3 Things To Know Today

1 U.S. Citizen Detained In Saudi Arabia

President Trump has said he believes Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman regarding the murder of “Washington Post” journalist Jamal Khashoggi. But how does he feel about an American citizen currently being detained – and tortured – in the kingdom? That remains to be seen, but a statement from the State Department says claims of mistreatment by Dr. Walid Fitaihi have been raised with Saudi authorities. Fitaihi is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. He has been held by Saudi authorities for several months. "We can confirm that U.S. citizen Walid Fitaihi is detained in Saudi Arabia, we are providing him consular services, and we have raised his case with the Government of Saudi Arabia," the statement reads. “The U.S. Department of State and our embassies and consulates abroad have no greater responsibility than the protection of U.S. citizens overseas."

2 National Weather Service Confirms At Least EF-4 Tornado Hit Alabama

The National Weather Service says the damage from Sunday's tornadoes in eastern Alabama indicates that there was a tornado of at least EF-4 in strength. In other words, it could have produced winds at least 170 miles-per-hour. And while the death toll still remains at 23, officials believe that number could rise since there are still a number of people missing. Either way, this storm brought the highest tornado death toll in the United States since 2013 – and in this case? At least three children – age 6, 9 and 10 – were among the confirmed victims. As for what happens next, President Trump says America's heart goes out to those affected. In a White House photo-op yesterday, Trump said the U.S. government “has their backs.” In a tweet, Trump also said he has directed FEMA "to give Alabama A-Plus treatment."

3 Trump Vows To Cooperate With House Probe, Calls It Big Hoax

Another day, another investigation getting launched into President Trump. That’s clearly his view as the House Judiciary Committee has launched an Obstruction and Abuse of Power investigation into the administration. Will he cooperate? Yes. At a White House photo op, the President was asked about it – and while he vows to cooperate with inquest, he calls the thing a “political hoax.” Trump added that he “cooperates all the time with everybody." The judiciary panel is requesting a massive amount of documents – from more than 80 people – with ties to Mr. Trump or his administration in general. Trump also reiterated there was "no collusion" between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.
