President TrumpAre the Democrats inching closer to impeaching President Trump after the whistleblower complaint controversy? Yesterday, after Trump acknowledged he talked about Joe Biden during a July call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned the administration things might be heading “into a whole new stage of investigation.” CNN has previously reported that Trump pressed Zelensky in the call to investigate Biden’s son Hunter and his links to a gas company. This took place as US military aid to Ukraine was hanging in the balance, leading some Democrats to accuse the President of abusing his power.WSJ: Trump pressured Ukraine President to investigate Biden's sonWSJ: Trump pressured Ukraine President to investigate Biden's sonWSJ: Trump pressured Ukraine President to investigate Biden's sonJUST WATCHEDWSJ: Trump pressured Ukraine President to investigate Biden’s sonReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

United NationsThe annual United Nations General Assembly kicks off today in New York, with more than 90 heads of state gathering at UN headquarters for a week’s worth of meetings. The assembly’s first big event is the Climate Action summit, where UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has asked leaders to offer “concrete and transformative plans” to fight the climate crisis. President Trump won’t be there, though. He’s skipping the climate summit to host a session on religious persecution. Tomorrow, the parade of speeches by world leaders begins, starting with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. Trump is scheduled to speak tomorrow as well. Everyone will be watching as well to see whether Trump meets with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, after tensions between the two countries flared up after the attack on the oil fields in Saudi Arabia.Children worldwide unite in global climate strikeChildren worldwide unite in global climate strikeChildren worldwide unite in global climate strikeJUST WATCHEDChildren worldwide unite in global climate strikeReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Emmy AwardsSome “Game of Thrones” fans were disappointed with the fantasy show’s final season, but apparently Emmy voters weren’t. “Thrones” capped off its epic run last night by winning its fourth Emmy for best drama series. The show won 59 Emmys during its eight seasons. The Amazon series “Fleabag” was a major upset winner for best comedy, and the show’s star, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, also took home acting and writing honors. “Pose” star Billy Porter made history, becoming the first openly gay black man to win the lead actor in a drama series Emmy, and there were several speeches citing LGBTQ and women’s rights.
