Email scandal

After a political furor over a private meeting with Bill Clinton, Attorney General Loretta Lynch will forego her right to act independently in the decision on whether to bring charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a personal email server.

Donald Trump will speak to about 4,000 conservatives at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, where he lost the Republican caucus to Ted Cruz three months ago. Now, the presumptive presidential nominee is returning to try to unite the party ahead of this month's convention.

Whiff of terror

Three suicide bombers are believed to have planned their devastating attack on Turkey's bustling international airport at an apartment in Istanbul. Turkish police raided the apartment the morning after the massacre, but a local plumber was there before, and tells CBS News he noticed something strange.
