FBI director nominee vows independence in confirmation hearing 6 MIN, 32 SEC

Christopher Wray, nominated to head the FBI, told a Senate committee today he was not asked to pledge political "loyalty" to the president and that he never would.

John Bresnahan, who is following Wray's confirmation for Politico, says when several senators raised the issue of independence Wray repeatedly affirmed that his values are to the constitution and rule of law rather than loyalty to the president.

Donald Trump, Jr. and the Russian emails 33 MIN, 23 SEC

After releasing a chain of e-mails, the President’s son stands accused of participating in Russia’s assault on American democracy. Last night he told Sean Hannity, he "probably would have done things a little differently," but even with "20-20 hindsight" he didn’t do anything wrong.

In response to Washington talk about possible crime — even treason — he says no serious information was even exchanged. What’s been revealed about Russia’s subversive activities? How much will it matter to the President’s base of supporters?

Iceberg the size of Delaware breaks off Antarctic ice shelf 9 MIN, 53 SEC

For several years, scientists have been watching a crack 120 miles long on the Antarctic Peninsula. Now it's produced one of the largest icebergs ever recorded. Eric Rignot is a professor of Earth System Science at the University of California at Irvine, and a principal scientist for the Radar Science and Engineering Section at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Rignot says the calving provides a glimpse of Planet Earth's future.
