Rep. Al Green, who has been on a “mission” to remove Donald Trump from office, is not optimistic the articles of impeachment unveiled by House Democrats on Tuesday will succeed in a Senate trial, but the Texas Democrat says he still thinks the push to force the president out of the White House won't end there. “If the Senate does not convict, that does not mean that it's over,” Green said in an interview with Yahoo News shortly after the articles were unveiled. “It simply means that for these two charges the president has not been convicted and he is still in office, which means that he is still subject to impeachment for other charges,” he said.

Key point (This is from our archive and appeared several years ago): Only an invasion of North Korea would likely stop the regime's missiles for good — but that would entail a horrendous war. The U.S. military is most worried about a North Korean nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missile, or ICBM, with the range to reach the U.S. homeland. If North Korea has not achieved this technical feat already by miniaturizing and “mating” a warhead to a reliable missile, then it's quite possible it will do so by the end of the decade.

Donald Trump will sign an executive order effectively defining Judaism as a nationality, not just a religion, in what the White House has described as an order to combat antisemitism on US college campuses. The move has already been criticised by free speech advocates, who were concerned a broader definition of antisemitism could be used to limit criticism of Israel's government. The order will widen the federal government's definition of antisemitism and instruct it to be used in enforcing laws against discrimination on college campuses, several US officials told the Associated Press.

The 12-month deficit came in above $1 trillion for a second month in a row.

More cities are punishing homeless people for sleeping in public, a new report shows, amid an increase in Americans living on the streets. Arresting or ticketing people who have nowhere else to go doesn't help them find permanent housing, according to the National Law Center for Homelessness and Poverty report.
