Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is calling on John Bolton to testify at President Donald Trump's impeachment trial after the revelation that a draft of Bolton's book undercuts a key defense argument. (Jan. 27) President Donald Trump's legal team argued against the relevance of testimony from Trump's former national security adviser John Bolton on Tuesday while the Senate braced for debate on whether to summon witnesses into the impeachment trial. (Jan. 28) Sen. Chuck Schumer reiterated that Democrats are "seeking the truth," and hopes four Republican senators will "rise to the occasion." The coronavirus that started in Wuhan, China, last month has spread to more than 18 countries, as governments take steps to stop it.

This as Washington calls on Beijing to allow more public health experts into China to help halt the spread of the virus. More from VOA's Mariama Diallo.
