WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham says the FBI has promised members of the Senate Judiciary Committee a classified briefing soon to discuss whether there was any warrant issued for surveillance of any of Donald Trump's associates during the 2016 presidential campaign. Graham says he has seen no evidence to support Trump's claim that the Obama administration wiretapped him last year.

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) — President Donald Trump is again taking aim at environmental regulations from the Obama era that Trump says are hurting economic growth. He says his administration will re-examine federal requirements governing the fuel efficiency of cars and trucks. He previewed his announcement during a round-table meeting with auto company executives and workers before a speech in Michigan.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The reporter who obtained documents from Donald Trump's 2005 tax returns says it's entirely possible that he received the returns from Trump himself or someone close to him. David Cay Johnston tells ABC that Trump "has a long history of leaking things about himself." Johnston says he received the documents in the mail, unsolicited. Trump, on Twitter, ridiculed that account, describing the Pulitzer prize winner as "a reporter who nobody ever heard of." The documents indicate that for that year, he paid $36.5 million in income taxes -- thanks to a tax that he has since tried to eliminate.

MIAMI (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a decision is months away on seeking the death penalty for the suspect in a Florida airport shooting rampage. Esteban Santiago, of Anchorage, Alaska, is accused in the Jan. 6 shooting that killed five and wounded six at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas Senate has passed a North Carolina-style "bathroom bill" that targets transgender people, but the proposal still faces big obstacles from becoming law. Today's vote came over opposition from big business, the National Football League and hundreds of people who packed the Texas Capitol last week during 13 hours of public testimony. The measure would require people to use public bathrooms that correspond with the sex on their birth certificate. The Republican state House speaker has denounced the proposal as bad for business. Republican Gov. Greg Abbott hasn't taken a clear public position on it.
