Sunken Ship Treasure Hunter Arrested After Being on the Lam In 1857, a ship loaded with ore from the California Gold Rush sank during a hurricane off South Carolina. In 1988, a scientist from Ohio discovered the wreck of the SS Central America and recovered 21 tons of gold bars and coins. He sold some—but then became a federal fugitive. Treasure hunter Tommy Thompson was arrested by federal marshals in West Palm Beach, Florida, but he’ll be extradited to Columbus, Ohio. That’s where investors, insurance companies and crew members are hoping to recover money he promised them from the SS Central America. Among the investors is the company that publishes the Columbus Monthly, where Michelle Sullivan is Assistant Editor.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
