Sept. 26, 2019 — He admitted it. Donald Trump basically has acknowledged that he discussed former Vice President Joe Biden in a July call with Ukraine's president.  A transcript released by the White House shows Trump repeatedly pushing Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden and his son, Hunter.

Hardly normal behavior for an American president.

On Tuesday, push came to shove in Congress: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that a formal impeachment process would begin. And as of today, 222 House members — all Democrats except for Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, formerly a member of the GOP before being tarred and feathered for calling for Trump’s ouster months ago — support the impeachment process.

If this isn’t enough of a Constitutional crisis, the acting director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire, testified before the House today about a whistleblower’s report: Trump is on audio basically threatening the whistleblower’s life.

A whole lot is going on, and in today’s Modern Times podcast, we break it down.
