The US House of Representatives has voted to proceed with the formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. Lawmakers approved rules for the next stage, including public hearings, in the investigation into Trump's attempt to have Ukraine investigate a domestic political rival. Also, President Barack Obama's former National Security Advisor, Susan Rice on impeachment, the US withdrawal from northern Syria and why she thinks the US is exporting what she calls, "instability around the world." Plus, Australia's controversial "backpacker tax," a 15% tax that has hit Americans who earn money while on long-term vacations in Australia, has been ruled illegal.
