President Trump calls impeachment a "very sad thing" for the country. Talking with reporters at the White House, Trump ripped the impeachment votes in the House Judiciary Committee. Trump called it a sham, a hoax, a witch hunt and an embarrassment. He argued he has done nothing wrong and accused Democrats of "trivializing impeachment."        A federal judge is questioning why the Trump Administration stopped all negotiations over subpoenaed documents for the citizenship question on the 2020 census. It's been a year since a review of the documents has been subpoenaed. The House Oversight Committee issued them after the Trump Administration sought to add the question.        Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden is appealing to voters in Texas. He held a rally Friday suggesting the state would be a battleground state in 2020. He said he'd take care of the military both home and abroad.        The FDA is investigating a new E. coli outbreak and it's the third one linked to romaine lettuce. More than a dozen people got sick after eating at six salad restaurants in Seattle. The update comes just days after the CDC urged people to throw out Sunflower Crisp bagged salad kits from Fresh Express.        Leaders from around New Jersey are discussing Tuesday's deadly shooting in Jersey City. Governor Phil Murphy led an interfaith round table discussion Friday. The shooting is being investigated as terrorism carried out by two shooters who were motivated by hate for police and Jewish people.       The General Motors plant in Missouri is retaining four-thousand jobs after a one-point-five-billion dollar investment. The plant expansion will allow for the production of the next-generation of GM midsize pickup trucks. One-billion-dollars will be spent upgrading the facility.
