The Congressional Budget Office released its assessment of the latest version of House Republicans health-care bill on Wednesday, and if Republicans were hoping for big changes this time around, they didn't get them.

THE BIG IDEA: James Comey was not alone. Even Donald Trump’s own pick for director of national intelligence, former Republican Sen. Dan Coats, refused to comply with a request by the president to push back against the FBI investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and the Russian government. Trump also reached out to Adm. Mike Rogers 142
