2/9: Former Pres Trump's second impeachment trial begins. The vaccine rollout is picking up speed.
Former President Trump goes on trial today in the U.S. Senate, as the first president ever to face impeachment after leaving office.

2/4: Republicans refuse to punish one of their own members. Challenges getting the vaccine to rural areas.
We are at a crucial moment right now in American politics, with the Republican party facing a stark choice about its future.

2/3: New positive signs in the fight against COVID, but there’s still a troubling racial disparity in who is getting the vaccine.
There's a new reason to be cautiously optimistic about the timeline to beat the pandemic. AstraZeneca says its coronavirus vaccine not only prevents the virus, but slows the spread as well. Hospitalizations are also down in America, part of a weeks-long trajectory. But the good news is not evenly distributed when it comes to vaccinations. Scientists in England say the fast-spreading COVID-19 variant first found in the UK is now evolving, in a way that could make existing vaccines less effective. We have new details this morning on one of the deadliest days for the FBI in nearly 35 years.

Meteorologist and climate specialist Jeff Berardelli joins us to explain how climate change is affecting the storm. The race to vaccinate Americans against COVID is accelerating as new strains of the disease spread around the United States. 32 states have now detected variants of the virus first found in the UK, Brazil and South Africa, putting even more pressure on the vaccination push and hospitals. Senate Democrats are making plans to pass President Biden's sweeping $1.9 trillion COVID relief package, with or without Republican support. A group of ten GOP senators is proposing a much smaller measure, and urging the president to follow through on his promise to work with Republicans.

Mr. Biden is expected to sign ten more today as part of an aggressive new effort to control the pandemic. The Senate, now controlled by Democrats, confirmed the first of President Biden's cabinet nominees last night.
