WASHINGTON (AP) — An associate of Rudy Giuliani who is charged with federal campaign finance violations is willing to cooperate with Congress in its impeachment inquiry.

MONTREAL (AP) — In a country that touts its turquoise lakes, sparkling springs and rushing rivers, there are no national mandates to test drinking water for lead. An investigation by a consortium of Canadian journalists and The Associated Press found that tap water in some cities is worse than Flint, Michigan, at the peak of its crisis.

NEW YORK (AP) — A court filing says President Donald Trump's phone records show a call to a former "Apprentice" contestant on a day when she says he subjected her to unwanted kissing and groping. Records filed in Summer Zervos' suit and obtained by The AP indicate Zervos got a call from Trump's phone on Dec. 21, 2007, when she says he invited her to a dinner that spiraled into sexual assault. Trump lawyer Marc Kasowitz said Monday Zervos' claims "are entirely meritless and not corroborated by any documents."
