WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, facing defeat on his "Obamacare" replacement, says he will push the Senate to pass a clean repeal bill.

Authorities say several more trained dogs also will be part of the search Tuesday for Hector Garnica, which still is being called a search and rescue rather than a body recovery.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney-client privilege is making it difficult for lawyers representing the president and his associates to present a single, public explanation of the June 2016 meeting with a Russian attorney that the president's son and son-in-law attended. President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner all have their own legal teams, and former campaign aides who expect to be caught up in the expanding probes are also shopping for representation.
