WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House may be doubling down today on its allegations of government surveillance. Senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway suggests in comments to New Jersey's Bergen County Record that snooping may have gone beyond the president's accusation that former President Barack Obama had his phones tapped in Trump Tower. Like her boss, Conway offered no evidence. Some Republican lawmakers have asked for evidence by today.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Northeast is expected to turn white under a thick coating of snow in the next 24 hours or so. A powerful nor'easter could bring blizzard conditions and more than a foot of snow to some parts of the region. Farther south, even Washington D.C. is expecting six to 10 inches. It would be the capital region's first serious snow of the winter.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The maneuvering is well under way as an April 28 deadline looms for Congress to pass a huge package of leftover spending bills and avoid a partial government shutdown.

The letter also warns against adding other "poison pills."
