More Democrats are calling for impeachment proceedings to start, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi isn't one of them. The San Francisco Democrat plans to meet with her caucus tomorrow morning to address their concerns. The number of Democrats calling for impeachment increased after former White House Counsel Don McGahn ignored a Congressional subpoena today at the White House's direction.       After striking out with former White House Counsel Don McGahn, the House Judiciary Committee is issuing new subpoenas for McGahn's top aide and former communications chief Hope Hicks. McGahn ignored his subpoena and did not testify today. His aide, Annie Donaldson, took detailed notes while he was White House counsel.       President Trump is claiming he is committed to Iran not getting a nuclear weapon. Still, he told Fox News yesterday that he is not gunning for war with the Middle East nation. American officials have been warning a possible Iranian threat in recent weeks.       The CDC is reporting there are now nearly 900 cases of measles in 24 states. The record number of cases was 963 in 1994. The largest concentration of the outbreak remains in New York and is hitting the Orthodox Jewish community hard.       The daughter of actress Lori Loughlin [[ LOCK - lin ]] is reportedly begging USC to allow her to return to her studies. Olivia Jade Giannulli is reportedly asking to stay at the University of Southern California. US Weekly reports Olivia Jade Giannulli wants to alter her public image after the college bribery scandal damaged it.        Sesame Street will introduce foster care to its audience through a yellow-haired muppet called Karli. She is a friend of Elmo and arrives on the show during National Foster Care Month.
