Democratic impeachment managers are set to complete opening statements today in President Trump's Senate trial. House impeachment manager Adam Schiff [[ shiff ]] claims there is overwhelming evidence of President Trump's guilt and he must be removed from office. The California Democrat argued that Trump could do "a lot of damage" in the months before November's presidential election.       As his Senate impeachment trial rolled on in Washington yesterday, President Trump was at his Miami resort to kick off the Republican National Committee's winter meeting. Trump was there for around an hour meeting with Republican leaders before returning to D.C. The event was closed to the press and public.       A worker is missing after a huge explosion at a Houston business early this morning. The blast damaged nearly every home in the neighborhood, shattering glass and breaking garage doors. Officials say they can't begin to search for the missing person until they turn off the valves and make sure it is safe to do so.       Facebook is preparing for the Iowa Caucuses by protecting people from misinformation. Facebook's head of cyber security policy Nathaniel Gleicher [[ GLEE-ker ]] says teams are watching out for online trends that may be targeting public debate and the spread of misinformation. Gleicher says he has been working with election officials to respond as quickly as possible.       Lizzo says her music is for everybody. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the "Truth Hurts" singer was responding to criticism that she only makes music for white people. She said that as a black woman, she makes music for people from her experience as a black woman, music that hopefully makes people feel good.       The fine stationery store Papyrus is going out of business.
