WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee says his committee will expand its investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election to include President Donald Trump's claim that Trump Tower was wiretapped. Devin Nunes (NOO'-nehs) of California says his committee "will make inquiries into whether the government was conducting surveillance activities on any political party's campaign officials or surrogates." He says the committee will continue to investigate the matter "if the evidence warrants it."

WASHINGTON (AP) — The top House Democrat says it's "just ridiculous" for President Donald Trump to claim that former President Barack Obama would have ordered any wiretap of an American citizen. Nancy Pelosi calls the charge a "smear." She tells CNN's "State of the Union" that Trump is following the playbook of making something up, having the media report it and then saying everybody is writing about it.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Four members of a motorcycle gang have been indicted on charges they conspired to kill a man who was attempting to launch a Texas chapter of the Hell's Angels in Austin.

WARWICK, Mass. (AP) — A small Massachusetts town is grieving after a woman and her four children were killed in a house fire.

MAYVILLE, Wis. (AP) — Firefighters in the Wisconsin community of Mayville had to respond to a fire at a familiar scene — their own firehouse. Firefighters were dispatched last night after a passer-by reported seeing flames at the station, which isn't staffed around the clock. The volunteer fire department says crews arrived to find a vehicle on fire inside the station and put it out. Investigators are still trying to figure out what sparked the fire.
