WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump earned $153 million and paid $36.5 million in income taxes in 2005, paying a roughly 25 percent effective tax rate, according to documents disclosed last night on MSNBC. The White House pushed back even before the release of the material, saying that publishing the information was illegal.

UNDATED (AP) — A day before it's supposed to go into effect, President Donald Trump's revised travel ban will be scrutinized in federal courtrooms across the country today. More than a half-dozen states are trying to derail the executive order affecting travelers from six Muslim-majority nations.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch voters are casting ballots in parliamentary elections that are being closely watched as a possible indicator of the strength of far-right populism. Two-term Prime Minister Mark Rutte's (RUH'-tuhz) right-wing party was leading in polls ahead of the vote, with the anti-Islam party of lawmaker Geert Wilders a close second.

NEW YORK (AP) — Falling temperatures and icy conditions on roads and sidewalks across the Northeast are now the concern, following a late-season storm that plastered the region with sleet and snow. Tuesday's powerful nor'easter paralyzed much of the Washington-to-Boston corridor, but fell short of predicted snowfall totals in New York, Boston and Philadelphia.

SEATTLE (AP) — In Seattle, a gasoline pump burst into flames after being struck by a vehicle in a scene caught on surveillance video. KOMO reports the Monday night crash involved an Uber driver carrying a fare. The driver apparently tried to brake and lost control. A passenger was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
