening to NPR's Up First. I wanna listen to it first thing when I wake up, but I have to wait till my husband leaves because he wants to listen to it on his drive to work. Other times, I'll pick him up for work and he puts on Up First for the ride home and I go nuts because I've already heard it. Thought you should know about the marital discord your awesome show is causing. LOLOL but seriously thanks for all the great work you do and keep it up! We love you!

A great start to the day, the incorrect information is great! Today they called the Purple Heart an award for service...I think pretty much everyone knows that a Purple Heart is awarded to someone injured in wartime combat. If they get the small stuff wrong, what else are they getting wrong.

they actually let chapo's son go because the cartel had some families tied to gas tankers and they said they'd kill them if the gov didn't realise the guy.

It seems like under NPR's description, eveyone Hongkonger has bad thought and impression on the Chinese communist parade. I am just wondering how that can be true.

Floods in Houston isn't news. These places aren't doing enough for disaster prevention and so it bothers me when others are expected to help clean up their mess.
