WASHINGTON (AP) — The House is expecting to receive the first files of underlying evidence from Robert Mueller's report soon.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's foreign minister has warned the U.S. that it "cannot expect to stay safe" after launching what he described as an economic war against Tehran. Mohammad Javad Zarif took a hard-line stance amid a visit on Monday by Germany's top diplomat seeking to defuse tensions. The ongoing tensions take root in President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. In Washington, the State Department dismissed Zarif's comments as "typical behavior" by Iran.

Mexico's foreign secretary says there is nothing further to announce.
