Massachusetts Rep. Mike Capuano is digging in on California Rep. Brad Sherman for drawing up impeachment articles for Trump, which began circulating Monday, per Politico. Sherman has requested feedback by the middle of this week.

Sherman and Texas Rep. Al Green, who is also drafting articles, both say Trump has engaged in obstruction of justice in the Russia probe, and Sherman notes impeachment "is a long road. But we ought to begin" since it will take a while.

Breaking party lines:

  1. Capuano reportedly said there should be a discussion in the caucus before moving forward.
  2. Some Dems are hesitant to push swing-state voters away from going blue.
  3. Democratic leadership is urging reserved actions about using the impeachment word just yet since the investigations haven't revealed enough yet.

Japan's new prime minister said on Monday the nation will seek to become carbon-neutral by 2050, a move that will require huge changes in its fossil fuel-heavy energy mix in order to succeed.

Why it matters: Japan is the world's fifth-largest largest source of carbon emissions. The new goal announced by Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga is stronger than the country's previous target of becoming carbon neutral as early as possible in the later half of the century.
