Intense storms are expected in the Plains states this weekend. The National Weather Service is warning people from South Dakota to West Texas to prepare for hail, high winds and possibly even tornadoes. The cities that could see the worst of the storm system are Dallas, Houston and Oklahoma City.       President Trump is accusing those who "spied" on his campaign in 2016 of "treason." The President said those behind the start of the Russia investigation should get long prison sentences. Attorney General Bill Barr has asked a U.S. Attorney to investigate how the Russia investigation began.       As one trade war heats up, another one is coming to an end. President Trump announced he's reached a deal with Canada and Mexico to remove tariffs on metal imports. He hopes the move will help win passage of the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement. Last week Trump raised tariffs on Chinese imports, causing the markets to react to that trade war.       Two Indiana politicians are continuing their war of words. South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg [[ BOOT-edge-edge ]] said on the Hugh Hewitt Show today that Vice President Mike Pence backs "homophobic policies." He did say that Pence, the state's former governor and senator, has always been polite to him when the crossed paths. Pence has said that Buttigieg is attacking his Christian faith.       The Air Force is confirming that there was live ammunition on board the fighter jet that crashed into a Southern California warehouse Thursday. They did not provide any additional information. The 215 Freeway between the warehouse and the air base was closed for more than 24 hours as a precaution.        The government is asking a federal judge to return a letter written by Alexander Hamilton in 1780 to its archives. An employee of the Massachusetts Archives stole that and other letters written by the founding fathers, including George Washington, in the 1930s and '40s. A South Carolina family said their ancestor bought it and didn't know it was stolen in the 1940s, and they want to auction it off.
