The White House announces plans to strip security clearance from former national security officials because they've been critical of President Donald Trump over the Russia investigation. Federal prosecutors now have a tape of the president and his former attorney Michael Cohen discussing a payment to a woman who alleged she had an affair with Trump.  And Secretary of State Mike Pompeo testifies before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

This week President Trump presented his National Security Strategy, calling Russia and China U.S. rivals and Iran and North Korea rogue states. A massive GOP tax overhaul unpopular with approximately 50 percent of Americans is headed into law. Congress addresses further accusations of sexual harassment as some senators backtrack on their earlier call for Al Franken to resign. And the Russian investigation moves forward.
