The White House is rejecting calls from some Republicans to defund the FBI. White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates told CNN on Wednesday that President Biden rejects defunding the police and other law enforcement agencies, including the FBI.        A federal judge is expected to decide today whether to unseal the affidavit used to carry out a search warrant on former President Donald Trump's Florida home. Trump has called for the documents' immediate release. But the Justice Department says doing so would compromise the ongoing criminal investigation into Trump allegedly taking classified materials from the White House.        The suspect in the killings of at least two Muslim men in New Mexico will remain in jail until his trial. A Second Judicial District Court judge ruled Wednesday that releasing Muhammad Syed would pose a risk to the public. Syed is charged with murder in the July and August killings of two Muslim men and is the primary suspect in two other murders.        A Texas school district has pulled more than 40 books, including the Bible, from its library and classrooms. The Keller Independent School District, north of Fort Worth, has removed 42 books that were challenged by parents and community members during the last school year. The district says the books are being reviewed under a new school board policy approved last week.        Police in Auckland, New Zealand say human remains that were in suitcases a family bought as part of a storage unit auction last week are those of two children. Inspectors told reporters today that the children were between the ages of five and ten years old and that the suitcases had been in storage for three to four years.        A critically-injured Little League World Series player is getting a big assist from his favorite Major League ballplayer. Easton Oliverson of Utah's Snow Canyon Little League has a fractured skull after falling from a bunk bed in his sleep at the players' dormitory in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Dodgers star Mookie Betts sent the 12-year-old a supportive video through Instagram on Wednesday.
