    Donald Trump acquitted, the race to the White House begins

    Fresh from a cold week in Iowa, the team are back in Washington and just in time for Donald Trump to be acquitted in the impeachment trial.

    Cordelia Lynch, Amanda Walker and Emily Purser Brown debate whether that inevitable outcome will change anything in Washington…or not.

    Meanwhile, the results from the Iowa caucus drip in - with a surprise winner - after a disastrous night for the organisers and their new results-service app.

    It's our final episode this season - what a whirlwind it's been in Washington lately. We'll be back with plenty of the news on the 2020 campaign trail soon.

    Can anyone defeat Donald Trump in the 2020 election?

    Can anyone defeat Donald Trump in the 2020 election?

    This week the crew discuss the bombshell new revelations that could have changed the impeachment trial – and how Democrats’ hopes fell apart.

    Leaks from an upcoming book by former National Security Adviser John Bolton created major jeopardy over the question of whether the Senate would call witnesses as part of the trial: would enough Republicans want to hear what he had to say to rebel against their party?

    In the end, they didn’t - but it prompted a lot of questions for Amanda Walker, Cordelia Lynch and Emily Purser Brown to chew through.

    Also this week – the Iowa caucus is upon us! Emily and Cordelia are on the road in the snowy mid-west state, finding out which candidate is whipping up the most excitement.

    All you need to know from the first week of the impeachment trial

    All you need to know from the first week of the impeachment trial

    The impeachment trial is upon us! After weeks of wrangling, this week the Senate finally began to hear evidence in the trial that the Democrats hope will remove Donald Trump from office.

    Join Amanda Walker, Cordelia Lynch and Emily Purser Brown as they catch up on the highlights of this week's evidence, and how bad it is for the president.

    The week belonged to the Democrats, who had three days to present their case - but much of the action was outside of the Senate floor, with both sides trying to spin the evidence as best they could. We caught up with Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders - and many more of the politicians at the heart of this trial.

    Plus - with hours spent on the Senate floor without their phones, what are senators allowed to bring in with them? And what can they drink? You may be surprised by the answer.

    Will new evidence change the Senate impeachment trial?

    Will new evidence change the Senate impeachment trial?

    The impeachment trial is upon us, and the 2020 race is heating up – all while Donald Trump goes head-to-head with Iran.

    This week Amanda Walker, Cordelia Lynch and Emily Purser Brown catch up on the surprising twist in the impeachment story, as new evidence comes out ahead of the Senate trial beginning in earnest. We also check in on which of the Democrat candidates is cutting through, as the ‘woman’ question comes to the fore, and chew over the impact of President Trump’s action in the Middle East.

    President Trump gets impeached

    President Trump gets impeached

    It was a momentous week in Washington: for the third time in America's history - the House of Representatives voted to impeach a president.

    Donald Trump will not be removed from office but that should not detract from the gravity of this moment and what it means for the future.

    This week, Cordelia Lynch, Emily Purser Brown and Greg Milam talk through the highlights of this historic week, why it matters and what comes next.

    Cordelia takes us to Capitol Hill, where she was reporting as the House debated and then voted on the articles of impeachment. She got the views of several of those voting, including New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

    Plus, Greg travelled to Michigan, where President Trump held his final rally of the year, complete with Christmas trees topped with Make America Great Again hats. He spoke to Trump’s loyal fans to get their views on all the developments in Washington.

    High crimes and misdemeanors

    High crimes and misdemeanors

    It’s Go time in Washington DC. The Democrats have filed their Articles of Impeachment, and the stage is set for Donald Trump to be impeached by the House of Representatives.

    This week on Divided States, Cordelia Lynch, Amanda Walker and Emily Purser Brown catch up on the latest news in the impeachment process that is dominating politics in Washington – and get a view into how much Americans outside of the nation’s capital actually care.

    In part one, we discuss the highlights of the week – what’s in the articles of impeachment, what happens with the big vote next week – and are the outcomes already set in stone?

    In part two, Amanda travels to Racine in the south east corner of Wisconsin. A swing state, in 2016 the voters there turned away from the Democrats and helped Trump on his path to the White House. How do they feel now their president is facing such a serious challenge from the Democrats, and are they even listening?

    In part three, Cordelia has a conversation with Jeffrey Engel, co-author of the brilliant Impeachment: An American history. It is essential reading on what’s come before, and what the founding fathers would have made of Donald Trump’s actions – making him the perfect person to round out the week.
