The coldest air of the season Rob, thank you. And next to the impeachment showdown. Democrats presenting their case at a hearing tomorrow morning. They say they have a rock-solid case, but Republicans aren't backing down. Here's David Wright. Reporter: On the eve of historic impeachment hearings, congress has been burning the midnight oil.
