NEW YORK (AP) — A Fox News Channel legal analyst cited by President Donald Trump and his spokesman for claiming that British intelligence helped former President Barack Obama spy on Trump won't be in front of Fox cameras in the near future. A person with knowledge of the situation says Andrew Napolitano has been sidelined by Fox. He said on air last week on "Fox & Friends" that he had three intelligence sources who said Obama went "outside the chain of command" to snoop on Trump. The allegation was knocked down Monday by FBI Director James Comey during testimony to lawmakers. Comey also dismissed Trump's claim his phones at Trump Tower were wiretapped.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The company building the Dakota Access pipeline says the pipeline has been subjected to recent "coordinated physical attacks." That's according to court briefs filed late Monday by Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners. The documents don't explain where the attacks happened but say they "pose threats to life, physical safety and the environment." The Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux tribes have battled the $3.8 billion pipeline in court for months, arguing it's a threat to water and their right to practice their religion. The pipeline stretches across four states to Illinois.
