U.N. says humanitarian crisis unfolding in Ethiopia; Iran warns U.S.

CBS News Wednesday, 18 November 2020 ()
The U.N. said more than 27,000 people have fled Ethiopia into neighboring Sudan as fighting continues in Ethiopia's Tigray region. Also, Iran's government issued a stark warning to the U.S. over reports that President Trump asked advisers for options on striking Iran's main nuclear site, and a delegation from Bahrain touched down in Israel on the first direct commercial flight between the two countries. CBS News foreign correspondent Ian Lee joined "CBSN AM" from London with those headlines and more.

Trump To Pardon Many Before Leaving Office

The public should expect a "flurry" of pardons before President Donald Trump leaves office. A source close to the White House suggested this, according to reports at CNN. The reality is that pardons happen at the end of almost all previous administrations. This source said Trump's advisers say it would perfectly fine for Trump to pardon his family members. He may also pardon other associates preemptively, even if they haven't been charged with any crimes.
