A New Front-runner?
Senator Elizabeth Warren took -- by far -- the most heat from her rivals in Tuesday's Democratic Primary debate, even if it mostly came on issues that have played out before. The scrutiny is a measure of Warren's newfound status as a front-runner, if not the front-runner, in the race. And Warren largely held her own, even while being double- and triple-teamed. Guest: Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA)

Kangaroo Court
Faced with the growing likelihood of impeachment, President Donald Trump is leading his party into an increasingly dangerous space. GOP lawmakers are being asked to ignore realities and their own instincts in defending a president whose conduct is not inspiring fierce loyalty. Meanwhile, the Bernie Sanders campaign suffers two big blows in one week. Guest: Nina Turner, national co-chair for the Bernie Sanders 2020 presidential campaign

"I was on the phone call"
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has stepped in to keep State Department officials from sitting for depositions this week. Key Democratic committee chairs responded by calling Pompeo himself a "fact witness" -- and stated that efforts to keep witnesses from talking to Congress "will constitute evidence of obstruction of the impeachment inquiry." Pompeo now admits he was "on the phone call" between President Trump and the President of Ukraine. Guest: Rep.

Impeachment Inquiry
Impeachment has now moved to a phase where there's probably nothing the White House can do to stop it. That's some unfamiliar territory for President Donald Trump. The launch of an official "impeachment inquiry" means congressional Democrats are now acting, with Trump left reacting. Guest: Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN)

She dialed all of us into the broad world she knew so well and the narrow worlds of the countless individuals she sought to know better. When Cokie spoke, we listened.

Gun Violence
Can a president who's sowed so many divisions help a nation heal? And does he really want to? Those are among the big questions confronting President Donald Trump on a very big day for his presidency. His trips to Ohio and Texas on Wednesday will be among the most scrutinized of his time in office, as economic uncertainties and foreign policy challenges also demand his attention.

The Race and Racism
One story has been dominating the headlines this week: racist tweets. President Donald Trump takes to the campaign trail Wednesday night in North Carolina having chosen new opponents for himself. He did so by elevating four female House Democrats, who collectively showed the potential power of the new Democratic Party -- and exposed some potential political weaknesses. Even Tuesday's chaotic scenes on the House floor didn't change the fact that Democrats are finding unity and fresh rallying cries in response to the president's gambit.Guests: Politico's Tim Alberta, Former S.C.

The First Debates
It starts with a candidate in the middle, who has seen her ideas and -- yes -- her plans, bubble into the conversation along with her poll numbers. Sen. Elizabeth Warren gets either the very lucky or very unlucky position of being the highest-polling candidate on the stage Wednesday night. She'll be center stage, alongside former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, with Sens. Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro among those also looking for breakout moments.

If it's a "movement," as President Donald Trump said repeatedly on Tuesday night, it doesn't move that much.

In the toggling between "if" and "when" on the subject of impeachment, the "when" side appears to be winning.
