It's the final day of the DNC. Hillary Clinton has her big speech tonight, arguably the biggest one of her life.

Looking ahead to 2018, candidates to succeed Jerry Brown as governor of California have been schmoozing in Philadelphia along with other Democratic politicians.

After the leaks of DNC emails, Wikileaks has been criticized by some of the same people who once defended it.

The movie Tallulah comes out this Friday, it was one of the films from this year's Sundance Film Festival.

The Treasury Department announced a new rule that makes it harder for people to anonymously buy houses, which could have an impact on international criminals trying to launder money.
