This Weeks News Update: Clinton Comments on Bernie, Impeachment Hearings, and What’s New in Flint, MI

Hillary Clinton blasts Sen. Bernie Sanders in a new documentary, saying "nobody likes him" and declining in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter to say whether she would endorse and campaign for him if he's the Democratic 2020 nominee. 

"He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done," Clinton says in the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "He was a career politician. It's all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it."

The comments in the documentary are aimed directly at his core campaign appeal -- that he's a political outsider pitching revolutionary change. In response, Senator Sanders said, "On a good day, my wife likes me." 

Impeachment Hearings have officially begun. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi selected seven House Democrats to make the lower chamber's case in the Senate trial. They are House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, Congresswoman Val Demings, Congressman Jason Crow, and Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia. 

Trump has been charged with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress when the House voted last year – largely along party lines – to impeach Trump over his dealings with Ukraine. Trump has repeatedly called the impeachment case a "hoax." 

Last year, Republicans accused Dems of exploiting their House majority to impeach the president. Now, Dems are accusing Republicans of similar partisan behavior in the Senate, which could lead to an acquittal.

The Supreme Court has declined to rule on whether Flint, MI residents can sue the city and state over the water contamination fiasco. This means the ruling falls to the lower courts which had already decided in favor of allowing citizens to sue. About 25,000 people have sued since the crisis began – when Flint switched its water source from Lake Huron to the Flint River (known to be more corrosive) to cut costs. Government officials failed to treat the water to reduce corrosive effects on old pipes, and 12 people died after contracting Legionnaires' disease. Now, this case heads back to the lower courts which had already decided in favor of allowing citizens to sue.
