On Monday, President Donald Trump is expected to announce his nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Given the president's promise to appoint justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade, it's widely understood that his nominee will pose a clear danger to women's reproductive rights.

Rudolph Giuliani, an attorney for President Donald Trump, said Sunday that he has counseled the president against granting a pardon to his longtime fixer Michael Cohen, at least for now. "I have advised the president, which he understands: no discussion of pardons," Giuliani said in an appearance on ABC News' "This Week."

If Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to North Korea on Friday and Saturday was designed to ease worries about the progress on denuclearization talks between Washington and Pyongyang, it seems to have failed.

ROSEVILLE, Minn. - The lights from the police car flash blue and red against the white minivan. An African-American family of six sits inside the Nissan Quest in this first-ring suburb of St. Paul on a warm June evening. Mom's at the wheel, grandma's in the passenger seat, and four children, including a boy in a wheelchair, fill in the two rows in the back. The car tells a story of poverty: Plastic covers a broken window; rust lines the wheel wells.
