Public hearings in the Trump impeachment probe will continue Friday. Wednesday's hearing ran over five-and-a-half hours and featured testimony from two veteran diplomats. President Trump could become only the third president in U.S. history to be impeached by the House. Tomorrow's hearing will feature testimony from former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovonavitch [[ yo-VON-ah-vitch ]].        Senator Lindsey Graham is blocking an effort to recognize the Armenian genocide. The South Carolina Republican yesterday shut down a resolution from New Jersey Democrat Robert Menendez to officially recognize the deaths of one-point-five million Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Empire as a genocide. Graham rejected the resolution after meeting Wednesday with President Trump and Turkey's president.       Facebook is taking action against fake accounts on its site. The social media giant's latest Community Standards Enforcement Report shows five-point-four billion such accounts have been taken down so far this year. That's far more than the three-point-three billion accounts removed in 2018.        The student body president of a Florida university is in trouble for allegedly spending 50-thousand dollars in student fees to invite Donald Trump Junior to speak on campus. The University of Florida student senate approved a resolution Tuesday to remove Michael Murphy for abuse of power, accusing him of advancing his own beliefs while endangering students "marginalized by the speakers' white nationalist supporters."        A Colorado sports arena says it will review its security procedures after a Muslim woman was told to take off her hijab or be denied entry. The woman went to the Pepsi Center in Denver on November 5th to watch one of her daughters sing the National Anthem, but was stopped at will call and told to remove "that thing" on her head.        Starbucks has a holiday deal today. The coffee giant is offering buy-one-get-one free from 2 to 7 p.m. The deal applies to all handcrafted drinks, grande or larger.
