Following a July 9 report in The New York Times, Trump Jr. now admits he had been promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton. Trump Jr. quickly added nothing ever came out of the meeting while White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus called the meeting a "big nothing burger."
  • Bureau of Land Management fire crews continue to battle a fast-moving wildfire that has swept across land just southeast of the Owyhee County community of Bruneau.

Meanwhile, BLM crews are also battling the Antelope Fire which, according to KMVT-TV, has jumped Highway 26 several times in Gooding County.
