11. What's next in the impeachment inquiry as Congress returns -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress is returning from a two-week recess on Tuesday, but some lawmakers barely left Washington.

Three House committees investigating impeachment worked through the break, issuing multiple subpoenas and holding depositions with State Department officials relevant to the inquiry .

The probe was sparked by a whistleblower who revealed that Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter — potentially in exchange for military aid money. Trump, who has defended his conduct as "perfect," last week publicly called on China to investigate the Bidens, too.

That revelation persuaded Democrats to move ahead with an inquiry that could produce articles of impeachment.

Adam Schiff, the Intelligence Committee chairman taking the lead in the impeachment review , criticized him "illegally."

28. What's next as House committees launch impeachment probes -

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Democrats are planning a rapid start to their push for impeachment of President Donald Trump, with hearings and depositions starting this week.

33. Stocks drop as Dems eye Trump inquiry -

Stocks dropped on Wall Street Tuesday as House Democrats met to consider a potential impeachment probe of President Donald Trump and a report showed a drop in consumer confidence.

After a higher open, stocks declined as the Conference Board, a business research group, reported its consumer confidence index fell to 125.1 in September from a revised reading of 134.2 in August. That's worrisome because consumer spending has underpinned the economy during a slowdown in manufacturing.

34. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's twisted reality on guns, environment -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is twisting reality on gun control and the environment.

Pressed over the weekend for his position on gun legislation, the president declined to answer whether he would support expanded background checks in the wake of deadly mass shootings and blamed Democrats in Congress for "doing nothing" on the issue.

WASHINGTON (AP) — When he resigned as defense secretary last December, Jim Mattis thought it might take two months to install a successor. That seemed terribly long at the time.

47. Trump defends Acosta, will look into Epstein plea deal -

Remember earlier this year when it seemed possible that state lawmakers could agree on bills to make it easier for people to vote?

50. AP FACT CHECK: Obama is a silent partner in Trump's boasts -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has a silent partner behind several of the accomplishments he likes to boast about: Barack Obama.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The special counsel's Trump-Russia report will be out on Thursday for all to see. But not all of it.

58. US to allow lawsuits over properties seized by Castro's Cuba -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration on Wednesday opened the door for lawsuits against foreign firms operating on properties Cuba seized from Americans after the 1959 revolution.

63. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's exaggerations about the Russia probe -

74. AP FACT CHECK: Trump spins fiction about diversity visas -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is going after the "horror show" known as the diversity visa lottery program. His description of it is pure fiction.

He said drugs are flowing across the hinterlands from Mexico, not from border crossings, and suggested that the federal prison population is laden with hardened criminals who are in the U.S. illegally. Neither claim is substantiated.

75. AP FACT CHECK: Trump declares emergency with faulty claims -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Friday declared a national emergency at the southern border while acknowledging that rapid construction of a wall is not a necessity, but rather his preference.

With as many as two dozen Democrats potentially running for the White House and no immediate front-runner, the money race in the early days of the primary is largely frozen, according to fundraisers.

More often, donors are staying on the sidelines until the contours of the primary take shape.

79. Early 2020 Democratic field puts diversity in spotlight -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The early days of the Democratic primary campaign are highlighting the party's diversity as it seeks a nominee who can build a coalition to take on President Donald Trump.
