Republicans are challenging the testimony of two veteran diplomats in the House impeachment probe. During the first day of public impeachment hearings, California Republican Devin Nunes [[ NEW-nezz ]] accused Democrats of using witnesses to invent a narrative to support impeachment and said Dems are making things up. In earlier remarks, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent said it's clear to him that Russia interfered in the 2016 campaign.        President Trump says he's too busy working to watch the impeachment inquiry taking place on Capitol Hill. Trump is meeting with Turkey's president at the White House. He called the inquiry taking place in Congress a witch hunt and says they're using television lawyers.       Former Housing Secretary Julian [[ WHO-lee-on ]] Castro is unveiling a comprehensive plan to help Americans with disabilities. The plan aims to make major investments in special education to ensure schools across the U.S. are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. It would also provide at least 450-thousand housing units for disabled people and outlines a disability-inclusive plan for disaster evacuations.        Reports say the White House will be livestreaming construction of the border wall. The Washington Post says senior adviser Jared Kushner and other White House officials are planning to launch 24-hour web cameras at the construction site on the southern border. The report said the livestream is an effort to drum up support from the public and to show that President Trump is keeping his campaign promise to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border.        Juul [[ JEWEL ]] Labs plans to eliminate 650 jobs over the next year. That represents about 16-percent of the company's workforce. A market leader in the electronic cigarette industry, Juul has been on the defensive following stories about teen vaping and lung illness and fatalities related to vaping.       Grammy award-winner John Legend is adding a new title to his resume. The "Preach" singer has been named People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2019. Legend tells the magazine he was excited but also a little scared when he learned about the crown, adding "it's a lot of pressure."
