As they investigate President Donald Trump, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee will hold their first official hearing in what they are calling an impeachment investigation.
Corey Lewandowski, Trump's outspoken former campaign manager, is scheduled to appear Tuesday to discuss former special counsel Robert Mueller's report.
But it's unlikely that Democrats will get much new information. A devoted friend and supporter of the president, Lewandowski isn't expected to elaborate much beyond what he told Mueller's investigators last year. Mueller himself testified this summer, with no bombshells. Two other witnesses who were subpoenaed alongside Lewandowski — former White House aides Rick Dearborn and Rob Porter — won't show up at all, on orders from the White House.

The Secret Service is purchasing Jet Skis, in part to protect President Donald Trump's family as they participate in water sports.
A Secret Service purchase memo says the agency needs two Jet Skis and a trailer to “enhance safety/security for protective assignments on the water.”
The Secret Service needs the Jet Skis to protect the first family at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, and in the Hamptons, on Long Island, the memo says.

The voluntary recall affects bags of flour with a better if used by date of Sept. 6, 2020, a recall notice on Monday said. The recall was issued out of "abundance of care" after the bacterium E. coli O26 was found "during sampling."

Iran's supreme leader announced on Tuesday that "there will be no talks with the U.S. at any level" — remarks apparently meant to end all speculation about a possible U.S.-Iran meeting between the two countries' presidents at the U.N. later this month.
Iranian state TV quoted Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as saying this is the position of the entire leadership of the country and that "all officials in the Islamic Republic unanimously believe" this.
"There will be no talks with the U.S. at any level," he said.

Talks continued into the night but there was no end to the strike against General Motors.
The walkout by upward of 49,000 United Auto Workers members has brought to a standstill more than 50 factories and parts warehouses in the union's first strike against the No. 1 U.S. automaker in over a decade.
Workers left factories and formed picket lines shortly after midnight Monday in the dispute over a new four-year contract. The union's top negotiator said in a letter to the company that the strike could have been averted had the company made its latest offer sooner.
Israelis vote Tuesday in an unprecedented repeat election that will decide whether longtime Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stays in power despite a looming indictment on corruption charges.
Netanyahu, the longest serving leader in Israeli history, is seeking a fourth consecutive term in office, and fifth overall. But he faces a stiff challenge from retired military chief Benny Gantz, whose centrist Blue and White party is running even with Netanyahu's Likud. Both parties could struggle to form a majority coalition with smaller allies, though, forcing them into a potential unity government.

A Taliban suicide bomber on a motorcycle targeted a campaign rally by President Ashraf Ghani in northern Afghanistan on Tuesday, killing at least 24 people and wounding 31. Ghani was present at the venue but was unharmed, according to his campaign chief.
Just hours later, an explosion struck near the U.S. Embassy in Kabul but details on that blast were not immediately known. The Taliban claimed both attacks.
The violence comes as Afghanistan faces presidential elections on Sept. 28 — a vote the Taliban vehemently oppose. The insurgent group has warned Afghans not to vote in the election, and said their fighters would target election campaigns as well as polling stations.

Purdue Pharma gets its day in court Tuesday after the OxyContin maker filed for bankruptcy and negotiated a potential multi-billion dollar settlement to resolve thousands of lawsuits.
An initial hearing will be held in federal court in White Plains, New York, for the Chapter 11 bankruptcy case. Purdue filed for bankruptcy protection late Sunday, the first step in a plan it says would provide $10 billion to $12 billion to help reimburse state and local governments and clean up the damage done by powerful prescription painkillers and illegal opioids, including heroin.
These drugs have been blamed for more than 400,000 deaths in the U.S. in the past two decades.
Facing thousands of cheering supporters in the nation's largest city, Democratic presidential contender Elizabeth Warren on Monday decried President Donald Trump as "corruption in the flesh" and outlined her plans to root out corruption in the White House, Congress and courts.
"Corruption has put our planet at risk. Corruption has broken our economy. And corruption is breaking our democracy," said Warren, a Massachusetts senator who has emerged as a leading presidential contender.
While aggressive, the message was a familiar one. Warren has embraced corruption as a central campaign theme from the beginning of her 2020 presidential bid. But rarely has Warren addressed such a crowd with such a symbolic backdrop.

The U.S. continued to build its case Monday that Iran was behind the fiery weekend attack on key Saudi Arabian oil facilities that raised new war worries and sent energy prices soaring.
Three people familiar with the intelligence told NBC News that American intelligence showed that the attack was launched from Iran – an assessment that is likely to escalate tensions between Washington, D.C., and Tehran.
Legendary Red Sox slugger David Ortiz says that, despite not being 100% healed after he was shot in his native Dominican Republic in June, he's not afraid of returning to the country he loves.
But he will be more careful when he does return — just one of the many lessons he's learned in the last 99 days.
"I spent six weeks without being able to eat or to drink any water, and you don't know the value of it until you face the situation," he said.

President Donald Trump made a pocketbook appeal for reelection in the Democratic-leaning state of New Mexico on Monday, telling voters that his energy policies have made the state wealthier and warning that the gains could disappear if the proposal known as the Green New Deal takes effect.
"The Democrats want to completely annihilate New Mexico's economy," claimed Trump, who boasted that an oil and gas boom during his administration has helped increase the state's revenues. "The Democrats will never get the chance because New Mexico will never give them that chance."
Trump went to New Mexico, which has not backed a Republican for president since 2004, to try to turn the state red and expand his grip on the Electoral College in next year's presidential election.

Global energy prices spiked more than 14% Monday after a weekend attack on key oil facilities in Saudi Arabia caused the worst disruption to world supplies on record. It was an increase on par with the 1991 Gulf War and analysts said heightened tensions in the Middle East could keep prices elevated for the foreseeable future. The wider economic fallout will depend on just how long the Saudi supply disruption lasts.
On a quiet Monday afternoon in Santa Cruz, families lounged on the beach as a few swimmers played in the waves and a lone fisherman cast his line in the water from the cliffs off in the distance.
It was, by all accounts, a beautiful day. But just a few miles away at the Santa Cruz NOAA research campus, scientists see those perfect conditions as a quiet omen of what's brewing just over the horizon.
"We're talking about a huge area of much warmer-than-normal surface temperatures over the northeast Pacific Ocean," said NOAA research scientist Nate Mantua.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., responded to calls for an investigation into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in light of new sexual misconduct allegations by saying that the panel has "our hands full with impeaching the president," NBC News reported.
In a radio interview with WNYC on Monday, Nadler was asked if he’d be concerned with Democrats thinking he’s not taking the Kavanaugh allegations seriously enough. He said his committee has too much on its plate.
"We have our hands full with impeaching the president right now and that’s going to take up our limited resources and time for a while," Nadler said.
