On Politics A.M.: Esper Fails to Back Trump Claim Against Iran

The defense secretary said he hadn’t seen specific evidence of a plot to hit four embassies.

Good Monday morning. Here are some of the stories making news in Washington and politics today.

  • A nearly yearlong run of good will between Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders appears to be evaporating in the run-up to the Iowa caucuses. Ms. Warren said on Sunday that she was “disappointed” the Sanders campaign had used a script for volunteers that suggested she was appealing mainly to highly educated voters and would not be able to expand the Democratic Party coalition.
  • Some aspects of how Mr. Trump’s team will approach the impeachment trial have yet to be determined, but the basic configuration of the team defending the television-savvy president in a made-for-TV congressional event has been established.
  • About a dozen Saudi students training alongside the American military in the United States will be sent back to Saudi Arabia after a review that stemmed from the killing of three American service members at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla., last month.

Today’s On Politics briefing was compiled by Isabella Grullón Paz in New York.
