Jimmy Barrett and Shara Fryer take you through the stories that matter on the morning of 01/14/2020, including: The so-called ‘Party of Diversity’ will hold a presidential debate featuring an all-white panel of candidates. Tonight’s debate at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa will be the first time in this election cycle that no minority contender will make the stage. It's a dynamic that critics say threatens to undercut the party's rhetoric of inclusivity. The party will host at least five additional debates in 2020. Candidates qualify based on public polling and the number of small donors they attract. Over time, those standards have risen, winnowing the field. New York State Senate Democrats passed legislation that will automatically register all residents who obtain driver’s licenses through the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMVs). As of this year, illegal aliens are able to obtain driver’s licenses in New York, indicating that illegal aliens and non-citizens will only be excluded from the state voter rolls if they check the “opt-out” box before applying for a license. Senate Republicans anticipate that Trump’s impeachment trial will begin sometime this week, after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she will send the two articles of impeachment “soon,” according to Sen. John Thune, the No. 2 GOP leader. The Houston Astros fire manager A.J. Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow following a major league baseball investigation into sign stealing. The move follows the league’s announcement the pair would be suspended for the entire 2020 season. The team also will pay a $5 million fine and lose its first and second round picks in 2020 and 2021.
