WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says Sean Spicer is a "wonderful person who took tremendous abuse from the Fake News Media." Trump also says in a late Friday tweet that Spicer's future is "bright." Spicer resigned earlier in the day, six months into the administration, after Trump tapped New York businessman and political supporter Anthony Scaramucci for the job of White House communications director.

JERUSALEM (AP) — The United Nations says Secretary-General Antonio Guterres "deeply deplores" the death of three Palestinians in clashes with Israeli security forces. And he's urging Israeli and Palestinian leaders to refrain from actions that could further escalate the volatile situation in Jerusalem's Old City. U.N. deputy spokesman Farhan Haq says Guterres also calls on all political, religious and community leaders "to help reduce tension."

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. John McCain's treatment for brain cancer could keep him out of Washington for weeks, perhaps months, and yet it's unlikely anyone will challenge his extended leave. Congress has a long tradition in which no one questions ailing lawmakers taking time to recover. For starters, it's just poor form. And, frankly, it's up to the stricken member of Congress and their doctors to decide when _ or even if _ they return to work. Some have recuperated away from the Capitol for a year or more.

LOVELOCK, Nev. (AP) — When O.J. Simpson gets out of prison in October after nine years, he will have some sports mementos, his NFL pension and, with any luck, certain life skills he says he acquired behind bars. Beyond that, the 70-year-old sports legend faces an uncertain future. One expert says his opportunities in the big-money world of sports are "slim and none."

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Post reports that the Russian ambassador to the U.S. has said he discussed election-related issues with Sen. Jeff Sessions when the two men met during the 2016 presidential race. The Post is citing anonymous U.S. officials who described U.S. intelligence intercepts of Ambassador Sergey Kislyak's descriptions of his meetings with Sessions.
