Breitbart: CNN canceled its upcoming town halls featuring Democrat presidential candidates slated for next week due to the ongoing Senate impeachment trial, the outlet reported on Thursday.
CNN was slated to hold a two-day town hall event for the Democrat presidential candidates at Drake University on Tuesday, January 28, and Wednesday, January 29, just days before the February 3 Iowa caucuses.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Andrew Yang (D), Tom Steyer (D), Pete Buttigieg (D), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Joe Biden (D) were expected to attend. However, the ongoing impeachment trial in the Senate will make it virtually impossible for Sens. Sanders, Warren, and Klobuchar to participate.
“The cancellation shows how the impeachment trial is upending the 2020 campaign schedule just days before the Iowa caucuses,” CNN noted. “Klobuchar, Sanders, and Warren are absent from the trail as they serve as the jurors in the trial.” read more
