CNN announced Thursday that the network would be canceling all town halls related to the Democratic presidential primary.

According to a tweet shared by “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter, any town hall that was canceled would be rescheduled after the Senate concluded the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.
