President Trump tweeted that the White House will hold a 'news conference' about the major spending bill passed by Congress on Thursday. Friday morning, Trump threatened to veto the bill, hours ahead of a midnight deadline and a possible government shutdown. 

Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have released their rebuttal to Republicans' memo about the Russia investigation and Justice Department surveillance practices. President Trump agreed to declassify and release the Republican document, which raises concerns about partisan influence in the FBI’s probe of Russian contacts with the 2016 Trump campaign. Democrats requested the release of their longer counter-memo and President Trump initially denied that request, sending it back for redactions.
