The CBN News Daily Rundown


A biologically male marathon runner who identifies as a transgender woman will compete in the USA Olympic trials later this month. It's a growing trend that's fueling a movement among female athletes to fight for their rights. In Connecticut, the families of three female high school runners filed a federal lawsuit this week, trying to block transgender athletes in the state from taking part in girls' sports. They argue that allowing athletes with male anatomy has deprived them of track titles and scholarship opportunities. Reporter Heather Sells has been following this story. She's on today's CBN News Daily Rundown.


The blow-back from the four-month-long impeachment saga has already begun, but will it mean anything for the 2020 elections, which are still eight months away? Capitol Hill correspondent Abigail Robertson has been on the campaign trail talking to voters and says so far Democrats seem fed-up with impeachment and Republicans, fired-up. Robertson is on today's CBN News Daily Rundown. 


“This party is trying to figure out what they want exactly. Do they want the energy and progressiveness and the younger voters on the left, the movement that Bernie Sanders has created? Or do they want a little bit more of a pragmatic approach to everything and someone that can beat Trump and also propose legislation that will be incrementally inching things down the field which is what Biden, Buttigieg, Klobuchar represent,” said chief political analyst David Brody on today's CBN News Daily Rundown.

Brody says the key time-frame will be between the South Carolina primary and Super Tuesday, when the pragmatic-left candidates may need to bind together behind whoever seems to be the front-runner in an effort to stop Bernie.

Today on the CBN News Daily Rundown he explains how God has equipped him to excel in this demanding job.


President Trump gave a speech like no president before him at the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday.

Filled with talk of God, impeachment, and the stock market the president also used his remarks to take digs at his political opponents.

His performance drew mixed reviews.

In the Washington Post, columnist Michael Gerson wrote, "Trump has shown a talent for exposing the sad moral compromises of his followers, especially his evangelical Christian followers."

David Brody joins the CBN News Daily rundown to discuss this and much more.

“They don’t believe they’re morally compromising when you have a president of the united states pushing strongly for Judeo-Christian values that are in the Bible. That is not a moral compromise. That is being a champion for what they believe are moral, Biblical values," Brody says.


After months of House and Senate impeachment proceedings, it's finally finished and Washington is breathing a sigh of relief.

CBN News National Security Correspondent Eric Philips and Faith Nation Anchor John Jessup join me on the CBN News Daily Rundown to break it all down.
