WASHINGTON (AP) — President Trump's choice to lead the FBI says he does not believe a special counsel investigation into possible coordination between Russia and the Trump election campaign is a "witch hunt." Christopher Wray's comments to a Senate panel represent a break with President Donald Trump, who has described the probe in those terms. Wray also told senators at his confirmation hearing that he would never let politics get in the way of the bureau's mission.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is turning up the heat on the Senate to pass a revamped Republican health care bill.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Pennsylvania prosecutor plans to announce at midnight Wednesday a major development in the investigation of four missing men. The four young men disappeared last week, and police said they suspected they were victims of foul play. A massive search for the four has been underway since Sunday of a farm north of Philadelphia. The son of the property's owners was arrested earlier Wednesday on charges he tried to sell the stolen car of one of the missing men and is being held on $5 million bond.
PARIS (AP) — President Donald Trump's visit to Paris on Thursday will take him to a city he has repeatedly derided _ and at the side of a French leader best known to Americans as the young man with the endless handshake. "I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris," Trump said last month in announcing he would pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord. Now French leader Emmanuel Macron is using the city to make a symbolic point: Trump will be his Bastille Day guest of honor.
