Up Close: Impeachment inquiry begins

NEW YORK (WABC) -- House Democrats are planning a quick start to their push for impeachment of President Donald Trump, with hearings and depositions starting this coming week.

The impeachment inquiry follows revelations that Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate Joe Biden and his family.

Bob Iger is out with a new book, "The Ride of a Lifetime", which might become a kind of case study in how to be a chief executive.
