As the Senate impeachment trial of the President begins in earnest today, Carmen briefs us in on what to expect. It will be interesting to see how Senators respond to being literally silenced (and barred from their phones) after the daily proclamation is read, “All persons are commanded to keep silence, on pain of imprisonment. Carmen discusses the impeachment trial with Nick Pitts. They also discuss the President’s approval rating and the much anticipated gun-rights rally in Richmond, Virginia which attracted some 22,000 participants. Then they talk about a viral tweet thread wherein people assert their views on passing along the faith generation to generation.
In the second half, Carmen discusses developments affecting refugees and new immigrants to the United States with Matthew Soerens.
