  • Donald Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty for a myriad of criminal charges including lying to Congress to violating campaign finance laws by paying hush money women Trump had affairs with.
  • In a heated meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer about funding for his border wall, Trump declared that would “be proud” to shut down the government until the Democrats agree to set aside $5 billion for the project.
  • Nancy Pelosi made a deal with Democratic critics saying that she will support a proposition that would limit Democrats’ terms in senior positions in the House of Representatives. This means that she will likely be Speaker of the House again, but will step down by 2022.
  • The Senate has advanced a measure to end U.S. Military support for Saudi Arabian-led coalitions in Yemen, which shows defiance of Trump’s response to the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
  • A bipartisan agreement has been reached that will make members of Congress who are accused of sexual harassment pay out of pocket for their settlements, which would help protect the victims. The bill is expected to pass the Senate this week.
  • Prime Minister Theresa May survived a confidence vote by the Conservative party, but the fate of the Brexit deal remains murky as parliament is “heading towards deadlock.”
