Thanks for joining us tonight..

With the house of representatives poised to vote on articles of impeachment against president donald trump... he has been meeting with aides and attorneys to develop a strategy for a likely trial in the senate.

Cbs's paula reid has the latest from the white house..

While meeting in the oval office today with the leader of paraguay, president trump unloaded on house democrats to use the power of impeachment on this nonsense is an embarrassment to this country.

And he said a likely senate impeachment trial will be done áhisá way trump: - i'll do whatever i want.

Look, we did nothing wrong.

..i wouldn't mind a long process because i'd like to see the whistle-blower who's a fraud.

But senate majority leader mitch mcconell doesn't see a need to drag things out because he says there's "no chance" the president will be removed from office.

Today he brushed off complaints that his coordination with the white house over the trial was inappropriate.

145738 it was done during the clinton impeachment as well.

Not surprisingly, president clinton and the democrats in the senate were coordinating their strategy, were on the same side.

This afternoon one of people at the center of the impeachment investigation - the president's personal attorney rudy giuliani - was spotted arriving at the white house just moments before the house judiciary vote.

He stayed for two hours.

Speaking to cbs news, giuliani said he wants to participate in a senate trial, adding "if they want a lesson in cross- examination, they should have me do it."

Tag: giuliani tells cbs news he is in constant contact with his client president trump even as he continues to be under investigation by the trump justice department.

Mississippi's congressional delegation is also preparing for the vote and possible impeachment.

Courtney ann jackson has reaction..

No mississippians are on the house judiciary committee but the congressional delegation was quick to share their reactions friday morning just after the house judiciary committee's vote to approve the articles of impeachment.

Millsaps professor dr. nathan shrader makes this note.

"i tend to get a bit nervous when members of the house who are not on the judiciary committee begin to weigh in on how they intend to vote on articles of impeachment before the whole house has had a chance to debate."

Both congressmen michael guest and stephen palazzo making note of speaker's pelosi's conditions for impeachment and saying they haven't been met.

Congressman trent kelly calling the articles "unconstitutional".

Democrat congressman bennie thompson tweeted that "the president obstructed justice.

Republicans can whine and lie all they want but he will be impeached."

"within the course of another week, it's very likely that president donald j.

Trump will become only the third president with andrew johnson and bill clinton to formally be impeached by the house.

So, that in and of itself is significant."

But he notes that the implications of that are also significant given the fact that trump is running for re- election in 2020.

Senator roger wicker says even if it makes it to the senate... "i'm quite certain the president will not be removed from office.

It will probably be a party line vote."

And he doesn't think mississippians are in favor of removing him from office.

"these allegations don't rise to the seriousness, even if you accept the democrats notion to remove the elected president of the united states, the leader of the free world."

The us postal service expects over 800 million packages and 13 ábillioná pieces of mail to be delivered this holiday season.

Our rylie livingston takes a look at how the stores are handling the rush and finds out when you should have your packages in the mail.

It's peak holiday shopping season and with all those purchases many people need a way to send them to loved ones... that's when the rubber hits the road for the u s postal service, ups and fed ex.

"well, it's what we call peak season in business terms, typically, november, equals a month and a half of business december equals two months of average business.

So it's a very energetic time of the year we've got lots of customers coming in wanting to ship stuff to family, tons of amazon returns.

So it's a busy busy season for us.

" employees are staying busy, packing, taping, and shipping.

"our busiest day was last monday we had 6000 packages just from the city of columbus and county and columbus.

We normally have 2000 so we tripled our volume in one day," and ken oglesbee says it's just getting started.

"next monday is supposed to be our busiest shipping day."

David buchanan at the ups store says it takes a lot of preparation to get ready for the holidays.

"we certainly want to stock up, not only on supplies such as boxes bubble wrap peanuts, you know gift cards, all sorts of office supplies.

We also make sure we're stack that we're staffed up on personnel.

I want to make sure that both of our stores have plenty of trained people so that instead of learning on the job they're actually performing and being able to help those customers, so we can get them in quickly service them appropriately and get them out with a smile on their face."

"we have tripled the volume that we have so that means we had to have more carriers, more people, delivering but then it takes a lot of room in our trucks to get those packages and to their destinations."

Some people come in with their packages pre-boxed while others need a helping hand.

"grandparents are sending the grandkids multiple presents at a time.

So yeah but we try to get them all in one box that way it's not multiple boxes arriving at one time, so it'll e easier on them and us as well."

Both ups and the us postal service recommend getting your packages shipped by ánextá friday if you are using ground or first class shipping.

However; oglesbee recommends getting your packages out by áthis comingá monday due to the high volume of deliveries.

Carriers do a good job of getting those packages to their destinations, but sometimes they don't get into the hands of the people who ordered them.

That includes how fast the package is moving sot here's a thief in action in may.

Police say this man stole a box off of the same porch.

Being that some of them may not get to their home seeing all toys they're going to have here and then seeing the theme it might be overjoy for them."

Richardson wants these events to bring the community closer together.

"we're hoping these children that come out tonight will pay it forward one day.

We're doing it for them so we're hoping that they will learn from this and they'll want to pay it forward one day."
