WASHINGTON (AP) — WikiLeaks is suggesting that it might share sensitive details it has learned about CIA hacking tools with technology companies like Apple, Google and Microsoft -- whose products and services were targeted by U.S. government hackers. If the sharing takes place, that would give those companies a chance to identify and repair any flaws in their software and devices that were being exploited by U.S. spy agencies and some foreign allies. The tactics were described in nearly 9,000 pages of secret CIA files that WikiLeaks published yesterday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — When he was running for president, Donald Trump said, "I love WikiLeaks." That was after it published private and politically-damaging emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign manager. Now that WikiLeaks has revealed CIA hacking methods, White House spokesman Sean Spicer is denouncing this latest leak as one that "undermines our security, our country and our well-being." He says there's a "massive, massive difference" between WikiLeaks publishing stolen, personal emails of a political figure and publishing files about national security tools used by the CIA.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The leading trade group representing the nation's hospitals says it cannot support the House Republican health care bill in its current form. The American Hospital Association joins the American Medical Association, raising similar concerns that coverage for millions of people may be jeopardized. The hospital group represents nearly 5,000 such institutions nationwide.

SHANGHAI (AP) — China has granted preliminary approval for 38 new Trump trademarks. It's a move that offers a potential business foothold for President Donald Trump's family company. And it protects his name in a country that is notorious for counterfeiters. Public documents show that the trademarks cover everything from hotels and golf clubs to bodyguard services. Trump's lawyers in China applied for them in April of last year. But critics say his growing portfolio of China trademarks raises the possibility of conflicts of interest. Ethics lawyers say if he gets any special treatment in security trademark rights, it would violate the U.S. Constitution, which bans public servants from accepting anything of value from a foreign government.

NEW YORK (AP) — Energy companies have pulled stocks mostly lower on Wall Street as the price of oil slumped. U.S. benchmark crude dropped 5 percent to its lowest price since November after the government reported a big buildup in fuel stockpiles. Oil companies posted the biggest declines in the market. The S&P fell 5 points. The Dow lost 69. But the Nasdaq rose 3 points.
