Another day of arguments in President Trump's Senate impeachment trial begin later today. It comes after a marathon session that ran well past midnight as Republicans blocked eleven Democratic resolutions dealing primarily with subpoenas for witnesses and documents. The proposed Democratic witnesses include former National Security Adviser John Bolton and acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.       Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says the American people are focused on the impeachment trial of President Trump and that helped change the rules. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell penciled in changes to his proposal for rules of the trial after a group of Republicans asked for it. Schumer and Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy said that happened because those Republicans are feeling the pressure from the people they represent.       President Trump says the United States has a plan in place to contain the coronavirus outbreak. He made the comments while speaking at the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. The President confirmed the Centers for Disease Control is addressing the outbreak that has killed at least 17 people in China.       Three young children are dead and a woman is under arrest for their deaths in Arizona. Police in Phoenix say 22-year-old Rachel Henry smothered her three-year-old son, two-year-old daughter and seven-month-old daughter to death at their home. The children were found dead on Monday evening and Henry was arrested after admitting to killing them.       Monty Python comedian Terry Jones is dead at the age of 77. His family confirmed he passed away last night with his wife Anna Soderstrom by his side at home in North London. Jones acted and directed several of the comic troupe's most well known works including "Life of Brian" as well as "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" along with Terry Gilliam.       Express is closing 91 stores. The fashion retailer announced today the closures are part of a "fleet rationalization" following lower than normal sales during the holidays. Express officials say declining foot traffic, fast-fashion and online shopping are making competition stiff.
