This morning House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment, accusing President Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The Judiciary committee is expected to vote on the articles by the end of the week, with a full House vote expected next week.

“I think there are two impeachment votes here…I think the first impeachment vote is by House democrats in December of 2019 and I think the second impeachment vote is in November of 2020 by the American people. They will eventually decide whether or not they thought House democrats were right to impeach this President,” Senior Political Analyst David Brody said on today’s CBN News Daily Rundown.

“Africans across the continent…are sharing their personal stories of how they met Jesus Christ at a Reinhard Bonnke crusade 10-15 years ago and they’re still believers. I think that’s the legacy, that’s the lasting impact of Bonnke’s obedience to the gospel of Jesus Christ," said Senior International Correspondent George Thomas on today's CBN News Daily Rundown.

Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke passed away over the weekend at the age of 79. For six decades, the German-born preacher crisscrossed the African continent preaching the love of Jesus Christ.

Listen in to today's episode as Thomas remembers attending one of Bonnke's crusades back in 1985, interviewing him in 2010 and looks back at a calling that changed a nation.

Democrat presidential candidates have pledged to use the power of the law to enforce even more censorship from Big Tech, calling on Silicon Valley to crackdown on "hate speech." The trouble is that as Big Tech censors "hate," it's also silencing Christian and conservative content. Caitlin Burke recently spoke with a veteran who decided to fight back against Christian censorship, by creating a platform specifically meant to give them a voice.

In 2017, USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to up to 175 years in federal prison for first-degree criminal sexual conduct. He'd sexually abused more than 160 girls and women over more than two decades. The first woman to come forward was Rachael Denhollander. Her accusations emboldened many other victims to come forward. Reporter Heather Sells recently sat down with Denhollander to talk about her experience. She says this is a platform she never wanted, but it's important that she be a good steward of it, all the same, because other victims are watching. Sells is on today's CBN News Daily Rundown.

Justice Neil Gorsuch recently sat down to speak with CBN News Senior Washington correspondent, Jennifer Wishon, about his new book, A Republic, If You Can Keep It.  She was given strict guidelines for the interview and told to stick only to topics he wrote about. However, there’s not much in the book about his faith and she felt that was something she needed to ask him about.

“I spoke to his staff before the interview and at first they were a little leery because Justice Gorsuch thinks his faith is very personal, as many people do, but then after some time they came back to me and told me that he would be willing to answer one question about his faith,” Wishon said on today’s CBN News Daily Rundown.

Listen in to hear how Gorsuch says his faith has sustained him throughout his career and about a special moment during his Supreme Court nomination process when God provided exactly what he needed at just the right moment.

Democrats faced off in Atlanta Wednesday night in their fifth debate. The big surprise of the night: no one went after Pete Buttigieg, who just last week surged ahead in the Iowa and New Hampshire polls. 

"The game all along has been that the Democrat who's going to win is going to have to convince democratic voters that they're the one that will best be able to beat Donald Trump. And so, therefore, I think Donald Trump has shockingly been the focus of all of this all long. That's why you're not seeing the knockdown, drag-out democrat fight," said CBN News chief political correspondent David Brody.

Listen in to today's CBN News Daily Rundown for a post-debate debrief with Brody and CBN News national security correspondent Eric Philips.

Pete Buttigieg may not be the official front-runner in the Democratic primary, but CBN News chief political analyst, David Brody, says there’s no doubt the attacks in tonight’s debate will be aimed in his direction.

“He’s a great candidate…he reminds me of Barack Obama back in 2007…from a cadence perspective, from a generational perspective, from an uplifting perspective and boy, he’s able to kind of weave a narrative…and he’s brought in faith, Barack Obama brought in faith as well, and he’s able to do it in this kind of progressive, compassionate Matthew 25 type of gospel that we’ve heard before,” Brody said of Buttigieg.

Listen in to today's CBN News Daily Rundown as Brody shares his expectations for tonight's fifth Democratic debate.
