While all that played out in Washington, DC, President Donald Trump was rallying supporters in a city called Battle Creek.
He slammed Democrats' impeachment efforts as "illegal" and a "disgrace" - and pointed out how there is little chance he will be convicted, and removed from office, by the Senate.

Al Jazeera's John Hendren reports from Battle Creek.
The impeachment trial of US President Donald Trump is about to begin.

While all the wrangling between Democrats and Republicans over this case has been based exclusively in Washington, the reason Mr Trump has been impeached lies thousands of miles away on another continent.

Paul Adams, BBC diplomatic correspondent, has been to Ukraine to find out why it is so closely-linked to the Trump trial.
The sixth Democratic presidential primary debate will be held in Los Angeles Thursday night, one day after President Trump's impeachment. CBSN political reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns joined CBSN from L.A. with a preview of what to expect, and Democratic strategist Michael Starr Hopkins and Republican strategist Joseph Pinion joined CBSN with analysis.
This week, news was bombarded with developments on the impeachment front, the next steps in the President Trump's upcoming impeachment trial and Democratic debate drama. But more news broke that you might have missed, and we've got you covered. The United States and China reached a deal settling the trade war, for now, and the Senate passed a bill on the U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement. Also on the news, rains poured over Australia providing some relief to the raging fires, and equal rights scored a win in Virginia.
