Home Sales Hit Three-Year High Sub-prime mortgages led the housing market into decline, one of the major factors in the Great Recession. Now the market is looking up, at least in some places. Home sales have reached their highest volume in three years, with 12 consecutive months of prices higher than the year before. It's the first time that's happened since 2006. We get an update from Walter Molony, spokesman for the National Association of Realtors , and Julie Schmit, who reports on housing for USA Today .
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.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.

We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
