Mike Pompeo says the State Department is going to investigate the possible surveillance of Marie Yovanovitch [[ yo-VON-ah-vitch ]], the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. The Secretary of State said "We will do everything we need to do to evaluate whether there was something that took place there." Pompeo insisted that he knew nothing about it until news reports broke this week.        Three men are being charged with conspiracy to commit murder and participating in a criminal street gang as part of a hate group that wants to stage a gun rights rally in Virginia. The Wall Street Journal is reporting the three men from Georgia were arrested earlier this week in Maryland and Delaware, and discussed opening fire from different positions at Monday's rally.        A federal judge says the parents charged in the college admissions scandal will go on trial in staggered groups. One of those parents is former Full House star Lori Loughlin [[ LOCK-lin ]]. The government charged 36 parents in the Varsity Blues case and 20 of those have pled guilty.        Harvey Weinstein's trial on sexual assault charges is moving forward, as a jury has been seated in Manhattan Criminal Court. The 12-person jury is made up of seven men and five women, eight of whom are white and four are black. Weinstein faces rape charges in the case.       Black smoke is billowing the sky in western Pennsylvania. A tanker truck inside the garage exploded 35 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, sending two people to the hospital with burns. The explosion occurred shortly before 4:30 p.m. local time, causing the roof to collapse and risking several more propane trucks in the immediate vicinity.        Former Kansas City Royals owner and Walmart CEO David Glass has died. He was 84. Kansas City went to the World Series twice during his ownership, winning the title in 2015. New team owner John Sherman said Glass' passion for baseball and love for the city "was the driving force in bringing success" to the franchise.
