WASHINGTON (AP) — An AP investigation has found that Donald Trump's campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Manafort's business associate Rick Gates helped a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine secretly funnel at least $2.2 million to two prominent Washington lobbying firms in 2012. Under federal law, U.S. lobbyists must tell the Justice Department if they represent foreign leaders or their political parties.

GONZALES, La. (AP) — The Red Cross says more than 1,000 disaster volunteers have been mobilized from all 50 states to help with flood relief efforts in Louisiana. Flooding has killed 11 people and damaged at least 40,000 homes in the southern part of the state. And as water levels recede, areas downstream are becoming flooded as well.

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Police in Greenville, North Carolina, say a man accused of killing a woman and her three children is in custody. Police say the 39-year-old man, believed to have been the woman's boyfriend, was taken into custody just before midnight Tuesday near Richmond, Virginia. Police say the bodies of the woman and her children, all under 10, were found inside a townhome after concerned family members asked police to do a welfare check.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — It's been two weeks since police say a man with outstanding arrest warrants avoided capture by slipping into the New Jersey sewer system. Police have been looking for 31-year-old Keith Jean of Roselle since Aug. 3 when he jumped into the Passaic (puh-SAY'-ihk) River and entered a pipe that's connected to the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission's treatment plant in Newark. A camera-equipped robot failed to find any sign of Jean in the pipe, where deadly gases gather amid chemicals, bacteria and human waste.
