Iranian security forces purportedly fire live ammunition at protesters despite Trump's warning
Videos emerged online Monday that purportedly show Iranian police and security forces firing live ammunition to disperse demonstrators protesting against the Islamic Republic after the country mistakenly downed a Ukrainian airline plane shortly after takeoff from Tehran.

There was no immediate report in Iranian state-run media on the incident near Azadi, or Freedom, Square in Tehran, but, if true, could be seen as an act of defiance against President Trump, who warned the regime against the use of deadly force. Trump late Sunday tweeted in Farsi that a combination of protests and sanctions have "choked off" Iran and said Tehran will be forced to the negotiation table.

Tehran has experienced unrest after the country admitted it mistakenly fired a missile that brought down a Ukrainian airline flight out of the country's capital, killing all 176 onboard. Click here for more on our top story.

Here's what happens once the Senate gets the articles of impeachment
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed in an interview Sunday that she and fellow Democrats will soon discuss sending articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate for a trial, and defended her decision to wait weeks to do so.

Despite criticism from both Republicans and some of her fellow Democrats, Pelosi said her strategy was sound. She called a resolution introduced by Republicans -- and supported by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell -- allowing for dismissal of the impeachment case if she failed to send the articles within 25 days a "cover-up."

Pelosi said she will talk to Democrats at the weekly caucus meeting Tuesday “on how we proceed further.” Fox News' Chad Pergram has an inside look at what could happen next. Click here for more.
