Hour 1:
 John, Mark Thompson, & Francesca. Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) says he doesn't think the GOP memo critical of the FBI's investigation of the Trump campaign should be released. Republicans on Capitol Hill, backed by an angry President Donald Trump, defied pleas from the FBI and Democrats on Friday and released a previously classified memo alleging misconduct by senior U.S. officials investigating Trump's presidential campaign.

Hour 2: Brett Erlich, Francesca, & Simone. The father who tried to attack former Olympics gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar in a Michigan courtroom this morning apologized for his actions but made it clear that he wishes the worst for Nassar. Firing back at criticism from Jay-Z, President Donald Trump went too far when he claimed the black unemployment rate is the lowest in recorded history “because of my policies.”
 While it’s true that the black unemployment rate recently reached its lowest level in decades, the rate has been in steady decline for about the last seven years. The Terrifying Rise of Alt-Right Fight Clubs. White nationalists are learning mixed martial arts to prepare for race war.
